In part 2 of 2 in this series on making a fine art photography print, I’ll show you the 8×10 proof and how to analyze it. You’ll also see how I deckled the edge on my full-size watercolor paper print. Then we’ll look at the final, finished fine art print framed and hanging on the wall.
There’s no greater satisfaction in digital and film photography than creating a finished fine art print to hang on the wall. Whether you do it in a traditional darkroom setting or you scan the film negative on an Epson V750 scanner like I did here, the results can be incredibly rewarding.
I love creating fine art photography prints because I find digital sharing unfulfilling. With digital files, it’s here today, gone tomorrow. But a true print can’t be ignored so easily. And although the cost involved can deter some beginner photographers, it’s worth the expense on the photos that really matter. That’s why I encourage my students to print their photos instead of just letting them gather dust on their hard drive.
The photography print I made in this video is from a scanned 6×7 negative shot with a Mamiya RZ67 camera in Joshua Tree National Park. The film used was Ilford Delta Professional 100 medium format film. The scanner used is an Epson V750 with SilverFast software. I used watercolor paper and had it float-mounted in a shadowbox frame.
