hey i have recently done a forest series of portraiture, now i am printing this for my portfolio and i dont know whether to go for lustre or gloss, which one would you recommend for this?

i tried to go to my local office supply store and just do some test prints on gloss and matte to see the difference but they could only do gloss and it was instant prints so the prints were very smudged looking haha and colours were way off (they print in cmyk when my files are in rgb)

i know nature is usually best in gloss or metallic and portraiture is best on lustre or matte but when you combine the two i have no idea which would be better overall!

I would personally use either matte or semi-gloss/lustre for a portfolio. Portfolio books should have their own plastic sheeting/covers that have their own "glossiness". If you use a glossy print paper I'd suspect that the two "glossinesses" would conflict with not-so-pleasant results!
