So I have an artist’s statement and a whole bunch of raw images, how do you turn that into a print ready portfolio? Because it’s not really art if it only exists on my computer. Fortunately, Jane had persuaded me to join her for a fine art photo printing class up in Two Harbors.
She’s taken the class a number of times before and has known the instructor for over 20 years. Like most photography classes, the biggest value is that it forces you to work on images. But unlike my abstract class, this one also taught me a number of very useful tricks. The main goal was to learn how to turn an image on the screen into something that printed well and to leave with two large (17×22) prints.
This is another one of my favorite images from the portfolio and I chose it for one of the large prints.
