What is Fine Art Landscape Photography?

"Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes."

"Fine art photography is photography created in line with the vision of the photographer as an artists using photography as a medium for creative expression." Really?

I think the goal of fine-art photography should be to capture a concept that will express an idea, a message, or an emotion that the artist-photographer felt when the idea for the photo was conceived. That conception often happens months or even years before the shutter is pressed. Then other times the concept of the final image changes while the photo-artists is looking through the viewfinder. This stands in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally representing objective reality rather than the subjective intent of the photographer; and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products, or services.

In short Fine Art photography is about creation rather than documentation. Easy enough to say, but concept creation in photography is not really that easy. The camera is meant to capture a scene, whether in stills or video, it can be the ultimate documentary device. It is the photo-artists job to make that capture more than what we commonly see. There are as many ways to accomplish this concept. A skilled artist has many tools at hand to make this captured scene their own. Lens can compress or expand how the scene is captured. The shutter can control the actual time the scene is recorded but slowing or freezing movement in a scene. The angle of light the artist chooses will make the scene seem harsher or softer, more defined by shadow or reviewed by direct light. That is only a few of the vast decisions the photo artist has the opportunity to make in the creation process there are many more to make before that shutter is opened.

Then when the image is recorded the fine art concept takes another step in the process. That of the darkroom work to bring the concept to life. It is not really important if the artist chooses the manual manipulation of the image with enlarger, burning and dodging the light as it strikes the paper and filter to control the strength of the contrast or a computer and software to have even more control of the creative process. Those decisions are just the choices the photo artist can make in the creation of their fine art photograph.

Lumachrome® HD Trulife® Acrylic Print, Ready to Hang

I prefer to display much of my work on the finest acrylic print in the world, the Lumachrome® HD Acrylic Print using TruLife® acrylic. The Lumachrome® process is engineered to overcome and surpass the limitations of traditional Fujiflex chromogenic and other inkjet processes. Details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the image with the Lumachrome® process along with brilliant colors, superior shadow luminosity & detail and a radiant glowing response under halogen lighting.

Trulife® acrylic is an innovative, single sided, anti-reflective, and abrasion-resistant acrylic. It virtually eliminates reflections, blocks up to 99% of UV rays, has a hard coat that protects against scratches and cleans like glass.

Your print will have a 1/8 inch thick acrylic surface with an aluminum backing and an HD 1.375" ROMA back mounted recessed floating frame allowing your artwork to appear to “float” on the wall.

OTHER FRAMING OPTIONS

While the frameless Lumachrome prints look great, you may prefer to purchase your print without the rear frame so that it may be placed inside a wood frame. We highly recommend the use of a linen mat in addition to the frame. I also highly recommend RomaMoulding® or LARSON-JUHL wood frames. While these frames are available at most custom frame shops, it would be my pleasure to provide you with a finished product including a mat and frame. I would be happy to discuss the options with you.

Exhibit Mounted Metal Print, Ready to Hang

These prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Your images will take on a magical luminescence. Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed. They are available in sizes up to 48” x 96”.

The prints are made with a brilliant white high gloss surface for unsurpassed detail and vibrance. They are mounted on inset frame that floats the print ¾” off the wall when hung.

If you need a size that is not shown or larger size, please contact me for options.

Fuji Crystal Archive Print, Ready for Framing

These fine art prints are made using Fuji Crystal Digital Pearl paper, which is in my opinion, is the finest paper available for printing high gloss Fine Art Photographs. Pearl-like crystals give silver halide color prints a specific luster, creating a distinctive pearl-like appearance, which is sure to capture your attention. This glossy surface offers sharp detail, high intensity colors, and a distinctive pearl-like appearance. The prints are mounted to a 2mm black or white Styrene backing that resists warping, making it an excellent choice for adding durability and providing rigidity for framing. These prints are available in almost any size up 100 inches. There are options for even larger prints. As I recall the largest we have done on paper was 160 inches long.

Museum Quality Fine Art Rag

Hahnemühle Photo Rag a white, 100% cotton paper with a smooth surface texture – guarantees archival standards. With its premium matt inkjet coating

I prefer this paper for the best classic fine art display medium. My work has been printed on this paper over one thousand times and displayed in collections worldwide. Its surface is smooth with a subtle texture, and a slightly warm base that produces very pleasing B&W prints reminiscent of platinum prints and meets the highest industry standards regarding density, color gamut, color graduation, and image sharpness while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper.


Shipping Costs

The cost of shipping for prints 24x36 and smaller is included for orders in the United States. Pieces larger than 24x36 will be charged at actual shipping and insurance cost from the shipper. Your artwork will be carefully packed and could require a signature upon receipt. Tracking information will be provided to you.

