The new Fotospeed Signature range brings together five of the world’s leading photographers with four of Fotospeed’s most popular and award winning fine art inkjet papers: Smooth Cotton 300, Natural Soft Textured Bright White 315, Platinum Baryta 300 and Platinum Etching 285.
Fotospeed Signature Platinum Baryta 300
John Swannell chooses Platinum Baryta 300. As a photographer John’s aim is to capture the spirit of his subject. While technology has changed over the years, the one thing he feels remains the same is the importance of the printed image. John feels that Fotospeed’s Platinum Baryta bridges the gap between traditional darkroom papers and today’s digital media. He finds that, whilst it is known for reproducing superb black and white images, it should never be under estimated as a paper for colour work.
Platinum Baryta Signature 300 is available in Australia in 24”, 36”, 44” and 50” width rolls, as well as A4, A3, A3+, A2 and Panoramic size cutsheets.
Fotospeed Signature Smooth Cotton 300
Joe Cornish’s paper of choice is Fotospeed’s Smooth Cotton 300. Joe aims to crystallise the endlessly varied light, colours and texture of nature in his landscape photographs. He feels that at the end of a chain of photographic processes, the print is the culmination and fulfilment of that effort and the paper is critical to the success of the print. That’s why he chooses Fotospeed Signature Smooth Cotton 300.
Signature Smooth Cotton 300 is available in Australia in 24”, 36” and 44” rolls, and A4, A3, A3+, A2 and Panoramic size cutsheets.
Fotospeed Signature Natural Soft Textured Bright White 315
Trevor and Faye Yerbury choose Natural Soft Textured Bright White 315 as their preferred Fotospeed paper. As traditional darkroom printers, it has taken Trevor and Faye many years to discover the right paper for their images that will capture and hold all of the shadow and highlight detail they demand. They have found Fotospeed’s Natural Soft Textured Bright White 315 does that beautifully for them.
Signature Natural Soft Textured Bright White 315 is available in Australia in roll widths of 24”, 36” and 44”, and cutsheets of A4, A3, A3+ and A2.
Fotospeed Signature Platinum Etching 285
Charlie Waite chooses Fotospeed’s Signature Platinum Etching 285. Charlie feels landscape photography is much about discovery and photographers can only fully relish the rewards of their efforts when seen in the form of a print. The paper used for that print has to be as carefully considered as the image made. Discovering Fotospeed’s Platinum Etching 285 has been a revelation to Charlie and has proved a vital tool in his ongoing quest to match pre-visualisation with the end result.
Signature Platinum Etching 285 is available in Australia in roll widths of 24”, 36” and 44” and in cutsheets of A4, A3, A3+, A2 and Panoramic sizes.
