Printing in Pattaya

I have always had a problem getting consistent colors when printing my images.  I was using Kodak but every time they changed their paper or I wanted a 4×6 to match a 8×12 – there was a problem.   To the rescue    Double A Printing Shop   on Thepprasit Rd. AA printing They have among their many  printers, a Xerox 800 wide laser printer/Rip  capable of printing up to 16×24 inch gloss coated paper.   Just what I needed – All I have to prepare a PDF file of the images using a Desktop Publishing program.

NOTE:. I am on the Adobe Creative Cloud with the Lightroom/Photoshop subscription – highly recommend it – but have not decided to get the whole package – i.e.  InDesign – so I’m using the open-source FREE  Scribus program.  II t works fine and does just what I need.

I have made several PDF templates that I just have to drop the images into.

  • 1.)  Full size 14×21  template
  • 2.)  8 – 4×6  template
  • 3.)  1- 8×12  and   2 – 4×6  template

Normally I make 2 ea.  4×6  prints of all finished Photoshop’ed images, keeping one for my display books and one to give to the Model.    In addition I offer to make a 8×12 print of the image the model likes best. – now I can supply a 14×21 in place of the 8×12 for no additional cost.   All images are printed on the same paper so they all match on color. – perfect  -  just place them on the template and save as a PDF using Adobe RGB 1898 color space and  “Double A”  does the rest.  Excellent quality and both Toy and her husband speak English and are experts with their machines – they also have printers capable of producing Poser size Extra Wide prints.

Another from the Sunday Funnies

Sawadee Khrap

Twelve priests were about to be ordained.    The final test was for them to line up in a straight row, totally nude,  while a sexy and beautiful, big breasted, nude model danced before them. 

Each priest had a small bell attached to his weenie and they were told that anyone whose bell rang when she danced in front of them would not be ordained because he had not reached a state of spiritual purity.

The beautiful model danced before the first candidate, with no reaction. She proceeded down the line with the same response from all the priests until she got to the final priest, Carlos. As she danced, his bell began to ring so loudly that it flew off and fell clattering to the ground.
Embarrassed,   Carlos took a few steps forward and bent over to pick it up. Then all the other bells started to ring ……


Pat’s photos from Central Festival

I’ve had another bout of upset stomach and had to beg out from going to Central Festival with Pat and Jerry yesterday.   Missed out on some great images – Here’s a couple of Pat’s from the show there.


It’s amazing the close resemblances of Thais to Indians -  at  least some !


2009 Memories–Gabby’s photo session

Sawadee Khrap

Again just going through my older photo sessions and this is one I hadn’t posted.   Gabby –    Here’s Gabby’s profile on Model Mayhem


In 2009 with my old Canon 10D,  I had the honor to have Gabby pose for me when he was visiting Chiang Mai.  Here’s one of the shots we produced , but at that time I had just setup my home studio I was struggling with the lighting – results very grainy and high noise images.  I haven’t heard from him for several years now, but will send him a link to this post and hope to hear from him and see how he’s doing.

P.S.  My Model Mayhem profile is  Frank2Thailand

I spend a lot of time trying out new ideas -  and I see I haven’t posted any images for a long time so here’s the latest technique I am working on – Applying a wrinkled cover to posters and billboards.


I used this photo as an example  – I am going to start to do more full screen storytelling images going beyond my usual model portraits.  But I also need to practice producing realistic shadows, blends and distortions.

And here’s  a new technique I found on the web for a more artistic treatment of a standard portraitMG-7682-Edit-Dream – the modification of this technique is endless.

So many thing to test out and different approaches to learn – WOW what hobby.
