Re: Printing

From my old darkroom days to the inkjet I use today, my belief is it all relates to the image you are printing and what it is for. In the wet darkroom I preferred un-ferrotyped Agfa Brovira Glossy. My "general" use preference now is Epson Luster. Just one of many opinions I'm sure.

Re: Printing

In class I got to play around with 4 papers:

Hahnamule Photo Luster
Hahnamule William Turner
Canon Pro Platinum
Epson Exhibition Fiber


The william turner is excellent for anything you would paint as a water color. Not so much for portraits. Its a heavily textured paper.

The Photo Luster from Hahanemule was excellent for BW prints It really has a nice white.

Pro Platinum is a super high glossy print that has really nicely saturated colors. If you like glossy its an awesome choice.

The exhibition fiber is a luster quality print that was fun to work with but I prefer the Hahnemule.

The real key though to quality print making though is ensuring you paper is profiled for you printer. Its makes a huge difference even over the canned profiles you can download from most manufacturer sites.

How True...

I find myself using 3 major brand papers. Epson, Hahnamule, Canson, different surfaces. Epson Exhibition Fiber appears to be very close to the feel and look of un-ferrotyped Agfa Brovira which I always liked for wet darkroom B&W printing and the color is looks good (non-gloss with a sheen). I should make a print from one of my old B&W negs scanned and see how it compares to a darkroom print from the past. Just seems to be to many things to do and so little time...

Still the general use paper I go to is Epson Ultra Premium Photo Luster, it has a slight texture, rich color and dries fast. My printer is an Epson R3000.

Re: Printing

I think it depends on the image and what you're planning to do with the print. Personally I like matte but I find that at work as a wedding photographer, clients prefer glossy and that works better to casually show off examples during meetings.
