New Technology for Mounting Fine Art Prints

Jungle Orchid

In the Heart of Darkness great beauty can be found. Traipsing through the jungle (technically rainforest) deep in the northern Amazon river basin of Cuyabeno, Ecuador I came across this stunning wild orchid. It was dark, hot, and humid, but a single ray of sunlight seemed to highlight its magnificence—if only for a few seconds. I quickly dialled in my camera settings and took my shot.

New fine art printing technology will really make this image “pop” on your wall. For a contemporary (modern) look I would suggest either an Acrylic Print or Metal Print (no frames or mattes just brilliant, vivid colors). For a more traditional look (as pictured above) I would opt for a museum matted & framed print (this is a 16 x 20 inch print on metallic paper, with 4.75 inch white borders, and a black wood frame). $258.51 + Shipping (VIP Patron of the Arts discount is applicable).

  1. Hi Stephen, this post is in reply to the stock photography post, for some reason I could not leave a reply there. I have never applied to a stock agency, I did submit slides to a few hook and bullet magazines and sold a few but not much. Since digital came out I have never even tried, because everyone and their brother is submitting images.

    • You’re right Tim, since digital a lot of the traditional revenue venues have become flooded, and its become increasingly difficult to make a buck. Stock photography is one of those venues (unfortunately).
