Quick question to the knowledgeable crowd here - I am happy owner of a Bogen 18.5 x 22.5" dry mount press, and it works very well to dry mount my silver gelatin prints onto the backboard paper. But I also tried using it to dry fiber-based silver gelatin prints to avoid wrinkling during the drying process - did anyone of you ever try this? I found it can work well with some precaution needed: At about 180F, the 8x10" print needs to sit in there for about 5 minutes to dry. The paper comes out wrinkle-free and only curls a bit when laid down flat on a surface (not an issue since I dry mount it afterwards anyway). What I found is that it is not a good idea to dry the paper between the two paper boards inside the dryer for the full length (5 minutes) of drying time - some part of the print paper tends then to stick too tightly to the paper boards. This can be avoided by opening the drying after a minute of so and moving the print before it adheres. Did anybody have some better advice here - I only find information online about the dry matting itself, but nobody seems to use such dryer for actually drying silver gelatin prints. Or is this not a good idea to do, and I was just lucky that it worked?
Hi, I'm relatively new to the process of selling my prints. I was wondering if anyone could give me a basic walkthrough of how it works. Everything from Copywriting my photos to printing and selling.Im still in the relatively smallish photo industry, I'm thinking postcards or 5x7's. Thanks