Authenticity

Your Limited Edition Fine Art Print is digitally signed accompanied by a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity. In most cases, the Certificate will be emailed to you as a pdf file but can be mailed to you, if desired.

Returns For Damage

I stand behind the quality of my products. However, there is always the possibility of something unexpected happening where the print is damaged in packaging or shipping. If your artwork arrives damaged, please notify me immediately and provide me photographs of the damage. I will work with you to return the artwork for a replacement at no cost to you. Please understand that I require that you notify me of the damage within 48 hours of receipt of your artwork.

Displaying Your Artwork

It is important that you display any fine art photography in a well-lit space or with individual lighting. The metallic papers and metal prints do an incredible job of using and reflecting light to show off the image as it should be. While it is not possible to duplicate the brightness of back-lit screens from computers and other devices, the papers and processes used for my artwork will result in outstanding results with proper lighting.

Privacy Policy

Your personal information such as credit card numbers, email address, phone number, etc. will NEVER be sold or given to any other person or business.

Heat!

The purchase of any artwork for your home or office is never an easy decision. There are many things to consider and I would like to provide you with as much information as I can to help you through the process. I understand these decisions are highly personal and I am available to answer any questions you may have.


Considerations When Choosing A Fine Art Print

Many people choose a fine art print because of a connection to a location or scene. Perhaps they lived nearby or had a very special experience there and they want something to remember it by. With our large selection of fine art prints from many locations, it is easily possible that there could be more than one to decide between.

Of course, possible a better reason is to purchase artwork simply because you feel it will be a striking addition to your home or office. Maybe it is a location you would like to go to someday or even just the colors you find attractive. Art is always subjective and if you like it, you like it.

The next decision is the style of print. I have been most impressed with the Lumachrome® HD Acrylic Print using TruLife® Acrylic because of the way the TruLife® Acrylic eliminates glare. Nothing is more frustrating than having a beautiful print on the wall that you can barely see because it is reflecting what is outside a nearby window. Please review our Prints page for more information on the styles of prints.

Matching Colors In The Room

This decision is subjective and there is not a set answer. The world outside may have scenes with muted earth tones, like in the desert areas. There may be deep greens in the forests, blue skies or colorful trees and flowers. The world outside is a beautiful place. It is our opinion that any of our landscape photos would look great in any room in your home. There could be some rare cases where colors might conflict, but that is probably unlikely


What Size Should I buy?

That question has no perfect answer. There are many variables such as wall space, budget, and just how much you like a piece.

I prefer large prints to give real impact and with the technology I use very large prints go beyond the detail of what was possible only a few years ago but they may not be for everyone. Visit, Go Big at home for the rationals for supersized prints.

But the general rule is that bigger is always better. If you are going to use a frameless Lumachrome HD Acrylic or Metal Print, you would want a larger size than if you were having one my Fuji Crystal Achive Prints matted and framed.
An old “rule of thumb’ is having the artwork be 2/3 to ¾ the width of the furniture. So, in the case of a sofa that is 96 inches wide, the artwork should be 63” to 72” wide.


In a bedroom environment, this would mean artwork 43” to 48” wide over a 65” wide queen size headboard and artwork 53” to 60” wide over an 80” wide king size headboard. But there is nothing wrong with matching the size of the bed as in the Yellowstone Wolf print below.

Thoughts About Lighting

We all want our Fine Art Prints to look their very best. The nature of Lumachrome® HD Acrylic Print using TruLife® Acrylic prints, Metal Prints and the Fuji Crystal Archive Prints is that they come alive with a certain brilliance when light is applied to them.

If you're like me, you may not have track lighting or recessed ceiling lights to provide the perfect lighting. Many of us have to rely on natural light coming in through the windows or other room lighting. This doesn't mean your prints cannot have impact, just not as much as if special lighting is applied.

The next best thing to special lighting is a well lit room from indirect sunlight. The TruLife® Acrylic does an amazing job of reducing what glare there is while the metallic nature of the printing surface uses the natural light to reflect the details of print. Direct sunlight is always a no-no, as it causes glare, reflections and can eventually reduce the vibrancy of the print.

If you do use some type of track or recessed ceiling lighting, the general rule is that it is at about a 30 degree angle from the artwork. The light fixtures should have and adjustable angle and be able to be dimmed. The best bulbs for lighting artwork are LED bulbs with a color temperature of 3000k to 4000k. The bulbs should be such that they provide even lighting over the entire print, not so wide that they light up the wall or so narrow that they do not light up the outside edges of the print.

It would also be a good idea to obtain an opinion from a local lighting expert regarding your individual situation. Of course, you should use the services of a qualified electrician to install lighting.
