Prints on Slickrock Pearl

My client was a designer working on the decor for a luxurious vacation home for a well-to-do photography collector. The designer’s request for the prints once the collector had selected the images was they should be made so that “the prints popped and were exciting.” 

To meet the specification, I choose Moab Slickrock Pearl Metallic as my substrate. I’m happy that both the designer and the collector were pleased with the results.

The four images are shown in larger size below. The images were created between 2009 and 2015. If you want to learn more about each image check out the links to the original blog stories I wrote at the time of image creation (below).

Disclosure: Moab Paper sponsors me, for which I am very, very grateful.

Museum at Bodie © Harold Davis

This image of the museum at the old ghost town of Bodie was created from six exposures using High Dynamic Range (HDR) techniques. Each exposure as at 18mm, f/22, and ISO 200, with my camera on a tripod. The exposure times ranged from 1/60 of a second to six seconds….original blog story.

The photo in this story is of the Philosophical Hall, part of the library of the massive Strahov Monastery in the hills above Prague in the Czech Republic which I just got around to processing. Strahov Monastery was founded in 1143, and is a Premonstratensian abbey….original blog story.

The lighting, photography, and post-processing of this image all had the same goal: to increase saturation and tonal contrast and create a kind of “Georgia O’Keefe” effect. This is a set of techniques I’ve already used in my Variegated Rose (shown at the top of Photoshop Credo)….original blog story.
