New printer means color prints are now in full effect

After some time away from color inkjet printing I made the jump back recently and am very pleased. The impetus of the new purchase was to print my own portfolio for reviews and new clients, which would replace my current iPad presentation. The iPad is nice and displays beautiful images but nothing to me beats a physical print that can be held. To me photography is not meant to live in a series of 1's and 0's in space, which is why i still have a darkroom and print my film work and now with my new canon pro-1000 and canson baryta photographique paper digital work will once again find a physical place in this world.


The first print I made is one I took from my cottage on Lake Winnebago called Lake Study 1. It was shot on a calm early morning looking west as I watched the day begin. I have been taking this same photo from almost this same spot for many, many years and this one was a great place to start for my new printer, and it does a amazing job. Now I can keep adding select color images along side my silver gelatin b/w prints to my print store and available those interested. I am pretty excited and have a lot of fun ahead of me.
