Fine Art Edition Prints

I have recently added a new printer into my studio, the new Epson 3800. And as such, I am now offering my Fine Art Edition Prints. The prints I'm offering are all printed on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Photo Rag Bright White paper. This paper is acid free and exceeds ISO Standard 9706, museums and galleries prefer this paper over any other.

My prints look like the one shown here, the type on the front of the print contains print information and copyright notices. This information is easily covered over when matted and framed. An example of each are here for your review.

I'll be adding these prints for sale on my web site as soon as possible, Deb is real busy working on other clients web sites. As soon as I can, I will be posting images for sale there as well as here.

Surgery with DaVinci

I was recently asked by a local hospital to photograph a surgery which was using the new DaVinci machine. The DaVince machine is seen here in the foreground, the surgeon using the machine is looking into a 3 dimensional view of the patient prostrate.

The surgeon working on the DaVinci machine move the controls real time and the surgical tools above the patient move in tern. Cool beans.

As far as lighting is concerned, I placed on the floor between the surgeons legs a Nikon SB-800 with the diffusion dome on. I placed another SB-800 on the floor pointed towards the patient. This strobe also had the diffusion dome on the strobe head. Both strobes where fired using the Nikon SU-800 command unit. I was able to control both strobes right from behind the camera.
