    11x14 is not a size of print that I have really considered, I might give it a go...

    16cmx16cm on 8"x10" from 6x6 negatives. Since my easel allow only 2cm on both sides.

    16cmx20cm from 35mm.

    I like 13 inches on the long side for all my portfolio prints

    Since I work using 8x10 and 4x5 these days I have two sizes of exhibition prints.

    18 inches long side

    28 inches long side

    I have been producing in this size and all my frames are suited to these sizes.



    I am now working on a series of prints that will be 48 inches on the long side, I am photographing very simple small objects in this wonderful light tent using an old Century Camera with a beautiful 480mm lens.
    I am about to turn my Durst 2000 on its side to get this magnification , I already have the sinks and trays . Vertically enlarging is too difficult
    with this large size as it means a lot of bending down to the floor and putting the paper in place.
    Horizontal printing is much more eloquent and it avoids the embarrassing plumbers backside if I have assistants in the room watching me .


    I thing the contradiction of small object to very large final image is quite beautiful to behold.


    For my medium format negatives and 35mm negatives I am planning to make pt pd or Colour gum over pd.

    these will be in the following sizes

    8 inches on the long side

    13 inches on the long side

    and if I get really ambitious 22inches on the long side.

    My 6x6 negs get printed to 5x5" or 6x6" on 8x10 paper. 10x10" on 11x14 paper and 14x14" on 16x20 paper.

    6x4.5 and 35mm gets printed to 5x7" or 5.25x7" or 6x8" on 8x10 paper. 9x12" on 11x14. And 13.5x18" on 16x20.

    The hardest part for me is deciding how big of a print I want from a negative!

    Almost every negative that I like and end up printing, I print, and them mount on an 11x14 board. I have 11x14 archival storage boxes, and the walls in my house and office have several 11x14 frames. I rotate prints through the frames. This means that most of these prints end up being on 8x10 paper, sometimes 11x14 paper, and cut down to a smaller size. Most of my negatives are 6x6 or 4x5 and I do not have any compulsion to print at the same aspect ratio as my negative - I almost always crop.

    Some negatives I print larger - and in those cases, it depends on the image. Some work better at 11x14. some on 16x20 paper, and sometimes 20x24. On those images, the exact image size, and the size of the mat that it is mounted on are determined by what I feel works best with that particular image.

    I prefer 5x7's for rectangular, 11x14's for special images. For my 6x6 images I like to print full-frame on 8x10 paper with a reasonable border on the sides.
    Something about a smaller photograph, it's more intimate. Also it's less expensive. And having a 5x7 large format camera helps, too.

    What the heck is general printing? I don't shoot any military portraits.

    The other sentence seems to imply aspect ratio, not size specifically. I use to prefer 4:5, but my tastes over the last few years have drifted more towards 3:5, depending on subject matter, for reasons discussed here. The beauty of working with the projected image under the enlarger is that one can make those artistic and aesthetic decisions with any suitable film format, if not purposefully at the time of exposure.

    If size is the issue, I find working with 16x20 sheets, utilizing its longest dimension in any suitable aspect ratio in 120 or LF, to be most pleasurable. Then again, it mostly depends on subject and composition. Some subjects are better treated small, while some scream to go as large as practicable.

    For 6x6 shots I use 12 x16 paper with an 0.5 inch border.
