LADIG is happy to announce a special presentation by Eric Joseph at Freestyle Photographic Supplies in Hollywood, a survey of the range of fine photographic papers available for digital inkjet printing.
Eric will showcase over 100 photographs while discussing the technical points and aesthetic differences of inkjet papers from the following brands: Arista, Awagami, Canson, Hahnemuhle, Ilford, Moab and Museo. Participants will gain keen insight into the technical aspects, myths and mysteries of digital printing through both lecture and interactive participation.
The focus of this seminar is to get participants to understand how important The Print really is and to realize that we truly can have a personal bond and relationship with inkjet papers the same way we had with traditional darkroom papers.
Eric Joseph has been a member of Freestyle Photographic Supplies for the past 25 years after receiving his BA in Photography from Cal State Northridge. He works with all the manufacturers of photo paper – both analog and digital – and has a unique perspective on the state of the art of photographic paper.
This is a one-of-a-kind seminar and applies to photographers, printmakers, graphic designers and artists of all levels!
The event is free, but sign up here so we know how many people to expect.
LADIG welcomes back Eric Curry to our April 3 meeting at West Hollywood Park Hall. Eric going to present his series of photographs of American Pride and Passion.
Eric literally paints with light to create his photographs. He says, “I am basically taking 25 years of technical special effects photographic knowledge and applying it to objects that we all take for granted in our daily lives. Not shooting images of new “toys” per se, but rather whole scenes of regular objects in their environment. Truly believing that beauty is all around us, we just have to look with a slightly different pair of colored glasses to see it. I’m hoping that the huge amount of energy I pour in to each and every work will help illuminate the inherent beauty in these otherwise average scenes.
With over slides and dozens of anecdotal stories woven into a presentation, this is a wild ride of cutting edge photography, along with a true glimpse at the nobility of character embodied by the volunteers in these images.”
This month LADIG also introduces a new Lightroom: Before & After feature. Daniel Sofer and Lee Varis share a photograph and show how they created it in Adobe Lightroom (and sometimes Photoshop), so you can learn more from the official Los Angeles Adobe Lightroom User Group.
Greg Dyro will also show his latest Wacky Hacks.
Our April event will be held at the West Hollywood Park Auditorium. Doors open at 6pm for some finger food and conversation, then we’ll get rolling around 7pm.
