From glowing pixels to my walls


in Daily updates, Photography

I am thinking of getting a few 8×10″ or larger prints made from some of my photos. While the exclusively IKEA furniture does create an overwhelming sense of individuality on its own, it might be good to add a bit of my own touch to this apartment.

I don’t suppose anybody is aware of a capable Ottawa photo lab (something akin to Vancouver’s Custom Colour)?

How high res are your digital originals? 8×10″ may be pushing it, for a non dSLR digicam.

I always go to future shop for mine of that size. 8 by 10 isn’t that big, so unless you want to be really particular about the colour balance, they should do the trick (assuming it is actually a national chain…I’m sure there’s something similar).

You’re right. With a 3.2 megapixel camera, 8×10″ is pushing it. I do have negatives for all the stuff I have shot on film, but they are in Vancouver.

Perhaps one of those large frames that incorporates a number of smaller prints 5×7″ or 4×6″ would be a better option.


I have yet to see a Future Shop here, but such chains are certainly one possible answer.
