Metal Photo Prints
This photo is probably a terrible representation of what I’m trying to explain.
Anyway, I made this “metallic metal” print the other day and I am really stoked about it, so I wanted to tell all the other photographers out there how awesome these are.
Above we have the exact same file printed on wet lab paper on the left and a sheet of metal on the right. I went with the “metallic” finish, which means there is no white base coat on the metal so all the *metallic-ness?* of the sheet is visible through the photo. In real life the metal print has much more dynamic range, mostly shadow detail, and the texture/mid tone contrast is way punchier. And then there is some undescribable aesthetic about the metal that just makes the print look more interesting than paper.
Anyway, I highly recommend trying out some metal prints, I think they are A+.
