About this demo:
Are you interested in doing alternative photo processes in your own studio? Have you read about creating digital negatives for printing with processes created in the 19th Century, but feel lost? Join us for an in-person/zoom demo with James O’Connell, lab manager at Bostick & Sullivan. He will be demonstrating how to create LUTs for Digital Negatives. LUT files or Color look-up tables are necessary to create digital negatives with the correct amount of density for a specific process.
James will walk you through all the steps necessary to create a LUT file specific to your process and studio using EasyDigitalNegatives.com. Each process needs its own specific LUT but the steps of creating a LUT are the same for each process. Following the demonstration, there will be a Q&A to clarify anything that came up in the demo.
