Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a print cost, and how can I get one?
Pricing varies with the size of the print. Please see our price list for details. All of our prints are made to order and are available through our online store. If you wish to purchase a print, simply click on the image in one of our galleries and select "Add to Cart." You will then be able to either proceed with your purchase or continue to browse through our galleries.

Can I get my print on glossy paper?
While we can make prints using glossy papers, our workflow is geared towards fine-art prints. As a result, glossy prints may require additional turn-around time since they would require careful calibration and contrast adjustment. Please contact us directly for a quote if you prefer a glossy look to your photographic prints.

What equipment do you use to take your pictures?
We use Nikon digital SLR's and lenses for image capture and Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigments for printing.

Are those colors real, or did you just do it in Photoshop?
Please see our editorial policy for a detailed explanation of what we will and won't do in Photoshop. In general, unless you see a disclaimer in the detailed description of a particular photograph, the colors, tones, and saturation levels are all "real."

Why aren't all images available in all sizes?
Any camera and lens combination has limitations in terms of resolution and contrast. As print sizes grow, many of our photographs can bump up against these limits—particularly if lighting conditions were poor or the subject was dynamic. If we feel that a particular image will not look crisp and sharp at a particular print size, we do not offer that size for sale. This helps ensure that all of our prints meet the highest quality standards.

Why does my print look a little different from the web image?
There could be a couple of reasons.  First, very few monitors are color calibrated to accurately represent the colors contained in an image.  Unless your monitor has been calibrated, there is a good chance that hues and tones will be slightly shifted. Second, the contrast range of a good monitor is in the neighborhood of 300:1, while fine-art papers are closer to 70:1. This diminished contrast can create a slightly different look to the print. Finally, differences in standard paper aspect ratios may require cropping that is slightly different from that presented on this website. All prints at Resolution Photography are carefully crafted using a calibrated monitor and custom profiles and proofing tools to ensure the best quality print.
