Last night I attended the Vistek Fine Art Digital Printing with John Paul Caponigro at Ryerson University. John is a very successful visual artist exhibiting and teaching digital photography and digital printing workshops. This lecture was all about ink-jet printing with details on colour management and printer driver setup.
Since I don’t do my own printing and mostly just make photo books, the main thing I got out of this was that I have to learn a lot if I ever do get into printing, and maybe the right questions to ask.
The theatre was packed and it was interesting to see the people who would attend this type of thing. As I was giving my name at the sign-in desk, someone said “I know that voice anywhere. You must be Bernie’s brother!”. Ha! my brother works at Vistek, and this fellow looked familiar. I think I met him once at their office after one of our Mill Street lunches.
I don’t get downtown very often at night, so this was definitely a good excuse to get in some night street shooting.
Actually, that was more fun than the lecture. I also noticed there was lots of smooching going on for a Tuesday night in TO.
Ahhh, spring is in the air! Â ðŸ˜‰
