Teacher: Greg Miller

What you'll learn in this photography class:

For those who still love and embrace analog photography, converting your analog negatives to a digital file has become an increasingly popular workflow. But how to get the best possible print out of an analog negative, from 35mm to 8×10, can still be quite frustrating. Scanning negatives the right way allows you move to a digital workflow and have complete control over your image using the full range of tools available in Photoshop. All of this to get reliably beautiful color or black-and-white prints from digital inkjet technology.

This class will begin with the “how-to’s” and best practices of scanning negatives, including wet scanning of large format negatives on a flatbed scanner. After scanning their negatives, students will discover the best workflow from analog to digital, using Lightroom, as well as techniques for problem solving in Photoshop. We will also demystify color correction. The class presents the material in a step-by-step way in a friendly atmosphere.

Throughout Greg Miller’s 30-year career, he has printed his own silver and traditional color prints for magazines, galleries and museum exhibitions. In the last 10 years, still working in 8×10 color film, Greg has embraced an analog to digital workflow printing large-scale pigment ink prints. Students should bring negatives to process during the workshop.

This course will be taught in LACP’s digital lab with scanner.  The first six students to enroll will have their own Macintosh desktop computer loaded with Photoshop CC and Lightroom Classic CC. Beyond that, students will be required to bring their own laptop loaded with Photoshop CC and Lightroom Classic CC. Bamboo Pen & Touch digital tablets are available if needed.

Skill/Experience Level:

  • Experience working with Photoshop and Lightroom is helpful but not required. Students should be comfortable working with the Macintosh OSX operating system.

COVID-19 Alert & Policy:

  • Please note this course will be held at the Los Angeles Center of Photography. We are asking that all students be vaccinated or have a negative Covid-19 PCR test within 48 hours. Participants will be required to wear masks at all times, in addition to practicing social distancing.
