Digital Silver Imaging is pleased to announce the launch of our new Competition Printing services. We have added this service to meet the growing demand for black & white printing. I have seen an increase in black & white prints at the regional PPA competitions and noticed that many of the prints are on color papers. Many photographers had moved away from printing b&w; images due to the color cast they were getting from their professional color labs.
We recently did two true black & white competition prints for Dan Doke at the Professional Photographer’s of Massachusetts convention and this is his response to our printing:
“Man they look awesome. I used to be a pretty good black and white printer…Then digital set in 10 or so years ago and I did not touch my darkroom. I got used to the bluish grey color my lab put out. I sent those same files to my color lab and they said that the contrast was off and would not look good. So I called you right away and had Digital Silver Imaging do them. They look awesome!! I forgot about the real blacks and mid-tones in a real print. I am blow away.”
Dan earned two blue ribbons, including an 82 & a 90 for his two images.
Digital Silver Imaging’s Competition Printing services are reasonably priced and provide a great solution for your print. We use true Ilford B&W; silver gelatin papers and chemicals to produce neutral tone, archival prints. These are mounted to the appropriate board for PPA competition requirements.
