Its rare that I use my printer, maybe a couple of times per year. Today is one of those days. I was looking at the prints on my wall, of my various travels, and see that I have none from Cuba, this visit to Guatemala, India, nor even my trip to Europe two years ago. Time to get printing and refreshing. Instead of buying new frames and new mats, I simply print new photos, take the olds out, store them…

Some of my friends, and coworkers, will ask: When are you going to post pictures of your trip? Now, that’s a good question. Of course, I post them here as I write blog posts, but, as my fellow photographers know, selecting pictures to post or print is a process. I’m still going through the photos that I took in Guatemala, some 2 weeks after my return, and I’ve found exactly 3 that I may want to print. The rest, good…

There are many scenes that I love from the movie Office Space, but this has to be one of my favorites (UNCENSORED). Though they didn’t show the brand, I’m sure, based on my recent experiences that this had to be an HP printer. If you’ve not scene the movie, these 3 software developers were extremely frustrated with this printer because it always gave errors whenever they tried to print. PC Load Letter?

Beware: The link is the uncut version. NSFW (Not Suitable For Work) 😀 I wanted to go all Office Space on my printer the other day. I wanted to print a few…

The cool thing about the Internet and blogging in general is that there are always voices out there that will challenge you. Here, thankfully, is no different. In my post yesterday about the P510 and printing above a certain size, I made an assertion that one would get crappy output above 8 x 10, perhaps; however, that was a faulty assertion, I have found out. After reading comments I thought: Certainly, this could be pilot error; after all, I would…

Addendum 2012-12-23 Generally, the smaller sensors found in compact cameras will produce images that are more than acceptable for casual photographers. However, the more serious photographers who pay more attention to details and want even higher quality in a picture will be better off with a camera with a larger sensor. ~Easy Basic Photography I’m still going through my Grand Canyon photos. This one, I really like. On the screen, it looks magnificent. However, it is teaching me a few…
