Yes, Prints for all the pictures shown here are for sale
my prints are custom made from the original transparency or negative
to achieve the highest level of detail as possible. I use the highest
quality materials to provide you with an image that you can enjoy
for many years.
print that you receive will be vastly more detailed than the representations
that appear on your computer screen. The computer representations
are 72 dots per inch. The original images were made using very fine
grain film in either 6X7 cm or 4X5 inch formats. This provides a
print with a much higher level of detail than is possible using
state of the art digital processes.
colours in the actual print will differ slightly from what you see
on your computer screen. The print may also be slightly darker or
lighter. While each print is carefully colour balanced for accuracy
and optimized for viewing, each computer monitor has individual
characteristics that affect the colour palate that it displays,
the contrast and the brightness. Unfortunately, there is no way
to share images over the web so that they will display exactly the
same on all monitors.
of photographs: Three types of films were used to photograph
the images in this site. Black and white is used to ad a "period
look " to the American Civil War collection. Most of the colour
photographs in this site were made on transparency film. Transparency
film has the advantage of being able to produce more intense colours
and a higher level of contrast. Negative film on the other hand
can capture delicate lower contrast nuances and can handle a wider
range of light than transparency film.
can tell which kind of film was used to capture an image by looking
at the letter suffix on the image catalogue number. N = colour negative,
T = transparency film and B = black and white negative film.
made from colour negatives are printed on Kodak type - C glossy
paper. The result is a print that shows the subtle variations in
colour and brightness with increased shadow detail.
made from transparencies are printed on Ilfachrome paper. Ilfachrome
provides the highest level of archivability. It produces a high
contrast vivid image that emphasizes the red and yellow ends of
and white images are printed on Kodak fiber based paper to produce
the best quality print with the highest archival properties.
photographic material is affected by light, especially direct sunlight
and florescent lights that have high levels of UV light. Prints
will last longer if they are hung out of direct sunlight and if
artificial illumination is provided by incandescent lighting. Special
conservation glass is available that absorbs more than 97% of damaging
UV light. I recommend framing photographic images using this glass.
My colour prints come triple matted and ready for framing. The mats
are carefully selected to best enhance each photograph. Black and
white prints come double matted in white. Each mat is bevel cut
by hand from museum quality 100% cotton rag mat board.
size: The "size" refers to the size of the photographic
paper used to make the print. The top mats overlap the edges of
the print to keep it mounted flat against the base mat. This means
that the viewable area of the print will be just slightly smaller
than the photographic paper size. The overall mat size is the next
larger standard photograph size. For instance an 11X16 print will
be mounted in mats that are 20 X 24. The proper frame size would
be 20 X 24.
Pricing: I am keeping my prices as low as
