Colorado National Monument is a well kept secret in the National Park system. It is filled with awe inspiring scenery and vast expanses. I shot this photograph with a Fujifilm X-E1 converted to infrared. In post processing, I desaturated most of the color and toned it with sepia. The dark sky is typical of IR photography and one of the things I like best about it. There are several other IR photos in the gallery called A Southwestern Journey.
One of a Kind
You can purchase a one of a kind, original print of this image directly from the artist by contacting me via email. The picture is signed and the mat has a hand drawn remarque in graphite. The paper and inks are archival and the printing is done under my direct supervision.
An original print is one on which I have personally supervised the process. It is printed on archival paper using archival inks. I hand sign the piece and draw a remarque on the mat that in some way reflects the original image. This small original drawing adds aesthetic interest as well as value to the print. In the case of �Monument Canyon Monolith� I might draw a jackrabbit, a prickly pear or some other related objects in graphite.
An original print is a higher value collector's piece because of the additional care and handling. It differs from the prints that are sold by Fine Art America by virtue of the quality of materials, the signature and the remarque. Its increased value to the collector is in its one of a kind status.
I frame the image using gallery molding - clean, square wood molding in either black, white, natural or walnut stain. It has a contemporary look that gives the piece a professional finish.
Each piece can now be printed using a dye sublimation process on aluminum. The finish is water resistant, scratch resistant and has better anti-fade properties than images printed on the highest quality photo paper. Pricing is comparable with framed work. The remarque would not be available on a metal print.
Shipping & Handling are based on zip code. I can give you a specific price when I know the destination. The size of the image is 24x36. The mat and frame add to the size. The finished piece is approximately 30x40.
Additionally, prints of all of my photos can be purchased directly from me in various sizes that include a signature, a remarque and custom framing. Please contact me by email for details and pricing.
In the case of metal prints where a remarque is not feasible, I produce and include in the package, a graphite drawing on high quality archival paper that relates to the photo in way that is consistent with a remarque.
