Sense of accomplishment

I bought a new printer . . . back in May . . . and I used it for the very first time . . . today.   Quite frankly once I pulled it (Canon’s Pixma Pro 100) out of the box, I was rather intimidated by the thing.  Silly… yeah probably.

I’m sure I probably mentioned this before,  I am no techy.  I knew it would take a good chunk of time (at least for me) to get my bearings and some trial and error.  I probably spent most of that time just trying to find the right word(s)/phrase to Google to find the answers to my questions.   With a little help from DP Review’s forum, where I finally found the right term … “Matching”… to look for in my printer dialogue and then select “None” and  Red River’s very well written how-to on my printer,  I am pretty dang proud of the fact that it only took 5 sheets of paper (free sample pack that came with the printer)  to get a Winner!  Tonight I now have a printed, matted, and framed photo of my … boys 🙂  Speaking of firsts, it is also the first-ever printed photo of Charlie (on left) … and just taken this morning.  It’s only taken me three years to get a photo worthy of printing that really captures Charlie (but that’s a story for another day).   Yes, most definitely a day of accomplishments!

Oh, and two thumbs-up for for Lightroom 5 and the Canon Pixma Pro-100!  Hmmm, maybe a review down the road.

Til next time,
