Zoom Workshop: Lightroom Print Module with David Robertson

 Registration is closed for this event
Registration Note: For organizational purposes, please sign up for all Zoom workshops 24 hours in advance of the start date/time. If you sign up at a later time, you may not receive the hand-outs and Zoom link in a timely manner. Thank you for your support! By the end of the Print module workshop, you should be comfortable printing your own images and understanding why certain choices need to be made to have the image on your monitor match the print.

The workshop will be devoted to discussing what is required to create a fine art print. This discussion is divided between the technical (color management) and the aesthetic (artistic) components.

There will be a discussion of color spaces (sRGB/Adobe RGB/ProPhoto RGB), rendering intents (Relative Colorimetric/Perceptual), and profiling (monitor/printer).

By having a basic understanding of these issues, you will be better able to make printing decisions or recognize problems on your own.

This workshop will also include instruction for soft proofing in Lightroom, input/output/creative sharpening, and localized contrast adjustments.

Information will also be provided on paper choice (matte vs. glossy, warm vs. cold, optical brightening agents).


There will be two 10-minute breaks. 

Hand-outs will be provided, please be prepared to take notes.

Have the latest version of Lightroom loaded and ready to go on your computer. If you are using an older version, some items may not be available i.e., texture, dehaze, etc.

BIO: David Robertson has been interested in photography since college, where he learned how to develop his own negatives and to print black and white images. His photographs tend to reflect strong graphical elements and simplicity; regardless of subject matter. They have been described by NYC photographer and friend—Jay Maisel—as reflecting solitude, without loneliness. 

He has previously taught more than a dozen workshops on Lightroom, Photoshop, printing and B&W conversion at Viewpoint and at various photography groups in the Sacramento region. He has been a Lightroom instructor for the Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures in New Mexico, Maine, California and Colorado.  David has also had several solo and group exhibits including a solo exhibit at the Pence Gallery in Davis (January 2008), a group exhibit at Viewpoint (May 2009), and a two-person exhibit in Roseville (May 2010), a two-person exhibit at the Grants Pass Museum of Art in Oregon (October 2011), and a group exhibit in Berlin, Germany (October 2015).  You can learn more about him, and see additional photographs, at his website: dlrobertsonphotography.com.
