THE PERFECT PRINT METHOD and WHY THE PAPER MATTERS! with Eric Joseph
Monday, May 4th 2:45pm – 4:30pm
More photographs are being taken today over any period in our history, yet less images are being printed. Why? Image printing can be a scary and complicated topic for many, but understanding how to print perfectly, the first time and every time, can take your photography to a whole other level.
Eric Joseph, Master of the Perfect Print Guarantee, will show you what you need to know in order to successfully print on inkjet paper, and how the paper influences the image. Participants will see, touch and feel over 200 inkjet papers from 8 different manufacturers and gain keen insight into the technical aspects, myths, and mysteries of digital printing through both lecture and interactive participation. Using a simple 5-step method, you will learn how to turn ordinary images into extraordinary prints!
