Northwest Lady Fern

523 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Snoqualmie Falls Park, Snoqualmie, Washington

You might say that this close-up examination of the Northwest Lady Fern grew organically. It was during a early summer hike through a temperate rainforest that I had the whim to collect a handful of leaves. It was the time of year when the forest's understory is exploding with new life, and infinite shades of green are virtually leaping up from the soil. After some early experiments, I found fascinating results when the leaves were photographed on a light-table with specialty macro lenses. Eventually, the concept called for an exploration into the finest detail available and I employed the new 100 Megapixel Hasselblad H6D-100c Medium Format Camera with the incredibly sharp 120mm macro lens. Compositing multiple frames from what is already one of the three highest resolution cameras available, I was able to create images which both display the leaves as seen at a glance, and, when examined closely, reveal patterns of intricate detail and wonderful design. To this day, I am no longer able to walk through a forest without turning over at least one new leaf.

Our canvas material has a delightfully matte finish that looks spectacular in any lighting conditions while retaining maximum vibrancy and contrast. Click here to learn more.

Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience

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.
