I was a bit stunned, when a fellow photographer told me, that he prints his work in sRGB on a Epson 9xxx latest model, and recommended that i do the same on the HP Z3100. The boss asked me, well why don't we print in sRGB.
Ok, why not? I am a bit lost for words, because it goes against the grain of what i have learn over the years about printing and color management. Maybe someone here can help me make my point a bit more fluently then I am able to.
So I was wondering if anyone can direct me in right direction, link me to some web site which clarifies why it is not a good option to print in sRGB, when printing portraits and fine art prints.
What I came up with initially was that it was a much smaller color space and therefore it would clip the more saturated colors and anything that is outside the sRGB colorspace compared to the AdobeRGB color space that we edit work in.
I guess, one workflow where one could use sRGB, would be if you always nailed your exposures, shot JPEG and always printed to the same printer (small gamut printer)
I might be wrong, but i thought that both the Epson and HP's latest line of printers have larger gamuts then sRGB, but smaller then AdobeRGB
can someone please help me set this straight, thanks
PS: Better yet, if I can demonstrate why, such as printing an image that indicates that this is why we don't print in sRGB.
I am pretty sure I was told this in a workshop, but just can't find the notes and have never bothered with it as I wasn't printing in sRGB
