    Hard Proofing method

    Every once in a while, you reach and 'aha!!' moment in photography
    One I remember is discovering luminosity masks

    More recently, I found a method to hard proof just the once before sending off prints for clients.
    If any of you do large prints for clients, I would HIGHLY recommend Sean Bagshaw's tutorial which can be found here

    With reference to the original shot

    Thanks for the share Dylan, very interesting indeed, I was going to ask you why your photo going to the printers was banded, but after watching the video I understand now.

    Yeah, the banding got me curious as well .. so I HAD to watch the video too.

    Makes sense

    {Nikon} -> 50/1.2 : 500/8(CPU'd) : 105/2.8VR Micro : 180/2.8ais : 105mm f/1.8ais : 24mm/2ais
    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC
