High-end digital cameras can be as high as 12-Megapixels. One Megapixel equals one million individual pixels. For example, a 12-Megapixel camera may have a resolution that is 4288 pixels wide x 2848 pixels high. The ideal resolution for file size when printing a large format fine art photograph is 300 DPI (dots per inch.) However, a resolution of 100 DPI, for viewing at a distance greater than 10 feet, or 150 DPI for closer viewing is adequate. You never want to go below 100 DPI and above 300 DPI is generally wasted effort. Therefore to keep within a 100-300 DPI guideline, the maximum size we can output a print while minimizing distortion is 42.88″ wide (4288 pixels wide divided by 100). The larger the original photograph and the more pixel data acquire with a good camera the more wiggle room you have on these equations.

Although the goal is to use the best possible source photograph we understand that may not always be available. Therefore to best assist our customers SpeedPro uses special software to smooth out the “jaggies” of less than optimal files that contain less pixel data. Our software has proprietary algorithms to create better enlargements than even Photoshop, as long as there is sufficient pixel data. We will not guarantee a miracle, but we will endeavor to make a significant improvement.

If asked, professional photographers will always tell you that lighting is fundamental to good photography. When you go on your photo shoot you will want to make sure that the lighting is set up properly to ensure the final product is optimal. Depending on your subject matter instead of relying on natural light we recommend you bring in professional photo-shoots lighting, many good options can be rented if you have not budgeted purchasing the equipment.

A common mistake when dealing with lighting is glare, you see this in photos taken on the red carpet at events and paparazzi have too many flash photos being taken at the same time creating uneven lighting with harsh shadows. Always be aware of the lighting sources for your photo so that the lighting will be consistent, and the quality of photographs will not suffer.

No matter what you intend to use your photographs for, it is important to stay on brand. Consistent photography style is like a signature that helps your audience recognize your unique vision in the subjects you choose and the angles and lighting you use to capture your image. Be proud and use that style across your fine art prints to further an unmistakable brand.

The above are some of the most basic things to consider when choosing your photography options. Professional photography is a career in itself which is why the highest quality photos come from those who have dedicated themselves to pursuing that field. Occasionally, a beginner can chance into a wonderful photo opportunity and capture a moment, but it takes a trained eye that is always on the lookout and prepared with tools at the ready to consistently deliver the highest quality images. 

Another factor that should be considered when going out to take fine art photos is the weather. Your lighting will always be tied to natural forces when taking photos outside, so check the weather report so you don’t unnecessarily waste effort waiting for the sun to appear. 

Always remember to be creative. Tap into the reserves of imagination within yourself to bring forward a unique image that sends the message you intend. Always consider the colors and the mood of a piece when framing a photograph shot in your mind’s eye. Vibrant colors affect our emotions and create aesthetically pleasing images. 

And finally, take as many photos as you can bear. The more you take, the more likely you are to find a diamond in the rough. Our SpeedPro professionals will be happy to work with you and give advice in choosing the best suited image for your fine art print.
