Best Inkjet Photo Paper for Flower Photography

What it the Best Inkjet Photo Paper for Flower Photography? Find out now!

©Rob Hull

Flowers offer as much variety, probably more, than photographing people. Images of flowers can be bold, subtle, colorful, or muted. Flowers can even evoke different emotions and moods. Therefore, you will want to choose the right paper to properly convey the feeling in your flower photography.

For pop, saturation and a bright mood, choose satin and glossy papers. You can choose from warm or cool tone satin paper. A warm tone paper can add to the natural feel of an image, while cool papers contribute to more pop and contrast.

If your flower photos feel more subtle and you want an elegant look consider photo matte and cotton fine art media. These non-reflective surfaces bring down the saturation level a bit and allow viewers to focus on fine details in your work.

For a bit of fun, print your flower photos on Polar Gloss Metallic 255 (formerly 66lb. Polar Pearl Metallic). The effect is quite stunning. A photo metallic usually works best for non-organic objects and imagery. However, nature's color pallet is on full display with flowers.
