The biggest you've ever printed

Nick Carver is a strange case.

He's been blessed by YT's algorithms to be on the larger side of YT creators, but IMHO, he's definitely not treating so well his large audience, given the exposure he gets, and the quality of content he's putting on.

That said, that particular video below was awesome to watch and one of his best videos:

It got me thinking, I never did a print so big in my life, and don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to.

It's one thing if you think printing large is pointless.

It's another entirely different if you think it's awesome, but never did it for A or B reasons.

I'll tell you it's not cheap, not for me anyway. If I have to starve to make a massive print, I think I'd prefer to eat.

Money aside, I'm also too lazy to go through all the effort, after all we're talking about a craftsmanship that requires quality and precision.

One thing off (the printing, paper, frame, materials, durability) and the whole print becomes an expensive mistake staring back at you.

So for A or B reasons, I never did it and it's more likely it will stay that way.

My biggest prints ever were 36 x 24 inches, 13 years ago from D700 and D200 files, for display in a temporary gallery.

Loved every bit of it, and now that I have better cameras, never printed so big again. Bummer...

What about you?

Did you ever print something so special, so massive you couldn't take your eyes off?

If you did, what was the feeling?

I don't mean big prints. I mean BIIIIIIIIIG

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Best regards.
