There are many variables that affect our photography; lenses, filters, camera resolution, etc. And there are generally three ultimate “destinations” for your images:
*Print for display
*Printed in brochure/magazine/etc.
*Viewed on the computer.
We discuss the camera variables regularly, but I’m interested in the paper you print on.
I’m curious, which is your favorite paper?
Currently mine is Hahnemuhle Matte FineArt Photo Rag for serious fine-art stuff, Red River 68lb Ultra Satin Pro for everything else.
I like these because:
Ultra Satin Pro is priced well, works well in my printer, dries fast and looks good for “everyday” use. This seems to be consistently good paper.
The Hahnemuhle is truly great fine art paper – expensive, but worth it. Best highlight and shadow detail I’ve seen since I closed the chemical darkroom... good stuff.
