Re: An oldie from a while ago...

Opinions of a hobbyist Onslow...I find the image very well done, presenting a look I'm sure you intended...a minor technicality as Ps acr shows some highlight clipping, (left background and roses) I however can see no loss of detail and find no change by reducing the highlights so basically a mute ...

Re: An oldie from a while ago...

I don’t do portraits or studio work, so my critique isn’t worth much, but it looks pretty near perfectly executed to me, good use of lighting, nice color, good handling of skin so that it’s smooth but not plastic. It would be hard to find anything to fuss about (I admit lip piercings sort of creep ...

Re: Printer profiling

You wont get a fight from me Onslow, unless it is over a schooner or 2 or.... My printing is for home use, I'm not a Pro. Absolute? I found it in P/S printer set-up. I had not seen it before I bought this printer, or indeed not taken any notice. I use print preview in P/S and yes, the colours are w...

Re: Printer profiling

Onslow; Nice to see you back. I did post my experiences with my new printer, the Epson surecolor P800 and like you I now print and work in the ProPhoto RGB 16bit settings. I found that when changing from relative to perceptual the colours on the screen swam around. It became a case of, which is mor...

Re: Printer profiling

I like you and am excited to have you join us. Welcome Home! If I may ask, how far are most printers off, and is it important to create a profile for each? S- Cheers for that. :) In my experience, most photo printers are reasonably close when used with the manufacturers papers and print settings. H...

Re: Printer profiling

That is very interesting. I’d like to know more about what you’re doing that that might be do-able for someone who doesn’t have printer calibration devices. My Epson r3000 died last month, and I have replaced it with an Epson P400, a step down in some ways. I don’t have the P400 figured out yet. It...

Re: Printer profiling

Firstly, I wanta shout out a big "welcome home" to you. I've noticed your past posts, both images and feedback, and had hoped you would return. Secondly, I'm so far behind you in the area of printer color management that anything I say about it may be a joke to you. Many of us lack the knowledge, s...

Printer profiling

I understand peoples eyes may glaze over so feel free to skip... After deciding to sell the 24" printer, I am getting re-invigorated again for some photography. 1st thing today was to create a print profile for Ilford Smooth Pearl for my Epson 3880. So, I printed the targets yesterday, scanned and m...

Re: Hilary

Ernst, I have seen the B+W version of this and really enjoy your B+W stuff. However, for me, the color here really lifts this image and the textures give it an old masters feel. I really do like this image.
