Tomorrow I’ll be joining the Out of Chicago team and ten other Out of Big Sur instructors to present a free webinar called From Lens to Print. We’ll all be sharing insights and practical advice on the photographic process, from before pressing the shutter to the finished print.

The Out of Big Sur photo conference next March will include a special emphasis on that whole process, including printing, because of the rich photographic history of that region. Many legendary photographers made that area their home, including Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Morley Baer, and Henry Gilpin, and their “west coast” school of photography placed a great emphasis on printmaking.

The webinar starts at noon Central Time (so 1:00 p.m. Eastern and 10:00 a.m. Pacific) tomorrow (Thursday, July 27th). Registration for the Out of Big Sur conference will open immediately after the webinar. You can use the code MICHAEL250BIGSUR to get $250 off the registration fee until August 4th. But I’m told that the conference is already 70% full from pre-sales, so the remaining spots will fill quickly! To register for the free webinar, click this link:
