One of the most satisfying aspects of photography is the finished product, a nice large print, framed and hanging up on the wall, and to see your vision become reality!
I've always enjoyed art, in all forms, that make you feel something special, whether visual, sound, touch or just nature itself. I picked these photos (visions) because they had an emotional impact on me, and I wanted to convey that mood onto something I could, as well as others, hang on a wall to view.
I've always enjoyed paintings, the way you could stare at them and get into the scene, so this is what I wanted to achieve. After doing some research and some experimenting I came up with a print that was visually stunning and easy to view, like a painting. It starts with a print from a large format Epson printer, which has excellent color and long lasting archival quality. The next step was a backing and I went with Gator Board, which is light weight and very strong. I didn't want to mat my prints and put them behind glass, just didn't like the glare and way they looked, so I had the print laminated to protect it and just frame them as-is, without glass and glare, and they are very durable and easy to care for. I've been doing my prints this way for a long time and love it! Another option is printing on canvas and protecting with a spray coating. I haven't done any of my prints this way, but have seen some with very good results.
I sell prints mostly framed, and one of my most popular frames is made from barnwood, very rustic and reasonably priced. It is best to see some of my prints in person, viewing it on a screen and viewing it in person are two different things. I show some of my photos at Captain Jack's Restaurant where I work where they are enjoyed by many.
