Although I’ve been quiet, I’ve been busy. This week was doing copy work (creating digital versions of artwork) for @catalyst_artworks. Last fall year I put together a copy-work studio (now co-existing with the home gym). I documented creating the copy-work studio at https://tinyurl.com/ycuhsokt in case others want to do the same.
Here is the high-level of how it works.
- The transfer of colours to the digital image are calibrated using an X-Rite Passport calibration card (you can see it here covering part of the image I was working on at the time).
- I use Lightrooom to adjust the images to match the colour calibration.
- The monitor I use is calibrated using a datacolor Spyder X Pro to ensure the colours I see on the screen match those from the calibrated image.
For lighting I use two identical studio stripes with a polarization filter over a diffuser. When combined with a correctly-oriented polarization filter over the lens I can eliminate any glare from the lights.
I still haven’t set up the printing side of things but that is on my projects list for next month.
