Why I love photos on canvas

posted on 11th of june, 2008

Canvas is an exciting media to work with.I love the texture and the feel of it.You can get fine and coarse canvas textures and I love the different and exciting effects that you can create with canvas.You can achieve stunning color reproduction on canvas and maintain all the fine detail used a photographer painstakingly wishes to achieve, however on the other hand the media can be quite forgiving and some absolutley stunning paint effects may be achieved on some poorer quality photographs.

Once your photograph has been printed onto canvas using only the highest quality inks of course then another pleasure of working with this media is that it will last you a life time and probably sadly age better than you do.

A photograph comes to life when it is printed onto canvas the colours are so vibrant. When people see canvas print for the first time WOW is the first word that really springs to mind.

The only negative thing I can think to say about photos on canvas is that they are addictive and I do not think there is a cure.Once you have your favourite photo put onto canvas the you will want all your other favourite photos put onto canvas and you will just want to fill every room with them.I love canvas prints so much that I have teamed together with like minded people and we have now been producing our own for 6 months.

Our team is made up of people who respect photography for what it is, art, subjective, we dont all like the same thing thank goodness.

I love canvas prints, also. I do a lot of them for myself with my printer. Real saturated colors can turn out quite unique and interesting, if you mess up, however, you have spent quite a bit on ink!
