    I am producing a body of work for my senior show. I am shooting all the photos with my D200 and then do PP work in photoshop. I need to know what some good kinds of paper are to print on. Cost means nothing to me, I want these prints to look as good as they can. They are going in a gallery so I do not want to cut corners. I would like to stick to matte paper as the glossy gives the view too much glare at times. Thank you for your help.

    Enhanced Matte will look great, I assume you are framing these photos. If your not I would go with a luster paper. I use an Epson 1800 and stick with Epson papers. I find the enhanced matte looks fantastic when behind glass.

    I would use whatever matt paper is recommended for that particular printer. I use an Epson 2200 and print with the Epson enhanced matte paper (better archival life) or Epson Matte Heavyweight. If the final presentation is going to be behind glass, my experience is some sort of thick bright matte paper.

    Depending on the look I am striving for, the watercolor paper from Epson is also nice if you want some sort of texture.
