To purchase prints please visit your local fine art gallery or contact us:

* Nominal print size is based on the initial size of the unprocessed paper. The actual size of the print is typically one-half to one inch less than the listed size in each dimension to allow for trimming of the paper to final size, and more to accommodate differing negative aspect ratios.

** Not available for all images – at the discretion of the artist and on request.

Purchase

All Range of Light limited edition fine art photographic prints currently in stock may now be purchased worldwide on Amazon Handmade. As the Handmade marketplace is primarily set up for single print purchase, multiple print purchases may also be purchased directly from the artist at significant savings both in individual prints and shipping/handling costs. Please contact us if you wish to take advantage of direct/multiple sales or see a print within this site's galleries that is not available within the Range of Light Handmade store inventory.

Process

Making a Fine Art PrintRange of Light black and white fine art photographs are classic, traditionally produced gelatin silver prints (GSP). Each photograph is optically enlarged from mostly medium and large format film onto expensive double or triple weight, fiber-based photographic papers of light sensitive silver-rich emulsions to a desired size. Manipulation of projected light during the enlarging process (i.e., dodging and burning) is done separately on each print to even out tonalities and bring out the maximum brilliance of the GSP. These manipulations of light, together with the initial light exposure reflects the hand of the artist unique to each and every print. Prints are washed to current archival standards and toned in selenium for maximum image stability (or occasionally other toners for effect). Each print is dry-mounted onto white 4-ply (mural sizes may be mounted on 8-ply), 100% cotton, acid-free, neutral pH, buffered museum board. A dramatic white 8-ply beveled-window of 100% cotton, acid-free, neutral pH, buffered museum board floats the print for final presentation of the photograph.

Range of Light color photographs are in the main, produced by what is generally known throughout the industry as a hybrid process. Images are recorded onto traditional photographic films with traditional medium and large format cameras (as opposed to digital). The resulting transparencies and negatives are then scanned digitally to extremely high resolution. Photographic papers are exposed with LED or laser light sources using red, blue, and green light directed by the scan and processed chemically to give a print which surpasses optically-enlarged color prints in color fidelity and visual clarity. Prints are then hinge-mounted using acid-free archival linen tape onto white acid-free foam core board and finally overmatted with dramatic white 8-ply, 100% cotton, acid-free, neutral pH, museum board beveled-windows to complete presentation.

Limited Editions

Each image from a single Range of Light negative is limited to 100 fine art prints total. This includes any and all sizes printed to allow maximum flexibility in terms of size.

Sizes

Range of Light fine art gelatin silver prints are available in standard sizes* of 11"x14", 16"x20" and 20"x24", based upon the longest dimension. Mural sizes** of 24"x30" and 30"x40" are available at the artist's discretion. These nominal sizes are based on the initial size of the unprocessed paper. The actual size of each print is typically one-half to one inch less than the listed size in each dimension to allow for trimming of the paper to final size, and occasionally more to accommodate differing negative aspect ratios. Additionally, the following final print aspect ratios are observed as part of each scene's composition4:5 – Standard Landscape (example) / Portrait (example), 3:5 – Widescreen (example) / Tallscreen (example), and 1:2 – Panorama (example).

Provenance

Every signed Range of Light print is identified as to title, date, size, negative number, and edition number either on the back of the mat (dry-mounts) or the back of the print itself (hinge-mounts).

Care

A signed, limited edition Range of Light photograph is a one-of-a-kind irreplaceable work of art. It must be protected from possible injury and the elements (and is best presented) by placing it in a suitable frame under appropriate glazing, away from direct sunlight. Matted and unframed prints come in a minimally protective, non-archival, polyethylene bag which should not be used for long term storage. Use cotton gloves when handling prints, and always only by the edges to avoid fingerprint damage to both print and mat. Fine prints may have minor imperfections and variances characteristic of any handmade artistic endeavor. Prints are permanently attached to the mounts in a dry-mounting process - and should remain so indefinitely. In the unlikely event that the print becomes detached from the mounting board do not attempt to reattach with adhesive or by any other means. Take the mounted print to a qualified art restorer or photo technician for reattachment. A properly cared for and displayed Range of Light GSP should last for generations.
