They ran a special last fall and I ordered a 30x40 for something like $65. They only print at 150 dpi so my expectations weren't high. It looks fine from a distance but the quality isn't that of Miller's or Bay Photo who print at 250 dpi.

Thanks....I will just use them for displays and for bargain hunters. I appreciate the input.

I hope no one takes offense at this question....but if the quality is below your normal print standard, why would you want to use it for a display? Or a Bargain Hunter?
I would think that I would want my displays to be as good as what I can deliver in the final print. I have had clients tell me that they passed by a mall display of another photographer and thought the work looked good, but the prints looks very "digital" like something they could print. So then they came to me instead. Just a thought.

I was thinking the same thing!

No offense taken and great points...especially concerning the bargain hunters. Guess you need a little more inside info about the displays....since I posted this question about the company and the quality, I ordered an 8x10, 11x14 and a 16x24. The 11x14 is of the same canvas wrap I have hanging on my wall of my daughter printed by WHCC. Side by side, I can not tell the difference....but obviously other photogs can. As critical as I am, I do not think a normal consumer would be able to tell the difference or sit there within inches to critic it. When set up in a bridal show behind tables on a wall, I believe the quality will be plenty to show off my work. With that said, without a history of quality products, I wouldn't send them out to the client to test the trials of time. So I will use for shows but not for customer products...not yet anyway. Time and company reviews will tell.

I'm barely 100 pages thru this, and this has to be the greatest compilation of portrait/ senior work.

As soon as it gets above -3,, i have a senior that wants winter photos. But to be frank,, its just been to dam cold to go out and shoot. But when i was in California for the past 4 weeks, I took out my old rebel and shot this of my son racing at his favorite motocross track

QUOTED IMAGE

The shot above (Nice shot by the way) reminded me of a senior we did this past fall who is into Motocross. Golden hour + dust equals this SOC:

Which equal's this with a little editing:

Which equal's this for a story board:

Always enjoy do this type of senior session. I don't care much for the lighting in the portraits...but I was by myself (got there 30 mins after the mom called and said when wanted one more session) so had to light using a speed light on the shoe, and it was too hot. :-(
