Best Black And White Digital Prints.


All our digital prints are produced on genuine ILFORD Black and White silver gelatine RC photographic paper. We believe this is as close as you can get to a traditional B&W darkroom print from a digital file and has significant benefits when compared to B&W images produced from colour processes;

I have printed a 21-step wedge for measurement on Hahnemuhle Photorag fine art paper. I chose this paper for its long history (1584) in paper making and its popularity amongst digital printmakers. Arguably, Hahnemuhle has one of the best canned profiles (ICC profile readily available) in the market today. Having a good baseline in testing is necessary to ascertain if there are any differences with the printing routes. Additionally, if there’s any improvement with HPR, it is almost certain that there would be significant differences with others. I will be using a Datacolor spectrophotometer (Spyder3 print SR) to measure. Note that the test strip was not printed to serve as a target, instead it was printed as a step-wedge to test the black and white linearity of different printing paths (printing a target dictates a different process)

That straight line top to bottom is where you’d want to be. That’s Luminance. Move a wee bit and you’ll touch color (colorcast)

For over 40 years, we have developed literally millions of rolls of film and we still love it! Most of us have been doing it for a long time – A.J., Ronnie, Joe, Emmanuel, Aimee, Nancy, Chris, Glen, Keith, Jay, Cyrus, Philip – all with at least 10 years in the craft. We love cameras of all types, as well as the trippy, new films. The Darkroom… Lots of experience and lots of love!Learn more about The Darkroom.

Please note we recommend uploading 8 bit Jpeg files in RGB or Greyscale format. The uploader is not compatible with 16 bit jpeg and tif files.

The following article on better digital black and white photography printing, is again written by guest writer Red Ognita, who’s not only a multi awarded black and white fine art photographer based in the Philippines, but he’s also a specialist in creating fine art black and white photographs. Many times in the past I’ve stated the importance of printing your work, especially if you consider yourself a fine art photographer: a photograph can only be considered a fine art photograph if it’s at least printed, anything else is digital art at best. The time and effort spent on the creation of a photograph, can only be appreciated if it’s printed and if it’s printed by a good fine art printer. Please read more on the importance of printing digital photographs in Red’s previous guest article.

Prints have a consistent and neutral image tone (no colour cast). Strong blacks and detailed highlights. Bright white base for stunning black and white photographs. Superb quality and robustness. Excellent batch-to-batch and print-to-print consistency.

No printing colour profiles required.

Why does it have to be linear? A linear response solves a lot of challenges when printing Black and White; abrupt tonal jumps (banding) ; reduced metamerism; consistent graybalance; high dMax without sacrificing shadow detail; print permanence  (less yellow ink; the most notorious color) and the ability to produce a neutral color (no colorcast)

But how would you know how that you’re producing your best? Do you even like to know?

As expected, the Hahnemule canned profile performed very well, but there is a significant improvement using the QTR. Aside from the evident (visual) smooth transition from Black to White of the test strip printed with QTR, the data also shows a higher dMax and a more linear response. With a bit of tweak, you can even see tonal differences in 2% steps (the 21 step-wedge is 5% increments)

The Darkroom can now print your digital files on genuine ILFORD Black and White Silver Gelatin Photographic Paper. We believe this is as close as you can get to a traditional B&W darkroom print from a digital file and has significant benefits when compared to B&W images produced from color processes.
