About Dick Stein
Mr. Stein has printed tens of thousands of photographs. Starting in the mid 1970's with hand printing and developing black & white photographs then later color portraits at their in-house studio lab. This hands-on approach has always been a part of Mr. Stein’s methods. In the mid 1990’s he starting working with digital photography. Photoshop 3 had just been released and it could take hours to work on just one imaging waiting for the computer to update and save a single image file was painful. However as technology improved amazing image transformations could be accomplished, impossible changes before the arrival of digital image manipulation. The studio's first digital camera was a 2 mega pixel Canon D2000, of which the body alone cost $14,000. While image quality was good, it paled in comparison to today’s 12 – 16 million pixel camera wonders.
Mr. Stein now works with Photoshop 9, and Workstream DS software and many other software products. Studio cameras used include the Nikon D2X, Fuji S2 and Nikon D70. He has been working with digital for the past 8 – 10 years, long before most photographers made the change to digital. He can help you become better, faster and more profitable at what you do, creating and selling photography. Dick is still involved with Stein Photography and this first hand knowledge has helped bridge his connection with photographers and the lab services he provides.
