Who qualifiesThe purpose of SideStoke is to provide information about people actively working in the field of woodfired ceramics in Australia and New Zealand
If this description applies to you and you wish to appear on SideStoke contact firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no charge involved but you will have to provide images of your kiln, photos of your products, a mug shot of yourself, and some details about your techniques. Kiln plans and photos of kilns under construction are very useful.
Sending digital imagesYou have the options of sending them on CD or by email.
If sending on CD simply post to A Rosser, 126 Watts RD, Eungella , QLD 47857
I will acknowledge receipt of the CD.
If sending by email, send to email@example.com.
Be aware that digital image files may be very large indeed which could cause problems.
Emails which are too large for my email service provider may disappear without trace.
If you know how to change the size of digital images then reduce the size of the image so that it fits into a square of 1000x1000 pixels. Still send just one image file per email and wait for confirmation of arrival.
If you are not comfortable with image editing programs try sending just one image in an email, and wait for confirmation that it arrived here.
Getting photosStudio quality photos are not necessary. The best thing to do is to get hold of digital camera and take the photos yourself.
A simple photo setup for photographing pots is described here. If used in indirect lighting this setup will produce images with manageable shadows but they may look a bit dull. No need to worry about this: I can make some simple corrections to the images to effectively correct the exposure.
