AN INTRO INTO PRINTING
While I have been taking photographs for quite a few years now, it is only in the last year that I have really begun to have my work printed. For far too long I simply viewed it through digital means and never got to appreciate the final finished product. On the couple of previous occasions I did have photographs printed I didn’t prepare properly, used cheap print studios and ended up feeling rather disappointed with the end result.
Over the next few blog entries I will be exploring my workflow to show how my shots are taken from an image on a digital camera to a final finished print.
The image below is one of two prints I have donated to a charity auction later this month. The cause is a very worthy one that I have a strong personal connection with - The St Margaret Of Scotland Hospice; opening in 1950, the staff and volunteers do fantastic work with patients who have advanced life-limiting illness and older people with complex medical and nursing needs. As well as supporting their families and friends.
I will also be selecting one print from my portfolio which will be dedicated to charity. 50% of the profits from the print will forever be donated to the hospice. Check back soon for updates.
