A Winter Dream was captured from the turtle pond in downtown Austin, TX. Austin doesn’t see snow, except for an occasional dusting, so I wanted to create a print that has a snowy dreamlike scene. This print is part of my Austin Dreamscapes series in which I use my infrared camera to capture an infrared photograph. This series showcases Austin in a unique and otherworldly way to give us a fun escape from (today’s) reality. Because standard post-processing software does not have the capability to convert an infrared photograph, I created a special camera color profile to allow me to apply a unique infrared color palette to complete my creative vision for this scene.
This luxury high gloss metal fine art print is produced using a technology called sublimation. Sublimation is where inks are infused directly into specially coated metal sheets (aluminum panels). The result of this specialized process are printed images with stunning color, vibrancy, unrivaled resolution and a stunning glass-like luminescence finish. The image quality of aluminum prints created using this process has been tested to have a longevity of 4 times that of paper. Metal prints are also surprisingly light and have a durability that is unmatched in the fine art print world; they are scratch, fade and water resistant.
