I hate glossy posters. I'm sure they have their place and all, but generally they bum me out. This poster was printed with some highly reflective ink that made photographing it very difficult. I couldn't get it decently lit without all sorts of reflections popping up. You can't tell with this black-and-white photo, but the background color is bronze. Imagine how hot this would look if the black ink had a matte finish. Flat black against metallic bronze? Sproing!!!
