Fine Art Digital Printmaking: Why and How with Cheryl Kelleher Walsh & Eric Joseph – (One session)
- July 21, 2018
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Seminar – Part of Exposure Weekend 2018.
Performed by two recognized experts in their respective fields, this seminar addresses two of the most important but rarely discussed product of being a true photographic artist – the final print.
Cheryl Kelleher Walsh, leading Underwater Fine Art Portrait Photographer and successful Portrait Business Owner, will discuss why creating her own fine art prints has contributed to her growth as a photographic artist and taken her business to the next level. She will share the powerful impact she has experienced by feeling like a “complete artist,” coming full circle from inception of idea, execution of concept, mastery in editing and completion of a tangible, final physical, self-created, fine art print. She will present her art as a context for helping you understand why printing one’s own work is such an integral part of being a successful and fulfilled artist.
Eric Joseph, recognized expert in professional digital printing, will present the secrets of digital printmaking, providing you with a sense of confidence, truly useful technical knowledge, and the pathway to making you a better artist. Bring a flash/hard drive with a few images that represent your work. Eric will print your images on a variety of papers, allowing you to experience the magic of seeing and feeling your own work as it was meant to be printed.
“Photography has always been a combination of art and science.”
Cheryl will advocate for the art and Eric will clearly convey the science.
This could be the most important seminar you ever attend!
In an overwhelmingly chaotic world, Southern California based underwater fine art portrait artist Cheryl Walsh (http://cherylwalshfineart.com/) finds her inspiration in an atmosphere of peaceful solitude. In the depths of her underwater studio, she works with the quiet currents that slow down time, bring vibrancy to colors, and leave her subjects virtually weightless. The liquid atmosphere, invisible but ever present in the reflection on the water’s surface, is a mirroring of the duality that personifies life. Her underwater portrait fine art photography is described alternately as old-world painterly and photo-realistic, traditional and surreal. Combining the science of working underwater with the art of photography, she utilizes vintage and avant-garde fashion on dancers, models and clients to tell a deliberate story in each of her fine art series.
Eric Joseph (https://lacphoto.org/people/eric-joseph/) graduated from California State University, Northridge in 1985 with a BA degree in Art, Specializing in Photography. His advanced photography and primary mentoring instructor was Jerry McMillan an internationally respected photographer who was part of the ground breaking Photography into Sculpture exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1970. His career at Freestyle Photographic Supplies started in 1986 starting as sales person in the retail store working his way up to his current position as Senior Vice President of New Business and Product Development. As a respected industry insider Eric has established a solid reputation as a technical and creative resource in photographic processes, both darkroom and digital.
