What is Fine Art Portrait Photography?
Fine art portrait photography is designed to be a piece of art. Fine Art Photographers use backdrops, props, accessories, and special lighting equipment to create fine art from their images. Fine art photographers are artists, and a lot of effort and skill goes into creating these portraits.
Why fine art portraits are expensive to make?
Fine art portraits are expensive because it is expensive to make them. Every portrait is unique, a one-of-a-kind piece of art created just for you, and this will be reflected in the price too. Fine Art Photographers use backdrops, props, accessories, and special lighting equipment to create fine art from their images. Fine art portraits are created with careful editing and color adjustments in post-production using special software.
What materials do you use to make wall art in selected custom packages?*
We use museum-quality materials. The images are printed on fine art archival paper or canvas with a museum quality appearance with matte surface. The printers use an intricate spray process known as giclee which allows for the detail of the original image to be transferred to the print. Tru Vue® Optium Museum Acrylic® (plexi-glass) meets the toughest conservation standards and exceeds the highest curatorial expectations. It is preferred by galleries and museums all around the world. It filters out 99% of harmful UV rays, is lightweight, acid-free, shatter-resistant, anti-static, and anti-reflective.
• Not all packages include museum quality materials. It needs to be specially requested depending on the package.
Why invest in a giclee print?
Giclee prints hold their colour and value for much longer than regular prints. They are known to last approximately 200 years before they start to fade. They are museum-quality prints that are built to last.
Because of their quality, giclee prints are more expensive than regular digital prints.
What is the difference between fine art prints and regular photo prints?
The regular photographic paper has acid in the paper which can make the print fade and crack over time.
Fine art prints on the other hand are made with high-quality archival inks on acid free fine art papers using a high-resolution large format printer. These are also known as fine art giclee prints. Fine art prints made with acid free fine art paper have a lifespan of over a hundred years and usually don't fade, crack or turn yellow.
Why should I consider Fine Art Portraits for myself or my family members?
A fine art portrait is intended for wall art and offers a unique opportunity to feature you or your family members as these images look stunning as framed prints being placed on a wall. These are images you and your family members will cherish for many years to come.
How should we dress for a Fine Art Portrait session?
Solid colors and neutral tones like black, grays, browns, and navy will always look great. Avoid patterns and stripes.
What is a Giclee print?
Giclee prints are high quality, museum-standard and archival fine art prints. The process of giclee printing involves squirting microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto textured paper or canvas.
This is a sophisticated inkjet printing process that blends the use of professional-grade large format printers with archival pigment inks, acid-free watercolor papers, and canvas. This technique renders subtle gradations and many colors that would be out of range with other technologies.
For long lasting professional prints, giclee is the method of choice.
