HAMPTONSHIRE FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
I just want to thank you for visiting my website.
I am a Northamptonshire based mobile photographer my aim is to provide amazing, professional results with the end product exceeding expectations guaranteed !!
We only use professional studio equipment/editing software and printers to provide you with the very best photos or videos.
Photos in the store area are available to buy for websites or to keep and print for yourself.
All of our photographs are Giclée prints.
Giclée printing is Museum and Gallery quality printing.
We only use Museum and Archival / Gallery grade premium photo papers, that when used together will last for generations. (please look this information up here.)
The word Giclée (“g-clay”), is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”. Giclée, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper to achieve Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
Our Giclée prints are created using Canons 12 ink professional Pro Series printers that are capable of producing an extremely wide tonal range and colour gamut.
This photo and ink combination give out the finest quality printed photographs possible.
There are at least three basic criteria that must be met in order for a print to be considered a true Giclée.
1: Images printed as a Giclée need to be created at a resolution of no less than 300 dots per inch (DPI). In the case of a photo or conventional artwork reproduction, that means that the camera or scanner used to capture the image or scan the artwork must be able to do so at 300 DPI.
2: For Giclee printing, the paper or substrate used to print the final piece must be of archival quality. Any professional series paper will probably indicate if it is archival quality on the box.
3:The last element in a true Giclee print is the type of ink and printer used. The biggest contrast between a standard inkjet print and a Giclee print is that Giclee are printed using pigment-based inks rather than the dye-based inks found in lower-cost inkjets. Pigment-based inks have a longer lifespan, and can last anywhere from 100 to 200 years without significant fading
