We hope you will join us on Tuesday, May 23rd, as we welcome Pete Wright as our program speaker with his program Photograph! Process! Print! The Fundamental Skills of a True Artist.
In this full circle program, Pete will take you through the studio lighting and posing techniques to use to create visually stunning portraits. Then he will take you into post processing and retouching your images to assure you the best possible product for your clients. To complete the circle, Pete will simplify the printing process and give you the steps you need to be able to finish your own art. This course will give you a better understanding of the tools necessary in each of the stages to get the best results from your work.
BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE!
Jacksonville Canon reseller Dorado Graphix will be coming with Pete and bringing Canon’s Large Format printers to print free sample wall portraits for those in attendance. Attendees may bring a thumb drive to the meeting with one image sized up to 24″ wide for printing! Please save your image on a thumb drive, label it or place in an envelope with your name on it and bring to the meeting.

Through his success in print competition, Pete has become passionate about the physical print and an advocate for selling printed images and learning from the process of printing ones own work.
