  • Slide 1
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I. Print Making Phase Costco Recommended
  • Slide 2
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Final Production: Phase-1 parts This phase is about finalizing the image with required lab work from steps 1 to 4. Step 1 cropFrame for final-shape usually limited to removing the 10% safeImage margin. Step 2 process using the 3 basic nondestructive filter-affect adjustments. Step 3 Retouch from simple spotting to area dodge (lightening) or burn (darkening). Step 4 Mask-retouching which often involves painting directly on the mask to remove the filter-adjustment affect.
  • Slide 3
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Final Production: Phase-1 goal The goal of the lab work is to bring out the image potential that was suggested in the original scene. Or in bringing out the storytelling elements that you carefully packed into your image. Be sure to Duplicate your image before moving to the lab work phase.
  • Slide 4
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : Final Production: Phase-2 1.Have the 1-Lab make exposure (brightness) adjustment on the machine to make light, normal, and dark 4x6 color prints. 2.Advanced: You provide a light, normal, and dark prints. Have the lab make the standard 3 print variations from your advanced starting point. For the Advanced to work properly, the normal image must be both darkened and lightened creating 3 image files. And the 3 files must be named properly with the exact file name appearing on the image.
  • Slide 5
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: One-Hour Lab: My recommended print source is Costcos One- Hour lab (Membership required). Its $1.49 (cheap) for an 8x10 lustre (semi-gloss) color prints. And its one-hour fast. Other Labs can charge between $3 to $8. And they may not even have the semi-gloss print surface nor do it in 1-hour. Doing it yourself will end up being much more costly, not standardized, and very time consuming. Standardized mean that I can have the print made at a Costco here or in Minnesota with the same result
  • Slide 6
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Costco Kiosk: Process Digital image processing is mostly a do-it-yourself Kiosk process. Start the process by inserting your memory card or a USB thumb drive into the Kiosk. Then use the Touch Screen as shown.
  • Slide 7
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Make the Right Choices: The system will ask you if you have any other media, answer No. Notice the Back and Continue buttons at the bottom of the screen.

  • Slide 10
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : This step for Lab-1 has been changed to selecting the 4x6 print. In Lab-2, choose the Enlargement..
  • Slide 11
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : Print Size: Lab 2 and beyond For the Lab 2, choose the 12x12 print size in order to maximize the final print size for $2.99. Choose the 8x12 for a much smaller print at $1.49. Consider moving to the larger 11 x14 for the Lab 3 phase. DSLR SizeCompact SizeOptional
  • Slide 12
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Size and Ratio: 1.12 x12 print size with the compact digital 4:3 shape centered vertically showing extra white paper on top and bottom. 2.8x12 print size is the same shape as the 2:3 (DSLR native) image shape. Math equations shown to the right. 4 x 2 = 8 4 x 3 = 12
  • Slide 13
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Shape and Shape Distortion: Image shape and framing concerns flow through the entire image creation process from shooting to final output. Maintaining shape (proportion) is also critical to the image creation process. The example 2 and 3 are warped
  • Slide 14
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Back to: Kiosk Choose Lustre
  • Slide 15
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : Costco Kiosk: Next Choose Borderless.
  • Slide 16
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Almost Finished: Choose Color
  • Slide 17
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase: Almost Choose your Final Project image and, when finished, press on Continue/Edit.
  • Slide 18
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : Finally: Check the total to make sure your order looks proper. The 12x12 costs $3.99 per print but the visual impact increase is worth a whole lot more...
  • Slide 19
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : Print: Final reminders 1.Dont make the print on a glossy photo paper. The reflections from the mirror like surface will make it hard to see the image. And its prone to finger prints and other kinds of marks that can be nearly impossible to remove. 2.Without prior knowledge or experience, making your own print can be very time consuming, more expensive, and not standardized. 3.Prints with Borders works the best when put into a picture frame that eats-up the edge of the image.
  • Slide 20
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : More About Shapes: Shape is similar to ratio and proportion. They are sometimes used interchangeably. The compact digital 4:3 ratio is the same as the traditional CRT shape. They share the same 4:3 proportion. Many new LCD monitors no longer share the same shape. They are usually much wider.
  • Slide 21
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Print Making Phase : Traditional Print Sizes: The compact digital shape doesnt match any of the traditional image sizes. And even the traditional sizes never matched each other. Labs now have print sizes to match the compact digital and the wider shape DSLR images.
  • Slide 22
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Mount print for showcasing Instructions: 1.Print - make it as per this PowerPoint show. 2.Mount board - 22 x 28 black foam board with a thickness of 3/16. 3.Title card supply the title, your name, and possible very brief story in a Word document. Or create a full color print as shown... Bring the print, title card, and the foam board to the last class.
  • Slide 23
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Final Phase: I will take care of the final phase Mounting: Spacing rules Its about making the negative space (black area) look balanced. Basic rule: Largest space Bottom Smaller space Top Smaller space Sides Smallest space Middle Optional Spacing: Largest spaceBottom Smaller space Top & sides Smallest spaceMiddle
  • Slide 24
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Final Phase Special Permission Request: I would like to borrow the mounted ready to show final project for two quarters. It will get displayed in the NSCC Library and possibly in the Spring Student Art Show. It may even get shown to students at SSCC. Lastly, Sharon Simes (Library Director) came up with the idea to put student images into a book. sometime in the near future.
  • Slide 25
  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Final Phase Presentation: Presentation is about communication. Its vital to make it relaxed and conversational. 1.State your full name while making eye contact with everyone in the room. Try something like Good evening, my name is. Be a host. 2.Simply state the title of your image. The title of my work is ... 3.Flesh out your title with a simple and short story. Let your image tell the story. And let the audience ask questions that you can respond to flesh out things that are of interest to the audience 4.Give a clear indication that you are finished by asking for questions or comments.
