"Outputing From Photoshop and Lightroom"
by Cemal Ekin-RI
Monday, October 7, 7:30 PM

We start October with a superb digital-print teaching presentation. Our speaker for this opening program of the month comes to us from Rhode Island. Our presenter retired from Providence College in 2012 as Professor Emeritus. He states - Teaching has been a great experience for him, affecting his photography, and how he shares what he knows with others. That in turn has helped him to learn more about photography and the art of photography. He writes about photography to sharpen his understanding of it. Cemal has been involved in photography over 60 years, but digital photography has been a fertile ground for him since the early 1990s. He learned the tools of this new world, Photoshop and Lightroom and enjoys sharing what he knows in presentations, workshops, private mentoring and tutorials. He states- My photographs present my vision and I keep an open mind about making all necessary adjustments to my photographs to convey my vision. Despite that, I strive to produce work that is free from processing artifacts and look effortlessly done

Our speaker will teach you everything you need to know to create a printed output of your work. Whether on an inkjet printer, printed at a photo lab, or even photo books and magazines, this process needs to be very carefully controlled if consistent quality is desired; and who would not want that? This presentation will focus on the general workflow to directly output to a printer, prepare images for lab printing, or creating magazine format publications. Given the time limitations of the hour’s presentation, the emphasis will be on the disciplined workflow that the participants need to put to use in their own time, on their own equipment. Actual output examples will be provided and the process used to create them will be explained in a step by step process.

Cemal has had six solo exhibits in three cities, issued limited and open edited folios, and published photo books and magazines featuring his work. His prints can be found in public and private collections in the USA and abroad. The prestigious magazine, LensWork published more than 70 photographs from his –Infrared Earthscapes- series and he is included in the first edition of International Masters of Photography, which came out in 2012. The Festival Ballet of Providence, Rhode Island commissioned an original ballet inspired by and featuring a collection of his photographs of dried orchids. The ballet, Orchis, was performed in March 2012 in Providence. Please visit his website www.keptlight.com to view his work and learn more about our speaker.
