I'm going to try firing up the blog again for 2016, especially the nature/landscape side of things. It is in desperate need of a redesign so I will be working on that while shooting for KSTV. Unfortunately the slideshows on older posts have been disabled by flickr. You can find all of my work in my gallery.

Custom Canvas Prints from Canvas on Demand

I was recently contacted and given the opportunity to do a product review for a company called Canvas On Demand. They are able to take a photo you send them and turn it into beautiful canvas art. I chose the photo from yesterday's post of my daughter.

Canvas On Demand has many sizing and finishing options. I selected the PhotoRealistic option, but they also offer it in BrushStroke. Since my image was cropped in camera so close to the edge, I chose to have it gallery wrapped with a black border instead of stretching the image around the wooden frame. The Thick Gallery Wrap is substantial at 1 1/2". The ordering process is pretty straightforward. I did not encounter any difficulties placing my order.

Let me just say that I did receive my  16 x 20" canvas free of charge for promotional purposes, but it would have been worth every penny. It is stunning! The shipping materials were first rate. The canvas was thoroughly protected with corner supports, plastic wrapping and sturdy cardboard. In fact, I was getting anxious removing all the protective layers because I just wanted to see what it looked like. =) The canvas came packaged with all the necessary hanging hardware.

These photos do not do this canvas justice. It is just amazing in person. The quality of the canvas and printing is fantastic. Her hazel eyes just glow. I did lighten and sharpen my original photo a tad more than I normally would for a standard print. I am very pleased with the results.

If you want a real show-stopper and something that will last for generations to come, you can't go wrong with a canvas like this one. Canvas On Demand exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend their service to my friends and clients in the future. This one is staying with me and will become a treasured heirloom!
