BE OUR COVER STAR

Calling all photographers!

Photography Week is the magazine YOU help to make, so here's your chance to see your best photo featured on the cover of the magazine.

This week we’re looking for a stunning landscape or seascape. Easy, you say? Well here’s the deal… We’d love to see your best scenics, taken near land or sea, but they must be captured between dusk and dawn.

To enter, simply post your image (or images) to our Facebook wall by noon UK-time on Thursday 5 September, and we'll drop you a line via Facebook if your shot is shortlisted (so please keep an eye on your comments!). More than one image is fine, but please be selective – and good luck!

3 reasons to order prints through a professional photog

*****
Whether it's a family photo for a frame or an art canvas for your wall, there are good reasons to order prints through someone who understands the print process. If you leave the final product up to a consumer lab (either online or at your favorite box store), you're likely to be disappointed.

Order through a reputable photog to ensure that your pictures are of the highest possible quality in *at least* these three ways:

1. COLOR. Is your monitor color-calibrated? Have you compared your on-screen prints with those from the print lab?

In many cases, consumer labs such as those at box stores and online photo storage sites do not produce the exact results that the artist achieved. Skin tones may be wonky; colors may be off-hue or over-saturated. The print may have too much or not enough contrast. Even when they get it right, results are typically inconsistent.

Reputable photogs use color-calibrated monitors and proof with a professional lab to ensure that the image on the screen matches the final product.

2. SHARPNESS. All photos must be sharpened for print to ensure photos are as clear and eye-catching as possible. The amount of sharpening required depends on the amount of noise and detail in the original image, the size the print will be and the media upon which it will be printed.

This is a delicate process that takes a lot of practice, but it's that essential step that can transform a good print into a breathtaking one.

Professional photogs know how to prepare your pictures for print to ensure they are as sharp and clear as possible--whether printed at 4x6 or 24x36, and whether printed on photo paper, canvas, metal or another medium.

3. MATERIALS. Although many consumer sites offer various printable media, the quality of the ink, paper or canvas can be questionable.

Reputable photogs have a relationship with a reputable print labs that offer archival-quality inks, papers, canvas and other media, and have top-of-the-line, profiled printers.

*************
Keep these facts in mind when your photog hands over your digital files. No matter how lovely your pictures are on a good screen, when prepared for print by a professional, they can really sing.
