Surprising as it may seem, I seldom print my work these days, as it seems to be all about the “web” and FB and online presentation…
However following some connections that I made last weekend at the Light Factory, I have been invited to make a presentation to one of their Photography Groups next week and I thought it would be a good idea to take along some tangible, tactile material for them to share.
Although I have my “Big Bertha” wide format printer here at home I thought it might be interesting to explore some professional printing opportunities…. to that end I uploaded some files, a scant few days ago, to AdoramaPix and have been blown away by the results. Absolutely……. superly amazingly good!
They’ve currently got a $6 deal for 16×20″ prints, so I uploaded 7 prints as a bit of a test and OMG… how happy am I! I reproduced my Fractal images on Metallic Paper and my Peazy Fairy, which all turned out really well. I did a bunch more on the Lustre paper and am equally happy with those.. (and no, I am not an affiliate nor do I get any promo from my good vibes!…. I am just a happy customer!)
So now I have a “few” more, like 14 or so, on the way, all big 16″x20″ which if nothing else will make the empty stairwell walls pretty!
It’s also been an interesting exercise to curate the folders of work that I have, some of which has not been seen before…. and deciding what I would print….
Models, Iceland Landscapes, Creative Work, Venice….
I’d forgotten how good it feels to hold a print in your hand and just savour that oddly intimate and tactile experience…..
… and I haven’t even got started on on my bare naked ladies yet!!
