2009 Calendar!

26 12 2008

Hello! Despite appearances I haven’t forgotten about this blog. Originally this was set up just to post updates from my trip to Asia. From this point on, it will turn into a general blog about my life and, in particular, my photography. There are several massive posts waiting in the wings, all about the summer of 2008 and what I’ve been up to. I still need to process some photos before I can post those. That’s because I’ve been consumed with processing all 13,584 photos from Indonesia and Malaysia! That job is finally wrapping up; one of the products of that work is this:

14 images from Indonesia and Malaysia.The rest of the photos, all edited and fixed, are here; (replacing the unedited proofs that had been there).  There are also a few videos in the mix there – some of the diving videos from Sipidan, Borneo are favorites of mine.

On a process note, I’ve used zazzle.com for the past two years’ calendars and I’m still very impressed. First of all, the print quality is excellent. Nicely saturated color, attractive glossy paper (the rear cover is matte), very accurate guides for bleed area, and a very simple, logical interface for managing layout of photos and text. I’m particularly thrilled about the lack of color management problems – just upload sRGB photos, and the gamut, contrast, and brightness all seem to match my calibrated monitor perfectly. The previous services I’d used for calendars could not do this simple task. Maybe the general state of the art has improved since then, who knows. Anyway I give zazzle a hearty A+.
