Phew, what a weekend!
The Perfect Printing photography workshop concluded last night, after 2 days of intensive hands on digital printing and workflow down in lovely Margaret River.
I would like to thank all the participants for making the course such a success, and an extra special thankyou to Trevor from Team Digital, who came down for the Saturday with a whole car load of toys, including Eizo Screens, screen calibrators, a awesome Epson 3880 printer, a whole selection of new Cancon paper and canvas to try, a Gigapan and the Phase One. He certainly worked hard for his lunch that day with a whole room full of enthusiastic participants firing hard questions his way.
There was a wide range of experience levels within the course, and Greg and I tried to ensure we aimed our talks so everybody got something out of them. We then modified the planned presentations according to the discussions from the day before and the most common questions being asked, there was even a couple of impromptu info sessions to ensure everyone understood the concepts behind the topics, and a couple of bonus discussions on Photoshop tweaks and tricks.
I do hope everyone enjoyed themselves and found this 3 day printing workshop fulfilling and useful, any feedback from course participants would be most welcome right here on the blog, so dont be shy!
The first day of the Perfect Printing photography workshop for 2010 was last Sunday at the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club, it was the most concentrated day of the three, packed with explanations and printing terminology definitions. There were a few confused looks during the talks, especially during my presentations on colour management theory (what the %#$@ is a Rendering Intent?), but most of those had changed to comprehension by the end.
The test of all of this will come next weekend at Margaret River when the second component will be run; it will be more relaxed and more fun with everyone working on their own images and making prints on the Epson 3880 printer, supplied by Team Digital. We will soon find out who has done their colour management homework…
Back in 2003/2004 i spent a year travelling around Brasil, a country of amazing diversity. Why i was there is another story for another day, but i took a vast number of images in that year (the majority of them on the Hasselblad XPan), most of which have never seen the light of day. I put the first one up last week, and gradually i will be putting more and more of them here as i think the Blog is a great place to finally show them and eventually create a category on the website for that and other adventures.
During my stay in Brasil i lived in a city called Santos for several months, which is on the coast of Sao Paulo state. Santos has the dubious honour of being the largest port in South America, with all the pleasures that brings… Santos also has a very long open beach, and on any given day there are always loads of Soccer games running, of all ages, from 3 or 4 year olds playing with 2 sticks for goals, to semi professional clubs having play offs.

If you’ve been keeping up with the James Price Point Debate, and you are feeling angry by whats going on but also frustrated because you don’t know what you can do… Try these links for a good starting point.
It’s only takes a few minutes, and it’s a numbers game. If enough of us sign up for these the politicians will have to take notice.
I was looking through some folders on my computer the other day (while i was supposed to be working) and i came across my images from Brasil that i shot several years ago and have never done anything with. I have been promising friends over there that these would end up on the website, and so far there has always been too much to do to actually do anything about it. Well, i’m an expert procrastinator, so while i was supposed to be doing other things i sat down and worked up this image a bit.
I came across the old barman of Parati-Brasil, while walking through some magic coastal bush just out of a 15th century town of Parati (pronounced Para-chi). The trail went out around some headlands covered in South American rainforest that ran right down to the waters edge, the coastline was craggy and beautiful with many inlets and deep, steep sided bays.
It wasn’t a particularly long or difficult hike, the path was pretty flat and the views were stunning, but it was certainly wilderness. Read the rest of this entry »
