Since June, I’ve been working at H&H Color Lab, which processes color photos from professional photographers and produces high-end products such as wedding albums, greeting/anniversary/graduation cards, canvas gallery wraps (made by dye sublimation of an image onto canvas and wrapped around a wood frame), and much more. They also can handle normal photo prints.
I’m a contractor, which means I don’t know how long they’ll keep renewing my contract, but that’s really the case for most work these days.
I’m doing desktop applications programming using Java Swing, which is a lot of fun, and I already had experience doing that kind of work. H&H makes several applications that can be downloaded and used to compose, say, an album, a greeting card, or a metal water bottle and then packages up the order and submits it over the internet for processing.
So we have stuff that allows you to drag and drop photos, crop them, organize them, etc. Think of it sort of as Adobe InDesign lite with the ability to order prints.
One thing I’ll say about this company is that they keep you busy. I haven’t had any time to work on outside projects since I started.
