Fine Art Photo Protection

Because of the size of the fine art reproduction I'm working on, I've had to come up with a way to frame and protect the print. A 44"x11' print is simply too large to cover with glass.

Thanks to Kansas City photographer Michael Regnier for suggesting the use of Oleopasto as a solution.

Oleopasto is a translucent oil-based gel. I can apply it to the surface with a brush or a knife. It has the double benefit of protecting the surface of the print and imparting a textured surface.

I'm one step closer to being ready to print the Handel Evans piece. The 11' wide painting is located at ISI in Philadelphia.

Epson 9600 Print

I'm continuing the test for the 44" x 11' (that's right foot) print I'm going to pull on the Epson 9600 printer. I don't even want to think of how much it will cost if the printer hiccups.

Data Asset Management for Professional Digital Photographers

As many of you know, I've been working for a bit over a year now on an online tool for professional digital photographers. This editing tool, Pixlpro, allows corporate, event and editorial photographers to delivery their digital images via the web.

I've been using Pixlpro for my own digital submissions to clients here in Philadelphia and throughout the country. I'm now happy to announce that, together with my brother Bill Tracy, we've launched Pixlpro as a subscription service for commercial photographers.
