A client requested a large fine-art print of the f/13 variant of “Tulips 10” from my Nikon D800E + Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO-Sonnar tulips shoot (signed and numbered gallery wrap prints are available).
The proof is gorgeous—I’m thrilled— canvas printed well and properly coated has a look that to my eye beats any conventional matted-and-glassed presentation. For this image, I used the glossy finish that Picture Element offers. (Be clear that uncoated canvas is not particularly attractive and that the kind of finish/coating is essential to the final result, so throw away your preconceptions if you’ve been disappointed with canvas in the past).
The image below is a scan of a proof using my cheap Epson Workforce flatbed scanner. The scanner did a good job overall, but it picks up some reflections from the texture of the canvas (these are not seen by eye when viewing the print). The scan is slightly cropped since the scanner cannot accommodate 15 X 10.
