Check out a small snippet of the piece I’ve been working on for the past few months with writer Jeff Parker. Click on the link to view the online version of the story published in this month’s Sarasota Magazine:

A class I’ve been enhancing since I introduced it 3 years ago, while the course is a photography course, techniques covered are applicable to any artist utilizing the Adobe Creative Suite who desires to understand color management and precision in the output of their digital workflow in order that their work will be ready for art world consumption.
Aqueous Inkjet, Solvent Inkjet, Digital C-Prints, Digital Press, and so much more…
Large and Medium Format Film and Digital Photography, New Media, Graphic Design, and Prepress, it’s a one-stop shop.
See you in the Fall!
With the spring semester rolling I am posting the Top Ten images from my Fall 2012 AVT 354 Digital Photo Techniques class. Students used both digital and film input to produce images through a hybrid digital workflow.

Printing at Walmart?
Today I spent the day editing images from my previous stay at the Hermitage. Before returning to North Port, FL to continue the project I began this past summer, I wanted to assess the project’s accomplishments, needs, et cetera. I quickly ran into a problem. I don’t have access to a photo printer at the residency.
In comes Walmart and their Fuji Frontier. Walmart offers two options: printing instantly on an HP or printing on a Fuji Frontier and waiting a few minutes. I did tests on both. The HP produced garbage, which is not a surprise (I wrote a scathing review of the HP z3100 on my previous blog back in 2007). The Fuji produced well beyond my expectations. The color on the Fuji is near perfect, even without a printer profile.
All in all, if you don’t have a portable printing rig while on location and need some proof prints, go to Walmart and use a Fuji Frontier.
*Note: I could not figure out how to print without a crop on Walmart’s Fuji Frontier interface. Be careful with your aspect ratios.*
