Got a Nice Image? Print it!

I’ve never been one to indulge in photographic prints, but I’ve captured two seascapes this year which I count amongst my best work, and which I really wanted to hang on my walls.

I have a somewhat dated (but still very capable) Epson Photo Stylus R210 photographic ink-jet printer (I bought it in 2003 or s0).  However, it cannot print any larger than A4.  I wanted big prints.

Enter RedBubble, which currently has an extra 10% discount on prints, tees et al.  As I have a gallery there which features the two aforementioned images, it was simply a matter of ordering the largest prints available, and receiving a further discount on top of what I already receive when purchasing prints of my own work.  Score!

So, last week I ordered 600mm x 400mm prints (approximately A2 in size) prints, and they were delivered today.

I’ve just hung them on the loungeroom walls, and they look great!

These are the images:

So, if you have an image which you really like, print it and print it big!

There’s nothing quite like seeing your own work as a fine-art print.

    Lovely images. Can I ask what size/format do you upload to redbubble? First my images were too small. Then last week I tried again, too large. I want to put some up with a view to doing a calendar, but I have some I’d like printed.

    Can you tell me length/width/size and format (jpg, tiff, png)? I’d be very grateful.

    Cheers, Odille

      I upload full-size images in JPG format.

      I’ve shot with three DSLRs since 2005, so assuming there was no cropping, the image resolutions would be as follows:

      Canon EOS 20D: 3,504 x 2,336 pixels
      Canon EOS 5D: 4,368 x 2,912 pixels
      Canon EOS 5D Mark II: 5,616 x 3,744 pixels

      As far as aspect ratios, I am very partial to 3:2 or 1:1 in square format, so when cropping, I preserve those aspect ratios.

      Some of my older images may not be in any particular aspect ratio.
