I have seen so many articles about why professional prints are so good and comparison photos, and honestly I know when I see my own prints from my professional printer I am always so proud of my work, but maybe naively I always think my own great camera is the main reason they look so good. Then I started teaching classes and kept telling my students why professional prints were better, but didn't have my own proof, so I shelled out the money and had one of the photos I took of a newborn printed, profesionally , then also at CVS, Walmart, Costco, and Walgreens. The evidence below I believe tells you so much., the white changed in every photo, the babies true color changed, and in some she was almost green and in other red as a tomato.I tried to be honest as possible so I scanned each print at 3200 dpi. Also the ONLY place that asked for a print release was Walmart! I have also put the full images below the comparison so you can get a closer look.
