We write regularly on a range of subjects. Listed below are some written on topics related to Film, Photography and Natural History film-making.

Moving beyond Stills (Canon / Calumet)

The Language of Colour (2004) (Canon Europe's Pro Services site, CPN)
When this was written, Colour management was still not mainstream in the photo world and printers were regularly printing documents with incorrect colour, even for major clients.
Now slightly out of date, The Language of Colour was written for Canon and published as a series of 6 articles (51 pages). with the aim of helping photographers to understand the technology and make it work

This is what we want: Bluechip on a Beer budget (WildScreen)
