A Nice Intro to 8×10

I have seen a renewed interest in the largest image sizes lately (4x5, 5x7, and 8x10). I love to shoot my 8x10 and scan the neg on my flatbed... 1 to 1. Makes a big file that prints like a dream at 8x10 to 16x20 (after Photoshopping the hell out of it). Getting a scan [...]

Simple and Basic…

2015-11-19T17:23:50+00:00 July 1st, 2006|Categories: Photography|Tags: , |

But all in all, a good little article on the basics of night photography. We at Artisan HD live in the heat of the desert, so shooting at night may at least be a bit cooler. Night photography technique: "With the camera held firmly in place you can fire the shutter and make the most of [...]

Amazon Web Services: OnLine Storage

2017-09-21T23:14:25+00:00 July 1st, 2006|Categories: Professional Printing, Technology|

As photographers keep accruing more and more terabytes of images, these services will become more and more affordable. There are many players in this space and I think we will see some photographer niched sites in the near future.

Still a good format

I spent some quality time with my Mamiya RZ on vacation. Couple of rolls of Fujipan... nice quality time. About 23 minutes... but still - got some nice shots of the pier and such. I like shooting the Mamiya still, even though I have gone mostly digital. Here are some good links for medium format [...]

Really, REALLY Big

But hey... we like big images here at Artisan HD. Wired News: "The photo was created using the centuries-old principle of 'camera obscura' after a gumball-size hole was opened in the hangar's wall, allowing a tiny beam of light to enter. The image then appeared upside down and flipped left to right on a sheath [...]

Photojojo » Panographies: Panoramas on Steroids

2017-09-21T23:14:43+00:00 July 1st, 2006|Categories: Graphic Design, Photography, Professional Printing|

We can imagine this cool technique for office graphics and lobby graphics. The unique textures that are created with the overlaps would draw viewers in, and the very modern look of the collage would make a strong statement about the company. You could also do some clever mounting and set the whole image up as [...]

Are You Listed?

2016-04-05T08:49:27+00:00 July 1st, 2006|Categories: Adobe Photoshop, Photography, Professional Printing|

Did you even know about the list? Adobe is an important supporter of our work as photographers. Their professional listing page seems an excellent place to be listed from. You must be a member of a professional organization, but that is the only requirement. BTW... don't put a listing there if you don't have a [...]
