ABOUT THE PHOTO:
As a photographer, I am always looking for amazing light. Not just amazing light, but unique light. Not just unique light, but also a subject to compliment that light. And not just a subject, but a composition that compliments the light and the subject. I could go on.
As I watched the sun go down, the anticipation grew. "Will this be a sunset worth the wait?" "Will this fizzle out?" "Is this the one?" All I could do it wait. The sun dropped behind the horizon, still nothing. As darkness began taking over, I was just about to pack up and leave, my hopes withering, when a spark of fire ignited just above the ridge.
I paused... Could this be the one? I made sure all was set, camera, tripod, settings and lens. Composition and focus locked in... I waited. The fire grew, its tentacles stretching out, filling the sky. I waited. The fire grew more, the tentacles of flame connecting to create a wave of fire across the sky.
Yet, I still waiting. It was coming... The fire exploded across the sky lighting up the world once again, a wisp of clouds across the top imitating smoke. The perfect firelight.
I pressed the shutter.
Images are infused into specially coated surfaces, providing the most durable and longest lasting print medium. The aluminum panels are extremely durable, offering scratch and abrasion resistance without hiding your image behind glass. Sublimation metal also offers the highest fade resistance compared to every other photo medium.
Dye-sublimation printing is a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto many materials. In order to transfer the image from the paper to the aluminum, it requires a heat press process that is a combination of time, temperature and pressure. The heat press applies this special combination, to “transfer” the sublimation dyes at the molecular level into the aluminum.
The images are fade resistant- the latest testing shows they will last a lifetime with resistance to yellowing and climate damage. They are chemical resistant- the surfaces can be cleaned with ammonia, bleach, acetone or any all-purpose cleaner. The images are also moisture resistant.
The aluminum is .045" thick and is finished with a float mount on the back for hanging. The Aluminum panels are lightweight, durable, and made with recycled material and 100% recyclable.
