So you are a new member and just joined. why? you want info on how your printer works and why your images come out looking poorley and how to improve. You want to ask the pros ? We know a lot about this stuff. Some are working in Fine Art printing. Some have work for years with Nikon Ambassadors who know printing backwards and forward.
You put some money in the game to play and ask Q’s on this site. You put your image up asking for advice. You content is here, it was not free for you to make that content. You want quality work, you don’t want to waste paper, ink, etc…
So say I give you the secret formula to print, then some Joe Q. publick stumbles in, becuase we have removed the barriers for entry, to see what crits/info is avail on how to print. Worse yet, that person screenshots the info and puts it up on his SMED account to let his friends how smart he is.
I don’t know what the user base here, I’m new also, 30 days in, it is heavy west coast and Utah, but that core group is wicked active and make some great stuff. Being an amerture means ‘to love’ which from what I have seen is a core value of the website.
There are plenty of other pro websites that you can goto. I’m in a few myself, a well as musuems and camera clubs. It is refeshing to see all this content on NPN from all these phtographers, full size images, of landscpae, birds, wildlife, we have stumbled into a gold mine.
The crap is out there on IG,FB,TWTR. As an indiviual you can decide what bucket of crap you want to play in. And we do have to play, but this a safe harbor that I’d prefer not get polluted by SMED.
