"Rainbow of the Night"
Dufur, Oregon - Central Oregon is dotted with old abandoned homesteads from the 1800s. Since this area is fairly remote, I decided these beautiful old homesteads would make the perfect subject under the Milky Way. We watched the weather and moon phases for several months, and all the conditions finally came together. At 2am, we made our way out to this old vacant home and put glow sticks inside the two front windows to add a focal point. Some bats inside the house came flying out and scared us half to death! Using a long exposure and a very light sensitive camera, we were able to capture more light than you can see with the naked eye. This image captures over half of the night sky, and the full arc of the summer Milky Way. If you look closely, the Andromeda galaxy can be seen under the arc of the Milky Way on the left side of the image. This house may not be much, but the previous occupants definitely had quite the view of the night sky.
Chromaluxe Metal Prints: These prints represent a new medium in photographic printing. Using a specialty process, we sublimate ink directly into a sheet of light reflective Chromaluxe aluminum. Due to the luminescence of the metal surface, the finished product has a brightness, vibrancy, and a clarity to it that cannot be rivaled with any other printing technique. Chromaluxe prints are so luminous, that they almost appear backlit. In addition to the striking finish, metal prints are guaranteed to last for a century without noticeable fading, are scratch resistant, waterproof, and all come with sleek aluminum hanging hardware on the back of the print for seamless hanging. The final piece will hang an inch and a half away from the wall. Chromaluxe prints represent the best quality prints in the industry and are the perfect modern art piece for any home.
Paper Prints: All of our paper prints are printed onto Kodak archival papers. This type of print requires matting and framing before it is ready to be hung.
Finishes: All of our paper prints come on Kodak Metallic fine art papers. Our Chromaluxe metal prints, however, come on two different finishes. Our recommended finish is on the high gloss Chromaluxe. The high gloss will have incredible contrast and depth, however it is prone to reflections if hung directly across from a window. Due to this, we also offer our Chromaluxe prints on a matte finish. The matte finish will have slightly less contrast that the high gloss, but will have zero reflections, and is recommended for areas where windows will cause reflections.
