Printer 02

I've been through the Fine Art Printing videos from Luminous Landscape — twice. 

It seems clear that 12 mega-pixels is enough (at 180 dpi) to print at A2 sizes (for reasonable viewing distances). What is also clear is that not all pixels are created equal.

A2 will probably not be right for printing most hand-held work unless the light is good and the focus right on. So, what does this mean? It means that it was a good thing that I got a tripod for Christmas from my daughter.

I was in country Victoria a couple of week ago and had hoped to give the tripod a workout. Unfortunately, it rained hard — very hard — for many of the days there.

I strongly recommend the Luminous Landscape videos. They address many fundamentally important issues. 

And, as Jeff Schewe (one of the presenters) has a long association with Epson, the videos were particularly relevant to my situation.
