Print Information

My images are captured with a Nikon D200 or D100 digital SLR camera. I bring the raw files into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for processing and printing. Adjustments to the images are minimal; usually only minor changes to exposure, contrast and brightness and cropping, if necessary. If the image seems to work better in black and white, I render it in black and white in Lightroom. My goal is to produce a print that is faithful to the way I saw and envisioned the scene when I captured the image. My prints are pigment-on-paper, printed with an Epson Stylus Pro 3800. Most of the papers I use are Moab Entrada, Kokopelli, and more recently, Moab Colorado Fiber, which is designed to produce the look and feel of traditional air-dried silver halide paper. The pigment inks and papers are museum, archival quality, and have been tested by Wilhelm Imaging Research with a permanence ratings ranging from 75 to 200 years, framed under UV filter glass or acrylic. The permanence rating is defined as the number of years before noticeable fading or changes in color balance occur (www.wilhelm-research.com). Prints are framed with Acrylite® OP-3 P-99, which has UV-filtering and non-glare. Mats are Crescent® Select™ Conservation 100% acid-free museum-quality preservation, 3/32” thick, purchased from American Frame. All other materials used in matting and framing are museum conservation quality.
