Making the Print eBook

Making the Print – Printing Techniques for the Digital Photographer (A Masterclass) by Martin Bailey was released today and is designed to walk readers through professional grade photo printing. I personally have found myself overwhelmed by printing in the past, it can be very difficult to establish a quality print workflow with a lot of trial and error.

Hopefully this book will also take away any frustration with printing that you might have experienced. When printing is easy and results are consistent, all you need to do is enjoy the process, and this should improve the final results of your photographic efforts.

Bailey says, “It’s my intention to help photographers that either don’t yet print—or do but struggle with it to a degree—to not only achieve amazing results when printing, but also to get satisfaction from the process of putting pigment (or dye) on paper. This book will give you a good fundamental understanding of some of the key things to bear in mind as you print, to enable you to consistently make quality prints that look like what you see on your computer display.”

Take your time as you master printing. Take regular deep breaths, and don’t let them turn into sighs. Being able to close the photographic loop, from capture to the physical embodiment of your work in a quality fine art print can be a most fulfilling experience. I hope that this book will help you easily make high-quality prints, and to love printing as much as I do.
