Author Andrew Darlow, a veteran photographer, educator, and digital imaging consultant, collected his years of experience with digital and fine art photography and inkjet printing to write the book. “After using a variety of inkjet printers for more than ten years, I’m very happy to be able to share many of the tips and techniques I’ve been using to make exhibition, portfolio, and personal prints with others who share my passion for photography.”
With a foreword by legendary photographer Douglas Kirkland, the newest addition to the successful Digital Print and Process Series from Course Technology PTR introduces readers to the latest digital output techniques. “Photographers of all levels can benefit from the tips including: how to choose a printer; how to sharpen properly; how to choose the right file size and resolution when making prints; how to save ink; how to produce impressive portfolios within virtually any budget; Photoshop tips and tricks; and much more,” says Darlow.
Continues the author, “The book also contains over 100 reproductions of photographs and other artwork, with technical info such as the camera, lens, f-stop, and exposure. In addition, paper and ink combinations are listed throughout the book. I believe that this will help people of all skill levels to better understand which printers and papers work well together based on actual testing.”
“I’m also extremely pleased with the guest artist selection, which makes up about half of the book and includes the tips and techniques of more than 20 photographers and other artists. I’ve known many of the guest artists for years and feel very fortunate to share the book’s pages with them.”
