Workshop Overview
‘Digital Printing Masterclass’ is a hands-on printing workshop that reveals how to get the very best results in digital printing using the latest pigment ink jet or photographic (C Type) printing technology.

The workshop leader Tim Handfield and the workshop participants will review a selection of images and jointly make decisions about how they are to be printed. Tim will demonstrate how those aesthetic decisions can be carried out using RAW processing software and advanced Photoshop techniques.

Through the day the selected images will progress from: on screen representation, to print tests and through to finished exhibition prints. All steps will be demonstrated, explained and discussed with the workshop participants. Participants will then have the opportunity to view and critique the finished prints, and discuss how they might apply the day’s insights in their own work.

Who Should Attend?
'Digital Printing Masterclass' is equally relevant for photographers who produce their own prints, or those who prefer to work with technical professionals, such as the Colour Factory staff, to produce prints for them. The content of the workshop is as much about the conceptual and aesthetic aspects of digital printing as it is about the technical.

  2. Hey Postcard Printing. While your post looks a bit spam-like I thought I'd respond anyway! Thanks for your feedback - this event was in 2010 and booked out well in advance, Tim Handfield is a respected printer and photographer and his workshops come highly recommended for the photographer who is serious about reproducing their images as accurately as possible. MGA also runs other workshops on different topics across a range of prices so I hope to see you around MGA soon!
