Yesterday I listed a few 8x10 photo prints in the shop. These three are printed on metallic paper - let me tell you, that stuff is amazing. When you have the right photo printed on that paper, it just pops.
The colors are beautifully saturated; it looks as 3D as it can get without actually being 3D.
I can't tell you how hard it was to pick the pictures I had printed. In the end, I just went for my favorites. Like this one. It's entirely possible that no one else will love it the way I do.
But if that's the case, I'm just going to hang it on the wall and continue to love it. So it's a win-win.
I got a few black and white photos in the metallic paper too and some in "true b&w" paper. For this one, I love it on the metallic.
The grays are silver and the blacks are deep and rich. I could eat this photo with a silver spoon. It's not very often that I express that I love my own photos. Like most anyone else, sometimes I know that they're pretty good and sometimes I just hope that they are. But you can be sure that I won't list any photos that I don't think look absolutely great printed up.
I have 10 or 11 to list total and my goal is to get three more up every day until they're all listed, so if you're interested keep checking back.
And speaking of black and whites, I'll be posting my favorite b&w photo that I've taken in July on August 1st. Please join me by leaving a comment to a link of your favorite b&w that you've taken on that post. And as always, you can post your b&w pictures to the flickr group all month long. Thanks!
