I’ve always wanted to shoot the Memphis skyline, but most try to shoot from the west bank of the river back east towards the city. Thing is, unless you have a boat, it’s hard to get a good position on the far side to make the shot. I stumbled onto this location while attending a party. I knew after seeing the skyline in the distance that THIS would be a fantastic shot. All I needed was the right time and the right weather. Numerous plans fell through as the weather failed to cooperate – rain, overcast, a bland sky; all ruined any chance of a good photograph. Finally, the weather broke, the sky had streaks of red and blue, the timing worked, and I got the shot I wanted. This looks amazing either in print, metal, or canvas. Contact me to order yours today! Smallest size available is 20 x 60 due to the immense detail and size of the photo (130 megapixels)!
Traditional prints have long been the norm, then came gallery wrapped prints on canvas. Now there is something relatively new available – printing on metal. Aluminum, to be exact. When I heard about this at first I was not sure how it would look – I imagined a metallic sheen or color shifts. It couldn’t possibly look better than a traditional print or wrap, could it?
Absolutely. The vibrancy and color of my prints on metal have been nothing short of spectacular. Plus, no framing. Most metal prints come with built in hardware that “floats” the photo off the wall for a gorgeous 3D look. Once you receive your print just open the box and hang it on your wall! The prints don’t fade nor will they smear – it’s actually infused into the metal. Use a damp cloth to dust it and you are good to go! Of course, there is a place for gallery wraps and traditional prints too if you prefer the look – contact me for pricing and print packages!!
Whew – now that I’ve spent a ton of time working out the look and feel of the website, I think it’s starting to come together. Can’t say enough good things about themify.me and their Word Press themes. Their online support has been excellent, answering all of my questions within 24hours. Still going through photo albums and uploading content. PLUS – I just upgraded to Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5.2 and am exploring the new features. Now to reinstall all of my filters and plug-ins…….
Well, it’s taking longer than I’d like to get the website 100%. Knowing what I want and accomplishing it are very different things. I’m getting closer….. Back to reading.
FIRST post to the blog! Learning WordPress and customizing the theme is taking some time but it’s been pretty straightforward. I got my theme from Themify.me and really love it so far. All of my install questions have been answered by simple searches or checking out the how-to videos. Still, lots of work to be done before I have everything complete. I’ll post more updates as I go.
