Carrie Furnace is one of the last blast furnaces in existence (out of service) located in Rankin, Pa. A monstrous installation, I rented the facilities for a number of hours for personal exploration and photographing. With my guide Ron from the Rivers of Steel Organization I set out on quite an adventure. So much to see and soak up, this an an example of the majesty of a historical site fallen into disrepair. The facilities are in the process of becoming a historical site for exploration by the public, at some point in the future.

Photographed April 13th, 2011 . . .

All images are printed with a border for framing purposes. For example, a 6x8 image would be printing on an 8x10 sheet of paper (ensuring at least 1 inch borders on either side of the widest aspect of the print). Maximum printed images (12x18 inches) are printed on 13x19 sheets, meaning half an inch of border on either side of the print. Shorter end borders fall where they fall on the print. It's all about maintaining proportions.

Technical Babble
This image was composed at a high resolution (200mb plus for you tech heads), allowing small to large fine art prints retaining image integrity. Canon EOS 5D with Canon EF 24-105mm f4 lens were the only imaging equipment used in the creative process.

Print production is accomplished in-house using the Canon Pixma Pro-100 pigment inkjet printer. Utilizing an 8 color ink system the Pixma Pro-100 generates prints with a wide color gamut. 21 years of professional digital production experience has led to comfort when producing high end fine art prints. Understanding output technology while enforcing quality control and standards is of utmost importance. Color correction is accomplished with pre-press color values (numerics being a more precise methodology for a neutralized cast, from screen to print).

Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique Media is the main paper of choice, a vegan friendly heavyweight fiber paper. Additionally, the Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique Media is the ONLY choice available for greeting cards, no exceptions!

Additional paper options for flat reproductions are as follows:
Moab - Colorado Fiber Satine . . . subtle mesh of semi gloss and matte finish
Moab - Slickrock Metallic Pearl . . . metallic pearlescent paper/glossy finish

Prints are placed in either rigid mailers or mailing tubes (dependent on print size). USPS Priority Shipping is the shipping preference - tracking offering peace of mind for all parties.
