GiRoPhoto Print Service
UPDATE: Metallic Paper media now available, achieve that amazing finish of old cibachrome images now using high – quality inkjet technology.
Just a reminder to everyone out there, either friends or colleagues in the photography industry. After owning an Epson 7900 large format printer for a little over a year, I would like to offer it out as a print service. Many people have images from a holiday or once in a lifetime moment and were lucky to catch it on camera but have never done anything with the image. I can offer you a quality print using either canvas or photo paper in gloss, satin or matte finish. Prints in colour or if you want the image converted to black and white I can achieve this for you as well.
Check out my print service page on the website and contact me if you want to get that image off of the computer onto a wall in your home.
I have been reading and hearing alot of people talking about presenting work in a different way either by using new media or alternative methods . This got me to thinking that I don’t normally see square images very often and wondered why. I decided to go back thru my archive of images selecting some old favourites and making new copies but using a 1:1 ratio to crop the images. This proved quite difficult actually as most images didn’t lead to a good composition or view in the square format.
Some of the images created happened to work better than others but most either were lacking something or were no better than the originals. Then I went out shooting with a direct intention of framing images for a 1:1 crop. This latter practice did result in a better image, probably because I was looking for compositions that were more appealling to this format. What did I find? It seems that the old rule of never placing your subject in the centre of the image worked best when broken. It may have something to do with symmetry as subjects placed off side usually left an image being unbalanced.
So after spending some time on thinking about it and looking at images, I have decided to print of a number of canvas prints and have put them up in a local cafe where I have been displaying images for a while. The cafe is SeaChange cafe in Dee Why on The Strand right down on the beach front. All work is for sale and if you cannot get to the cafe, then check out this Square Image gallery to view work online.
Love to hear thoughts and opinions.
