Course Description:

This hands-on workshop will provide photographers with the tools to successfully begin the inkjet printing process, as well as offer tips/tricks for those interested in raising their practice to an advanced level. CPAC’s updated Digital Lab features two new Canon inkjet printers (PRO 1000 and PRO 2100) and instructions for how to use these machines will be reviewed in detail. Instructor Frank Varney will demonstrate printer settings for using Canon and Epson printers with Lightroom Classic and Photoshop software and Canon’s Professional Print & Layout software. Additional discussion will happen around which papers to select when considering aesthetics and exhibition quality prints. During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to make up to 3, 11″ x 17″ prints. Students will also learn basic options for setting up an at-home digital printing lab.
