It’s been a busy last few weeks here at Color Confidence towers.
As we blogged in our last post, March for us is a crazy month with Focus on Imaging to prep, attend and ultimately debrief. In truth, most of February is also spent doing the same thing, and this year was no exception!
From my point of view, the last few weeks have been especially busy, particularly as this was my first ever show! I’d always had half-an interest in photography, or at least a grand idea that one day I’ll follow the England cricket team around the world photographing them along the way. Having worked at Color Confidence for just over 6 months now, I’ve come to realise just how much there is to photography; from input calibration techniques to making sure you print out on the right paper. Might have to put that dream on hold for a little while!
Focus further opened my eyes to the photography world. I’ve learnt as much in 4 days talking to you guys as I have in the day-to-day workings here. I can now fully demonstrate how to use a Color Checker Passport and ColorMunki Photo (just about) – which isn’t bad considering I’d never heard of them 6 months ago!
The show was hard work, but great fun. Having a quick look around (mainly when nipping to the loo!) there appeared to be plenty on show too, hope you enjoyed it?
Of course, what all this really means is that seeing photography through your eyes, and chatting to you guys throughout the show means I can see things from your perspective. I now know just how much work you all have to put into creating the perfect image, and just how many options there are available to you.
From this blog perspective, it also means I’ve got a better idea of the sorts of questions, queries and ‘problems’ you might go through. I really hope this blog eventually turns into a technical masterpiece for you, full of wonderful information, hints and tips to help you on your photographic journey… We should be posting the latest of these technical postings next week.
So, what’s in the news this week?
A few new products and/or coming soon products for you.
I mentioned choosing the right paper earlier, Tecco paper have just released these three new papers suitable for a variety of photography styles.
We actually had the Tecco stand with us at Focus, so I got to see their paper first hand. The image quality of the paper had to be seen to be believed, especially when viewed under a viewing booth or one of our Grafilites. In fact, we’re actually offering a money back guarantee on our Tecco paper range, and also free delivery this month… either way you can’t lose, why not give them a go? (And let us know how you get on)
We’ll soon be stocking the latest offering from Booq too, including a range of swanky new camera bags – if the prototypes are anything to go by, they really are very cool bags – and also a Booqpad for your new iPod2!
Technical post up next week, but as ever, please get in touch if you have nay questions or need help.
