Does anyone know of a good "Standard Pic"? Not really the picture type, more to do with resolution, color and scan quality. I have worked for 10 years in a professional photo lab mostly looking after weddings and portrait pictures, enlargments etc, I was doing quality control, what we had to do was match the overall color of new prints with a "standard test print" that was from Kodak, we used to call it "Shirly". It was basically a close portrait of a woman at a set color.
SO what I am looking for is something similar, (not women but aircraft!) not just color but resolution quality too.
Out of all the pix I have sent (about 45) only 2 have been accepted.
I would like to have a "Standard Pic" that I could use for my use so I know at what quality to keep my pictures at.
Thanks everyone, I hope you can help!
After talking to Eduard he has been uploading his old shots for a while now and in my opinion, some of the best on this site.
Have a look at his other shots and if you can get them like this, you will be doing good!
But as I said, everyone has different views so keep your shots coming. It's a very enjoyable hobby and I'm sure it will give you many great moments and I will keep a look out for your name on the upload page
It was shot with a Nikon 6006AF, scanned with a HP 3200C ScanJet(recently discontinued and replaced with the 3300C ScanJet with is a slightly better scanner), and edited with The GIMP for Windows 95/98. If you want the URL for this program, e:mail me and i will gladly give it to you.
