Many thanks to Judy and Mark for an extremely informative and interesting talk last night. Their journey, illustrated with prints made in the darkroom days through to today’s digitally produced work was fascinating. In many ways the challenges are very similar often mirroring some of the pitfalls as well as triumphs of the past. We all came away with a better understanding of colour space, the pros and cons of different paper finishes such as gloss, semi-gloss, art papers, matt etc. and the dilemma of using external print options vs printing our own.
It was a very enjoyable evening and a good pre-cursor to next week’s workshop on how to prepare prints and projected images for competition.
