Saving money without sacrificing beautiful art

When you have a canvas made from Canvas Press, you receive a high quality Giclee print of your photograph or artwork. This is a great way to decorate your home and in these tough economic times where nothing is certain, it can be a huge cost savings to get art on your walls that looks great. A new customer of ours in Georgia has started doing this now, here is what he had to say:

 

I just received my canvas print this morning which was shipped to my place of work. I did not open it at work but was so excited about it that I took it home during lunch to hang it. WOW! I was very surprised and impressed at the quality of the print! I was a little concerned because this was my first Canvas Print and the dpi on the on-line template was not the highest but was above the minimum where you will guarantee the quality. I was not sure if I would see any pixelation or not. The size of the print is 44x26 so it is a fairly large print. It more than met my expectations!

The quality is excellent and looks very professional. The packaging was superb and very professional as well. Very easy to hang with the supplied hardware.

I wanted something new for above my settee in my foyer and started looking around for some art in galleries such as limited edition Giclee's but they were all more than I wanted to spend right now with the economy. So, I decided to use one of my own photographs to help bring some color into the space. I've been into photography for about 20 years as a hobby and this particular photograph is from the garden on Victoria Island, British Columbia right off of coast of Vancouver. I liked the color and the way the out-of-focus red geraniums gave it a slight impressionistic feel and made it look like a piece of art.

Now I have a piece of my own "art" on my wall in lieu of spending more than a thousand dollars on someone else's Giclee.

I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thank you,

Rob

Tips-n-Tricks #387

To photograph food well think about presentation and light. Use clean uncluttered backdrops and study other food photographers work to incorporate things you like (ie textures, and plating). Lighting is critical so start off using window light to photograph your food before stepping up to studio lights.
