  • ILFORD Master Seth Resnick on the Photographic Print

    ILFORD Master Seth Resnick‘s latest body of work is now on exhibit at the annual Art Basel in Miami, Florida.  Art Basel stages the world’s premier Modern and contemporary art shows, held annually in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. Founded by gallerists in 1970, Art Basel has been a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in the nurturing of artists, and the development and promotion of visual arts. A new exhibit of recent work by Seth Resnick called “160,000 Miles of Color” will opened at Gallery 2014 in Hollywood, Florida on December 17, 2013 and continues through January 19, 2014. All prints in this exhibition were printed on ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Cotton Smooth specifically for this new exhibit.

    Here’s what ILFORD Master Seth Resnick has to say about printing photographic images.

    Seth has made his mark in the world of contemporary photography with a prolific career spanning education, fine art, editorial, stock and commercial work, as well his entrepreneurial contributions in training thousands of photographers in digital workflow methods through the D-65 process.  Chosen by Photo District News as one of the 30 most influential photographers of the decade, Seth is greatly in demand for his beautiful graphic images.  Published in many of the world’s most prestigious magazines, his credits include over 2500 publications worldwide and his clients constitute a virtual “Who’s Who” list of Corporate America.

    His latest body of work on exhibit now at Gallery 2014 in Hollywood, Florida is called “160,000 Miles of Color.” It captures the haunting and beautiful landscapes of places that stretch our imagination beyond the everyday images we are bomdarded with in our digital world. The exhibit is up through January 19, 2014. Be sure to see it if you are in the Miami area.

Find out how you can join Seth and partner John Paul Caponigro for expeditions and workshops through Digital Photo Destinations, an organization that combines exotic world travel with photographic education.”My visual philosophy is to produce images nobody else envisions,” says Seth.  “Ideally, someone standing next to me won’t see what I see.  I try to bring back those unseen images from my own mind’s eye.  I am stimulated by color, design, light, texture, spontaneity and gesture.”

    VIDEO: Celebrating Gregory Heisler’s New Book – 50 Portraits

     VIDEO: Celebrating Gregory Heislers New Book   50 Portraits We are delighted to share with you a full-length video of a lecture held in February, 2013 in NYC by renowned photographer, educator and ILFORD MASTER Gregory Heisler. Greg joined us for a special one-day exhibition of forty-three large prints from his new book, “50 Portraits: Stories and Techniques from a Photographer’s Photographer.”

    The book is a rich tapestry of photographs and the stories behind them. That is certainly fitting coming from one of the best visual storytellers of his age. But as you will experience in the lecture video and the book, Gregory is also focused on the human connection between photographer and subject, and how to choose the best scene and lighting to draw out that story. All on deadline, I might add.

    During this exhibition earlier this year, Greg remarked that he had never seen his images printed so large. Curious, we asked at what size he normally saw them. He replied simply with his hands, “About this size – a TIME Magazine cover.” With delight, he walked from one print to the next, telling stories much like the ones you will hear in the video below.

    Please enjoy the below video – we are overjoyed to be able to share this with you! If you are moved, we encourage you to support Gregory’s talents by purchasing his book at your local photo retailer, bookstore or online.

    And here is a video from our event with Gregory in February:

    For our one-day exhibition, Gregory printed on GALERIE Prestige Gold Cotton Textured and GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Silk.

    Myer Bornstein and ILFORD GALERIE Prestige

    MBornstein 550x550 Myer Bornstein and ILFORD GALERIE PrestigeWe recently became acquainted with Myer Bornstein of Photo Bee 1 blog when he reviewed ILFORD GALERIE Prestige papers recently. Myer has been involved in photography for many years and studied photography at the New York Institute of Photography. He is now retired and photographs the natural beauty of Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island and other locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Costa Rica. He also publishes a blog about nature and natural history that includes book and equipment reviews.

    Myer was kind enough to give us an interview to help us learn more about this photographer and nature enthusiast.

    PrestigeSmoothPearl1 Myer Bornstein and ILFORD GALERIE PrestigeILFORD blog: Tell us how you feel about photographs printed on paper vs. viewing images by electronic means like computer monitors and tablets.

    Myer Bornstein:   I like to have photographic prints because they can be displayed on walls to help decorate a room or displayed in a gallery.  I also like utilizing prints for teaching purposes. As a volunteer at a local Audubon sanctuary, Allens Pond in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, I use prints to illustrate wildlife that can be found at the sanctuary.  I use my iPad and I have prints in a portfolio as well.

    Ib: How long have you been photographing?

    MB: I have been photographing since I was a teenager. Thirty years ago I was very active and photographing and exhibiting at wildlife fairs.  Then I took time off to get a Master’s degree and have restarted active photography in the last five years.

    Ib: How long have you been making your own prints?

    MB: Back in my film days, I made my own black and white prints and had my own darkroom. And I developed my own Ektachrome slides. For my color photos, I utilized a professional lab in Colorado.

    Ib: What advice would you give people who do not print their work about why photo prints are still important?

    MB: Prints are important, they can be given as gifts, they represent people’s memories, prints can hang on your own wall. Prints allow the photographer to produce their vision with an accurate rendition of luminance, contrast, and color.

    Many thanks to Myer for taking the time to talk with us and for his review of ILFORD GALERIE Prestige photo papers for digital photographs.

    Myer Bornstein is an award winning photographer  who took 1st Place in the South Shore Massachusetts Daniel Webster Photo Contest, Best of Show in the Friends of the National Wildlife Refuges of Rhode Island 2011 Photo Contest, and was one of the twenty-four finalists in the 2011 Massachusetts Audubon Photo Contest.

    Tim Grey on The Importance of Paper Attributes

    TimGrey Tim Grey on The Importance of Paper Attributes Noted color expert Tim Grey regularly posts interesting and informative articles on his popular Tim Grey’s Blog. One very interesting article begins the discussion of the importance of paper attributes when considering what paper to choose for a particular image.

    “One of the first things I look at when evaluating a paper is the surface texture and color,” says Tim. “Texture can really make a huge difference. I like something that is more organic, and that doesn’t even remotely resemble a repetitive pattern.” Tim goes on to discuss paper color and talk specifically about ILFORD GALERIE Prestige Gold Cotton Textured.

    ILFORD Guide to Handling Inkjet Prints

    Screen Shot 2013 07 09 at 11.17.24 AM ILFORD Guide to Handling Inkjet PrintsHandling inkjet prints after they come out of the printer is important to the life of the image on paper. As we know, pigment inks come out of the printer dry to the touch. And an additional time period is needed for the image to be completely stable. Evaporation of water and and solvents is sometimes referred to as “out gassing.”  It’s important to give a print some time to “breathe” before framing so that this “out gassing” process is complete. Generally allowing the print to cure in a warm, dry room for 24 hours before framing is adequate.

    After this curing process we want to make sure that we are handling prints properly to ensure their longevity. A Practical Guide to Handling Inkjet Prints for Optimum Results located under the Support tab at www.ILFORD.com provides some practical advice on storing and displaying your prints for best results.

    ILFORD Hints and Tips | Using a Paper Profile

    atlas 313x213 ILFORD Hints and Tips | Using a Paper ProfileOne of the most often asked questions I get is how to set the printer driver for printing using a paper profile.  Here’s the way it works:

    1. Let Photoshop or Lightroom manage colors. If you let the printer manage colors there’s no way to control what paper profile your printer is using. To choose what profile you want to use choose this setting.
    2. Select the printer profile you want to use! Be sure the profile you’re using is the correct option for the paper, printer, and ink combination you’re using. (more…)
