A method of printmaking used to produce high quality images from a digital source by ink-jet printing. The ink is sprayed onto a wide range of media in millions of colours utilising continuous tone technology. This method is associated with prints that use fade-resistant ‘archival’ inks.
Also known as a dark room print, this is the most common type of black-and-white photograph produced. Photosensitive silver salts are suspended and dispersed in the gelatin, which acts as a stabilizer for the chemicals. The image taken from the negative is then embedded in the gelatin coating on fibre-based paper as the chemicals react to the varied concentration and brilliance of the light.
A standard, high contrast black-and-white photographic paper print, with the blacks and whites being very sharp. The image is produced by a chemical change in the surface of the paper when it comes into contact with the bromide. The image sharpness is produced because the paper’s surface is not fibre-based.
The print material consists of at least three layers of emulsions, in which the photographic chemicals are kept stable. Each layer contains light-sensitive silver salts designed to be sensitive to a different colours (red, green or blue). Chemicals are added during printing which forms the appropriate colours in each layer, which combined together form an accurate reproduction of the colour image.
A high-quality print created by various sized droplets of ink propelled in file detail onto paper. The inkjet print is produced from a digital image file as opposed to a negative. A fine art print produced on this medium should use archival paper of a fine quality and ink appropriate to the quality of the image. An increasingly popular fine art medium, inkjet prints allow a greater spectrum of colour reproduction.
A digital print where the chemicals are handled carefully with the intent of increasing the image’s longevity. This includes handling and treating the photographic materials in a way that lessens their deterioration from ageing and from chemical reactions with other materials.
In photography, vintage prints are typically the earliest prints that the photographer makes soon after developing a negative, vintage prints are considered original pieces of art.
