It is an 16"x24" metallic photographic print, matted in a double mat with the main mat in white and the narrow reveal mat in black. The frame is wide black matte metal and is 23.5"x31.5". The image is under glass, not plexi.
The image was created in November 2006 in Yellowstone National Park, in Montana. It is of blown snow on a parking lot pull off ... it was so cold and windy that day, but there was this little piece of nature's magic beauty. The print is really interesting ... full of silver and gold flecks. This piece gets a lot of attention at shows because it is so 3-D ... at first glance, it can appear to be sand. Midnight Blue does not appear in the actual print.
Please come bid on it for a great cause!!

Lately, though, Jaree has been craving using a constant light source when in studio, instead of flash ... but the traditional studio "hot" lights are not the answer ... we have been watching the development of the new LED studio lights - when they get to a reasonable cost, awesome!! There are also some compact florescent light sets out there ... we may try one and see how we like it.
Our advice, photography is all about light, so just like a painter would choose their brushes, take your time and choose your lighting tools with thought and care ...

To be printing at this level, we have learned quite a lot ... especially to be sure we have the latest paper profiles, they are very important and we have had to study color management more thoroughly to ensure WYSIWYG.
