Prints

                                         

As Ansel Adams once said: “The negative (now digital file) is the composer’s score, the print is the performance”. I spend a great deal of time  crafting my prints.

Light in the early morning hours and late afternoon is un-negotiable. But knowing how to expose my image by Ansel Adams Zone System  allows me to photograph at anytime of the day. So I photograph at anytime of the day, depending on what kind of image I want to create.

After I capture, I then fine tune my images in Photoshop. First I make global adjustments for contrast, then I work on specific areas to lighten or darken in order to express my vision of the scene.

Every image I work on, I save as a master file in Photoshop format with many adjustment layers. The master file is my preparation for the print.                         Making a master file in Photoshop is like working in the darkroom to get an optimum print. I will then make proof prints along the way, and hope to end up with an interpretation that realizes this image in the strongest way possible.

Nowadays, the varieties of paper that we can make prints on are mind boggling. Every type of paper produces some subtle variations in the print. With today’s technology, the right combination of ink and paper will produce a print that will last over 100 years.
