Check out recent work from Foothill College Students enrolled in my digital black and white printing workshop this summer!

Workshop topics included: best practices for black and white image conversion, tone control with levels and curves, dodging and burning, layer masking, sharpening, traditional and new looks, tone and beauty and using the advance black and white print driver controls for Epson printers including the 2400, 3800 and 4800 series.

Scott Olsen says about his portrait “I tried to maintain a full range of tonal values within the print. Some skin softening, dodging and burning was done using Lightroom. I adjusted the b&w conversion sliders until I was close to the image I wanted and worked from there. I really like portraits with a shallow depth of field as it keeps the focus on the eyes.”
