I've been printing my images for years and have, through a lot of trial and error, have found what works, and what doesn't. I'll outline in this article some of my favorite ways to produce images in print, in a variety of ways.
Print at Home
One of the most obvious ways to take images from your camera to print is to buy a printer at home. Over all my years as a photographer, I've owned a variety of printers that sat on my desk, but two brands really stuck out as top performers when it came to getting the right output based on what I saw on my computer monitor:
- Canon Printers
- Epson Printers
I found these two brands to produce high quality, consistent prints. The downside is the ink is epensive, but for a small number of prints and the ability to see your results instantly, this is a great way to go.
I also found that it is very important to use the same brand paper of your printer, i.e., use Epson paper in an Epson printer, and Canon paper in a Canon printer.
