    Hi Mark,

    Can you clarify "good photographic shop to help develop my prints". Are you shooting on film and need someone to develop the film for you, or are you asking about printing services?

    Because printing and developing are two different things.
    "It is one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it is another thing to make a portrait of who they are" - Paul Caponigro

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    And you've found a good place to ask advice about how good your photos look before you send them photos of for printing.

    Ok. so next question? Do you want something close to where you live that you can go to the business and talk to the people, or are you happy to use an online service elsewhere in Australia?

    Of the two options above, I’d advise local as this allows you to talk more easily, rework based off a smaller trial image, go in and experiment with paper types (different ones can work with different images) and generally learn a lot about printing to get the best out. If you’re not really looking to up you’re printing game and quality isn’t of utmost importance (you’re not entering a national comp for example), then online may be fine.

    I use www.photoenlargements.com.au online printing. The only time I get images printed is to show, so I need decent quality printing. Photoenlargements have changed owners recently, and I miss the old owner, who was always available for help and advice. They have now changed printing machines, and offer a larger range of sizes, including ones suitable for panorama. The new printer produces more vibrant colours, but I suspect the prints will not last as long as the old traditional prints.

    Online printing does not mean poorer quality printing. In fact where I live, it is the opposite. I have to use online printing because there are no other serious options where around here. I don't consider Woolworths or Harvey Norman serious options

    There should be good print labs in Canberra. The Canberra Photographic Society people should be able to put you on to some of them. There are also other camera clubs in Canberra.
