I’m telling the truth, friends…TWO PRINTS. And you know what’s even better? One of them is a pigment print on Hahnemühle photo rag paper while the other is a c-type print on Fuji Crystal Archive Pearl Paper. So we’re going to look at how these bad boys compare. Two different printing technologies, two different papers, one 6×17 negative on Kodak Portra 160 film. Let’s dive into it.

Making a Fine Art Photography Print: Desert Train Hopper

VIDEO DESCRIPTION:
Here’s another one of them “Making a Fine Art Photography Print” videos I like to do. But you know what I don’t like? The term “fine art.” Lemme grab my ascot and pipe because I be getting all sorts of pretentious dropping “fine art” to describe my own work. “Oh, this photo I took? Yes, it’s art…FINE art.” Bleh. Yuck. But what am I supposed to do, call it “average art”? You can see the dilemma I’m in here.

Whatever you want to call it, I love making framed prints. It’s the best. I don’t get a chance to do it very often, so when I do get the chance, you bet your ass I’m going to make a video about it. And this one’s extra fantastic because I actually made TWO fine art prints this time. Huh? What? No, can’t be. TWO? That’s more than any one photographer can handle. It’s impossible.
