Printing Your Own Photos by Roberto Valenzuela

A lot of people have not experienced the true potential of amazing inkjet printing. I know that sounds like “oh man, who cares” but you’ll be blown away by the potential the camera has when you learn to print.

Shooting and editing is only 20% of the process—when you learn to print, it’s a whole different level of artistry.

“Really good! Money we’ll spent for me, and will save me so much time as it would have taken me forever to figure it all out.”

“OMG! I have always struggled with printing, so after your class and realizing my prints sucked because I was using Srgb instead of Adobe RGB (I use a Canon Pixma IP8720) and could never figure out how to select the paper. I switched to Adobe RGB in color settings and like magic, the selection of papers appeared! The difference was night and day! I tested it on a portrait of my cat, who is a calico with a crazy amount of colors. It's true to life! Thank you! NOW I feel comfortable printing on my own and may even upgrade to the Prograf printers!”

“I love everything that comes from Portrait Masters but I can't recommend this one. This is something you would expect to see in a pretty general Youtube video about printing for amateurs, not in a speciality shop for photographers. I felt like important steps were skipped. For instance, how do you prepare your photos for sending them to print in a lab? This could have been referred to. We often have to print sizes that are beyond our printer's capabilities so we send them to the labs even if we regularly print smaller sizes at our studio. Also, more about the sharpening process. When the noise is too much, we use programmes such as Topaz Denoise that have sharpening as an integral part of their rendering. And that's the first thing you do in the workflow before your edit anything else. If that's the case, what happens when we have to sharpen for prints? And a lot of other questions that could be referred to here but skipped completely. All in all, I hate to leave a not so great review but this was a waste of money. Maybe Portrait Masters could try to salvage this by adding a proper printing session to this module??”

“This was a bit underwhelming for a portrait masters course. This information is pretty basic and the price, even after 30% discount, too expensive for whats given. Most informations is directed towards canon printer users. If you have no clue about printing, sure, you will get some tips, however most of this information can be easily found. I have loved every other product from portrait masters so far.”
