Eric Cheng to speak at NCUPS on Friday
This is a quick note to inform you that I will be speaking at this Friday’s NCUPS meeting in Fort Mason (Room C-370) in San Francisco. I’ll be bringing some large lightjet prints made from Canon 1Ds and Canon D60 images, and will speak generally about the history of underwater digital imaging (from a consumer standpoint) and a bit on the additional workflow required to get digital images to print and on the web.
The talk starts at 8pm, but “social time” begins at 7:30pm.
