It’s clearly difficult to get a true idea of what you’re thinking of buying when you only have a small low resolution image to go on, particularly if that image is an impressionist one that doesn’t abide by the rules of traditional photography, and no matter how much I declare my poor image quality paranoia, my reputation is unproven.  

Though the option of seeing a couple of full resolution A4 prints is there it’s not immediate, so I’ve prepared a number of images so that you can get a truer feeling for the actual prints. I’m referring predominantly to my impressionist work but I’ve thrown in a few traditional photographs too.

But for one crop from a 20 inch (50.8 cm) short side panorama, the examples below are from images at 40 inches (101.6cm) on the short side (most from 40x60 inch prints). Each crop is a 6x6 inch (15.24x15.24 cm) crop, so you know what size to adjust it to.

Remember, the images below are representative and because of variations in monitors and calibration may differ from the high resolution prints, while actual print colours, though accurate, may also vary from what you see on your device.

A number of techniques have be used to arrive at the final “Impressionist” images that you can see below resulting in many “deliberately” none-photographic “painterly” effects, particularly multiple exposures where the camera is moved between each shot but properly focused like the first image below. Some people can’t get their head around using a camera that way, so bare that in mind when you begin to wonder if I know how to focus properly! (For more on that see the bottom of the page).

Even my properly focused Impressionist images, by their nature, are painterly and not overly photographic, but just in case you think I don’t know how to use a focus ring below are samples of a few traditional images, again at 40 inches (101.6 cm) on the short side (no focus stacking used!).
