Hey Alex,Second this. You will see things in print that you might not see on screen as well. I've had to reprint many times due to some details I missed the first time around.
It's great your getting the positive feedback for your images.
If I can make a suggestion - if there is an image in your folio of work that you like, trying getting large prints of them.
In my opinion printing photos out at the larger sizes changes how you look at and appreciate your own work. This is something I'm revisiting myself, as I've got too many images that have remained in the digital realm. Keep up the great work!
+1 me too
I had a very nasty experience with this. On one of my first paid photojobs. I took what I thought was a clever group shot (the subjects stood on a bridge approx 100m away from me on a bridge, and me on another bridge with the 70-200L II + 2xIII TC. Well, the problem arised in postproduction. I was fairly new to Photoshop, and unbeknown to me at the time,- quite heavy-handed with the sharpening. It looked great to me on the screen. I did not know that they would expose the picture on a 3m wide and 1.5m height steel plate... The two people in the middle got somewhat of a halo around their heads. Luckily for me, only people who knows pictures and pp sees this, but a great learned lesson for me. Now I always zoom heavily in on the picture whenever making corrections.
The second reason why I agree that you should start printing, is that the choice of paper/material greatly influences the kind of expression that you want for the image. I have a Canon Pixma Pro 1, and it gives me the opportunity to experiment with different paper types (also from different brands). The difference of your moose shot on a matte type from Canson vs. a high gloss one would be considerable. Given the hardness of your light and highlight I would probably opt for a high gloss rendition, as detail are accentuated on this type of paper.
just my 2 cent
