Nowhere is this more important than when selecting a background for studio photography, even if your studio, like mine, is a temporary basement setup.

“To err is human—and to blame it on a computer is even more so.”—Robert Orben

Wi-Fi and printing are two words I never expected to use together in a sentence, but after working with Epson’s (www.epson.com) Artisan 700 All-in-One I can’t imagine it any other way. For openers, the Artisan 700 is compact...
