 Coloratti Martin Bailey has just completed the first stop on his Pixels2Pigment Tour in Okinawa, Japan. We caught up with Martin this week to find out how that first stop went and get his thoughts on the rest of the tour. “The first Pixels 2 Pigment workshop in Okinawa was a huge success!” said workshop leader Martin Bailey.

“It was a pleasure to work with such a talented group, and to see their faces as many parts of the puzzle dropped into place. Over the two days, we cover everything from capturing quality pixels, through an optimized and streamlined color managed digital workflow, to printing and other output options. Everyone left with an efficient and stress free workflow, a print of their own, and a smile on their face. It was a total pleasure and I can’t wait to get started on the rest of the workshops.”  Martin posted a blog and podcast update afterward.  Click here to enjoy more of what Martin has to say about Okinawa on his blog and podcast!

Here’s what folks who attended the Okinawa stop had  to say:

“Martin Bailey delivered a well organized class. He was professional,  highly knowledgeable and communicated on a leval all students could understand. This was an awesome class and I highly recommend taking Pixels2Pigment with the amazing photographer Martin Bailey. Thank you Martin for improving my photography!”

“Before attending the Pixels2Pigment course I had absolutely no knowledge on color management. Martin’s wealth of knowledge provided me a whole new world in color management. Thanks to Martin I now use my X-Rite ColorChecker Passport to ensure I am getting the most vibrant and correct colors from each of my shots. I now feel more confident in the Digital Darkroom and my editing and printing. I only have had the pleasure of attending a few workshops in my career, but the Pixel 2 Pigment workshop is a must for anybody that wants to learn Color Management.”

David Orr of Okinawa, Japan

“I would like to say that this was the most enjoyable and informative class I have ever been to for photography. Martin was great! I learned so much to the point it makes me eager to do more of my own printing a lot more even if it’s just for myself. In fact, I learned more about my printer’s capabilities that allows me to print to more media than I thought X-Rite Coloratti Martin Bailey Pixels 2 Pigment TourI could do. Highly recommended for those who would like to step up their knowledge in photography. Personal printing has become one of the skills many look over. This course will help anyone understand the great importance of printing, helpful workflows on how to get the best out of your work, and possibly sell them if you desire to go that route.  Breathing color’s sample book was also available.  The paper is stunning! I think the samples alone has convinced me to go away from Canon paper to Breathing Color’s media, which seems to be much better for fine art. Anyone looking to learn how to do canvas printing and mounting will also greatly benefit from taking this course.  Thank you Martin for making this course a blast.”
