first piece in the toolkit is the printer obviously. So there is a bunch of them out there in the market. The biggest thing to look at, how big they can print. How much can you afford. So if you want to print massive photos and you have an unlimited budget. Get the biggest one. You can kind of like a camera, get the best camera you can afford. The best printer you can afford. What defines best though. It's harder to explain. Um At the end of the day what matters is gamut. Gamut is a big fancy word to say that how well can this printer transcribe all the colors that my camera has captured. So the more gamut, the wider gamut you have in the printer the better it will do transcribing your cameras colors, making good prints. That's what you want. At the end of the day. I personally use Canon printers and a Diehard Cannon guy. Um I use Canon cameras, Canon lenses. So the whole ecosystem is Canon. So it makes it makes sense for me to you know print with a Cannon. Um That also applies to pape...
r choices by the way whichever brand of printer you use. Um just roll with manufacturers paper at least for the beginning, you get 2030 prints under your belt. Then you'll have understood much better the color management and you can get start upgrading into the fancy papers like the mule is and the mo abs but don't waste your money at the beginning with fancy paper. Just roll with base quality paper from your manufacturer. So I have two printers that Cannon program 4100 which does by 60 prints. Which is really nice to make massive prints. And then I have a smaller one. The Canon program 1000. That's just right there. And that's easier to make smaller prints Like 1722 and a half by 11 or smaller. Yeah. I mean it's nice to have a big printer and a small printer. It's a luxury. But it's just nice if I want to work on smaller files. Just a pro graph the big one, it's just a bit harder to manage. So have small prints to do. I'll just use a small printer. Honestly if you want to get into printing seriously this one behind at $1200 is the sweet spot. This is like the Prosumer version of a printer. And I think it's a really good place to to go. I mean like it's there's no limits to this thing. What really matters is that your printer can transcribe the colors of your camera. It's called gamut and that's the spec that matters most to me. The rest is just irrelevant
Through and also to the point! Well worth the watch, and I feel confident to print on my own now.
I would recommend it for anyone trying to understand the print process better but, I think Alex needs to work on speaking a bit clearer and maybe slow down a bit when he is moving his cursor around in LR as was difficult to keep up with him and to see what he was doing.
