Arguments for Bigger

Big prints are a better viewing experience than cell phones.

Big sensors render better mages than small sensors (depth of field control, detail and greater latitude of light).

Big light sources (like the sun or a seven foot umbrella) provide better light than small sources.

 

Conversely

Every image looks fabulous on your camera’s screen. Viewing them larger is always a reality check.

Large prints reveal both the beautiful evidence as well all as technical shortcomings and small distractions may no longer be small.

Sharp detail from larger sensors can be unforgiving in portraits. Less is sometimes more.

 

One photograph can tell a story.
