This indoor class on location at HD Aluminum Prints will focus on all aspects to produce a fantastic print, including taking home a 20x30 aluminum print of your own work.

Printing can be challenging, confusing, and intimidating and good printing information can be hard to find. In this workshop we will demonstrate and share the most important elements of printing without getting bogged down in overly technical details. We will demonstrate and guide you through the entire printing workflow, ending with a finished aluminum print. In addition to presentations, we will be leading hands on classroom sessions, guiding you through the process of preparing and optimizing an image to be printed on aluminum.

This course is for anyone who would like to learn techniques for producing better prints. Zack and Adrian have 30 years of combined printing experience. Our goal is to show what is fundamental and essential in our work and help photographers make prints that match their vision more consistently. The printing techniques are the ones we use ourselves. We have worked hard to break down the steps, give clear examples and cover the most important aspects of printing.
