I’ve been printing on my new Epson Stylus Pro 3880 for about a month now, preparing the 40 pieces for my West Nebraska Arts Center show that opens on March 1. If there’s a way to crash-course making good prints, this is it. I’ve been very, very impressed with the results, as have clients who have seen the work. The challenge is getting those results if you’re a novice, and this tutorial is meant as a starting point for giclée newcomers.
One of the great joys of my life as a teacher is to encounter highly talented students; Allyson Pelchat is one. While she’s very young (a first year), her work is far greater than her years. I’m reminded of the work of Natalie Dybisz (Miss Aniela), one of the rising stars in digitally manipulated photos, who was featured in Digital Photo Pro a few years ago. Take a look at her other work at her blog, Allyson Pelchat.
