Today I made some tests prints on Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk (a fancy name indeed) and I was very impressed with the results. Yesterday I tested out Fabriano Digital Art papers and loved the very smooth and very dull Matt quality of the images.
A few days ago I went into my darkroom and printed up some 20x16 multigrade prints with warm tone developer. Before that I printed out on Hahnemuhle Fine art Pearl some A2 prints as tests also.
This is part the life of the photographer, choosing the right camera and film or digital equipment and afterwards finding the best paper or developer or look for a project.
The questions about which prints,framing,right portfolios, and best scans all add up to what seem like hundreds of choices that have to be made.
Then the choice of project, choice of approach, where to publish, its goes on..
