I always thought it was very very important that you printed your own prints; for obvious reasons.
You can look at a picture and say:
It’s always your choice because it’s your picture; and the idea that somebody else takes your picture—they can be the best printer in the world—but not necessarily the best printer of your work."
Albert Watson (photographer)
I always think of this video when I hear designers arguing about whether they should learn to code so they can implement their own designs. I think it’s analogous to what Albert is saying here about creating prints from his pictures.
