Had a great time last weekend hosting a Pixels to Pigment Workshop with Tokyo photographer Martin Bailey. The workshop taught photographers how to create a more effective workflow from image capture to print.

This meant calibrating the camera to give the correct colors and white balance, both done using an X-Rite color checker passport.

Monitors, the projector, both printers and two kinds of paper were calibrated using the X-Rite color munki and the i1Publish Pro 2.

Prints were made of both Martin’s and the participants images, and on the second day the prints were laminated and then made into gallery wraps.

Martin hands over the final print to workshop participant David Edenfield.

I’d like to thank Shawn, Michael, David, Justin and David, for coming on the workshop and making it such a fun and successful weekend. A huge thanks to Martin for flying down to Okinawa and sharing his knowledge with us.  For details on future Pixels to Pigment workshops in other parts of the world please check out Martin’s website.
