What is your light source for illuminating the print? Is it a high CRI source with a temperature corresponding to that in the paper/printer/driver ICC profile?

The white borders and white keyboard details look yellow compared to the whites on the monitor suggesting your print illumination temperature is too low.

Canon TR8520 is still printing green after all the suggestions. 3 deep cleans, changed all inks, downloaded drivers, cleaned rollers and still green. I think it is time for a new printer. I seem to be running out of options and hints. Need more suggestions.

Did you do a nozzle check?

We got very lucky in Albuquerque. Here's a few I took out the back porch:

I've been using Silicon Dust <> HDHomerun tuners for about 13 years now. Attach a TV antenna and an ethernet cable to the tuner unit and control it from your computer to store files on your hard drive. You can then view the files on your computer. I also set my computer up to be a DLNA server which allows me to view the video files on my smart TV.

I currently run two HDHomerun units, each with dual tuners so I can record 4 channels simultaneously.

I remain quite happy with GIMP for the things you need to do.

I've almost always used B+W clear filters for lens protection in the past, but recently tried the Blue Armor Pro X UV 1.1 filter sold by Blue Frog Filters out of curiosity. It is supposedly up to 5 times stronger than conventional filters, and does appear to have high quality glass and coatings as well as a non-aluminum frame ("strong copper alloy"). I bought the same size you'll need, 67mm, for $60.50 so I saved a little money. I have not yet found anything bad to say about it compared to the B+W filters I'm used to.

BTW, if you have a protective filter on your lens, you can always take it off for important shots if you feel the need, while having coating protection against fingerprint oils and light brushes and scrapes the rest of the time.

That's a great idea for control simplification. In fact I seriously think Canon ought to try releasing a camera model with no exposure or EC dials that only runs in Fv mode. There's really no need for other (P-A-S-M) exposure modes. Kudos to Canon. I wish Nikon would do it.

It reminds me of similar cleverness of panasonic bridge cameras that did something similar using one push-click-dial where you push the dial to select the next option and turn the dial to adjust the option. Very intuitive and can be quite quick.

Yes, thanks.

And all nozzles are firing? If so, then are you using a good profile for that ink/paper combination?

As pointed out earlier, 'auto' mode on your d7200 was using auto2 WB, so it shouldn't be surprising that when you used auto1 WB with Program exposure mode, there'd be a color difference. When you used auto2 WB with 'P' mode, you got something very close to what auto mode gave you -- but since you framed the shots differently, it shouldn't surprise you here either that they were close but not exactly the same colors since the WB algorithms were evaluating different scenes.

'Auto' mode likely also has control over the 'Picture Control' which could have even more effect than White Balance in color.

I have a little different take than the answers before this. I want the perspective first, which means distance from the subject. I think the "canonical" answer for distance is 10-12 feet. Then choose the focal length that allows the type of framing you want. Start with the "canonical" distance, and vary from that for specific purposes. As an example, there are many that feel like getting closer gives a more intimate perspective. Peter Hurley, of NY headshot fame, usually prefers, IIRC, a distance of about 6 feet.

P-mode with Program shift combined with AE-Lock?

... or, if it looked like that only for a that series of pics, is it possible the lens was removed and water droplets go on the sensor?

That is really interesting. You can clearly see that there are also regular dust spots that look like you'd expect. I'm going to hazard a guess that the funny looking artifacts come from some kind of "optical" droplet like resin that has landed on the sensor. Can you remove the lens and examine the sensor surface with a magnifier?
