Fine Art Paper
« on: May 18, 2013, 02:06:18 PM »

Hi

Do people print their landscapes on the usual photography paper or Fine Art paper.  If you use Fine Art paper what do you use?

Hahnemuhle? Canson?

Thanks
Martin

I agree with the previous 2 posters. I've used all the papers mentioned and they are all excellent paper. That said Canson Platine Fibre Rag is my absolute favorite. No OB's and it also costs less.

It depends on what you call a fine art paper. None of the previous three replies mention anything I would call a traditional fine art paper – they fall into the fibre/baryta category. They resemble/replicate fibre photo papers, not fine art papers. The only thing fine art about then is the fact that they are not RC papers.

If you want to find out about fine art photo papers, get the Canson Discorvery sample pack and the Hahnemühle Matte sample pack. If you are in the US, itSupplies has both for only $10 each (the deal ends very soon).

At this moment i am working with some of the Innova  fine art papers, and testing the others in their range. I do not know what you mean with "usual photography paper" , probably the RC-paper family. sort of in between the two you have the fibre or rag based papers, mostly baryta, which is also a range of very interesting papers.
It boils down to what effect you aim for when choosing a paper to print a particular image, and that is quite personal.
