So, your client is looking for a professional display of custom photographs and/or artwork. Or perhaps you’re in the midst of opening up your very first art gallery. As fine art printing professionals, we recommend (if looking to achieve gallery-level displays) to print to acrylic. We do offer a few different printing options when it comes to working with the acrylic material.
Some artists prefer printing their images directly to acrylic. Others prefer applying an added layer of acrylic to their already printed image. However, we recommend utilizing our TruLife (non-glare) Acrylic option when it comes to achieving that professional, polished look.
” I would definitely recommend other artists to use TruLife Acrylic. After watching the informational video on the ArtisanHD website, I found myself pretty impressed. And I wanted all of the prints to look very impressive. ” – Charles Abrams
Print To Acrylic On Your Next Big Project
Photographer Charles Abrams worked with ArtisanHD to produce high-quality prints for his most recent project. The prints were custom ordered to be displayed in the Or Tzion synagogue Social Hall located in Scottsdale, AZ. Charles is not only a member of the synagogue himself but also a volunteer of the decorating committee.
His first project was to work on improving the overall look of the Social Hall, where various activities took place. As it stood, a very large room with white, bare walls. Charles envisioned filling those empty walls with several large acrylic prints that showcased Judaism in different aspects. He then teamed up with local print shop ArtisanHD to make it a reality, and the results were nothing short of spectacular.
The Story Behind The Prints
Charles recommended that the longest wall feature various foods associated with the primary Jewish holidays. Some of which included Rosh Hashanah (New Year), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement and fasting) and Sukkot (Fall Harvest Festival).
The opposite (divided) wall contains 4 and 3 photos. The photos were all taken in Israel and include a depiction of the Ten Commandments in Hebrew, the reading of the open Torah scroll, women worshipping at the Western Wall, and the blowing of the Shofar (rams horn) heard on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
The last three photos all showcase candles. One with a cup of wine and a challah bread indicating the beginning of Shabbat (the Sabbath). Another showing the candles all light at Hanukkah. The third, the Havdalah candle lit to end the Sabbath. In addition, these three lit candles tie into the name of the synagogue ‘Or Tzion’, which means Light of Zion (Israel).
Meet The Artist: Charles Abrams
1. How did you get started in photography?
I got started in photography as a 10-year-old kid with the help of a friendly neighbor. My very first camera was a Kodak Duaflex that used 620 roll film and my first 35mm camera was a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic.
When I was out of graduate school and had a job, I finally had enough money to buy a Nikon FTN and thought I was in heaven!!! I had a standard Nikon 50mm lens and a Vivitar 70-210 Series 1 zoom lens.
When I finally switched to digital, I was committed to Nikon and started with a D70, then a D90, then a D100, then a D200, then a D300 and currently a D7100. I soon plan to move up to a full format (FX) D750. I have two lenses, a 12-24 and an 18-300.
2. What is your favorite style to shoot and why?
My favorite style to shoot has evolved over the years. I’ve always like portraits and always took my camera along on various travels. I had the most fun shooting classic and exotic cars and then creating unique collages for the owners of the cars. Several of those collages were produced at Artisan HD since I moved to Scottsdale 7+ years ago.
