Fine Art Photography
by Dan Chavez, Tucson, AZ
The advent of Digital Photography has revolutionized the photographic arts and has ushered in an era of new techniques greatly expanding the range of artistic expression. Mixed Media Fine Art Photography involves the integration of photography, digital images and the personal computer. Applying the basic principles of color, composition and design, the photographer is able to re-master original photographs in a virtual darkroom cropping, editing, lightening and darkening the image then digitally applying layers of brush strokes and other art effects in varying degrees and intensities. Each print is processed individually with close attention to detail, color, contrast and density using state of the art technology to expose the image to exacting standards. The final limited edition print is sealed with a UV and moisture resistant Giclée varnish; only archival quality pigmented inks and canvas are used to insure the very best image stability.
