Epson’s New Exhibition Fiber Paper is “The Real Deal”

by Scott Kelby  |  6 Comments

On Monday, Epson announced their Signature Worthy Exhibition Fiber paper, and last week before their announcement, Epson sent me some printed samples, and a stack of sheets that I could test for myself. I have to tell you—this new paper is absolutely ‘the real deal.’

The black and white reproduction on this paper is just off the charts for anything I’ve seen coming out of an inkjet, and I’m now spoiled to the point that I’m not sure I’ll be able to print on anything else. I really think the texture, look and feel of this new fiber-based paper is going to finally win over that last bastion of the photographer who was clinging on to the notion that lab prints were still king. This is that big a deal.

Also, I found this interesting; while this new Exhibition Fiber paper is now clearly THE paper for black and white, I was stunned by the quality and richness of the color reproduction as well. This paper is just sick!!! (in a really, really good way).

Here’s a link to Epson’s Pro Imaging site, and here’s Epson’s press release on this new paper, and while you should definitely read it to catch all the technical blah-blah that I skipped, you’re going to have to see it and feel it for yourself to fall in love with it (and believe me, you will).

Coupla Quick News Bits

by Scott Kelby  |  1 Comments

Here’s a coupla Monday quickies:

I found this over on PDN’s Pulse; it’s a list of “The 15 Best Magazine Covers Since 1960″ (as chosen by YourCover.com), and it includes a category called “Best Use of Photoshop.” It’s a fun, quick little article, and will start your Monday off right. Here’s the link.

Rod Harlan, over at the new site DV Confidential, posted a different perspective on my new “Photoshop 7-Point-System” book (I wasn’t going to unveil this brand new book until tomorrow, when I hope to post a short video about it, but apparently, the word is already out), and you can read it here. Also, if you’re in the Tampa Bay area, Rod is speaking tomorrow night at the Media Professionals of Florida meeting. Here’s the link for info on when and where, in case you can go.

If you’re not sure which version of Photoshop you should be using, Adobe has posted a page that will help. Click here to go there.

That’s it for now. I’ve got three other posts today, so scroll on down to check ‘em out. Have a great Monday!

Scott Kelby Prints Now For Sale at “Digital Photo & Art”

by Scott Kelby  |  3 Comments

There’s a brand new source for buying Fine Art prints online, called “Digital Photo and Art” which debuted at Photoshop World Las Vegas. This new site features some of my own photography for sale, along with fine art prints from Bert Monroy, Ben Willmore, and Jim DiVitale (here’s the link to my images on their site).

I’m offering two sizes of prints, 13″x19″ and 16″x20″ prints, and 100% of my proceeds from the sale of my prints go to “Springs of Hope Kenya,” which is in the process of building an orphanage and clinic for orphaned and homeless children in Kenya, so if you do buy one of the prints, you know you’re helping an incredibly important cause, and one that I hold dear to my heart.

Note: If you do buy one of my prints, please let me know because there’s something I’d like to send you, as my way of saying thanks for your support of Springs of Hope, Kenya.
