I am looking for alternative versions of the description for ultimate black and white print quality.
To put the criteria of ultimate black and white print qualities in to words is a difficult task.
Here are a few that I have extracted out of my library.
B&W Printing, Creating the digital master print – George de Wolfe – 2009 The master print displays a certain luminosity – prints that have an inner glow and presence.
The Print – Ansel Adams 1982 – The fine print is an expressive object of beauty, excellence and satisfaction. Assumed to have a full range of tones, clear delineation of tones and textures. It would be a catastrophe if all prints only met these criteria.
Silver Footprint – Robin Bell 2009 – British Fine Art Silver Printer see www.robinbell.com
A fine art Silver Print has a special quality which embodies a rich, tactile, atmospheric and sumptuous feeling.
John Blakemore’s Black and white Photography Workshop 2005 – The classic traditional fine print has a full range of tones and textures from white to black. The print will have a sense of brilliance that emanates from the print its self.
If you have come across any other descriptions of ultimate black and white print quality I would like you to share it with me please.
I am struggling with sRGB color space used on all websites. I am now lightening and reducing my pictures in contrast to show detail that I can very easily print on paper. Having been a darkroom printer then I transferred to digital but for the first five years only made prints without the need to post on the web.
Detail is completely lost in the shadows next to the jetty.
A big hello to all the new followers of my little blog this week.
