The 2019 Fine art Summit: Lightroom To Print

Learn how to post-process your nature and landscape images for fine art printing in the beautiful setting of Death Valley, California.

The Summit is a three-day class taught by Alain Briot, Jeff Schewe and Natalie Briot in the private and comfortable Oasis Conference Room inside The Inn at Death Valley.

The Summit covers:

• Lightroom Develop Module from start to finish, including the use of Graduated filters, Radial Filters and local Adjustment Brushes and finally sizing and sharpening for print.

• Photoshop for layering, selective color, warping, reformatting and all the other things you cannot do in Lightroom.

Printing: the Summit is a comprehensive course in preparing your photographs for printing. Everyone will be making 13×19 prints during the Summit using a dedicated Epson Printer, ink and paper. Ink and paper are provided free as part of your summit registration.

• Free raffle: at the end of the Summit we raffle the Printer we use during the Summit so one lucky participant will take it back with them for free!  We will also raffle a number of other gifts including paper, ink, books and many surprise gifts so that everyone has a chance to win during the raffle.

Field photography: sunrise and sunset shoots are planned everyday. Plus we have a day of photography planned during the Summit so that you can explore remote areas of Death Valley.

The Summit is a fantastic opportunity to learn fine art printing with two experts in the field and take your photography to the next level !

• Lodging: we have blocks of rooms reserved at the hotel close to the conference room and close to the locations during the field workshop.
