LONG BEACH, Calif., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson today launched a
series of videos celebrating the Black-and-White print, available now on
Epson's website. Looking back to the traditional Black-and-White darkroom for
inspiration, the new tutorials offer unique insight into the latest digital
Black-and-White printing workflows for both novice and more experienced
photographers. In addition, in-depth interviews from John Sexton and Kim
Weston – two photographic icons who work with traditional Black-and-White
tools – underscore the importance of the Black-and-White print.


"To many, the Black-and-White print is the very definition of photography,"
said Dan (Dano) Steinhardt, marketing manager, Epson America, Inc. "We wanted
to capture what Black-and-White has meant emotionally for generations of
photographers and also provide a digital workflow foundation as we celebrate
the Black-and-White print, be it traditional or digital."

The video interviews with Sexton and Weston will be available as a four-part
series, with a new part available every two weeks. From his gallery in Carmel
Valley, Calif., Sexton shares his start in photography, working with Ansel
Adams, and his amazing body of work produced with traditional Black-and-White
film, chemistry and paper. Weston, grandson of Edward Weston, talks about his
photographic heritage from his grandfather's original home and darkroom on the
Monterey Peninsula, as well as his workshops and his own highly collected
traditional Black-and-White work.

In addition, four video tutorials are available, featuring digital
Black-and-White printing workflows. Taped in the digital lab at the Santa Fe
Photographic Workshops using Silver Efex Pro^™ 2 and an Epson Stylus^® Photo
R3000, video topics include:
