A little print viewing tutorial.
What you see on your computer may seem quite different than the printed image you receive in regards to color, brightness and contrast.
As a photographer, my objective is to provide my clients printed images that match, as closely as possible, to the actual digital image on my computer screen. There are many variables that can influence the colors, density and tonality of a printed photograph that the client sees.
It seems almost impossible to maintain consistent color integrity from start to finish and in reality it is.
As the photographer I can control all of these factors from the time I snap the shutter to the time I make the print but once the print is delivered to the buyer everything, at that point, is out of my direct control.
My photos are optimized to be enjoyed under "Daylight" viewing conditions, meaning, a room lit by natural daylight or daylight balanced display lights used to display the print will make the print look as intended.
There are many different things that can influence the way the photos look on my website, from the default settings of un-calibrated LCD screens (monitors), smartphone LCD screens, CRT screens, all of which have different color, contrast and brightness settings. Most default settings on computer screens are "extra" bright and have a "cooler" (bluer) color settings applied.
I hope this helps to understand how many different factors influence the way a print can look and they will look great in your home or office.
Thanks for reading!
