I have had some spots open up in this upcoming workshop in Seattle — I hope you can join us.
Printing with Lightroom
In this one day workshop learn how to achieve high-quality color and black and white prints with Lightroom 2. We start with color management — learn why and how to calibrate your monitor, what color spaces and gamut mean, and what printer profiles are and how you find and use them. We discuss printer and paper options, and then we move on to the Lightroom Print module, where you learn how to lay out and print individual images, contact sheets and picture packages. We discuss contrast and sharpening, so that your prints have the impact you intend. Finally, we cover how to use templates to make your printing incredibly quick and consistent. Practice printing with the the state-of-the-art Epson 3880 printer. Prerequisite: Lightroom Fundamentals or equivalent. It is assumed that you know how to import your images and use the Develop module to optimize them. Laptop with Lightroom 2.6 required. Limited to 6 students. $165. 9 am – 5 pm, Studio R in the Fremont district of Seattle. See www.laurashoe.com/workshops.htm for more details.
