The 300 PPI Print Myth

May-26-2012 1:53 PM

A little while back while whipping up some high-res versions of stickers for a friend, I was wondering how much PPI is enough for printing. This article shows that you can get good prints from 150 PPI upward. I went ahead with 300 for the stickers, though, just to make sure they look nice and crisp (especially because they prominently feature text).

Typewriter Picnic

Feb-16-2011 9:53 PM

I have been out shooting a lot in the past week and it’s been a lot of fun looking for things to photograph. A few rolls of film and memory card dumps later I have a number of things to share here and on flickr. The shots here I took while out with my brother, I decided to bring along this typewriter a friend gave to me as a prop to shoot outside somewhere and we found a couple of great picnic tables in a park lit with the beautiful light of the afternoon sun. I could not have asked for nicer colors, the orange, greens, and browns seem to melt together and I am excited to share something so vibrant with everyone in these cold winter months.
