Masur Announces Photography Class

The Masur Museum of Monroe Louisiana will be hosting an “Introduction to Inkjet Printing for Photography” to be held on Friday, May 13th and Saturday, May 14th from 9am-5pm with lunch break.  The class fee is $250 for non-member and $210 for members. This two-day class will cover the basic setup for making high-quality prints of photographs in both color, and black and white with an inkjet printer including the use of paper profiles, printer settings, basic image preparation and troubleshooting.  We will be using an Epson 3880 printer and will have several different papers for everyone to try, both matte and glossy.  Participants are encouraged to bring several of their own photography image files for printing.

This workshop will be lead by Jenny Ellerbe a Louisiana native and a self-taught photographer who has received national acclaim for her work. She has been featured in the publications Lenswork, Louisiana Conservationist, Arkansas Review,and Louisiana Life. Her work is represented by the Afterimage Gallery in Dallas, Texas. For the past 4 years she has taught annual workshops for the Ansel Adams Gallery and Owens Valley Imaging and will teach a new workshop in Abiquiu, NM for 2011.  In 2008 a monograph of her work, Here is Home, was published by the Canadian firm of Scotia Waterous. Her work resides in the permanent collections of the Masur Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas.
