Printing and Colour Management Masterclass 11/09/17
As photographers the image is everything. We invest hugely, in time, money and effort to make the very best photographs we can. But all art needs an artefact. Something tangible, something physical to complete the creative process. There is nothing like crafting a beautiful print of our most treasured images to complete the creative circle. How much more satisfying is it to hold in our hands a physical print than to simply see pixels on a screen.
However, printing is a craft, just as creating the image in the field is a craft. So often the results from our printer can disappoint, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Colour management, proofing, paper choice and printing may seem daunting, but it can all be learned. The whole process is very physical and immensely satisfying.
We have established the Fotospeed Academy to open up the world of fine art printing to you. Through our Masterclasses we aim to show you how to make fine, exhibition quality prints from your images. We want to show you that it doesn’t have to be difficult. We want to strip away much of the mystery and ‘dark arts’ that some people would like to shroud printing in so that you feel equipped to go away and start making beautiful prints at home.
