interested in hearing what type of paper/brand you guys prefer for matte prints, and what you prefer for glossy (anything at all glossy)
also interested in hearing if anyone generally prefers one over the other (matte vs glossy)
Current favorite matte paper: Epson Velvet Fine Art
Current favorite glossy paper: Pictorico Hi-Gloss White Film
Matte v. Glossy: my current work involves very high-contrast B&W images. I need high d-max to make them work so I'm mostly printing on glossy.
I view papers and inks as tools, and I'm using the ones that I feel are best for the job at hand. Ask me next month (when I'm working on something else), and you'll probably get different answers .
