Event Description

ASMP New England partners with longtime sponsor Bob Korn Imaging to bring you a Printing Workshop.

“A photograph isn’t a photograph until it’s a print”

Printing used to be left to the professionals at the lab, but now with digital, many try to print  themselves finding that the options and technical requirements can be daunting.  How do you profile and calibrate your printer and your monitor?  What’s the difference between pigment and dye based inks?  How to choose a paper or even a printer that compliments your photography?  What’s the proper color space to shoot in and then what’s the proper color space to print with?  What are the best practices when it comes to scanning film to be printed digitally?  What’s a print workflow?  How do you price and present your prints for sale as fine art?  No wonder it’s tempting to just let your images stay on hard drives and behind screens.

Bob Korn can guide you through these questions and others you have.  He’s run Bob Korn Imaging for nearly forty years and worked with Joel Meyerowitz, Gregory Heisler, and Richard Avedon among others.  He will lead a printing workshop in the day.  He will print a file from the first five registrants to demonstrate his printing methods while addressing audience questions.  All along, he’ll stress the things he wished photographers did which would make their work stand out (and produce the best prints).  We will complete the workshop by looking at the show on the wall and discussing the finer points Bob considered of certain images while making the prints.  You do not have to be an ASMP member to participate in the workshop.

Coffee and light snacks will be available before and during the printing workshop.  After the Printing Workshop is complete, we’ll have a short break for folks to grab a late lunch (Bob suggests the nearby Cornerstore, Sunbird, and Land Ho).  We encourage you to return to Bob’s gallery for the opening of ASMPNE Member Show.

Throughout Printing Workshop and the beginning of the ASMPNE Member Show, we’ll be raffling off one of Bob’s own prints ($130 value – 20×30 image on 24×34 paper)  and one $150 gift certificate from Maryelle Artistry on a full 8 hour day of make up services which is normally $800.  We’ll auction off a Workbook Online Portfolio valued at $2000 and a Think Tank bag.
