Commercial Photographer | Performing Arts & Fine Art Illustrative Photography | EIZO Ambassador
"Switching to an EIZO monitor had a massive impact on my workflow. I tend to make visually dark images, so maintaining shadow detail can be a challenge."
EIZO Apac Ambassador Kris Anderson is a commercial photographer from Brisbane, with a focus on the performing arts - actor headshots, dance, live theatre production photography, and theatre advertising. Kris's personal projects fall into the fine-art illustrative category, and the skills and workflow he's developed are often applied to the theatre advertising work.
For those starting up in the arts, Kris shares a list of gear and why he chose it, as well as a step by step video on how he composited his NZIPP gold award image Senseless.
Switching to an EIZO monitor had a massive impact on my workflow. I tend to make visually dark images, so maintaining shadow detail can be a challenge. I found adding the EIZO to my workflow meant much better control over colour and shadows, and fewer surprises when printing. It's definitely shortened my edit-print-adjust cycle. I appreciate that colour and tone are uniform from corner to corner, and the automatic calibration means one less thing to do. I wasn't expecting my eyestrain to be lessened when I switched, but the difference was noticeable.’
