HiDPI (Retina) support

23rd November 2012 | News

This site now supports HiDPI on “Retina” class devices (iPad 3/4, MacBook Pro with Retina display) and similar tablets/screens. If you have one of these (and use a browser that supports it) you should notice smoother and more detailed images. Future content will all display at higher resolution while existing images will be updated over time.

Digital Black & White – One on One

Stairs, Rome - Stephen Best

Stairs, Rome – Stephen Best

This week long comprehensive workshop covers the skills required for achieving the finest B&W results in print from digital capture. Photographic outings followed by working on the resulting images and printing in Macquarie Editions’ studio is aimed at duplicating the process you’ll go through on your own. While there are plenty of aspects to cover, the pace and emphasis will be tailored to your requirements. This isn’t a course in creative photography or seeing in B&W, but concentrates instead on the craft of realising your intentions in print at the highest level, for personal or exhibition purposes.

Print Care Instructions

5th November 2012 | Technical

Careful handling of your prints is essential to ensure their optimum presentation and avoid costly reprints (at full price). If they’re to be framed/mounted it’s best to take them directly to your framer. Allowing time for the prints to cure is also highly recommended (plan for this instead of submitting your work at the last minute). Lastly, when collecting your prints bring an appropriately sized portfolio case to transport them safely. (more…)

Photoecology is an initiative that aims to bring people together to explore the natural world through photography. For the inaugural program, community members came together to explore Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve.

“Viewers are challenged to think about how this place functions not only as a place to enjoy and recreate in but also as a living ecosystem and as an artistic subject.”

Ginette Snow

Ginette Snow

Just Families is a pho­to­graphic doc­u­men­tary that takes us inside the daily lives of ordi­nary fam­i­lies with same sex par­ents. Ginette Snow looks at the sim­i­lar­i­ties between these fam­i­lies and het­ero­sex­ual fam­i­lies rather than look­ing at the one dif­fer­ence. The love, the care, the patience, friend­ship, fun, and chaos, the humour, the reli­a­bil­ity, the teach­ing, the laugh­ter, the lis­ten­ing and of course the prob­lem solving.

The exhibition is showing as part of the Sydney Head On Photo Festival and opens at INDEX, 60 Hutchinson Street, St Peters at 6pm on Wednesday 23rd May and continues until 9th June. (more…)
