Have you ever visited a nursery or greenhouse, and thought about how great it would be to capture the beauty, color, line and form of an orchid, or unusual succulent that inspires you and preserve it in a photograph? Access can be hard, and using a tripod can be impossible and not allowed. Perhaps you hesitated because you felt the need for instructional help with the technical, aesthetic and compositional framework to make it happen.

PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo: FC1-The Craft and Passion of Fine-Art Digital Printing

Making a photographic print was always a challenging process. It could involve days in the darkroom, and deep consideration of the results and possibilities. The time, craft and care needed to make a fine print in this digital age is not dissimilar. The processes are very different, the editing is super-critical, and the confusing connections between software and printer challenging. But the attention to craft and the need for passionate concentration on the potential beauty of the photographic print remain. This seminar focuses exclusively on the craft of fine-art digital printing, and consequently will deal with image editing, color management, print evaluation and the hard work necessary to make beautiful prints.
