If you found this, you know that I've move www.beardcore.com to a dreamhost server, and I'm using Moveable type. I needed web space here anyway, and decided not to renew my diaryland membership. I think I got all of the blog moved over here.Posted at June 21, 2004 09:19 AM, Categories: Beardcore

Color FSA photos
Just found a link to this story about this book. I don't know why the FSA photos captivate me so, but then so does most anything from the 40's or 50's. It makes me want to go out and document life in Chicago in the 00's.
I think I've written the above paragraph before in this blog!Posted at June 4, 2004 10:36 AM, Categories: Photography

What is YOUR rendering intent?
So I got this swanky new printer, an Epson 2200. THE shit as far as desktop printers go. Yet I can't make it work for crap. I even sprung for ImagePrint 5.6, essentially a $500 printer driver, and it's not looking much better. Photos are turning out kind of alright, but despite all I hear of IP producing perfect prints with no fuss, I'm not seeing it. Everything seems low on the yellow. Faces are too ruddy. And while trying to reproduce a concert poster, which looked beautiful on-screen I might add, I can't get the yellow anywhere NEAR where it's supposed to be. What the hell? The best I can do is to use IP's profiles to proof the colors in PhotoShop and predict roughly how crappy the results will look.
Why are you reading this?
In other news, I have decided not to pay for Diaryland anymore. I think the photos may soon disappear from this blog. I've been downloading it to back up for a future date when I set a blog up on my own website. Enough automated junk!Posted at June 2, 2004 10:06 PM, Categories: Beardcore
