I'm one of the few people who pass prints round during a talk. It allows the club members to see how the print and the paper work as one. After talks many of the clubs members realise holding a print makes all the difference. The prints for my talks are not backed which is occasionally commented on during the talk.
- the weight and additional boxes to carry the prints.
- the waste & expense created by backing prints.
- Storage of backed prints after talks and exhibitions
- The ability to reuse mounts
- Damaged prints can be remounted
- I use framers tape for the prints.
- The prints talks don’t have be inline with Federation or PAGB rules as it’s a personal talk designed for camera clubs, the mounts are 50 x 40cm to fit club light boxes.
Talk should not to be confused with Competitions rules associated with the PAGB and federations, many well known print worker do the same.
It’s a personal choice how speakers do their presentation.
