Well, I have to admit, I have not worked on my new website for almost a month now. I am busy making prints for the upcoming Christmas Bazaar, and planning our annual Thanksgiving dinner.
On the printing front, I am having trouble getting the color right on my canvas with the new printer. I have made several icc profiles, but still can’t get the colors right. No idea what is happening, but I suspect I have bad paper as my Luster paper prints colors perfectly. This has taken up most of my time every evening. I spend a couple of hours making the profiles (scanning 2500 patches), and then waste more paper doing test prints…then it is back n forth with the company I bought the printer from trouble shooting. I may just give up and print all of my photos I will sell on the Luster paper. I hesitate to do that because I will have to buy glass for the frames which makes the prints heavier and also have to deal with glare. With the canvas, I can frame without glass, and my work looks more “painterly” on canvas. Oh well.
By the way, the photos below are the ones I am having so much trouble with. The water keeps coming out GREEN…I can’t get that nice turquoise color to come out, and it’s the Turquoise that really makes the photos (in my opinion).
ANYWAY….I promise to get back to work on uploading my galleries, to make more blog posts, and to finally finish this website as soon as possible….it’s been an uphill struggle…thanks for your patience (or maybe only spammers visit this website)! Ha!
