Here is a list of frequently asked questions related to purchases. Please check here to see if your question has already been answered.
Q: Do you sell you photos in alternate sizes?
A: Yes, for most photos. Use the contact form to inquire about the specific size for a specific photo to obtain pricing.
Q: Do you sell your photos matted or framed?
A: No, not at this time. In the future if there is enough interest for matted prints then we will add this option. People’s taste and the color scheme in the area they plan to display the photos are so diverse that any matte color other than black, white or gray would probably not work. There are no plans at this time to offer framed prints. It is safest for the customer to have the prints matted and framed to suit them.
Q: If I order a black and white print with standard processing, can I have it tinted rather than strictly black and white?
A: Yes, after you have placed your order please use the contact form to detail the general color that you would like your monochrome print tinted. Colorpicker.com is a great place to pick the color you want. Pick the color hue with the slider then pick the lightness/darkness within the box. Then copy the 6 digit code from the the colorpicker tool into your contact form details. Please note that there are a great many variables between screen and printing so we will try our best to match your color but the final product may vary slightly from what you are looking for. Colors that are just slightly off of gray rather than bright yellows, oranges etc. work better for tinted printed.
Q: What is the difference between standard (silver halide) processing and premium (silver) processing for black and white prints?
A: The standard processing is a color process but can produce a black and white picture by printing in grays. There can sometimes be a slight color hue in the print due to variations in the processing. It is an adequate process for photos that are mostly gray rather than high contrasts of either white or black. It still works for high contrast images but isn’t quite as dramatic. A silver based process is the traditional black and white printing method which produces accurate blacks and whites and the full range in between. This process is the way to go for photos that have deep blacks and bright whites such as Henry Singer. There are very few printers that will still print on silver paper so expect a long shipping time if this is what you choose.
