- Get to know an inspirational photographer: This month Scott introduces you to the American documentary photographer Dorothea Lange (1895 – 1965). She is best known for her documentary photography during the great depression (1929-1939). Her most famous image “Migrant Mother” (1936) is one of the most exhibited images in history. Dorothea’s work had a great impact on modern documentary photography. Her images gave the poor and forgotten a face and her work for the FSA from 1935-1939 is iconic for that time.
- Scott and Marco share their thoughts on why printing your image is so important – especially in today’s digital world.
- Marco interviews Travis Mc Connaghy from the US office of the oldest German paper manufacturer Hahnemuehle (founded in 1584)
- In the interview, we cover printers, ink, paper, calibration, software settings and icc profiles. And all of this is today a lot less complicated than many may think!
- Good paper manufacturers like Hahnemuehle supply icc profiles and instructions on how to get the best results with their paper and your pro-grade ink jet printer.
- After the interview Scott and Marco share more thoughts on their experiences with printing and strongly urge you, the audience to take action and print more of your work. It may be a life changing experience for your photography.
- Marco’s photo book of the month pick is: Fine Art Printing For Photographers by Uwe Steinmueller. This book is great for anyone who wants to find a consistent printing workflow.
