Workshop – Part of Exposure Weekend 2019

This seminar is guaranteed to contribute to your success as a digital printmaker! The class is lead by industry expert Eric Joseph, Senior Vice President of Freestyle Photographic Supplies and Cheryl Walsh, Award-Winning fine art underwater photographer.

Eric will unveil the myths and mysteries of inkjet paper, color management, and digital inkjet printing – using Canon imagePROGRAF printers. This is not just a technical class touching on dry topics and marketing speak. It is an in-depth personal education on those issues. One that can only be shared in a classroom environment, from someone who has devoted their life and professional career to improving those around him. The class is tailored to YOU and your needs.

This full-day intensive workshop will be centered around helping you control the digital printing process and make the right decisions for you as an artist, with topics including:

1.  Inkjet paper and how to choose a paper that is right for you.
2.  Color Management, simply explained and demonstrated to allow you to achieve reliable, consistent, controllable and repeatable results.
3.  File preparation using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and full demonstration of printing on a Canon imagePrograf PRO-2000 wide format printer, using Canon Print Studio Pro printing software.

Attendees will need to bring a few images (not 100 or 1000) on a thumb drive or flash drive sized to at least 11×17 at 300 ppi and formatted as TIF or JPG.  Each participant will leave with two 11×17 prints of the same image on two different papers.

Cheryl Walsh
In an overwhelmingly chaotic world, Southern California based underwater fine art portrait artist Cheryl Walsh 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.

Cheryl maintains full control over all her fine art prints by printing them herself on her Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 on fine art papers in sizes up to 40×60 inch.
