Upcoming Fine-Art Inkjet Printing Workshop in New Jersey on 8/9/2008

On Saturday, August 9, 2008 from 10:00AM-5:00PM, I’ll be giving a fine-art inkjet printing full day workshop entitled How to Prepare Files and Make Gallery-Quality Prints at Nancy Ori Studio in Berkeley Heights, NJ.

During the workshop, I’ll be showing many print samples, I will go step-by-step through a recommended printmaking workflow using Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Lightroom, and other applications, and I will demonstrate how to make and use custom profiles. Also, each participant will have at least two prints made from their supplied photo or other image on pigment-based inkjet printers (13-inch-wide models from HP and Epson).

A two-page PDF brochure with pricing and information on how to register can be found here.

If you are interested in future workshops, check my teaching and workshop schedule here, and for private consulting via phone or in-person, feel free to contact me using the form on this page, or via cell phone at 732-742-0123.

I hope to meet some InkjetTips.com (and 301 Inkjet Tips & Techniques) readers there!

Epson Adds “Focal Points,” a New Addition to their Pro Imaging Site

I just had a chance to look over this new addition to Epson’s site, and found it very impressive. The new addition showcases how Epson’s Pro Imaging products are being used by some of the most respected and well-known photographers in the world to make fine art prints. The stories, photographs and videos on the new site are very inspiring, and I highly recommend taking a look.

Legion Paper Conducting Print Auction to Raise Money Following California Forest Fires

I just received this announcement for a very worthwhile cause, and wanted to share this news:

Legion Paper prides itself on developing papers that meet the industry’s highest standards of quality and is equally committed to establishing and maintaining relationships with esteemed artists. The company’s latest charitable initiative is a testament to both these missions and of personal meaning to its Southern California office.

In the wake of last year’s September 2007 wildfires in San Diego, Legion approached a handful of its most devoted users and friends asking them to share their favorite California-themed landscape images.

After receiving great response, Legion sent paper to participating artists and compiled assortments of six California-themed prints in limited edition Moab Chinle Economy Folios. The books are now being auctioned online through Ebay’s “Giving Works” with 100% of the proceeds donated to raise money for the Glendale, California Red Cross.

Participating artists include Barbara Bordnick, Chris Conrad, Jim Graham, Douglas Kirkland, Judith Monteferrante and Michael Zide.

Legion Paper invites you to visit this page to bid on the prints. Bidding starts at $250.
