BounceLite flash diffuser has a bright future

bouncelite00Anyone familiar with Kickstarter will know it’s a great place to discover brilliant new ideas and this new photography accessory certainly fits the bill. The Fotocapio BounceLite was invented by Tony Chau, who found the limitations of current flash diffusers frustrating enough to design his own. His ideas for the solution were distilled through decades of frontline knowledge as a professional photographer and, more pertinently, after working with many of the diffusers currently available. You can read more about this simple, elegant invention and support the campaign on the Kickstarter page here. The project was also recently chosen as a Kickstarter Staff Pick.

Sir Peter Blake Illustrates Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood

We’ve just received the press info for a very exciting project we recently printed, Sir Peter Blake’s, Under Milk Wood. Ted worked with Stephen Stuart-Smith of Enitharmon Editions to produce Sir Peter Blake’s new work honoring the centenary of Dylan Thomas’ birth, a man whose written word has inspired Blake for nearly 30 years and has been beautifully celebrated in his artwork. This edition of giclée prints has been produced on Da Vinci Soft Textured.

The exhibition will be running from 23 November 2013 – 16 March 2014 at National Museum Wales situated in Cardiff. For more info, click here.

The question of choosing rendering intents in the Photoshop print dialogue is asked of us quite regularly so here is some info about how best to use these settings. The rendering intents are basically to tell the software how to handle colours in the file that may be out of the range of the output colour space aka target gamut (printer, ink & media combo).
