'Investing for the best camera and lighting system is not an assurance in delivering my vision accurately into reality. Noticing that post-editing takes a big portion on the final result, EIZO monitor becomes the prominent solution that practically helps me in my workflow with its amazing feature.'
I have been very fascinated with photography from the very first time. It has become a main part of my life since I started building my career in 2004. I had the call to learn about photography in general until later on, I found more specific interest in automotive, architecture and still-life photography. These days I tell stories through photography and videography on commercial projects. At this point in my life, I have decided and committed to doing photography with 110% of passion and dedication.
However, investing for the best camera and lighting system is not an assurance in delivering my vision accurately into reality. Noticing that post-editing takes a big portion on the final result, EIZO monitor becomes the prominent solution that practically helps me in my workflow with its amazing feature.
Post Production and Ergonomics
MONITOR: EIZO ColorEdge CG319X: EIZO monitor shows accurate colour and its self-calibration feature supports my workflow efficiency and effectiveness so that I can anticipate any error possibility in the final printed result. EIZO can provide colour accuracy all the time without me having to learn deeply first about colour management workflow. EIZO is easy to use, efficient and shows images beautifully.
COMPUTER: Apple MacPro 2013, Apple Macbook Pro 2018, Modbook Pro: Apple always provides a simple, effective system for the whole workflow.
SOFTWARE: Capture One Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, other Adobe Creative Cloud: I use CaptureOnePro as the best RAW converter and colour grader for my photo files. I also use other software such as Adobe Creative CC software such as Adobe Photoshop to do heavy image editing, Premiere Pro to tackle all video projects, Adobe Illustrator & Indesign for some graphic design projects.
EDITING: Wacom INTUOS 5, Tangent Wave 2: I use Tangent Wave 2 as this tool allows me to do colour grading accurately to achieve beautiful colour combination.
KEYBOARD & MOUSE: Apple keyboard and Magic Mouse
BACKUP: iCloud, Creative Cloud, Mega Cloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, Physical RAID drive for data backup: Using a combination of cloud providers
CAMERA: PhaseOne XF + IQ3 Trichromatic, Sony A7RIV: I like the medium format camera system, especially Phase One. Its colours, dimension and capability in capturing the magnificent quality of images make it hard to be compared with other camera systems.
EIZO pairs perfectly with Phase One, especially the CG319X.
