Print of the Month Photograph Number Sixty Eight
Sabrina Lake Sunrise
(copyright logo not present on actual fine art print)
This month's photograph is stunning!
The print is fabulous.
The 68th Alain Briot Print of the Month photograph is titled Sabrina Lake.
This image was created with my Phase One P45 Digital Back mounted on a Hasselblad V camera. The lens used is a Zeiss 150mm.
The photograph was taken at sunrise, on a cold October morning. It had snowed a couple of days before and some snow remained on the mountains and along the lake. We arrived at that location in the dark, and I started photographing as soon as there was enough light to see the trees. I worked for over an hour, stopping only after the first light appeared at the top of the mountain. At that time direct light started showing in the image and I stopped because I preferred to have the entire scene in open shade.
You can see the first rays of sunlight striking the top of the mountain on the reflection at bottom right.
In regards to processing I desaturated the lake and the mountain to have a neutral grey and white color. I wanted this to create a contrast of color between the lake, the mountain and the fall colors in the trees along the lake. Saturated olors are more noticeable when it is present in certain areas and not on the entire image. Colors stand out more when they contrast with neutral grey area.
The Master File for this image is provided to you on a CD which ships with the artwork at no extra cost. This master file shows you how I optimized this image. Information about the photograph, including exposure time, lens used and other technical details --basically all you need to know to create this image yourself if you want to-- are also provided in a separate file on the CD. If you are not familiar with what a master file is make sure to read my essay on this subject.
This photograph is available framed and unframed. It is hand signed on the mat and the print. The frame is a handmade Mahogany Finish Frame. The moulding is truly magnificent and does emphasize the beauty of this image. The photograph I took of the moulding show very closely how beautiful this presentation is. However, these pieces looks much better in reality than a web photograph can show! You just won't believe your eyes when you receive yours. All the framing materials used are Museum Quality, archival supplies. All my work is guaranteed for life in regard to fading and damage caused by framing materials.
Framed pieces are delivered in a stunning mahogany finish frame.
