So, what is the advantage of a metal print? And who does a good job with them? Trying to decide if I want to give one a try.

I use metal prints in my house now. Here is a link to some photos of an order I did through Bay photo. I will not order anywhere else because their product and customer service are absolutely top notch!

There are a few different kinds of metal prints though. I'm not a big fan of metal showing through the image. That is called Sheer and the whites of an image are not printed and rather the aluminum will show through in those parts.

I'm also not a huge fan of the metallic paper. I'd rather have a glossy. The glossy prints on metal are what I use for landscapes. I have done test with all types with exactly the same image. The glossy just a pop to them and I'd rather look at them with a bit of glare than the reduced contrast of a satin shot. Portraits are different. I'd rather have the satin.

The benefit of metal prints are they are extremely durable. You can clean them with a wet cloth, use them indoor/outdoor, they are very easy to hang. (one nail) and they look great floating off the wall. Not to mention, you pay a bit more initially, but they are much cheaper option than framing and look much more modern.

I'll likely never buy another framed print in my life. My clients are also moving towards these types of prints. I have a 4.5' x 2' collage wall printed in metal coming in one day. I will post examples of it when I get it hung.

Holy hell those are vibrant! Those look so nice.

Same with Gerry's. I love the flowers in the metal print.

I ordered my first metal print off groupon and got a 16x20 for 19.99. Got a 30 day print waiting period but I'll post up the final product when I get it for you guys to check out. For 20 bucks, can't go wrong i guess. I got my Atlanta photo printed.

Hi Drew,

If it's from Pictureitoncanvas, I think you'll be pleased. I got a photo I took on Maui printed at 16x20 and it looks great. I also took the Groupon deal. For the price, can't be beat. The print I received was very nice.

p.s. They will email you frequently with deals once you've ordered from them... so you may want to give them an email account you don't care too much about.

One thing the gorilla pods are brilliant for is mounting your flash to and wrapping the the legs around a tree, post anything were you want the flash off camera but don't want to carry a light stand.

What an awesome idea. I may look into picking one up for that reason, alone.

I think that sold me - if I doesn't work out as a tripod in a pinch, I have a decent flexible light stand.

In the HS basketball thread, the guys that use flash use it this way. They find a railing and away they go. Less chance of it getting knocked down/over.

Yes I totally forgot to mention that. I was going dual flash with both of my 430s and had one on my tripod...and the other on a gorilla pod on a chair, using the legs to grip the back of the chair. They work amazing for remote lights.

I got the one with the ball head, it works fine. I haven't tried it with my 70-300L on it, that would probably be too front heavy.
