ABOUT CANVAS PRINTMAKER
Panoramic canvas prints are stunning to look at and work particularly well with landscapes, but why stop there? There are so many different ideas that you can print on to panorama prints. Group shots of weddings work well on large canvas prints. As do large canvas prints of children and you can even get quite creative with tight crops on photos or even stretch your Photoshop abilities and produce a work of art.
The very nature of all large format canvas prints require good composition, good lighting and a flare for capturing the moment. Considering that the very nature of all panorama prints is detail, your work will be studied and scrutinised in the finest of detail. At large sizes this becomes particularly apparent and we can help you achieve the best results from this, whether it is sharpening the image, enhancing the detail, colour balancing or adjusting the shadows and highlights - we will do our up most to make sure you get the best result.
In the past if you required to get enough detail to print panoramas you had to use either 120 roll film and shoot anything up to 14cm x 6cm negs / transparencies or resort to 5"x4" negs / transparencies to get the results you required. The same was true with digital - telephoto lens, expensive cameras, mega-mega pixels etc. Not any more! (Film purists may want to skip the next paragraph.)
Now-a-days Photoshop is your main player with the ability to join many pictures together quite easily. As long as all the images overlap, have been taken at the same time of day and the lighting is not too dissimilar then it is possible to very accurately join many images together seamlessly. The big advantage here is that although you might not have a state of the art camera, by doing this each frame that you join has enough mega pixels in it to make a giant canvas print which is much larger than the most expensive cameras. It can be a little tricky to join sometimes as the lighting is not always correct (or something moved in the shot - like a bird) but providing you check carefully you can achieve stunning results on large canvas prints quite cheaply. The picture of Antarctica (above) is a classic example of this method being utilised and resulted in a canvas print 60" wide! Pretty good going considering the price tag of the kit.
As for film - yes we can scan both 120 and 5"x4" negs / transparencies in to produce stunning results on large canvas prints. We do this all the time with National Galleries and their picture library.
