The Gratitude Page
Hi there everybody,
This is our gratitude section where we decided to respond with grateful hearts towards those individuals that have helped us along our way. We would also like to give them a small showcase on our website - what they have done and what they are capable of.
Neil M. Forman
One such person is a man by the name of Neil Forman. He is always approachable willing and helpful. Here with a small summary in his own words.
Summary of His Work
I started off doing Photomechanics at Smit street Tech. I worked at Smith and Hurst as a Lithographer doing colour separation for clients who wanted accurate color for their adverts - like food, cosmetics and cigarette ads.
In the digital age I went on to do the actual shoots for these advertisements using specific methods to produce accurate colour. Using Photoshop I was able to change the white balance and change the contrast in subtle ways to enhance it, if required until the client was happy with the final result.
Shooting works of art, I employ the same disciplines, careful to maintain the integrity and detail accuracy of the work for reproduction or catalogue use. If requested I can enhance colour and density in certain areas or globally, redefine details and clone out any flaws, cracks or tiny marks.
Along the way I have learned a lot of enhancing tips and tricks like adding more glow to a moon or softening spectacular highlights if wanted by the artist. I very much enjoy Artists and shooting art of any kind, even three dimensional works like sculptures.
If you want you work Documented in and around Johannesburg, for reproduction, archive, brochure or website, please chat to me any time.

Gratitude means thanks and appreciation. ... Gratitude, which rhymes with "attitude," comes from the Latin word gratus, which means "thankful, pleasing." When you feel gratitude, you're pleased by what someone did for you and also pleased by the results. Unlike indebtedness, you're not anxious about having to pay it back.
