Where do you print your images?

Clients often ask me where to have there images printed, and from personal experience, I know where to tell them NOT to have their images printed.

I remember the first 16 x 20 black and white image I had printed, it was at a "big box store", I was so excited to pick it up and how quickly that excitement was replaced with a profound feeling of disappointment when I saw that my print was not black and white at all, it was actually a green and grey. It sucked, it REALLY sucked.

Keep in mind if you are reading this post (and viewing these images) on a crappy uncalibrated monitor going any further would probably be a waste of your time.

Okay, now that only those with fancy shmancy calibrated monitors are left, let's move forward.

What I want to share with you today are two print comparison images from Wendy L. White and Corey Ann Photography.

They both took the time to have some of their photographs printed at a bunch of different places and laid them out so we could see the difference.

As they say, an picture is worth a thousand words, so let's get to them.

The first print comparison image is from Corey Ann Photography:

The next is from Wendy L. White:

If you follow this link it will take you to Wendy's site where you will see MANY more comparison shots.

Both of these images can be viewed much larger simply by clicking on them.

Be sure to visit both Wendy L. White and Corey Ann Photography as you will se some gorgeous photography from both of them.

So, today's lesson is... don't trust your valuable photographs to just anyone.
