Photoshop for the Analog Photographer

August 18 2019 - August 24 2019

Maine Media Workshops, Camden Street, Rockport, ME, USA


For those who still love and embrace analog photography, converting your analog negatives to a digital file has become an increasingly popular workflow. But how to get the best possible print out of an analog negative, from 35mm to 8”x10”, can still be quite frustrating. Scanning negatives the right way, allows you move to a digital workflow and have complete control over your image using the full range of tools available in Photoshop. All of this to get reliably beautiful color or black and white prints from digital inkjet technology.

This class will begin with the how-to’s and best practices of scanning negatives, including wet scanning of large format negatives on a flatbed scanner. Students should bring in plenty of negatives that they’d like to process during the workshop. After scanning in their negatives, students will discover the best work flow from analog to digital, using Lightroom, as well as techniques for problem-solving in Photoshop. We will also demystify color correction. Taught by a veteran traditional printer in color and B/W who turned to digital printing, this class presents the material in a step-by-step way in a friendly atmosphere.

Throughout Greg Miller’s 30 year career, he has printed his own silver and traditional color prints for magazines, galleries and museum exhibitions. In the last 10 years, still working in 8×10 color film, Miller has embraced an analog to digital workflow printing large scale pigment ink prints.
