This listing is for any image you would like for me to print from any series except the Noblex and Horizon panoramas.
For 5x7s I use 2 different types of paper that have very different surfaces:
* Ilford Multigrade Fiber gloss surface is the standard paper I print with. It's a smooth, glossy surface that shows deep blacks and crisp detail. It has a neutral tone.
* Ilford Art 300 is a beautiful, textured, heavy-weight, 100% cotton rag paper with a warm tone. The surface has an eggshell sheen and is so textured that the print takes on light as you turn it, catching the surface ridges in a way that makes it luminous. This paper, while gorgeous, does not show detail as crisply as the standard fiber paper I described above.
I print in a traditional wet darkroom so each print is hand printed. I print in small batches so each printing yields a slightly different print since I'm not a machine! Every time I print a new batch I number those prints according to the print date.
After the prints dry, I press them in my heat press, look over them under a magnifyer, and use a touch up ink (Spot Tone/Marshall's spotter) to clean up any dust spots caused by dust that was on the negative when I printed. I title, date, and sign the back of prints in pencil.
