Get the Best Prints Out of Your Lab

Jon Yoshinaga Cr.Photog.

When working with your lab, how do you make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck? In this class, PPA instructor Jon Yoshinga teaches you ways to ensure you’re submitting and receiving the best work that you and your lab can do!

Jon first walks you through your equipment to make sure that you’re using everything properly, including settings, metering, use of your histogram and more, to create the best images. You’ll watch how he evaluates photos and then makes adjustments so that you can submit superior photos.

Jon then shares the many offerings available at labs so that you know your options, both in and out of your studio. Learn about resolution guides, test strip printing and other services you might want to use.

When you’re finished, you’ll know how to work with your lab as a partner rather than a vendor to create awesome images!

We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.

Jon Yoshinaga Bio

Starting in high school, Jon quickly saw the need to generate an income to support his ever growing photo hobby. Working as an assistant for a couple of local photographers, he eventually started shooting weddings on his own and with additional schooling, joined the photographic staff of an import company shooting for their catalog. 

Having been in the photographic industry as a photographer and lab tech for over 30 years, Jon is currently assisting his wife, Suzette Allen, as the tech-head in her studio keeping the computers running and always looking for a faster, better cheaper way to do everything. As the assistant and trouble shooter in Suzette's classes, Jon keeps the pace of the class flowing by fixing computer problems and helping the lost find their way back.
