I’d like to invite readers of InkjetTips.com to a free event this Friday evening 11/21/2008 from 6-8pm in New Brunswick, NJ at Alfa Art Gallery. I’ll primarily be showing a new series of pigment inkjet prints of images that are shown in my book, 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques, and I’ll be answering questions about inkjet printing. I’ll also be giving away 100 signed 11×14 posters (shown below):
It is an invitation only event, and an RSVP is requested to attend. To RSVP, please visit this page.
I hope to see some InkjetTips readers there.
All the best!
I’m very happy to announce that 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques: An Essential Printing Resource for Photographers was recently chosen as the winner in the “Photography: Instructional/How-To” category of The National Best Books 2008 Awards, sponsored by USA Book News. As I’m quoted in the press release below, I have many people to thank.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK – USABookNews.com, the premiere online magazine and review website for mainstream and independent publishing houses, announced the winners and finalists of THE NATIONAL “BEST BOOKS” 2008 AWARDS (NBBA) on October 20, 2008.

Andrew Darlow, author of the 528 page book says: “I’m extremely honored that 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques was chosen as the winner in the ‘Photography: Instructional/How-To’ category of The National Best Books 2008 Awards, sponsored by USA Book News.

It is a privilege to share the pages of the book with them.”
I just posted this announcement on The Imaging Buffet about the two hour seminar that I’m giving this week at the PhotoPlus Expo at the Javits Center in New York City. I’ve been busy testing new papers, and revisiting many others that I’ve used over the years. I’m also testing and researching new printers so that I have all the info I need to share my thoughts and experiences.
Below is a description of my seminar:
How To Choose the Right Inkjet Printers and Papers (TC8)
Thursday, Oct 23, 2008: 3:45 PM – 5:45 PM
This lecture/demonstration by Andrew Darlow—photographer, consultant and author—covers the following: an overview of pro-quality printers from Canon, Epson and HP; a description of more than 20 recommended inkjet papers (including glossy, fiber gloss, and watercolor); and tips for optimizing print quality with specific papers and printers, such as how to effectively coat papers and canvas for better protection and longevity. Selected prints output from Canon, Epson and HP printers will be on display, and participants will receive more than 25 letter-sized blank sheets of high-end inkjet papers for testing. Handouts describing the papers and products discussed during the workshop will also be provided.
As I count them up, I will actually be giving to each participant more than 40 letter-sized blank sheets of high-end inkjet papers (2 sheets each more than 20 gloss, semi-gloss, fiber gloss and fiber-semi-gloss, matte and watercolor papers) from a number of different companies. These were chosen by me because I’ve tested them and think that they are worth trying (primarily if you have a pigment-based inkjet printer).
There are only 100 spaces available for this workshop. To check pricing, or to register, visit the PhotoPlus Expo website registration page.

I was recently interviewed by Scott Bourne of TWIP (This Week in Photography) about some of the inkjet printers I recommend (you can see the comments that follow the article for one correction about a RIP I mentioned).
Here is a link to the article where you can either subscribe to the podcast or just listen to the interview as an mp3.
I think that the TWiP site offers a wealth of info about photography and imaging.
