Driftwood in Jordan Pond

178 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Acadia National Park, Maine

I took this VAST photo of a fallen spruce tree over Jordan Pond in Acadia National Park, Maine, on October 1, 2014, 11:21 AM. Ice thawing in the spring every year has moved the log from its original location further up the pond. The wind was gusting to about 20mph at times, so I used a 10-stop neutral density filter to allow me to use a slower shutter speed to blur the trees and water, but still allow me to use a wide aperture for a shallow depth of field, or “bokehrama”. I focused on the middle of the tree in the pond and let everything else fade out of focus.

Camera settings: 200mm, f/4, ISO 100, 8 seconds.

Stitching data: 3 rows of 10 images.

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Promote Control, B+W 10-stop ND filter, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod w/ leveling base & pano/gimbal head. RAW conversion to 16-bit TIFF via Lightroom, aligned via AutoPano Giga, and blended in Photoshop.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.
