So today I had an interesting post on my twitter feed.  A person looking to purchase a rights managed image for an add campaign.  So I sent her my personal email via Message in order to get more detai

Yay! Merry Christmas to me!

Question: what is an acrylic print?

OMG. There's too many choices - type of print, type of frame, color of frame, all the matting options... I need someone to tell me what would look right for this little fox.

I guess that would depend on your tastes and decor.

With the canvas wrap, acrylic and metal options, you don't need a matt or frame.

I finally received the owl print (after a delay due to my having made a typo on my shipping address), and it looks freaking badass fabulous!

The metal print option is very sleek and modern. The mid tones and light colors really pop.

The metal option comes with a little wooden spacer frame attached to the back of the print, so it just mounts to the wall and looks like it's floating about an inch away from it. No frame needed. Kind of a flat screen or iPhone look.

I think that DD's fox would look incredible on the metal, as would many of the other images. As I said, the owl looks great, but I think the metal effect would be even stronger with images that have more mid tones and lights, and not as much black. I think Morning Bluejay and Great Blue Heron - Poised would be killer on metal.

Thanks, Jules! I'll enjoy this print for years to come! It's an awesome Christmas present to myself!

DD my own preference is Metal,canvas or acrylic.

No framing needed. Acrylic is nice because it takes some of the light and helps light up the capture and looks very modern as does the metallic print. Canvas gives an image that classic look however you can lose a bit of detail. That being said because of all the bokeh soft areas in this particular capture canvas may actually accent the sharp areas of his face even more.

Looks like a stealth fighter jet...

Bordertowns

These are your best bets, starting at the top. The others are all interesting, but for different reasons.

The book on the Hopi photographs--not listed--is salvage work he did on a much earlier photographer. They were taken before the Hopis nixed any photography of their lives and ceremonies. It's also the expensive book of the lot. Most going for well over $100. Any below $50 should be grabbed--by whoever is interested in that sort of thing.

Bordertowns is a sad and bitter work which is going to be mostly valuable for a cultural anthropological record of what reservation life (socialism) and alcohol did to the Navajo. I'm referring to the next century and hundreds of years into the future. I'm not recommending it for the feel-good set.

Damn it! Now I'll have to buy another owl print!

Well, maybe after the holidays when my bank account has recovered.

Great work, Jules!

Many photographers when starting out do everything they absolutely can to avoid shooting a backlit subject. (It's tricky!!). What they don't realize though is a lost opportunity to create some dynamic and interesting capture!

This was shot about 10min after sunrise. (The golden hour). I did get some captures of him with front and side lighting but they were a bit blah compared to this one.

The velvet stage of his antler growth made for an even more dynamic rim lighting effect than if he had shed his velvet already.

I started out about 50 yards away, full camo, stop, shoot, wait for him to start feeding, move 5 yards closer, stop shoot. I believe the closest I got was about 30, maybe25 yards.(crap maybe closer I can't remember) There was no point in getting closer even if I wanted to because all I would get was an eyeball and some fur. I DO pay very close attention to any que he may be upset. He never once looked at me. You can sure tell it wasn't hunting season, he didn't pay much attention to me and was just pigging out. I like very much when they treat you like a ghost and do their normal day to day behaviour.

These guys are weird like that. Some days you can't get within 300 yards without spooking them.

Granted, this fellow was close to Jasper national park but not IN the park itself, but come September he most likely heads in so he is more than likely very used to human proximity without getting shot at.
