For many of us, photography is more than just a hobby. It's a vent to destress and remain focused. It keeps us sane when the going gets tough. It relaxes us and allows us to pause even for a short while and to look and observe. Photography is a much-needed drug for mental stability in these unstable times - it becomes part of what we need to survive.
It may come as a surprise that I find the same cathartic experience when printing. Each year, between Christmas day and new year's day, I relax by printing some of my favourite images onto a varied range of beautiful fine art papers before placing them into a couple of Easybooks (see Fotospeed's website here). This is a great way to showcase your work to friends and family. They also make beautiful coffee table books, too - we only have a finite amount of space on our walls after all.
Fine art giclee printing is a beautiful thing to learn and, once you know how to do it properly, there's nothing quite like it. I have just one place remaining on my printing masterclass in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in May where you will learn how to create perfect fine art prints the first time, every time. Why not make 2022 the year of printing and join me on this wonderful workshop? Full details can be found on my workshops page here >>.
