Buy nice paper
If you’re not printing your work regularly you should be. Whether its on an inkjet printer, a print from the lab or even working in a darkroom – this is a means of critically viewing your own work and making something presentable with it.
If you’ve not already done so – go buy some nice paper (either inkjet or silver gelatin) and print one of your favorite images. Notice how the quality of the paper lifts your image up and makes it sing. If you’re not convinced, make another print on cheap paper and you’ll see the difference.
Your work is important. You should believe this and so should the viewer looking at your work. Learn how to present it well.
