Great photographs aren’t truly finished until they’re printed. For generations of photographers, the final print has been the culmination of the creative process and the ultimate expression of the artist. And in our age of digital photography and imaging, everyone can make make prints of their photographs easily and inexpensively.
Unfortunately, many photographers don’t make prints of their photos because they lack knowledge or confidence. Have you resisted printing your work because you don’t know where to start, had prints made by a lab and been disappointed with inferior results, or tried doing it yourself only to find it a frustrating waste of time and money?
Join us for a special presentation by photographer, master printer and Adobe Certified Expert Nat Coalson, who will demystify the process of digital printing and give you the knowledge and confidence to print your work like a pro.

Nat will demonstrate the state-of-the-art in fine art inkjet printing systems with the brand new Epson Stylus Pro 4900, one of Epson’s latest generation of printers capable of incredible detail, accurate, vibrant color and gorgeous black and white prints, too. You will be introduced to Epson’s new Signature Worthy line of fine papers and will also see demonstrations of color management solutions from X-Rite, including the ColorMunki.
You’ll learn all about the modern digital printing workflow, including:
Correctly calibrating your display
Using ICC profiles
Choosing the best paper for each image
Printing from Lightroom and Photoshop
Making black-and-white prints from color originals
Preparing files for printing at a lab
Coating, laminating, handling and storing prints
… and more!

BOULDER, COLO. — APRIL 16, 2010 — A new series of intensive one-week certificate programs at Boulder Digital Arts is set to make the organization a national resource for digital professionals, students and other professionals looking to learn important new tools and techniques in web design, social media marketing, video production and other fields. The Transitions certificate program will debut June 7.
Boulder Digital Arts’ new Transitions certificate programs are taught by talented working professionals. The programs emphasize practical knowledge and skills over academics using a project-based learning approach that combines engaging lectures with hands-on practice. Every Transitions program has a clear, concise learning outcome for students. Most programs limit class size to eight students so the instructor can engage and help each student.
Offered in Boulder Digital Arts’ state-of-the-art classroom in the organization’s new 3,000-square-foot site at 1600 Range St., the Transitions classes deepen and expand the curriculum Boulder Digital Arts has offered over its six-year history. Transitions students will have access to cutting-edge software and tools, and receive personal mentoring from other digital professionals.
The first Transitions class, a one-week Digital Photography certificate program, runs Monday, June 7, to Friday, June 11. Other scheduled Transitions classes include:
The classes are geared toward out-of-town visitors as well as local professionals. Boulder Digital Arts has negotiated with local vendors to offer discounted accommodations and other services to Transitions participants. Classes will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and include a catered lunch. Students will also have access to personal mentoring from Boulder Digital Arts instructors from 6-9 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
“This new program is a huge leap forward for Boulder Digital Arts,” co-founder Bruce Borowsky said of the new space. “People who spend a week in the Transitions classroom with our top-notch mentors will leave Boulder Digital Arts with a new set of skills and a grasp of the most important technological trends of the day. We believe they’ll feel more vital and energized about how they incorporate technology into their careers, and people will come to Boulder from all over the country once they find out how exciting these programs are.”
Boulder Digital Arts co-founders Bruce Borowsky and Zach Daudert launched the organization in 2004 to offer low-cost, high-impact training in digital tools and new technology. Boulder is an important hub of the digital world, allowing Boulder Digital Arts to leverage top-notch instructors and provide education in cutting-edge subjects and ideas. Borowsky, a Boulder Chamber of Commerce board member, has been a producer at People Productions in Boulder for more than 10 years. During that time he has worked on a wide variety of projects for both corporate and commercial clientele, not only as producer and director but also as cameraman, lighting director and editor. Daudert is a technology strategist, Web developer and filmmaker. He started his career as a video editor in the mid 1990s and moved into Web and mobile development when it became too interesting to ignore and promised a seemingly unlimited source of curiosity and experiments in the early 2000s.
Located at 1600 Range St., Boulder Digital Arts is a one-stop community resource for digital artists, creative professionals and students in film/video, interactive media, photography, music and the Web. Boulder Digital Arts offers a range of resources that embrace contemporary technology, particularly where it intersects with creative expression, including affordable training, a free online directory, Digital Salon series, free networking and special events and discounted access to tools and technology. The organization’s trainers are professionals and educators who bring a wealth of experience and know how to each training program.
I’m partnering with Professional Photographers of Colorado to present a full day class detailing all the essential aspects of the modern photography workflow.
We’ll cover everything from editing shoots in Lightroom to advanced image processing with Photoshop. We’ll also talk a lot about using metadata and other best-practices for pro or aspiring photographers.
The class is in downtown Denver, all day Sunday Feb 21. PPC is offering special pricing for the event. For more info and registration click here.
Last night I made a Lightroom presentation to one of the more established photo clubs in the Denver area. It was a blast! Great turnout, lots of good questions and interaction and we all had a good time exploring the advantages of Lightroom in a digital photography workflow.
I brought all the remaining copies of my book that I had; unfortunately several people didn’t get one… I ran out. (You can get them on Amazon.com)
Dick York founded Denver Digital Photo Club 6 years ago – a long time in terms of digital photography – and of clubs. They’ve been holding a monthly meeting every month all these years, and it showed… lots’ of camaraderie.
My thanks to Dick and the club members for a warm welcome and a nice evening. Cheers!
