Musea Test Prints

If you love your images, get them printed. Period.

I recently received some test prints back from the folks at Musea and was completely blown away by the quality. We were given 4 different papers to try out (so each picture you see represents a different paper) and while I liked some over others, they all brought out amazing qualities in the photos that were just not there when looking at the images from a screen. 

High quality prints bring out a certain "feeling" from an image that you just don't get when looking at the image on an iPad. Yes, iPads are cool and I use mine a ton but a print just kicks in this sense of "it's really there" and "it's really something". It's not just a file, it's a real thing.

The images came individually wrapped in sleeves with indication of the type of paper. I believe the paper was Hahnemule, which is a very high quality paper.  Images are as follows starting top right and going clock-wise: (1) Holman and Monica's wedding (2) Arashiyama Bamboo Forest (3) Phil and Carol's wedding (4) Baby Abigail's 1 year birthday party.

Out of sleeve. It's hard to see from this image on a screen but there is texture on the papers (some rougher than others).

I've seen this image of Arashiyama Bamboo Forest a million times on my screen. Then I saw it as this print and was like ... "Wow."
