    Aside from snapshots, the only photos I've ever printed are B&W's I did myself in a darkroom. My walls are bare and I haven't done a damn thing with any of my high-speed photos, so I think its about time I did something with them.

    I was thinking about having each of these three printed on canvas separately and then hanging them spaced apart along a wall. I also considered putting a black gradient between them and printing them all as one. I guess I'm looking for opinions on whether or not this would be a good set to print. I've done very little chopping on them so far, so any suggestions on PP is appreciated as well.

    neat shots, I'd do them all separately and hang them with a few inches between them horizontally.

    Thanks for the input :bigthumb:

    Any suggestions on good places to have them printed? I checked a couple local shops and their prices for canvas prints seemed really high. I can't remember exactly how much they were, but I think they were around $35 apiece for 8x10.

    Is that mounted? What size are you looking for? what thickness stretcher bars?

    I wish the first shot was brighter. Fix that first.

    The price was not mounted, and I haven't decided on size/stretcher bars yet. I want to go look at some different samples first.

    I made a sound-trigger circuit that triggered a flash and froze the motion. . .and then shot things with a .22 in a detached garage located in the middle of town :o:rofl:

    That shit sounds like the best photo shoot ever. Guns + camera = win.

    I was questioning its brightness as well, I'll try to play around with it on photoshop some more tomorrow. I also thought about changing the blue/yellow/green to some different color combos and seeing how it looks :dunno:

    It was pretty great. Because I had to wait until it was completely dark, I always ended up shooting until like 2am. I'm pretty sure my neighbors hated me. . .

    canvas is going to be expensive no matter where you send it (or maybe talk to Jared:eek3: )

    that said I've always thought MPIX did a good job, and I heard great things about WHCC.
