Questions about Copying

A number of clients have recently asked some basic questions about copying, repairing or retouching a photograph, so i thought i would answer some of these queries here.

We start with what happens to the original image and the answer is that is it used to create a digital version and then its role is complete. It is placed in a flatbed scanner which then produces a digital version that can be edited, enhanced and then sent for printing. Scanning is quick and does not harm the image.

One aspect that is important is that the original image is never sent away. It isn’t dispatched to a photo lab or anywhere else. This means that if you use one of the digital services, you are dealing directly with the person doing the work  – me, Richard Flint. No shop assistants or nameless individuals. The original photograph remains safe.

Add to that the ‘while you wait’ aspect where a photograph, negative or slide can be copied and returned quickly without having to leave it anyway, it allows valuable images to be copied with no risk of loss. Ten minutes and i have what i need to work with and the original can be back in your hands. Simple.

Finally i often get asked what i types of things can be digitised or copied and the answer is pretty much everything from pencil drawings to old negatives. The only issue is the size of the original which is fine up to A4. Anything larger than that would need special scanning.

Photography for BBC2 Documentary

Two images, shot by Richard Flint especially for  a TV documentary, have been supplied to the London based TV production company ClearStory for inclusion in a World War One history documentary called Long Shadow to be aired on BBC2 in 2014.

ClearStory’s website states that Long Shadow will be :-

‘Tracing the legacy of the Great War through a hundred years and eleven different countries, historian David Reynolds explores how the war haunted the generation who lived through it and builds a powerful new argument that the conflict unleashed forces we still grapple with today.’

More details will follow nearer the broadcast time.

A Portrait of a Merchant Adventurer

The book Merchant Adventurers by James Evans was launched last night in London and I’m pleased to say that the book features a fabulous portrait – a painted portrait that I photographed over the summer – of the Tudor era Arctic explorer Sir Hugh Willoughby.

So if you’d like to see the portrait of the rather dashing Sir Hugh,  who helped establish the first trade routes to Russia, why not buy a copy of James’ book. It’s a fascinating read.

Friday morning saw the launch of the Wendy Tea website – a site featuring glass artwork photography by Richard Flint Photography…. but there’s more!

The website itself was also developed and constructed by Richard Flint Photography in a package that delivered both the photography and the website to the client.

The website description on the website design page nicely sums up the client requirements :-

The Wendy Tea site uses audio, video and photography with additional features including a book format journal, social media integration, photo gallery and artwork sales pages to provide the artist with a stylish and artistic presence online. Created to promote and sell glass artwork, the website will also allow the artist to express creative ideas and artistic concepts.
