Titled A journey beyond creation,the roadshow was held to showcase some of the different technologies used in the reproduction of digital fine art and photography. Visiting Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, the event represented a showcase for the latest rage of products from DES, from providers like Epson, Innova, Pictorico and Chromajet.

Guest speaker Wayne Connelly from Innova in the US was on hand to speak on his company’s range of repro-friendly fine papers. “For paper providers, image quality is the cost of entry, and is no longer the be all and end all that it used to be,” he said. Connelly nominated surface structure, water resistance and the feel of the paper as among the distinguishing factors.

Showcased at the event was a collection of works from photographer Steve Morenos (pictured right), who operates a gallery on the Central Coast of NSW involved heavily in wide-format digital reproduction. Steve’s wife and gallery director Kerry Morenos also spoke on the process of migrating from the traditional process of photographic reproduction over to the digital domain.

“With the technical knowledge needed, making the jump can be daunting for many photographers,” Kerry said. “But for those wishing to bring their photography back in house, DES will hold your hand every step of the way.”

Colour management guru David Crowther from Chromaticity was also present to impart his expert knowledge to attendees.
