Fine Art Reproductions

 
 
 

 Got Art?

 

Reproduction is an art in itself.

Capturing the essence and experience of a piece of art requires technical proficiency, as well as a good understanding of how light interacts with different mediums.

It is not enough to “take a picture” of art. That produces something that feels like a picture, not like the art.

My passion is to go beyond the picture, and capture the art itself, and the experience of viewing the art.

I use dedicated studio space with an abundance of creative lighting and camera techniques to make “reproductions” of your art.

I specialize in handling challenging mediums: reflective glazes, or lacquer, reflective metals, metallic paints, deep blacks, delicate whites, and other properties.

My prices are very competitive and I can work under tight deadlines for hanging exhibits, or delivering purchased art. I also offer volume discounts.

I am working on building a custom transportation trailer, and will be offering transportation services at a charge, in the future.

 

 

Quality prints

 

Making art and sharing the original is wonderful, and can provide income.

Making prints of art allows you to share with more people, and increase the income produced.

 

Professional Quality printing uses a 300 dpi print resolution standard

inches @ 300ppi (numbers inside colored boxes are megapixels)

Design215 Megapixels Chart - The Original

A professional digital camera produces a file that can be printed at 3.3″ for each 1000 pixels of the sensor, with professional quality (1000 pixels / 300 dpi = 3.3″)

A popular professional camera, the Canon 5D Mark III has a sensor of 22.1 Mp = 5760 x 3840 pixels.

That sensor can print at 19.2″ x  12.8″ professional quality.

 

Most photographers use Full Frame cameras (Canon, Nikon, Sony) with sensors between 22 Mp – 40 Mp.

My studio is equipped with a Medium Format camera (far higher quality sensor) with a 51.4 Mp sensor.

I use a precision rail system to allow me to duplicate that 51.4 Mp sensor as many times as I need, when reproducing art.

 

My files are between 100 – 400 megapixels (10,000 – 20,000 pixels square), and higher on rectangular reproductions.

My reproductions can be printed very large with excellent quality.

At 300 dpi, my 100 Mp files (10,000 x 10,000 pixels) can print at 33″ x 33″ (10,000 pixels / 300 dpi = 33.3″) professional quality.

And my 400 Mp files (20,000 x 20,000 pixels) can print at 66″ x 66″ (20,000 pixels / 300 dpi = 66.6″) professional quality.

 

 

Giclée prints

 

Want to produce fine art prints?

Giclée prints are printed on fine art archival paper with archival ink at a stunning resolution of 720 dpi.

There are many Giclée print shops that print at 720 dpi, but use a lower resolution file (like 300 dpi) to print from.

This is not a true 720 dpi print. It uses the same amount of ink, but lacks 1 to 1 pixel to print detail.

For a Giclée print to be a true 720 dpi print, it needs to be printed from a 720 dpi file.

1000 pixels can print 1.4″ at Giclée quality (1000 px / 720 dpi = 1.39″)

 

At 720 dpi, my 100 Mp files can print at 14″ x 14″ Giclée quality.

And, my 400 Mp files can print at 27.8″ x 27.8″ Giclée quality.

 

Here is where the strength of my process shines.

If you want a large Giclée print, you need a very large file to match the 720 dpi print resolution.

My process allows me to create files at that size, using an extremely high quality medium format sensor.
 
 
 

Digital archive

 

My files can be used as archives for historic resources, and for insurance purposes.
 
 
 

Digital file for submission or catalog

 

Submitting a professional file, when entering you work to various forums, gives you an advantage.

Presenting your work in the best format possible is a good way to make an impression and get in the door.

 

Using professional files in your catalog gives your work the best presentation for potential buyers.
