Hi all, jst an experience to share, hope i get comments also, bad or gd doesn't matter comments r free. Jst wanted to see if any of u guys have the same prob.
I went to print some pics recently, i found some photos turned out super washed out. Damn jialat. The colors were not vibrant n it was jst plain boring. I personally always shoot raw n do lotsa adjustments in photoshop like exposure, white balance, saturation, blah blah blah. One thing i really love doin is playin with hue of diff colors. for exp sometimes i'll change a woman's lipstick color to extremely bright red. I love tweakin colors, sometimes the pictures turns out extremely vibrant n bright cos of all the colors. Not overexposed, jst u know like a really brightly saturated pic. But not oversaturated. Im always very careful with that.
My prob is when i send for printin, if i dont edit colors i find the pics dull n washed out, but when i like wat i see on screen n send it for print, most of the time it comes out darker then wat i see on screen. My pc isn't caliberated la so thats one of the reasons. But i discovered somethin, i converted my photos to cmyk in ps, send it for print where the dude had to convert it back to rgb, pictures turned out as gd as wat i see on my monitor. Tho he told me i should not convert n give him in rgb, but when i do that prints isn't satisfactory.
He also said shootin Jpegs r easier for prints, but personally i want my photos to look the way i see it n want it, not the way thats easier. My clients pay for my work n vision when they see my port, how would they feel when they see prints bein normal n lack vibrance?
Jst sharin n hopin to hear from u guys, i personally feel convertin to cmyk is better, tho its not for offset printin jst a normal print shop. Ur opinions, experience n views would help alot.
Thank u all.
