Lecture Meeting

Andrew will present his talk entitled How to Get Great Prints from Your Photos: Online or from a Lab. 
Have you ever visited a photo exhibit and wondered, “What process did they use to achieve that look and feel?” Today’s print technologies make it easy and affordable to find outside photo labs and print service bureaus. In this workshop, award-winning photographer and consultant Andrew Darlow will reveal many printing processes and provide step-by-step advice to help you turn your photos into printed works of art. Each attendee will receive a printed handout and a test print to help you match your computer screen or tablet to your prints. What will be covered:

An overview of some different print processes, including samples of canvas, paper, wood, satin, and metal print options;

How to find the right companies to print your work (each participant will receive a list of hand-picked suppliers that Andrew uses or highly recommends);

How to quickly and easily see if your monitor or tablet is the right brightness and color;

How to inexpensively test any print process;

Hanging and display options for different print processes;

How to protect your work for shipping or transportation.
