Photographing Artwork

Artwork Reproduction -Making Prints from Originals

Getting your work photographed professionally in our studio will ensure you get the best possible results for your giclée prints. No matter how stunning the original artwork or how good a printer and paper combination you choose for printing your images, you first need to accurately capture the colour and detail in your image. 

We take high-resolution digital photographs of your image under particular lighting. Using the digital image, we match the colours on screen as close as we can to your original piece, which enables us to print high-quality reproductions of your work. 

PROCESS

Our first step is a quick consultation with you and your original artwork, to advise you of the options and what kind of results you can expect. We’ll choose the right lighting to get the best reproductions of colour and detail, and remove any unwanted reflections.

 

We’ve put together a high-resolution camera, lens and lighting combination that produces accurate results for artwork reproduction, by minimising digital noise and distortion whilst capturing the highest amount of detail possible. .

 

Once we’ve captured the image in a raw format, we post-process each one by eye, looking for areas that may need retouching, as well as making colour corrections. Many specific requests can be accommodated during the retouching process.

We’ll keep a copy of your image on file for at least a year, or longer on request, which means you can order repeat prints once you’ve signed off your proof. You will also receive a high-resolution copy of the image.
