Print of the Month: Poppies

Our March, 2011 offering is Poppies. In our neck of the woods, poppies are among the first flowers to bloom in the spring. So we feel it is appropriate to offer this lush and romantic image, printed large on 17″ X 22″ paper. Note: The actual image size is somewhat smaller, allowing for my hand signature and overmatting when you frame the piece.

Poppies is made by hand and giclee printed with tender, loving care in my studio on 325 gsm Epson archival Exhibition Fiber paper. This popular image is published in The Photoshop Darkroom 2: Creative Digital Transformations (Focal Press).

My normal, retail price for this archival print is $450.00. For the month of March, 2011, I am offering Poppies for the very special price of $195.00. This includes careful, custom packing and insured Fedex ground shipping within the United States. (For orders outside of the United States, please contact me for shipping costs.)


Purchase Poppies for the special Harold Davis Print of the Month price of $195.00

Poppies shows a bouquet of Papaver rhoeas. These flowers were grown in my garden. I photographed the bouquet for transparency using my hand-HDR technique explained in The Photoshop Darkroom 2: Creative Digital Transformations (Focal Press)and in Creative Lighting: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques (Wiley). This print will look gourgeous in a wood frame, and will transform any room with its glowing yet subtle colors. Here’s the blog story I wrote about Poppies.

We make our prints with a great deal of care with the best archival standards. Even the ink I use to sign our prints is acid free.

I’m not comparing myself with the great masters of photography, but consider that during the many years that Edward Weston and Ansel Adams were active, you could have bought one of their prints for a few hundred dollars (at most). These prints sell for tens of thousands of dollars at auction today.

If you have any questions about this print&#151or anything photographic for that matter&#151please email me (harold [at] or give me a call at 510.528.9977.

For those who’ve asked me: If you are interested in the February print Stars My Destination, it is still available while we have some on hand.
