About the Process:
Every image shown on this site was made using the Wista 5x4 field camera with 90mm, 150mm, 200mm, 300mm and 360mm lenses, the Mamiya 645 Pro camera system with 55mm, 80mm and 105-210mm zoom lenses or the Mamiya 6.
The process begins with a Heidelberg Tango scan of the original transparency. Using his digital workstation, a master image is made for every print and special care is taken to reproduce only what the lens captured. Through this process, what was envisioned at the time of exposure is reproduced in digital form and flaws in transparency handling and scratches can be removed, as well as colorcasts from film processing, however the true color and subjects are not altered.
The images are then exposed on Fuji Crystal Archive photographic paper using the LightJet digital enlarger. Using a digital file to make prints ensures consistent results every time. The color fidelity of LightJet prints is far more accurate than any traditionally reproduced images, and LightJet prints hold vibrant color, contrast, depth and sharpness in any size, remaining faithful to the originals.
All devices in the system are profiled individually with custom ICC profiles for the scanner, the monitor, and printer. Fuji Crystal Archive paper images will hold their museum display quality for 70 plus years.
