    That sounds like a GREAT idea. On a calm night it would be cool to shoot out over the sea and get stars in the sky and off the water.

    You'd have to drive out pretty far from here for that!! Although, you could go the other way and sail out to sea... it gets really dark out there. Of course, you'd need a boat, and a crew...

    I wish I lived closer to a bigger city. I would love to be able to shoot both lights of the big city and a sky full of stars in one night without a whole lot of travel.

    I bet. I live in a mega-troplis. Silence is ... errm, something that doesn't happen, pretty much ever. Not to mention a night sky dark enough to see that many stars ...

    Hey,

    Iím extremely new to prepress and I know maybe a touch of the basics. I hear a lot of you guys saying working at a print shop is one of the best things you can do for yourself as a designer.

    I really want to get a good understanding for this stuff. I feel so lost on this forum sometimes when you guys talk about this stuff. Example spot colors and gamut are a coupleÖ. I feel I could learn so much more from this forum if I only new what these things meant.

    Do you guys know any good books, or websites that can help me out?

    Thanks

      You can learn a ton from this site. The library section features a pre-press dictionary.

            I just wouldn't try to compete with Morea if I were Kool!
            Good thing I'm not Kool though.
