Hosted by Daniel j Gregory

Episode Number:

In this week’s podcast, we answer the top five questions I have been answering about printing or the past few months. If you listen to the podcast, you know I am a huge fan of printing, and so I am excited to be able to answer some of the common questions that I have been asked.

  1. What is the proper rendering intent to use to print my photograph?
  2. What is the best paper to use for my photograph?
  3. Should I let Photoshop/Lightroom manage my print or the printer?
  4. I have seen that Canon and Epson offer plug-ins for printing. Are the plug-ins worth printing with or not?
  5. When you switch papers or print the same image months later,  how do you make sure that the prints are the same from day to day?

Hopefully, as you listen to the podcast, you can find the answers to some questions you might have. If you have other questions or want to follow up on something from the podcast, feel free to reach out and shoot me an email, and I’ll see if I can help out.

In this week’s podcast, I share some thoughts on pricing your work and selling your work as art for the wall. Rather than focusing on what to price, I’ll share with you some of the key things to consider when pricing your work and taking those first step

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
