Archival ink not only renders beautiful colors and lively black & white tones, but also eliminates the worry of premature fading. To stay consistent, all David’s prints are printed on the finest paper often seen in Museum collections and private fine art photography collections. The paper is premium fiber based and non-fiber based. Fiber base prints are known to keep the same look for 100 years. Non-fiber based paper, not quite that long.
As a purest, David does not believe in digital manipulating an image to make it something totally different from what was seen through the camera’s view finder. Restoration and editing that changes the character of an image is a pet peeve of David. The only time a change is made to an image is when an object is a major distraction to the overall photograph and primary subject within the image. For example maybe a fallen tree limb or excessive twigs is a distraction, taking away from the final print or the story of the print.
