Predawn Departure On The Oregon Coast Shoreline

I was setting my camera up for a shot from across the street in a motel before the sun arose. I saw some trailing light against the Oregon Coast shoreline coming from a flashlight or more powerful search light. Then the person got into his car and began slowly driving toward the exit directly in front of where I was perched from above. I was intrigued with the car headlights and the dark cavernous blue of the ocean with the big rock in the distance in his predawn departure. I got lucky with this shot though it took a fair amount of work to get the final edit.  Full disclosure: it’s somewhat of a composite picture in that I took 2 different shots taken within seconds of each other from slightly different angles and with different exposures. I rarely make composite images but I liked the exercise and the final outcome was satisfying.

Archival-Quality Prints: A Century of Timeless Memories

These prints are not just images, they can become old friends. Crafted to meet stringent archival standards, the papers and inks we use are designed to last over a century with the right care. Here’s what it means for you:

  • Longevity: Each print is engineered to endure, with a lifespan extending beyond 100 years when kept in optimal conditions.
  • Care Instructions: To maintain image quality:
    ◦ Store unframed prints in an archival-quality container.
    ◦ For framed displays, use archival matting and adhesive, coupled with UV-filtering glass to safeguard against sunlight and environmental damage.
    • Environment Matters: Place your artwork away from direct sunlight and high humidity to maintain its pristine condition.
