Mentor Program

24th October 2016 | Courses

Macquarie Editions strives for the highest quality prints from your images, not just as faithful representations on paper but as objects of enduring beauty. Using the finest printers and papers is part of this. Essential though is receiving the highest quality files from your images to work with.

The Mentor Program takes the form of informal individual or small group consultation/discussion aimed at improving (or at least you better understanding) the tools and workflow you use. Areas include camera settings, monitor choice/setup/evaluation, software, scanning, colour spaces, lens correction, sharpening and noise reduction, file formats … anything that can have an influence on the final file quality. Learn the benefits of an L* workflow. The information imparted is generally not something you’ll find in books and may even contradict what you’ve been told elsewhere! (To be clear: the scope of this program isn’t printing per se, it’s about everything up to the point you hit Upload to submit your files for printing.)

This isn’t a course in creative photography or seeing in B&W, but concentrates instead on the craft of realising your intentions in print at the highest level, for personal or exhibition purposes.
