    The setting in the image capture and editing processes known as White Balance is a curious one indeed. The human light perception system is so complex, and so intuitive,  that we don’t totally understand how it even works. All human … Continue reading

    Here’s a serious question… who should be preparing your photos? Typically, the three folks (in descending order) generally charged with overseeing the quality of publication photos are: the photographer, the publication’s production department, and the printer’s pre-press department.
