I confess that I've owned my Epson 3800 for a couple of years but have let it sit idle too often. Lately I've been focussing my efforts on refining my mastery of ink jet printing. Slowly but surely, I'm making progress. The little advances I make during this process are very rewarding and I have now come to think of a print as the ultimate and final stage to a photograph.
That may sound silly, but I have been converting many of my photos to jpegs for online posting for so long, it had become a habit. Printing shows me things about the image and about my technique that posting online does not.
The most recent revelation for me was discovering Ilford Gallerie Gold Fibre Silk paper. It immediately hit some sort of sweet spot for me. But with the hundreds of papers out there, I'm wondering if you end up using one paper exclusively or the majority of the time. If you use more than one paper, what criteria do you use in selecting the type for any given image?
