FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
Whether using film & the old fashion darkroom techniques or the latest digital technology, a fine art print stands out from the crowd.
The printing process uses fibre base paper that has been pre-coated with light sensitive salts in a gelatin emulsion. The image is projected onto the paper through the negative using a darkroom enlarger.
The paper is then put through a developing solution, a stop bath and a fixer and finally washed clear of all chemicals. All the printing is done by Kim Christopher Welinski at the facilities of point light gallery.
The subtlety and separation of grey tones and the richness of shadow and highlight detail enhances the overall feeling of the
final image. This, together with the outstanding archival quality, makes silver gelatin printing an ideal choice for any black & white photograph.
However, the high quality fine art papers now available for printing allow us to create both colour and monochrome digital images that show similar characteristics to the traditional fibre base papers yet with the flexibility & sophistication that goes beyond that of the darkroom; something that can only come from the use of Adobe Photoshop software.
Whatever your choice, your final print will be something to admire & treasure.
