There is more on them on .

Does it devalue the real events? Does it say something about the nature of photographs and their relationship with what they are photos of? Does it give the old folk something to do? Who knows, but I like them too.

I think Demand's stuff is pretty good. Lines rock. Where would we be without them? Although they would be improved by having some of his friends standing in the foreground, maybe giving a thumbs up or peace sign.

when i first saw them, even although i was told how they are done ,I thought they where pretty boring too.

am not sure how demand gets the images to produce the photo .it may be found photos or he takes them . then what he does is make model of the photo in cardboard and paper and then takes a photo of it and destroys the model , so all we have left is the image of it . these photo are quite big , so am not sure if you could work this out having seen them as i have not seen one. i think this is important cause i believe a work should stand on its own without all the chit chat .

i like them now cause its a space the dont exists anymore, and they are quite generic and could be anywhere , the boredom of the spaces we inhabit .aslo you think its real , but its not . kinda throws you . what can you trust

is a GIMP fork which supports 16-bit images. A UFRaw plugin can be built for it too.

If anyone's interested in learning a bit more about UFRaw I'd be happy to help with a workshop, I've been doing some minor development work on it for a while now. In particular I've been picking up a lot about colour management and have the equipment and know-how to calibrate & profile cameras and screens.[/url]

I have access to a Pantone Huey via a friend. Pretty cheap one but does the job, and recently supported by the open source tools.

Ideally you want to calibrate on the whole setup, because your video card and drivers and cable can all potentially affect what gets to the monitor.

Actually I was going to ask somewhat about my video card. It seems to be working OK but everytime i start it up it says its not running properly as I don't have enough power running to it. Although i Have a 650 PSU and it connected correctly. i'm confused.

Anyway I'm selling it to by a laptop so if anyone wants a 3.2Ghz, 1gig ram, 80 gig harddrive, 128 video card and fully loaded with XP and Adobe multimedia suite with 2 monitors make me an offer.
