Why Prints Matter to You as a Photographer

The final step to creating a photo does not just stopped once the shutter has been pressed.
Printing your image should be your final part of photography.
And a well-made photo book is a pure satisfaction when you've been spending all that time and effort in creating a photo.


"Printing your photos is one of the most important steps when being a photographer.
It gives you the ability to see your photo printed and feel a physical copy of your work.
What's even better than prints is printing your photos in a book. Being able to print your photos in a book is the greatest feeling ever.
It's a great conversation starter, portfolio piece or even great for the coffee table.
I think everyone should make a photo book with their photos in it.
You see your work in a different way and appreciate it a lot more." says Nick.

We definitely agree on all counts. Nothing beats the feeling of holding your work in your hands.
Seeing all of your hard work and dedication printed on beautiful paper has never felt so good.

How paper type can affect the mood of your photographs

Gloss VS Matte

Believe it or not, your mood in your image really depends on your choice of paper type. Most professional photographers consider gloss paper to be the ideal canvas for their landscapes and nature photography.

Gloss

One reason that glossy prints have become the favored option is because they are outstanding at showing plenty of details and vibrant photos. The gloss over the photographs tends to appear crisper and sharper, as well as creating an energized and cheerful feel. If you want to print a colorful landscape shot with bright details, a glossy photo paper is the best to bring out the true beauty of your photos.

Matte

A matte paper, on the other hand, is a great choice to give your photos a more natural and authentic feel. The matte finish over the photographs set the right mood for moody, somber and atmospheric photos. Whether you decide to pick a matte or gloss finish will eventually depend on personal preference and taste.

Nick's Tips
For Shooting Stunning Landscape Photos

While it's different for everyone, here are few tips from Nick to get the most out of your landscape photos.
There are a few factors you'll want to keep in mind that goes into a landscape photo before you head out.
That includes gear, timing and patients. Um, taking notes!

01. Invest In A Tripod.
Let's talk about the gear he recommend. You'll need a very sturdy tripod because it may be windy out or you'll have it in running water. It needs to be tough enough to be able to withstand those elements and people from easily knocking it over. Also it helps your camera to be stabilized the entire time while taking a photo.
02. Use Good Lenses
Second, you'll want a good wide angle lens. A wide angle lens allows you to get more in view and broadens your perspective of a certain landscape. You can get pretty creative as well when it comes to wide angle lenses. Lastly, remote timers, filters and cleaning supplies are all worth it when it comes to taking a great landscape photo!
03. Time Of Day
As much as the gear is important, the time that you go out is a lot more important to your photo. The best time to go out and take landscape photos is either sunrise or sunset. These times will give you this beautiful "golden hour" glow that makes landscapes a beautiful thing to look at. Neither is better than the other, but sunrise is when you can get some nice morning dew/ fog that adds to your photos.

04. Be Patient
Last but not least, is you need patients! It takes time to understand when to go out or which lenses to use. A lot of times your photo won't work out and that is okay. Just keep trying and you'll eventually get it. Learn about composition, lighting and get creative with your photos! Photography is a great way to show your creative side and share it with thousands of people.

Landscape photography is becoming increasingly popular as it holds thrilling and adventurous possibilities.
Not only that, landscape photos will look amazing in your portfolio or look even best printed on beautiful paper.
With the right equipment, good research and a little bit of dedication, you will be able to capture breathtaking shots as well.
Once you got them, do not forget to print them out, because you will definitely find a great satisfaction in seeing your work in prints.
