Epson are reintroducing their print academy with a series of brand new training classes that will be held at Epson’s headquarters in Hemel Hempstead.
Starting this April, four Epson Print Academy classes, in association with aspect2i, will be held with the potential for additional classes to run at the Epson cartridge manufacturing factory in Telford.
The classes on offer are:
The Perfect Black and White Print
Join Paul Gallagher as he gives you the knowledge you need to obtain excellent black and white prints from your Epson printer. Paul will cover topics such as scanning black and white negatives, the simple controls in Photoshop for black and white, and mastering the Epson Advanced Black and White print driver.
Making Perfect Exhibition Prints
Mike McNamee brings his expert experience in colour reproduction to this session which will explain, in detail, the steps and tricks to be utilised for exhibition-standard print creation from your Epson printer.
Confidence with Colour
Unleash your creativity no matter what type of photography you enjoy under the guidance of course leader Jonathan Briggs. The class will explore colour perception, working with rendering intents, the use of ICC output profiles to print and best practice on camera with the final print in mind.
Fine Art photography
This class explores the meaning of art photography, capturing the perfect image, understanding and using light and colour as well as depth of field, and approaches to composition. From taking the photograph through to printing it, the class will also cover key techniques for Photoshop manipulation, media choice for printing, and a look into the current offering of borders, a review of mounts and frames, led by seasoned experts John Humphrey and Sue Bishop.
Priced at £65.00, classes can be booked now through aspect2i's website
. It is assumed that class attendees will have a basic understanding of Photoshop and camera usage.
