Visual Artists talk about how printing with Epson SureColor P607 gives your work a richer dimension.
Whether you are a digital artist, shutter hobbyist, or a pro photographer, you will find that printing your work gives it a different dimension compared to merely viewing it on a screen. Prints offer a richer visual experience than the digital medium, bringing photographs and paintings to life on a more vibrant level. Here, top photographers give their thoughts on how their work becomes more emotionally engaging when they print it using the true-colour technology of Epson SureColor P607.
Kristupa Saragih founded fast-growing online community fotografer.net, where registered members currently numbering 539,000 from all over Southeast Asia can gather to share their photos and form group discussions on the web. While the group’s base is expanding online, he still finds value on printing his work, and advises his fellow photographers to do the same. “A print will always be the most realistic representation of an image, as it is the only medium that is truly tangible and actual. It is ultimately the best way to judge work. An image isn’t truly finished until it’s in printed form.”
Chong Su Chung, who is one of the most-sought after pros in Malaysia, agrees. “There’s an emotion when I hold a great print in my hand. It’s not possible to envision the full scale of the images on monitors or mobile phones.”
“If you are really serious about photography, start printing your work today,” recommends travel photographer Alex Soh. “Printing is so critical it will help you master your craft even during photo taking. If your work is just in your computer, then no one is going to see or react to it.”
Engineer-turned-shutterbug Torwong Salwala likens photography to preparing a perfect dish. To capture an image beautifully, lighting, mood, composition and effects must come together. “To blend the things we have effectively is like cooking – you can put in all of the ingredients but you must know how much of each ingredient to put in for it to turn out well.” When he wants to impress a client, he says he always prints out the image and gives it to them. For him, the printed photo makes an impression and attracts people more than a shot displayed on the screen.
The technology behind the Epson SureColor P607 has enabled these artists to showcase their best work and engage their audiences in a richer medium compared to a digital screen. This user-friendly, high-definition printer delivers unprecedented black density and vibrant colours, giving a better visual and emotional experience for both artist and audience.
