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.
I just posted an announcement about the newest Epson Print Academy, which is a live, 15 city event that will be launched on Nov. 8 in Atlanta, GA.

I just posted an article on ImagingBuffet.com with some info about Lightroom 2, which was just released. There are some new printing tools incorporated into the program. You can find the article here.
On Thursday, August 14, 2008 from 10:00AM-5:00PM, I’ll be conducting another full-day fine-art inkjet printing workshop entitled: How to Prepare Files and Make Gallery-Quality Prints at Nancy Ori Studio in Berkeley Heights, NJ.
Five of the same full-day workshops have already filled, but as of today (7/14/2008), some space remains for this workshop. For a full description of this full day workshop (limited to just five participants), I’ve created a two page brochure with a full overview of the class. You can download it below:

All the best!
