Preparing Photos for Printing

People love seeing prints made from their best images, but many don’t want to do this printing at home, for space and cost reasons. That’s why services from Henry’s Photo Centre can make getting great prints very simple.

In general, there are two printing routes: make your prints yourself at a self-service kiosk in your Henry’s store, or submit your order online and have it shipped to your home or for pick up at your closest Henry’s location.

Digital Darkroom: Post-Processing for Still Photos

As a photo and video instructor, I get the opportunity to meet folks who are at different places on their creative journey. At some point, most come to the juncture where they want their finished work to be more than what comes straight out of the camera. In this first of two articles, we will take a look at the rationale and options for still photographers, who are, or are considering moving into making their images better through post-processing functions.

Depth of Field - Feature Image

We know by now that a camera lens does not focus at multiple distances at the same time. There is only one place that will be in perfect focus from the focal plane, and that is determined by where you focus the lens. When we focus a lens, there is only one focal plane to subject distance that is in perfect focus.

Yet we see that some areas in front of, and some areas behind our point of focus can also look sharp and that range can be different depending on some specific criteria. This zone that we perceive as being sharp versus the area that we perceive as being soft is what we are calling the “depth of focus”.

Getting Started with Photo Printing at Home

Photos that are not printed are often dead. Social media lifetimes are so short that while the internet keeps everything, no one sees anything about five minutes after it’s posted. Worse are the millions of images left to die alone in the dark on hard drives.

The only way to preserve memories with any kind of chance of success is to make prints.

TTL flash is EXACTLY the same as TTL available light metering except that it meters the flash exposure and may or may not include the available light as part of the process. If we are so willing to trust TTL available light as a starting point, why not TTL flash?

GNARBOX Feature

In recent years, we have seen more and more cameras coming with dual memory card slots. Some even have two identical slots to make life easy.

If you are shooting irreplaceable images, such as at a wedding, on a trip, or at other one-time events, having a second copy of your photos gives peace of mind to those concerned about memory card loss, theft, or a card going bad.

See the full article for tips on how you can back up and edit your images using GNARBOX, without having to lug around a laptop or depend solely on memory cards.
