Advanced Digital Printing Workshop with Richard Jackson

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of hosting our Advanced Digital Printing workshop with Richard Jackson!

During this intensive class, students identified their vision and intention of their images, then through deconstruction of the images,  translated from the computer screen to dimensional prints on paper.  Three days of editing and test prints to create a collection of final prints. 

Topics covered also included lighting, color space and gamut, rendering intention, paper selections, and working with commercial print labs. 

Take a peek behind the scenes of the workshop and watch as the class perfected their images in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, working to produce extraordinary prints and bring their creative visions to life on paper.

After Hours Member Mixer

Last night was a blast as we hosted our latest After Hours Member Mixer in our new digs at the Art Intersection Photo Arts Lab! It was such a joy to catch up with our community and chat about all the exciting changes happening at Art Intersection.

Alan gave us a sneak peek into the year ahead with a roadmap jam-packed with awesome events planned for both the Photo Arts Lab and Gallery 4.

And let’s not forget the highlight of the evening—Juan Garcia’s incredible digital prints, crafted from a 4×5 negative under Alan’s guidance, from scan to print. It was a taste of the creative magic we’re cooking up for future gatherings with artists in our Art Intersection community!

We’re excited to dive into this new chapter at Art Intersection. Keep an eye out for more information by signing up for our email newsletter here!

Dry Plate Demonstration

Art Intersection hosted a dry plate negative demonstration with Lisa Zirbel’s photography class. The dry plates came from Zebra in Slovenia. Bob Rice was in charge of the developing of the plates after each student exposed the negatives taking portraits using Calumet 4×5 cameras.

Gelatin silver contact sheets were made from each negative, with the take away for each students being a dry plate negative and a contact print. Fun afternoon!

You can learn more about Zebra on their website.

Bob Sadler and His Experience with Art and Artificial Intelligence

Bob Sadler presented his experimental work created using Artificial Intelligence during a Zoom call. After his presentation and demonstration, Bob let the callers describe an image. The description was roadrunner bird, at the Grand Canyon, with a rain storm.

Here’s what was created in about four minutes from start to finish.

From this introduction by Bob, I believe AI will find a place in art and photography, and will continue to expand it’s presence as the technology continues to develop.

Very cool and informative time with you, thank you Bob!
