What type of print should I select when buying a photograph?
That's a great question. While everyone has their own preferences, this is what I would suggest for buying and displaying one of my photographs.
For all of the underwater photographs, my first choice is always a Metal Print. Metal Prints are created by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. These pieces are simply stunning. The color depth and detail is amazing. High Gloss has, in my opinion, the most depth, but they tend to be very reflective. If you want to tone down the reflections, choose the Mid Gloss option. For just about everything above water on land, I'd suggest the Mid Gloss option.
Looking for that traditional fine art look. The Giclee Canvas is for you. A word of caution when selecting a size and adjusting the cropping. The lighter area around the inside of the cropping box is what will wrap around the sides of the print.
An economical alternative to Metal Prints. Anything in the water really should go on the Metallic paper. Anything on land works best on the Lustre paper.
Most standard sizes are readily available but there's always a need for something off the menu. I'd be happy to work with you to get you a print that fits your needs. Hit the contact page and tell me what you're looking for. Don't forget to include the photograph(s), size(s) and print options you're interested in along with your contact info.
Frames and Extras
Many of the prints have framing options. I'd strongly suggest adding a frame with your print unless you have a really good local framer. I've been less than impressed with many of the local shops when it comes to framing the Metal Prints. The print lab does a professional job framing all types of prints. When your print arrives it'll be ready to go right up on your wall.
