General Photography Questions / Re: The best online portfolio
« Last post by Traeton Garl on March 06, 2017, 07:23:52 am »
HI Greggalfonso,

There are numerous types of portfolio hosting on the web and all of them have various features over each other, so making a choice is very difficult. I would start by looking at your work and trying to research what others in your genre seem to gravitate towards. Many of the portfolio services offer a free trial that would allow you to experiment and see what works best for you. One approach may be to take advantage of what you already have, but may not have been aware of. Your Adobe Creative Cloud account that you use for your photography classes also includes a creative portfolio social network called Behance as well as a way to design your own website and hosted utilizing a more recent feature called Adobe Portfolio. Again, this is included with your CC subscription and is designed to integrate with your Adobe workflow.

The link below will take you to a YouTube channel that includes a set of videos specific to our Ai Lighting Kit.  These include eventing from unboxing, setup and configuration.  There are also some videos that would pertain to more general topics such as setting up and taking down light modifiers such as umbrellas or softboxes.

Equipment / Re: Not sure if the printer is okay for the class

Hello blackrose805,

Unfortunately the printer you indicated here would not.  The requirements indicated the the Photography Department Database (http://fms12-010-dca.oditech.com/fmi/iwp/cgi?-db=PH_Equipment&-loadframes) require that the printer must have 6 or more colors (inks) and this one only has four.  Also the requirements also indicate the printer must have a strait-through paper path to accommodate thicker papers such as fine art papers and this one does not appear to have this capability.  This appears to be a multifunction office type of printer.  Although these printers can print some good looking photographic prints, the more limited ink sets pale in comparison to the more advanced printers with more inks and can produce professional results.  Also take a good look at the cost of ink cartridges and how many milliliters are actually in each cartridge.  Many students learn the saving some money in the initial cost can ultimately lead to a great deal in expense in ink cost to produce prints over time.  Many of the more advanced photographic printers generally also include much larger print cartridges with much more ink that reduces the printing costs significantly over time.
