ILFORD announced today that its GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Silk has been awarded the 2013 TIPA photo award for Best Inkjet Photo Paper. Designed specifically for printing fine art monochrome images, TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) praised the new Gold Mono Silk for bringing out a rich, vibrant tonal range and transition in black and white prints.

Printing black and white fine art prints has long been recognized as an art form. Silver gelatin black and white prints have been recognized as the ultimate printed form of photography known for the wide tonal range, beautiful paper surfaces, and permanence ratings. Since the advent of digital photography inkjet papers and inks have evolved dramatically causing collectors, galleries, and museums to recognize that digital prints now rival and surpass silver gelatin prints. Now your desktop becomes the black and white darkroom that no longer requires an enlarger, orange safe light, and trays filled with chemicals.
With the introduction of the latest fine art inkjet papers and in particular, ILFORD’s new Gold Mono Silk Paper, black & white printing on today’s inkjet printers has taken a great leap in quality. To get the best results from these prints, you need to understand the tools available for converting full color captures into gray-scale images, understand how to adjust tonal distribution in an image and decide which type of paper will do the best job in conveying both the dynamic qualities of the photograph and the intended mood.
Join host Joe Brady in this free webinar sponsored by ILFORD as the workflow and techniques from capture to edit to print are discussed and explored. If you are a fan of black and white images or interested in getting started, this presentation will be time well spent.
