Tired of Outsourcing Labs for Printing? Learn the Value of Printing at Home

After a photo shoot, photographers will normally send their images to a company or lab to get quality prints delivered to them. In this PhotoVision video, Sue Bryce encourages you to take your images into your own hands by printing your work yourself. You don’t need to outsource a lab in order to get professional prints: instead, watch your images come to life right off the printer and change the way you perceive your pictures.

In this month’s free PhotoVision video, "Printing in House," Sue Bryce explains how it is possible to get high-quality photocopies straight from your home. It can be the same price or even cheaper than outsourcing, and there is nothing that compares to the pride you’ll feel from creating physical forms of your art all on your own.

By getting a personal printer, you will be able to control every step of the process and do things your way. All you have to do is select the correct paper, printer, and printing profiles. Once you’ve mastered all of this, your effort will pay off through an increase in the value of your work.
