Today many photographs with fine cameras, but what do most with pictures? Well they end up in the computer and displayed on the monitor or flat-screen TV set. Maybe buying a printer for a thousand swedish kronor. That would be OK if you have a camera for SEK 15.000, or… What a waste, then it's OK with a small pocket camera or your smart-phone. If you have a good compact or - SLR the pictures should be printed, preferably in large format! Good pictures looks best printed on fine paper.
Photography is an illusionistic art, capturing reflections of reality and to get it on paper to create a mood and a feeling.
You can never compare a photo on a backlit display with a printed photo. If you want your photographic works to make an impression, they should be printed. Large prints from a good printer at a good paper makes an impression. A printed photo can be hung anywhere on the wall. You can have multiple images side by side. But the most important thing is that the picture makes a completely different impression. If you choose a nice matte paper that Canson Rag Photographique you get an unbeatable results. Velvety deep blacks, colors that are true to life and everything without reflections.
