COLLABORATION WITH SPECIALISTS

Our technical workshops are carried out in collaboration with different specialists. We started our program from the collaboration with Agustín Estrada, Erik Cardoso, Klint & Photo, among others. 

If you are looking for training in lighting, reprography, digitalization and other topics related to photo art and reproduction, now you can have it from wherever you want with these materials made especially to work online.

The idea is to have specialised photography topics available on the web at different levels, from basics (coming soon) to tutorials for professional photographers.

ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING FOR PERSONAL PROJECTS 

GERARDO MONTIEL KLINT

Understanding the basic principles of light and shadow, the theory behind their use to create unique atmospheres are the foundational basis for exploring the subjects or objects one wants to represent in an unconventional way. Study, light and shadow as a process of continuous experimentation in personal projects.

SPECIALISED WORKSHOPS

We offer you a variety of technical workshops that will soon increase, adding some on intermediate and basic topics.

RAW FORMATS

Tutorials for different topics of technical work in photography: the use of parameter settings and how to take advantage of them for efficient workflow; the use of equipment and ways of working to make film scanning.

DIGITALIZATION

From the handling of the RAW files, this tutorial, presents the equipment and ways of working for the digitalization of film through the use of the camera, as a more efficient and professional way than the scanner.

REPROGRAPHY I AND II

This topic is given in two tutorials due to the variety of originals to be reproduced and the complexity to be able to do in a correct way each one of the variants that we find in the daily work, the techniques that are used from the zenithal techniques with paper or photo originals to the work in wall are presented progressively.

COLOUR MANAGEMENT

Tutorials for different topics of technical work in photography: the use of parameter settings and how to take advantage of them for efficient workflow; the use of equipment and ways of working to make film scanning.

Topics:The Monitor, Profiling and Calibration, Color Conversion, Color Spaces, Color Management, The Camera and ColorProcedures About the team, Patterns, Camera profiling, The editing program, Workflow and conclusion
This tutorial deals with how to prepare images for printing in general. The materials included are not related to the use of any particular printer, since it would be impossible to cover all the variants of both programs and operating systems and printers or software they use. The tutorial does not deal with the specific steps of each printer, but covers a series of procedures that have to be carried out in any printing process and that are the determinants of the final quality and also ensure that the copies come out as best as possible.
