More Images

I realized that I needed to submit more of my work but I can't do it fast enough with just 3 sets of slides with an organization/gallery or 2 wanting to hold a set. I looked into getting more dupes and found out that it would cost me a couple hundred dollars. I looked into other alternatives and found out that most places accept quality digital prints. While trying to print out some work, my printer died and I ran into other various computer problems in the process. I spent an entire evening screwing around with my printer and finally gave up. I even took the damn thing apart and made it worse, of course.

Kinkos was my next option and when I brought my custom color prints in, they wouldn't copy them because the photo paper has printed all over the back "Do not duplicate. Copyrighted material." I got in a little heated argument with a Kinko's guy telling him that I have the negatives and that I also have a website that contains my name and the same photographs that I had in my hand. That apparently wasn't good enough and I left the place in complete frustration. I COULDN'T MAKE COPIES OF MY OWN PHOTOS THAT I TOOK MYSELF!! I totally understand copyright infringement and he was doing his job, but damnit...I had no clue that my prints had those words all over the back.

Anyways, I decided to get my images printed from a computer file and I think that is working out.
