Print Lab Comparison

After nearly every session I am asked, “Where is the best place to get prints?” So I decided to get test prints at the top 5 generic, everyday photo labs. I was surprised at how much they all differed from the original image file. The colors were way off (overly saturated or overly lightened), and details were lost (shodowed areas became black and muddied). So I then got prints from my professional lab (and other professional labs) to see the difference. After the comparison, I can honestly say that in order to get true to file prints you really need to go through a professional lab. And I am updating my proofing gallery website so that you can have the best possible professional prints ordered from your gallery and shipped directly to your doorstep.
