Best Inkjet Photo Paper for Water, Ice, and Reflections Photography Printing

Getting the right look from your water, snow, and ice images can be a challenge. Once you get the exposure and angle just right, you will want to show off your hard work. This brief article is here to help you quickly find the right paper to print these types of images.

Glossy and photo metallic inkjet papers add sharpness and reflective punch. This boost in reflectivity can be beneficial when your image includes shimmering water or glistening ice. The paper's shade is important because it sets the tone for all of your whites. Arctic Polar Gloss is a brilliant cool-white while Polar Gloss Metallic 255 has a definitive warm tone. Use warmer tone papers in scenes dominated by Earth tones and darker waters.

Matte inkjet papers allow for maximum detail appreciation while toning down punch and saturation. Icy and snowy scenes benefit from matte printing because they often include more highlights than shadow. You will be able to fully appreciate any details because matte paper lacks reflectivity, even when viewed under bright light. As a bonus, Polar Matte's bold, bright tone sets the perfect white point for your print.
