The Epson P900 … The Ease of Printing is Here!

Epson P900 with roll paper works effortlessly!

 With no cables for Maggie to grab, pull on and disconnect, I print from my desk with my MacBook while I continue to work on the iMac. The Epson SC-900 has made it way too easy to print!  While my efforts at being a reformed print-aholic have gone out the window with the Epson SC-900, like my friend Vinnie say, “It’s like printing money”! The roll paper adapter which is a totally new animal (pictured above) from any previous model makes printing even faster. No more spool to insert. No more hassle loading paper through the back slot. You literally drop the paper roll into the back (don’t drop it!), unroll the paper slightly into the slot, press a button and you’re ready to print! The prints coming out are simply, gorgeous to the point I’ve reprinted many for my own walls! But it doesn’t stop there.

Using Epson Print Layout 1.5.2, adding a new paper profile is soooooo simple! I clicked on Media Type, add Metal Luster and EPL went out to the web, grabbed the profile, and loaded it onto the Mac. It couldn’t have been simpler or easier. But the goodness doesn’t stop there! As I mentioned before, EPL has a special treat for us Metallic users. The Carbon Black or Black Enhance Overlay produces stunning results! The visible difference in the DMAX makes the reds in this print jump off the paper. If you’re looking at upgrading or getting a new printer, I can’t recommend the SC-900 enough to you! Now, back to printing.

This episode of the Moose Podcast #232 – “Just go click” is a question from Julie which goes right to the heart of the matter. Do we need to think, do we need to do anything but just go click? My answer just might surprise you.

How Do You Find Them?

It would see between all my online classes in the past ten days and my podcast yesterday, I reached a few of you and that excites me to no end. Lots of questions that can all be summed up in “How do you find them?” Find who, the photo buyers, the photo editors, the folks to send your text/photo packages to to get published, that’s who!

Understand this all starts with your images, then your written word and those should be based in part on the magazine you’ve selected to send them to and what’s this short piece is about. You need to haunt the magazine rack, doctor office and tire store, any place where there is a stack of magazines and then start flipping through the pages. You might need to think outside the box. Like if you’re wanting to place an article on wildlife, you might look at Golfing which does a lot on wildlife on the greens. The key here are your photographs, your story and then the homework. Once you have the magazine you want to submit to (and don’t start with the big boys, start local to learn the ropes), just open it up!

You will find the Masthead and there you will find the photo editor / art director / head illustrator, the person who buys the photographs. Yes, I send my text/photo package to them. No, I don’t send a query letter. Why would you try to sell someone your photographs with a piece of paper with just words on it?

So you find them starting by looking at your own photographs and then doing some homework. It’s a well proven technique that works time and time again for photographers. There is more on making a submissions here on the website as well in my podcast archives. Have faith in yourself, you can find them!

Moose Adventure ’21

Yep, Moose needs his Moose fix and YOU are invited to join me up in Alaska 24-29 October 2021. It’s been three years since my last visit and I’m way overdue. We’re based out of Anchorage and everyday walk up the valley and then back out. It will hopefully be cold, perhaps damp, and most definitely spectacular!

We are there near the end of rut when the numbers of Moose are at their highest. We normally have forty to sixty Moose to observe and photograph. There is a hike each day of about two to four miles. You only need a 400mm lens to make images like you see above. I’m only taking four shooters (one space available) this time and if you’d like to be one of them, I’d be honored to shoot with you. The price is $1950 which includes transportation once you arrive in Anchorage until you leave, instruction, guide, and entertainment.

If you can join me, please give Sharon a call 406 240 3503 (9-5MDT)
