Materials and framing
Although many of my photographs are taken on film, I scan the negatives to convert them to a digital file and eventually print them myself on an archival photo printer as a pigmented ink print or "giclee".
In between the negative and the final print I try not to adjust the image too far from the original scene, often just cleaning up spots on the negative digitally and sharpening.
I also create stitched photos with a digital camera using eight or so vertical shots to "stitch" together with a computer program.
My intent is to try to find scenes that are expressive in themselves, usually near dawn or dusk, and unless I'm unusually lucky the first time, I return to the scene till the optimum conditions are there or not (sometimes never!).
The photos on paper or canvas should be colorsafe for at least 80 years.
My photographs are often purchased framed, as I think I offer good quality at a reasonable price. I do all the
handwork myself: the frame cutting and joining, the mat cutting as well as drymounting the photographs.
At the moment I'm almost exclusively doing framed canvas photos. I have 6 frame styles:
the #1 for linen liners on framed canvas photos, numbers 2,3,4 for smaller photos, numbers 5 and 6 for the extra-large photographs.
In recent years I've been offering more photos on canvas, framed with an outer molding and an off-white linen liner.
The image is just the same size as my photos printed on paper and with the same detail as I use a matte canvas with a fine grain.
There's also an invisible coating sprayed on the canvas to protect it a bit more from abrasion and enhance longevity.
