Is Piezography worth the extra effort?

Piezography is worth considering if the photographer’s print goal is to bring out a black and white print’s tonal beauty, smooth the transitions between tones, give it an “off the charts” print result, and even hide its mistakes (if any). In the photo to Piezography-print process, William Blake’s quote “exuberance is beauty” comes into its own. Piezography® more than compensates for the effort the professional makes to learn it well. When artists know they have in their hand a print process that matches, and can even exceed their photo’s potential, it opens up for them new wonderful possibilities. Knowing what Piezography can produce teaches the photographer to push beyond tonal horizons in the design and creation of their photographic vision. Photographers who shoot with the print in mind shoot with an added advantage. For starters, it earths their vision, and influences their creative process. What are four simple advantages Piezography gives to photographers?

  1. Seven shades of black ink far exceeds the three shades of OEMs
  2. Piezography’s overlapping shades exceed the interlinking shades of OEMs
  3. Piezography has tens of thousands more gray shade combinations than OEMs
  4. Piezography’s superb tonal quality is forgiving of low resolution photographs

A recent print run for a client had a beautiful shot taken in a miraculous moment that contained too much grain in the wrong places. Piezography almost completely masked this deficiency, while enhancing the tonal richness of the shot. Not having to ‘mess’ with the photo in Photoshop CS6, preserved the photo’s integrity, and hours of work was quickly erased. Shoot with passion; print with excellence Loys
