Photoshop 101 For Kids

2 Sep 2015 at 11:48am

Photoshop 101 For Kids

I have cause for concern about my job now.
I had my hand put up to give a couple of photoshop 101 lessons at my children’s primary school and had a great time with the classes I taught. There are quite a few photo wizards on their way up I think
Quite a bit different from my normal adult workshops but good fun and at the end of the day the kids had made me some thank you cards.
Feeling all warm and fuzzy.

My new Epson 4900 Lands Friday

8 Dec 2010 at 10:34am

Now I like to keep up on the latest technology and when I heard about this new printer coming out I new it was the one for me. So much so I ordered two. I am getting my one for home this Friday. Benny from Team Digital is personally delivering it and setting it up for me. He is going to profile it whilst he is down and then we might kick back at the end of the day with a few beers. Now that is what I call service. I will be putting up my thoughts on the printer over the coming weeks but lets just say I am expecting great things from every thing I have heard. Team Digital are offering free 16″x20″ prints from this beast to the first 50 people through the door to have a look. See their blog post here.

Now this means I will be selling my 3880 which is practically brand new. The only reason I am really upgrading is because being a 5 star lazy kind of a photographer I can’t be bothered feeding sheets into the printer every time I use it. I much prefer the ease of roll papers. If you are not as lazy as me and wish to purchase a printer that has probably done less than 100 prints it is on the market for $1395, $600 off the RRP. Let me know if your keen. christianfletcher@westnet.com.au

P.S. that is a very biblical pic of the printer with Benny the believer behind! In my case I get the printer and Benny for a day. I hear he is a great cook too so girls he is the total package. And all you need to do is buy an Epson printer off him. He comes cheap!

Epson Pro 4900 printer

1 Nov 2010 at 9:51am

I was at the AIPP conference last week and got to have a look at the New baby from Epson, the Pro 4900.

I was so impressed I have ordered two. One for home and one to replace our ageing Canon ipf 5100 (Brand C). This will mean I will be fully Epson at home and in the gallery and printing quality will be consistent across the board. My old 4800 was an epic printer and is still going strong at my Mandurah gallery.

Benny from Team Digital will be getting me one this month and I will post my thoughts on it then. Lets just say I expect great things and did not hesitate to upgrade my equipment.

p.s. please don’t tell my business partner I have order two, I was told I could not spend any more money! oops I did it again! Britney Spears style!

Here is a plot of the colour gamut against the gamuts of other reputable printers! This is why I upgrade. Don’t you love these sexy charts.

For more info and a very cool price go to the Team Digital Blog. Tell Benny or Trevo that I sent you and want you to get the best deal on the planet…… ok the best deal in East Perth!………. ok the best deal on Lord Street!

Gigapan Promo Video

1 Sep 2010 at 4:35pm

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/14602062]

Another great video by my brother Michael. Shows off the Gigapan and the fun you can have with it. Now before you guys go, hang on that Sugarloaf shot wasn’t taken with the Gigapan, it is there because the actual image we shot wasn’t that great. Not in quality, that was awesome, in light and feel. It was the wrong time of day. For the video Michael thought this shot looked better, see even with all the best technology in the world if the light isn’t on….

The Cartoon Look

29 Jul 2010 at 8:15pm

Have you ever wondered how photographers get that cartoon look in some of their portraits. That gritty dirty contrasty look. I have been trying to work it out for ages. I think I am almost there. Am I going to divulge the secret?? Hmm, you might have to get on my next workshop! Well thats if you like this look. If you don’t, and I suspect you won’t Hazel, then you won’t care a bit!!

I like it, it is fun to do and creative.

Phase One – see for yourself

24 Mar 2010 at 9:45pm

Yallingup Beach

Yallingup Beach

I think photographing with a camera like the Phase One has given me the spark I needed to get back into shooting. I can’t wait for the day to start so I can go out and shoot, or should that be reshoot all my favourite locations. The P65+ is proving to be better than I could have imagined and at last I know what it must have been like to shoot 8″x10″ film. Not every image is a winner and you have to make sure your technique is spot on. I am having to focus stack to get the depth of field I want which is new to me after having so much depth of field with the DSLR’s. Still the extra effort is worth it and it has made me slow down and concentrate on the image.

Anyway you can’t get a very good idea how good this baby is until you give it a go for yourself. Have a word to Benny or Trev at Team Digital if you are serious about getting into this sort of gear. It will blow your mind.

Now have a look at this portrait of a very good looking fellow! Ok so I couldn’t find a model for the TNFP shirt. Hey the camera even has a self timer so you can shoot yourself as many times as your ego can cope with, mine got up to about 50 shots! Have a look at the 100% crop. That is all man, er I mean camera! The detail is astounding and if anyone out there would like a copy of this for their wall let me know, I can overlay a target so it would be awesome as a dart board. This is the ultimate weapon for a photographer, maybe Peter Eastway was right all along……………… nah!!
