Month of Wedding Photography: Q & A Printed emotions in mini or maxi by Luka Zanic (Croatia)

“Don´t forget those emotions” is the wonderful motto of Luka Zanic and his wedding prints on Hahnemühle paper. The Croatian photographer points out that there is a important difference between photography and printed fine photography – wether in small format on our Hahnemühle Photo Cards or on Hahnemühle FineArt Inkjet Leather Albums to last for generations. Luka creates outstanding prints and recorded the results in insightful videos we love to share. Several times we reported on his work and ask him to take part in our Blog Special on the “Month of wedding photography” in May. Enjoy our Q & A session and the linked videos.

Month of Wedding Photography: Q & A Magical Photo Books by Jen Huang and Neve Albums (USA)

Welcome to our “Blog Special” in May! Traditionally the ‘wedding month’ in Germany – where our paper manufacture is producing finest paper since 431 years. Even for wedding photography.
Spring is about to burst, the light is bright … so it´s the right time to say “yes”. A lot of photographers in the wedding business say “yes” to our fine art paper when it comes to photographs, portfolios, albums or books to keep the memories of all those ceremonial, breathtaking or heartwarming moments of a wedding. To capture love stories, small gestures, great feelings or unforgetable moods in picture stories photographers love our Digital FineArt Paper for its ability to preserve these moments in inkjet prints that stay the test of time.

So let´s ask some weddings photographers from all over the world on their success in the business and why they trust the market leading inkjet fine art papers by Hahnemühle – Matt,  glossy or our canvas. All of them praise our paper for an outstanding colour gamut, density and resolution paired with the extraordinary haptics of genuine artist paper. This combination results in brilliant and crisp keepsaking archival inkjet prints which could be showcased mounted, in frames, portfolio boxes, albums or binded books for generations.

The first photographer in our  Q & A is Jen Huang from USA. She proudly contributed one of her motifs to our Hahnemühle Sample Book of all our Digital FineArt Papers. With her husband from Neve Albums she create the worthiest presents for a couple: magical wedding books filled with prints of their precious moments on our double-side printable Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Book & Album Paper or the deckle-edge papers Photo Rag®, William Turner or Museum Etching.

Guest Post by Martina Peters

“I paint and draw since I’ve been able to hold a pen – very cliché. I was never very good at expressing myself in words so I choosed the graphical way. I discovered Manga by watching the animated series Sailor Moon.

Longing for Ireland – Photographs for St. Patrick Day 2015

Every year on March, 17 the Irish and the people of Irish descent in the world are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. It is a religious and cultural festival that commemorates the anniversary of the death of the Irish patron St. Patrick. This day is especially for those Irish who live in the diaspora, a day full of longing for the Emerald Isle. The German photographer Holger Hess is feeding this longing with wonderful images. His portfolio includes lovely landscapes in postcard idyll style as well as rugged, windswept coasts, mystical long exposures of the Atlantic up to abandoned, deserted valleys, reminding us why so many Irish people had to turn their backs on their homeland. We did a short Q&A with Holger Hess on the occasion of St. Patrick’s Day about his yearning images.
