What? The Power of the Face: A Roadmap to Great Portraits

See more & sign up!


Take a journey as we explore the physical and psychological study of pulling back the multi-facet layers that are involved in identifying "markers" that will reveal your subject. We will cover behavioral profiling which can range from how your subject sits, to how they hold their hands. Also covered will be the study of your subjects facial structure, identifying anatomical flaws, and solving with corrective approaches for ultimate portraits. These applications apply to fashion, commercial portraiture, or the classic portrait. Some of these techniques have been used by the master painters which are relevant in creating the most flattering portraits of your subjects.


The hit at PhotoPlus Expo

Another year, another (exceptional) PhotoPlus. Fresh off the heels of the Lasal Dual Semigloss 330 launch at Photokina in Germany, we presented the new paper to the US market.  And the response was phenomenal.  

We depleted our pile of sample packs in the first day, so if you didn't receive one email us (with your address) so we can send a kit to you.

Moab Masters Barbara Bordnick, Jim Graham, Jody Dole and Christian LaLonde loaned us images they printed on the Lasal Dual Semigloss, making the paper shine.

Michael Zide printed around 50 of his B&W images in a custom13x19 portfolio on the paper. The paper is truly fingerprint resistant: The book still looked beautiful after three days with hundreds of people flipping through the pages.

Lasal Dual Semigloss 330 is now available in the US.

PhotoPlus Expo - Day One from the floor

Blogging from a very crowded show floor on day one of PPE.  The buzz has been SLICKROCK.  This is a shot of our Slickrock Metallic room featuring large format prints on the new Slickrock Metallic Pearl.  It's a paper that really causes pause.  You find yourself staring at the image wondering what's going on. The photos pop off the paper.

The other buzz at the show is the new Canon PIXMA PRO-1 printer.  The new professional 13" printer officially launched today in the US.  We were fortunate enough to get our Moaby hands on this machine a few weeks ago to test and build profiles, and we can honestly say the PIXMA PRO-1 is a phenomenal printer.  The crazy amount of detail the printer is capable of reproducing is breathtaking.  

If you're at the show, stop by our booth to see the PRO-1 in action spitting out prints on Slickrock for you to take home.

Did I mention profiles for the PRO-1?  Yup, we got 'em.

Experience Moab at PhotoPlus Booth #446

We attend a bunch of trade shows throughout the year, but we aim to make each experience unique for our Moab fans out there.  Next week we'll be exhibiting at PhotoPlus Expo in NYC (booth #446) and we guarantee to deliver on this Moab Experience.

If you haven't seen our new Slickrock Metallic Pearl paper, then you're in for a thrill. We've pushed the envelope to deliver a metallic pearl paper that will transform your image into something stellar.  Our metallic gallery will demonstrate the power of this paper that you've literally got to see to believe.  Be sure to grab the printed samples that we'll be giving away.

Another new paper that we'll be showing off is our Lasal Exhibition Luster 300.  This is not your mama's photo luster.  Lasal Exhibition Luster is a hefty 300gsm paper that produces images that will blow you away.  Thanks to the latest state-of-the-art, fourth generation coating (4G anyone?), you'll see stunning details in your images that only your photo sensors were privy to (until now).

We'll also be featuring our Moenkopi Japanese Washi paper at the show. Photographer Geoffrey Agrons printed out some stunning images on the Moenkopi Bizan that will make you drool.

Speaking of drooling.  We'll be featuring original photographs from Enzo Beretta, Andy Biggs, Robert Farber, Jim Graham, Joshua Holko, Ryszard Horowitz, Christian Lalonde, Jim LaSala, Michael Soluri, Salvatore Vasapolli and Michael Zide.
