Have you every wanted fine art printing tips? Well I have some for you! One of the biggest things is to re-edit your photos before sending it to print. A good rule of thumb is to lower your screen brightness to 67% on a laptop and 45% on a large desktop. After you see your image at that brightness, you can see where you need to raise the shadows, brighten the sky, and adjust the vibrance. Anything you don’t like, you would fix it then.
I will go a bit deeper into my process in hopes to help you all!
This was my originally edited image.
When I made my brightness to 67%, I brightened the photo a lot. Then the sky ended up becoming too overexposed and there was not not enough detail. So I went back to all my photos I had taken and found the darkest photo with the most sky detail. I then brightened the whole picture but added a mask to darken the sky back but keep the barn bright. I also darkened the reflection too. The whole photo was looking bright so I decided to warm up the colors to make it look night as bright. After a lot of other small details that I took care of like straightening the image and cropping it in a bit, I came up with my final print!
Fine Art Print
After finishing my final print I went onto canvy and put it into some mock ups to see what my work would look like in real life.
