solsticeretouch You shall not pass! Only if you high pass, then you're fine. What do you think of my new retouching gear? It gives me superpowers. This is what happens when you play with your gf's finds from etsy. Right @bellakotak? 19h

solsticeretouch Saw these photo books by Canon at the Photography Show in Birmingham this past weekend. Couldn't believe how good they looked! 2,400 dpi explains a lot. 3d
  •   garethleigh I remember when 300dpi was considered good enough. Wow. 3d
  •   npeppin What's your opinion on Eizo's color edge for the average photographer? 3d
  •   sarahvandco Ouch bad typography though 😬 they should have words with their graphic designer/artworker/AD 3d
  •   ianmears It had better be damn good print quality as one of those costs somewhere in the region of £350K! 3d

solsticeretouch I can't believe Wednesday is here! I'm having our Capture One webinar live on the web (for free). I'll be showcasing the brand new Capture One 8.2! There's a brand new tool that I'll be showing which you have to tune in for. It changed my personal workflow instantly.
If you want to know how to use the program and have always been confused, I'll make it understandable.
Broadcasted live worldwide, from the interwebs! Actually, from the UK at 5 pm GMT.

  •   solsticeretouch @faze1er how was it down? I might have not understood. 1w
  •   solsticeretouch @ej_fotografie haha! Thank goodness 1w
  •   faze1er @solsticeretouch yes. Sorry iPhones some times change what your typing. If you were using the color green to cancel out red that treatment would have prompted me to ask how was it done ( blank layer set to what mode) or (grey layer) etc.... But I understand what you've done here now. You just added color for demonstration purposes. 1w
  •   dracorubio Makes perfect sense indeed. 1w
  •   donnakaradsheh Yesss! It sounds like an idea for a party theme! 1w
  •   jennbischof That's so awesome. I need to watch your @creativelive class again. 1w
  •   solsticeretouch @jennbischof thank you :)! 1w

solsticeretouch At a printer here in Oxford, watching @bellakotak get her fine art prints done. It's such a cool feeling seeing print shops all over the world. This one was in the country side, with vines growing over the house with a cobble road driveway. Inside filled with familiar technology.
