Nice pic, Bill!

Hmmm...is anyone else beginning to wonder if Bill is a pyro?

BLee inspired me to try a tiny bit of amateurish lightwork....the results isn't the best but I do like the ghostly effect of my face in this one:

I've been playing with the following shot for printing purposes. I really REALLY need to get a monitor calibration tool.....

print samples... that's the best way you're going to be able to tell what your finished product is going to be

especially since there really is no such thing as pure black on an LCD monitor, you're never going to get 100% perfect color.

so your test sheets are your best bet.

Yep, I've got 3 test prints now on 3 different types of paper (all 8.5x11):
Moab Anasazi Canvas (cool "painting" like effect due to the grain of the canvas)
Moab Entrada Rag Bright 300 (not bad, vivid colors, gives it an "older" feel)
Moab Colorado Gloss (also not bad, but some of the colors aren't as vivid as expected.)

The Moab Colorado is primarily geared towards pigment inks, and my Canon uses dye based inks. That may explain the drop in vibrance.....

All printed via Photoshop CS4 (controlling color) on a Canon Pro9000 MkII using Moab's ICC profiles.


I might print a 13x19 on the Moab Anasazi canvas and do a "museum wrap" with it. I need to buy the paper though, and at nearly $70 for the 20 pack, I need to make sure I want to go that route.

I've rearranged my work space in the house, and I have a huge open wall above my computer just begging for some stuff. Figure I might as well try and fill it with my own creations, if possible.....

what year was Wrigly Stadium built?

Thants a nice printer you have Scollins! Was looking into getting one of those for myself, but i think i think it would be good for me to wait a bit before going that route, need to get my skills up some more to justify itl.
