Several participants asked for my notes from tonight's discussion on printing. Hope you find them useful. If you weren't able to attend, we came up with a LOT of really fun ideas. Next month I will be doing a workshop on portrait lighting. The following will be a "Shoot Off" ala Food Network's "Chopped" program. Stay tuned for details.
