For the last three weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of setting up my new Epson 3880 printer. This means I can print up to 17×22″ prints and the quality equals or surpasses my local pro lab. Just amazing. With two young children, the ferrying of prints 25 miles back and forth is time I just don’t have these days so I’ve been patiently waiting for the right printer to come along at the right price. I will continue to utilize Pictage for client orders but all my personal and portfolio work will go through the 3880. I purchased mine from B&H and they still have a rebate offer on up to the end of June.
The black and whites coming out of this things are just simply stunning. I just received some fine art velvet paper so I cannot wait to try this out. It’s also altered my flow of presenting my work to client consultations. Apart form my albums, I now can feel very proud of my in house prints on 13×19 presentation paper.
It’s the summer, so shoots are slowing down and it’s great to take a bit of a breather and focus on just shooting the kids most days.
I’m really looking forward to going back to the UK next month, chilling out in a pub somewhere and seeing mom and dad again. It’ll be the first time mom and dad have seem Emma, our seven month old so it should be a blast.
