FINE TUNING THE EXPRESSIVE PRINT
JOHN SEXTON AND ANNE LARSEN
MARCH 31–April 5, 2020
The Fine Tuning the Expressive Print Workshop will NOT be offered in 2021
A continuation and expansion of John’s printing workshops, this outstanding workshop is being offered for the 32nd time! This workshop is open only to those who have previously attended one of John’s printing workshops listed in the margin. To receive optimum benefit from this workshop it is important that at least one year of active photography has taken place since attending the prerequisite workshop.
Following a brief review of topics and techniques covered in the prerequisite workshop, John will discuss and demonstrate additional advanced printmaking techniques, including: the effects of various developer formulas; simplified procedures that will demystify unsharp masking of negatives for local contrast and sharpness control; masked flashing for easier printing of difficult negatives; post processing negative enhancements; dye manipulation of negatives; handling problem negatives; along with many other printing and processing refinements.
Each participant will have the unique opportunity to print from one of John’s negatives prior to the workshop as part of an exercise exploring the creative process of expressive printmaking. In addition, participants will need to bring work completed since their participation in the prerequisite workshop to share during the portfolio review sessions. The field session, as well as discussion sessions, will explore problems and questions encountered since the last workshop. All classroom and demonstration sessions will be held in John’s darkroom and studio in Carmel Valley, California.
The workshop will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening, and will end about 1:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. The workshop fee will include daily refreshment breaks and three meals. Talented
photographer Anne Larsen will serve as the co-instructor on this workshop. The workshop is
limited to nine participants, and early enrollment is advised to avoid disappointment.
Fee: $1,600 (Includes all park entrance and permit fees)
