Having worked on all the stills inside the new book of the BBC’s Blue Planet II for most of the year its a great relief that the project is no longer secret!
Very pleased to see Mark Carwardines new book drop through the post recently: Mark Carwardine’s guide to Whale Watching in North America, USA – Canada – Mexico.
I often need to make advanced plans around quantities, sizes and transmission of images for my clients and to aid this I use some simple maths to quantify things. To aid this further I have created a set of web calculators covering all the common tasks.
The chances are that if you try this with an image in your Photoshop the result will be incorrect (for instance a 10″ image may be nearer 7″ on screen). The reason for this is that by default Photoshop assumes you are using an early Apple monitor that has a resolution of 72dpi. In actual fact most modern monitors display many more dots per inch (pixels per inch) hence making the print preview too small. To make an accurate sized print preview you need to enter the actual dpi for your particular monitor.

Very pleased to have worked on the new book from the Natural History Museum titled “Unforgettable Behaviour”
The book shows some of the most interesting animal behaviour from past “Wildlife Photographer of the Year” overall and category winners and adds descriptive text that adds context and depth to the story of each image.
Im a big fan of having a better understanding of the world and happy that this book is not just visually strong but also contains a depth of knowledge in the subject matter.
t was my job to translate the RGB images supplied from multiple sources into a cohesive and consistent set of CMYK separations that could be printed safe in the knowledge that shadow, midtone and highlight details are preserved and best represent the image on paper.
