ARTIST & PROCESS
Richard James is an internationally published fine-art photographer and printmaker. Embracing a digital process from beginning to end, Richard uses Canon digital photographic equipment to capture his images, typically photographing each subject using a variety of angles, focal lengths, and compositions.
Richard digitally processes the images using Adobe Photoshop CC on a Macintosh platform. Each RAW format 23.4 megapixel image is processed at 16 bit/360 megabytes to preserve all detail.
HOW THE GICLEE EDITIONS ARE MADE
Striving to stay true to his artistic vision, Richard fine-tunes each image adding and subtracting elements to create an exceptional photographic print. The final Giclée editions are printed on an Epson Stylus Pro equipped with Epson Archival Ultrachrome Inks. Substrates include: Epson Premium Luster Photographic paper, William Turner textured fine-art watercolor paper, and canvas.
INSURING A LONG PRINT LIFE
The typical lifetime of a Giclée color print is approaching 100 years. Since Giclée printmaking is still a relatively new blend of art and science, we recommend that the print be framed under glass. We also strongly suggest that the placement of the artwork, like any artwork, not be in the path of direct sunlight.
