Print Sharpening Class Testimonials
Got my metal print sample back today and it is gorgeous!! Perfectly sharp! Even my husband was impressed and he is very blah about all of my photography stuff.
Damien — thank you, thank you, thank you for your amazing print sharpening class!! I just got this beautiful 20x30 print, and I’m blown away by how freaking amazing it looks.
I have to say that I just picked up my test prints and love them! I also printed an unsharpened picture for each one to compare with the sharpened ones and that’s the best thing ever! How could I have been printing without sharpening before??? The unsharpened ones just look bad now…..Thanks Damien.
It will change your life. You won’t believe how much better your prints can be. Nothing I have ever printed before taking the class is now good enough. I’m amazed I got away with delivering prints that were okay – I thought they were good but now I can see they were just like most other photographers were offering – a compromise. Now I know that my prints are amazing.
The Print Sharpening class is SO worth it! I read about the class, hesitated for a second as I haven’t been a high volume printer of things in the past, then went for it. Let’s be honest, it’s very affordable. I cannot recommend it enough. I have ordered a couple of canvases and a variety of prints recently and I’m just blown away by the results, especially of my most recent canvas. The difference between what I thought was good enough in the past to what I know the results can be now… No comparison. I was in a rush, scrambling to purchase gifts for family, and ordered a few sets of gift prints and did NOT sharpen them. It was the last time that will happen! So, outside of turning me into a believer, seeing my work in print at its highest potential has really pushed me to start selling prints and products. I have a VERY good reason now for wanting my clients to order through me. My product samples came in tonight and I am SO thrilled and excited to share them with clients. If you’ve been considering this class, no more hesitating! Go for it!
This class changed my whole world when it comes to printing. Definitely worth the investment!
It looks absolutely AMAZING!!!!! Words cannot express how grateful I am for your help in making my photos look the very best they can! Thank you SO very much!
Damien Symonds, I have to tell you, after taking your classes, you make me ANGRY!!! I want to go back and re-edit every photo I did previously and REORDER every print I ever had made!!!! Your classes need to come with a WARNING- YOU WILL WANT TO REDO YOUR ENTIRE PORTFOLIO AFTER TAKING MY CLASSES!!!
Thank you for sharing your sharpening wisdom! My prints have never looked so good, and it makes me feel great about offering my clients amazing products that they can not print themselves!
Damien I just have to gush for a moment. I’ve taken all of your classes now and am so appreciative of what I learned. I feel like I was floundering as a wanna-be professional and over the past year or so have finally found my voice as a photographer. No more paid for actions and stumbling around in my editing. I still have so much to learn I know but I have grown leaps and bounds and give you so much of the credit. Thank you! I just received an enormous 30x40 metal print of my daughter to hang in my living room and cried when I opened it. It is sharpened to perfection thanks to your print sharpening class. I’m seriously waiting to feel the slight breeze that is blowing in her hair it looks so life-like. I refer other photographers to your classes on a weekly basis. They are crazy if they don’t sign up. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Ok, Damien, you’ve sold me. I was reaaaaaaaaally skeptical of your methods after I had to add a ridiculous amount of luminance to some photos in order to eradicate every single speck of noise before sharpening. They looked SO hideous and soft and mushy on screen I just couldn’t imagine that they were going to print well at all. But I stuck to your numbers and sharpened them and put in my order. I just received them today and they. look. INCREDIBLE. The skin texture that looked like plastic on screen is perfect after the slight sharpening noise and the very subtle texture of the print. And even after adding up to +70 luminance to some of them they are actually sharper and more detailed than previous photos I had printed unsharpened. I’m blown away. I’ve been staring at these for like 10 minutes because they’re just so stunning.
I received my 11X14 Metal print …. It looks GREAT hanging on my wall!!!
Thanks D! Loved the class, feeling empowered to make great prints. Can’t believe the difference between my sharpened test prints and the unsharpened ones I had printed at the same time. Mind blown.
Damien – I just got my prints yesterday after I ran your numbers on them, they sat in a corner all night because I was so nervous to open them, I opened them this morning and the tears poured down my face, they are absolutely stunning. i am so proud of them. Thank you so much.
Super happy client with her beautiful 20x30 canvas. It will be the first thing people see when they come into the house. She was amazed because her other photographers canvases are fuzzy, and lack any depth. THANKS SO MUCH! This class has helped me a ton!
Thank you for being awesome and for taking the time to teach us something that took you years to learn and perfect. Printing my photographs was something I never did simply because I KNEW i did not know how to prepare them FOR print. NOW I DO! And I can feel confident that I am providing quality printed photographs to my clients. THANK YOU.
Damien, THANK YOU for the amazing print sharpening advice. The print came in yesterday and they are GORGEOUS.
Damien, I just want to thank you. I signed up for your class and have taken my time going through it. I entered a couple of photos in a local art show. I won runner up for the photography category. I think I won, because the sharpening made my peacock look almost like a painting. Sharpening the proper way made such a difference in the quality of my photo. Thank you.
Damien used to offer free print sharpening advice – free??? Why not! So I had him offer some advice on a few of my prints and canvases. The results were phenomenal compared to the prints I had previously submitted and soon I was hooked. Seriously hooked! I knew what my prints should look like and couldn’t go back. I was super excited to learn he was offering a course! It didn’t take long to learn as Damien has really explained everything and has it all worked out to a Science (literally) and now I have complete confidence that my prints on different mediums will turn out equally as sharp and beautiful. Damien is still there to guide us along the way and is adding information and actions and other tools to make it so we can sharpen our own images to our own preferences. This is definitely worth the time and money!!!
Holy Hannah! I just got in seven 16x20 canvases, all sharpened using what I learned in the sharpening class, and they are phenomenal! Thanks Damien!
I printed a 16x20 recently. I can’t even explain how stunning it turned out. When my client opened her delivery her first word was, “WOW!” Noise elimination, perfect sharpening and raw processing equaled print perfection.
I’m blown away with how much I’ve learned. I can’t believe I was producing prints for people with such a lack of knowledge. I’ve always been uncomfortable with sharpening for print and I wished I had someone to teach me to do it properly… MY WISH CAME TRUE! If you find yourself questioning your ability (which if you haven’t taken this class I am pretty confident you aren’t doing it correctly) you need to take this class. Its worth every single penny! Thanks Damien for sharing your knowledge.
If you haven’t taken The Print Sharpening Class do it now, don’t wait! I got my first canvas back today and I’m blown away by how much sharper it is compared to not sharpened!
I just got my 30x40 canvas in today…it’s perfect! Can’t wait to get it hung in the studio! Thank you so much Damien.
Thank you Damien for your wonderful classes. I have the confidence now to print my photos and to promote my Pet Photography division of my pet supply store by printing large photos. All will be displayed in my store using it as a gallery to promote my work.
Before your classes, my photos were just on computer and not printed. Thank you for your FAB classes which if taught me that with clean edits and proper sharpening there is no reason not to print these babies! Photos are meant to be printed!
Damien, THANK YOU so much!!! The canvases turned out AWESOME!!! I am so so happy! They look PERFECT on the wall.
Got my prints. They look AWESOME! Thank you very much, Damien!
I can’t believe the difference between what I thought was sharp and what is now sharp. My editing world has been rocked again. Thanks Damien!
If you even a little bit hesitant about taking the sharpening class, don’t be. I am useless at maths, and I managed to make this amazing print and have subsequently ordered very large canvases and prints (24x36inches) for clients with confidence. Worth every cent.
I just got my test prints back and holy moly, I have seen the light! Thank you!!
