Photographer Ben Huff, who recently moved to Juneau from Fairbanks, will be offering a new photography course, Digital Photo Printing, at the University of Alaska Southeast this semester. This evening course will be open to interested locals as well as students. It runs from 6-9 pm Tuesday, from Sept. 6 through Dec. 13,
Huff said the class will teach students the skills needed to make successful digital and inkjet prints. Discussions will focus on color management, professional practices, workflow and the ingredients that make a aesthetically successful print. Professional Epson printers will be used for output, and students will have the opportunity to make exhibition quality prints of their photos. Ultimately the class is designed to enable students to produce successfully on paper what they see in the field.
Huff is currently finishing up a long-term photography project, “The Last Road North,” based on images of the Dalton Highway. Begun in 2008, the project includes images of the road itself as well as portraits of other travelers and Alaska residents. Huff hopes to complete the project this year.
