632 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo of a redwood forest; fine art nature photo created by Justin Katz in Montgomery Woods State Reserve, California

Walking Among Giants

632 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Montgomery Woods State Reserve, California

The Montgomery Redwood Grove is one of only a handful of old-growth redwood groves that were protected from the heavy logging that took place in Northern California in the early 20th century. After the 1906 earthquake, the fires that consumed all of San Francisco meant that the city had to be rebuilt, and that meant lumber. Where there used to be endless groves of gigantic coastal redwoods throughout the Pacific Northwest, now there are only a handful left, preserved by forward-thinking land owners.

How to you capture scale? How do you convey in a photograph the true sense of how enormous the ancient coastal redwood trees of Northern California are? The truth is that it is only in displaying this VAST Print at such large sizes, as only VAST photos are capable of, that this sense of scale and enormity of these ancient trees can be appreciated.

My goal with this VAST photo was to recreate a sense of what it is like to actually walk amongst these magnificent, giant redwood trees. When displayed as a VAST Print on a wall, the viewer can feel like they are there, standing among the giant redwoods. The goal to create this sensation is is what drove me to capture this scene.

Our ready-to-hang canvas prints are created using a specialty printer that carefully lays pigment inks down onto archival-quality fine art canvas material.

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
Optionally accompanied by your choice of elegant floater frame available in a variety of trims

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.
