Digital Printing 101
January 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until February 12, 2019
Printing high-quality digital images on technical printers requires a unique skill set. In this introduction to the “digital darkroom,” we’ll learn about the variables an artist can manipulate to get the results their looking for: printer calibration, color saturation & hue, setting the printer to insure consistent output, image sizing, and paper selection – to name a few. We’ll learn the basics of printing professional quality images in this 6-day class. Students must have some basic proficiency with image & file manipulation and a laptop computer installed with Photoshop or Adobe Elements. Please enter through 5th Street door.
Dates: January 8, 15, 22, 29, February 5 & 12 from 6:00 – 8:30 pm
Teaching Artist: Steve Antell
Cost: $120 Member / $140 Non-member
Teaching Artist Bio: Steve’s passion is to create pictures using photography emanating from his outdoor experiences. He began taking images as a 12 year old while camping, hiking and canoeing in remote areas. Soon thereafter he built a darkroom and started a lifelong apprenticeship for making his own prints. Over the next two decades Steve finished college and graduate schools in biology, while photographing, climbing, guiding and teaching in the American West. Moving to Oregon, he operated his own portraiture and commercial studio for sixteen years, refining proficiency in design, illustration and printing. Since then Steve has returned to exclusively making his own work, often characterized by compressed detailed compositions. His current prints utilize digital pigmented ink, frequently have overlays of pencil, charcoal, acrylic or pastel and are owned by university, commercial and private entities. He resides in La Grande, rural Eastern Oregon with his wife Karen.
