Once the fine art photography prints are ready it is very important to give them an impressive finishing. The process of photo finishing the prints is either accomplished through the local business set ups at a limited level or it is done in a more professional way. In both the cases the options of finishing are numerous. Anyone can personalize the finishing with the help of the finishing tools and options. The finishing then contributes to the final appearance of the photographs making it look more impressive in terms of photo surface, texture, vividness of color and the contrast. It can be applied to all kinds of photography. The photographic finishing that can be added to the fine art photography prints are of four types. These categories include glossy, matte, luster and metallic finishing. The details of each are as follows:
In glossy finish the photograph gets a shiny appearance. A smooth paper with reflective properties is added above the photographs which add a sort of luster to the photographs. Once the coating with the paper is completed the printed photograph is not just protected but it also becomes more attractive due to the vibrant colors, the added sharpness and the crisp texture. The coating also makes the photographs bright. This technique is mostly used for the finishing of the daily life photographs. Once covered with the paper it also requires an extra framing like that of glass to protect it. If it is kept the way they are, there are chances that there will be finger prints left on the photo surface.
It is a smooth non shiny finishing that is usually used in the black and white photography. It is used to give professional touch to the photographs capturing the weddings or the new horns. They are easy to maintain as there are little chances that any are left with finger prints when touched. They are generally known for the low contrast and the classical appearance. If they are converted further into digital format, they become grainy in the appearance.
This kind of finishing is slightly glossy. It is subtle and pearl like appearance. Once the photograph is covered with this kind of finishing after printing, the colors look deeper, highly contrasting, and much thicker in the paper. This kind of framing is appropriate for the frames to be hanged on the wall. It makes the best use of the qualities of both the matte and the glossy finishing.
In order to ensure a longer life through durable protection metallic finish is used which gives chrome like appearance to the prints. It is also glossy and looks more like a metal. It is preferred for official displays.
Fine art photography prints is a great work done by technology. The prints become more sophisticated and appealing when framing is added to them. There are several types of fine arts photography prints, but the success depends upon how well we make the choice to find the appropriate one.
