Maple Wood Prints by Bay Photo Lab
What’s one of the freshest ways to present your images in a relaxed and uncontrived style? On Maple Wood! I’ve been shooting a lot more travel images lately along with environmental portraits, and they especially lend themselves to the Maplewood flavor. It is beautifully earthy and warm.
But it works for portraits too, even close up faces! Because there are two ways to print, you can pick what works for your image. The white or very light areas show through the color and grain of the wood beautifully, for a very natural look, but if it is a face, or a pretty sky, sometimes you don’t really want the grain to show. So that’s when you choose a white underlay that not only blocks the wood grain from showing through but cleans up the color shift (warmth) per se for a cleaner more neutral look.
The other thing I like is the variable edges width. While the wood doesn’t need framing (the nice wood grain on the edges looks great and has a drilled hangar), it looks nicely finished with the image printed smaller than the finished piece, with options of ¼” to 2” borders to choose from! You CAN do it flush with no border, but in my opinion, it looks more finished the other way. J I am excited to present a fresh new photographic product for my clients’ home décor and for my own artistic images!
For outdoor portraits and stylized landscape images, I feel the Maple Wood is a perfect, earthy presentation, where studio or modern images lend themselves to a more polished presentation like metal or acrylic.
