I was a film shooter for years and developed and printed my own black and white images in my home darkroom. My first SLR was a match needle Fujinon. It got stolen, so I bought a Nikon FM and a Nikkormat EL-W, both of which I still have. Since then I have been primarily a Nikon shooter. Now I have Nikon DSLR cameras and Nikkor lenses for my landscape photography. I am a proud member of NPS. I also have a Fuji X-E2 mirrorless camera for a great walking around camera. The best camera is the one you have with you, and besides my cell phone, the X-E2 makes wonderful images I can print large. I use digital capture for my images and process them in Lightroom and Photoshop. I print my own images using Epson Professional Inkjet printers, with the Epson SureColor P5000 being my workhorse. I can print images up to 17″ wide and any length, which is great for panoramics. The UltraChrome HDX pigment inks are beautiful and even more longlasting. I use a variety of fine art papers. I tend to favor matte papers with a little bit of texture. Right now I am using Epson Hot Press Bright and Hot Press Natural, and for a traditional darkroom style satin paper, I use Canson Platine. My favorite paper is Moab Entrada, in both the Bright and Natural. I also print on Breathing Color canvas. The beauty of printing your images is the ability to experiment with paper, as it can enhance the image greatly.
