Tynemouth's HOLIDAY COMPETITION
Peter Dixon is coming to do a talk on how he sets up for printing. He has sent the following notes.
I think anyone who comes from a darkroom background has a distinct advantage over those without when it comes to assessing black and white images for printing.
My aim with this talk/demo is to try to demonstrate how to very simply attain quality images.
Anyone who is not processing their images like or similar to my method is almost certainly not getting the best out of their files, which I will demonstrate.
I'm certainly not saying that my way is the only way, I couldn’t be that conceited.
The method I use is equally as good for colour with a few slight differences in the approach.
I will bring many examples of before and afters and my old processing method via the new way, I'm amazed at how much better they are with the latest method of development.
An evening with Paul Nelson, publisher of cards etc.
