SIG: Digitial Imaging
Yesterday we had a very entertaining and educational presentation from Guy Gowan who was not afraid of saying what he believes. Guy’s approach to the reproduction of images was developed from the world of graphics and the use of rotary drum scanners. This clearly demonstrated these unit’s ability to achieve levels of image quality beyond what is possible with digital cameras. Using techniques derived from his knowledge of these scanners, Guy demonstrated how to implement these techniques using the tools in Photoshop and achieve images with superior image quality. Controversial at times, always entertaining, and we left hoping we had notes detailed enough to try out these techniques at home.

Me too, please.
Yes, please. I would like to know more.
Whilst Guy's presentation style was bordering on intimidating I found a lot of what he said very constructive. It is refreshing to see and hear someone who is not afraid to challenge 'the way things are done'. I took a lot of notes and one of the most useful was his process for applying contrast. I created an action and now use it most of the time. If anyone wants it spelt out here I would be happy to write it up as another comment.
