I can’t believe the the prints have come together for my group show On a Clear Day with help from the Master printer Les Walkling and his son Andre. There is no greater feeling than seeing them at a larger scale on the finest photographic paper. I went with Baryta Prestige for its smoothness and tone. It evokes the look and aesethic feel of traditional darkroom papers.
I always learn so much working with Les and Andre on solving creative problems.
Here are some the steps involved in the creative process of printing.

I had to be in this photo with my favourite print. It was so exciting to see it come out.
Time to package it up for the for the framers.
Many thanks to Les and Andre Walkling for helping me to get to the next level for this exhibition.
Nest step is framing. Stay tuned.
