Print A Photo




There was a photo expo in Budapest the other weekend. Had a a chance to take a couple of photos with hundreds of other kindred spirits. So there was not really space there and had to snap and try to capture moments whenever possible. My favourite spot was this nicely staged flower girl portrait place, which was made by Rooms Studio.

For me the most interesting thing was to find out different materials for photo printing purposes. It doesn't always have to be just the 'normal' photo paper - there are really a lot of options out there. You can choose luster, matte, watercolour or metallic paper. A photo can be printed also on canvas, aluminium plate, acrylic plate or on glass. I think I will try all of them starting with canvas. I have photo series of 3-6 pics and it would be great to see them on different materials. I have found out that the smallest size what you can print on canvas is 30x30cm. First I wanted to have 15x15 but that might have been too small anyway, so I'm happy with the 30x30cm.

At the Photo Expo I found Poster Shop, which is a place for printing. It operates here in Hungary in two places at Kolosy tér in Budapest and in Debrecen. If you're not living in Budapest you can still use the services of Pigmenta as they ship abroad as well. I've been using Pigmenta for some time now and can highly recommend it. Their service and quality are excellent, and prices reasonable. 

Have you recently had your photos printed?





(FI) Viikko sitten Budapestissa oli Photo Expo. Paikka oli täynnä samanhenkistä porukkaa kamerat kaulassa. Kuvausmahdollisuudet oli väentungoksesta johtuen rajalliset ja tästä johtuen napsin kuvia eri ständeiltä aina kun vaan oli mahdollista. Suosikkikuvauspaikkani oli tämä Rooms Studion kauniisti stailattu kukkaistyttö spotti

Mielenkiintoisinta messuantia itselleni oli eri printtimateriaalien esittely. Mahdollisuuksia on vaikka kuinka paljon eikä aina tarvitse käyttää sitä 'tavallista' valokuvapaprua. Kuvan voi printata kiilto-, matta-, vesiväri- tai metallipintaiselle paperille. Tulostus onnistuu myös canvas-pinnalle, alumiini- ja akryylilevylle sekä lasipinnalle. Taidan okeilla kaikkia näitä vaihtoehtoja ja aloittaa tousta canvasista. Olen tehnyt 3-6 kuvan sarjoja ja olisi mielenkiintoista nähdä miltä näyttävät eri materiaaleilla.  Kuulemma pienin koko canvas-taululle on 30x30cm. Alunperin olisin halunnut vielä pienempiä 15x15cm, mutta tarkemmin ajatellen tuon kokoiset taitavat olla jo turhan pieniä, joten olen tyytyväinen 30x30cm kokoon.

Photo Expossa tutustuin Poster Shop -nimiseen firmaan, joka toimii Unkarissa kahdessa paikassa - Kolossy térillä Budapestissa ja Debrecenissä sekä tietysti myös netissä. Mikäli et ole Budapestissa voit silti käyttää Pigmenta-nimisen yrityksen palveluja, sillä he toimittavat myös ulkomaille ja palvely tapahtuu englanniksi.  Pigmenta on minulle vanha tuttu ja voin todellakin suositella - palvelu ja laatu on erinomaista ja hinnat kohtuulliset!

Oletko kokeillut valokuvien printtaamista pitkään aikaan?

  10. I had no idea that you can actually print a photo on glass. What miracle they use in order to do that? I think it's brilliant! I have stopped printing my photos long time ago, but all these selections of canvases made me reconsider my decision.
