If you’re having trouble getting consistent colour from camera to monitor to print, Chromalink’s Get Colour Smart Workshop will work for you. For many photographers - whether professional or amateur - maintaining the consistency of digital colours is complicated. This all-day session provides you a hands-on way to learn how to control what you see on your monitor and get as a print.

The workshop provides ample time to discuss all information and helpful answers regarding colour models (RGB, CMYK), colour calibration, Photoshop colour management settings, and all those frustrations – from shadows and tonal ranges to black and white conversions – common to many photographers.

The “Need To Know” morning sessions provides lots of tips and tricks for properly calibrating your monitor and printing perfect prints. The full afternoon session called “Practice, Print and Perfect” allows each student to individually practice these Photoshop and Colour Management techniques working on their own individual monitor.

Beau Photo is pleased to sponsor this informative and results-oriented workshop hosted at the Vancouver Film School. All Beau Photo account members receive a 25% discount for the workshop..
