What do you print your flower pictures on; Matte, Satin or Glossy? Framing.

    I didn't want this to be a color or b&w post, so I listed it here.

    I wanted to find your preferences on papers used for flower pics. I am looking to produce a series of framed pictures for sale. Although most will be in color, I find that b&w can produce a very beautiful picture as well. The choice comes down to the papers. All color work will be lab printed; At least 50% of the b&w stuff will be lab done as well. I plan on framing 3, 4 and 5 pictures together in a plain black frames with mattes. Your recomendations on papers will be appreciated and will help me narrow down my investigations.

    I have used the 'old' Oriental Seagull with success - it tones well. I do not like to use glossy paper for this subject and prefer something like a lustre. Agfa Multicontrast Classic is nice, it tones well too.

    It really depends on the flower. Really like my flower stuff done on ilfochrome or kodak matt paper. It depends on the feel I want.
