When a Santa Fe amature photographer wanted to surprise his wife with a special gift, he took his smart-phone photographs from a memorable trip in Sedona, Arizona to Graphic Sky Printing and asked what they could do. He reviewed the various media available and decided on a stretched canvas print. His images were resized and fine-tuned for brightness, contrast, and color balance, with attention to areas where the shadows and highlights were too intense.
The photograph was printed on canvas and, stretched to a wood frame. The photographer was delighted when he picked up his canvas—so much so that he order two smaller versions of the same image to be printed and stretched for gifts.
