I am offering prints of my landscape images for sale. I will be personally taking care of fulfilling these orders via my print provider, CanvasPop. CanvasPop uses the best quality canvas: a 16-inch x 25-inch matte-textured, 20.5 mils bright white, consistent poly-cotton blend. The quality canvas prints are designed to last over 100 years without fading. CanvasPop finishes every canvas print with a protective scratch-resistant UV laminate to make sure the print stays sharp for life.

Each print arrives ready to hang out of the box and includes everything you need to hang the print, including gallery-strength piano wire and protective rubber bumpers.

This is one of the first prints I shall be offering. Your purchase of a print will help me continue to improve my craft. Once you click the link, you will be taken to the CanvasPop web where you can see the print size and pricing options.

I released these two iPhone images as Creative Commons Zero (CC0) images via Unsplash. They were both shots at Rodanthe Beach on a tripod using the Slow Shutter Cam app on my iPhone. I think a VSCO Cam filter was applied but I don't remember.

This is the Nikon version of one of the images I captured with my iPhone 6 and the Slow Shutter app. I like the magenta-blue sky. I find blues relaxing and that's how I felt walking along the beach early in the morning.

The images were all shot on a tripod at three exposures (−2÷0÷2) and combined in Photomatix Pro with the Natural preset to create an HDR.

I removed several sensor spots in Adobe Lightroom and then applied the Kodak Gold 100 Warm preset from VSCO Film 00 (grain to zero). In Photoshop, I removed the lamp poles along the pier. I simply felt that this made the image a bit cleaner. I levelled the horizon and added a post-crop vignette by setting the amount to -21, midpoint to 0, and roundness to 51.

Equipment:

  • Nikon D5100
