Crystal Cove State Beach

1,405 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Newport Beach, California

This huge VAST photo is the most challenging composition in my portfolio to date. My goal was to create a VAST photo of Crystal Cove Beach in Southern California… at a high enough resolution make an incredibly large 50ft. x 8ft. wall print. That aspect ratio was almost an insurmountable challenge.

My first three attempts at photographing the beach did not produce enough width to cover the span and there wasn’t enough compelling detail to the water side of the image to justify continuing in that direction with the camera. The fourth attempt provided the break that I was looking for. It came in the form of ‘low tide’. The ocean significantly retreated to reveal the trademark rock formations of the coastline that Crystal Cove Beach is known for.

Strategically timing multiple images of the water action at each camera position was necessary to facilitate the difficult job of blending the ocean images together into one amazing composition.

The final VAST photo is one that I’m very proud of – and one that looks truly stunning as a large-format, wide-aspect-ratio wall covering.

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
