The Story Behind This Shot:

Halloween was captured during a perfect spring sunset in Curl Curl –  Australia in 2014. It was one of those afternoons where the summer on-shore winds had destroyed the surf and it was time for me to turn my lens away from the ocean get creative. I was about to pack and leave when I saw this girl taking a photo fo the sunset with her phone in the distance. I ran like a crazy man down the dunes back onto the beach to get low enough to capture her silhouette. I must have looked ridiculous running down the beach lying down low onto the sand shooting the sky. Oh and guess what day it was? Yep Halloween. I don’t think photographers really need to dress up for the occasion… we’re weird scary enough as it is.

Captured with the Olympus E-M1 and M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO.

 

Read below for more information on the print and how it’s made. It’s a rather cool and unique process and the wood texture definitely adds great character to the shot!

 

Description

Through their unique process of printing photographs directly on wood, they create high quality images that utilize the natural wood grain of each piece of Baltic Birch Wood.  The inks used are not only extremely durable, but they are also very transparent the lighter the ink the more wood grain you’ll be able to see.  Have a look at the image to the right and you’ll be able to see the lighter colors bring out the grain, while the darker colors block the grain completely.  You’re also able to see the entire tint of the image change slightly, and this is because we’re printing onto a natural piece of wood.

 

Baltic birch wood is used, which is produced in the good ol’ US of A.  Baltic birch is a great wood, it has a beautiful grain which shows through each and every wood print that’s printed.  The wood is harvested for construction purposes only, which means that the natural forest is not harmed in the manufacturing of the wood panels.  The wood is constructed by laminating layers of birch veneer together, making our product 3/4″ thick.  The side of the wood is then beveled at a 45 degree angle which gives the piece a nice dimension.  Classic Wood Prints have also designed a hanging system which makes it simple and easy to install.
