The Future of Inkjet Papers According to Jon Canfield

Jon Canfield

Photographer Jon Canfield – he co-authored Photo Finish: The Digital Photographer’s Guide to Printing, Showing, and Selling Images – mulls over the future of inkjet photo papers in a new post at PhotographyBLOG.com.

If you’re a beginning photographer or a serious amateur who wants to produce great photos in print, it might serve you well to familiarize yourself with the specialty photo paper available right now and in the future.

Jon writes, “The two main trends are to a fiber pearl surface, and baryta papers. If you’re not familiar with the term baryta, it’s a paper that contains barium sulphate in the coating to enhance gloss and give a higher dmax with crisp image definition. It seems to be all the rage these days, and one of the major advantages is the ability to use photo black pigment inks.”
