THE EVOLUTION BEGINS
Follow along in the process of local photographer Dan Dunlop's exhibit in the Penstock Lounge of the Elora Mill & Spa.
We have already verified lighting in Penstock Lounge, and are making minor adjustments for lighting then creating hard proofs prior to final prints. As you see here in the photographed consultation process.
In the image below, you see the 2nd part of the printing process. We run a hard proof of the image, letting it dry overnight (Matte prints, canvas or fine art paper requires "outgassing" to properly evaluate the print). Local photographer Dan Dunlop is holding the "hard proof" under the proofing light which is set for lighting conditions for the wall/location where that specific print will hang.
Dan approved the proof and we are good to go to final print!
Note: Overhead lighting was used just to take this image of us (Paul & Dan). Editing and proofing is done in a dimly lit room (see the blackout shade covering the window).
Printed and hung to dry (outgas)
Here you can see in the video, the prints hanging to dry overnight. The following day they will be sprayed with 2 coats minimum of a UV veneer protectant.
Glamour II Veneer UV Spray Protectant
Below you can see the spraying process of a print. The protectant is applied to the canvas using a Fuji spray system, when applied appears milky white that dries to clear finish.
It helps protect the image against moisture, abrasion and image fading.
