From 2007 until 2015 I used another photography service to host my website. During that time period I gave my customers one choice in paper:
Kodak Endura Metallic
I understand that seeing an image of metallic paper doesn’t do justice to a REAL print. However, it’s the best I can do.
This is ACTUALLY a photo of a metallic print from my:
Chatfield Hollow gallery
I think the paper REALLY gave my photography pop. Metallic Paper gives your prints an almost 3D effect. I think being that I’m primarily a landscape photographer, metallic paper lends itself nicely to my style of photography. When I migrated my site in November 2015 I made sure to continue offering metallic paper.
Were I to start doing more portrait work and photographing people more often than I do I would consider changing my paper style. Everything I’ve read and seen about Kodak Endura Metallic Paper has said that it works best with landscape photography. I must agree as that is my primary focus and when I use any other type of paper I’m not as enthralled.
Why not purchase something at some point from my site and you can see for yourself. I like the effect that my paper choice offers. My customers have time and again commented on the quality of the paper as well.
In the meantime:
Focus on what’s ahead of you.
