It’s not a photograph until it’s printed.
I am not entirely in agreement with this idea, I am printing more of my photos and hanging them in my home and office. I derive a great deal of pleasure when I look up and see reminders of places I have been and the reminder of how the photograph was created.
Several years ago, I attended a seminar the subject of which was presenting a printed portfolio of your work. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of the presenter, but he did have some interesting ideas. Some of these I have adopted and expanded.
His approach was to ditch the photo album. Instead present your collection loose, in a box. His thought was it gives your audience the freedom to arrange your photos as they see fit. If you are sharing with a group, everyone gets a chance to review the prints individually.
He also printed some information on the back of each print, an idea I have expanded upon.
My Print Portfolio.
I am using Hahnemuhle FineArt InkJet Photo Cards to present my work.
The photograph is printed on the good side of the cards. Information about the photograph is printed on the reverse side.
I am using Hahnemuhle’s FineArt Pearl paper. The results, to my eye, are awesome.
