...And now for something completely different, as Monty Python used to say. TOP's own Print Sale for this season will feature two absolutely lovely color prints, quite different from each other, that both have a radical amount of bokeh.
Bokeh as many of you know is a term derived from the Japanese that means "out-of-focus blur" but is shorter to say and easier to write. Many photographs do not have any out-of-focus blur; many photographs have a little; a few have a great deal, and, in a very small percentage of cases, photographers deliberately use bokeh as a creative element.
As is the case with our two sale pictures.
The prints are made by a master printer who has been refining his printing techniques, skills, and style since taking a workshop from some guy named Ansel Adams a number of decades ago. He also loves to experiment with a variety of fine and expensive papers to get just the right effect...
...And that is where we are right now. John is experimenting with papers, FedEx is en route to me with proofs; the process continues.
Much to be done. It's a several-week-long process with many steps to present a print sale. As you might imagine, though, this one is close to my heart. I love these. I am trying not to suggest print sizes based on where they will go in my house.
More news about the beautiful bokeh print sale soon. The pictures are quite different from anything we've ever offered before. And yep, the lenses used were chosen for their bokeh properties. Of course we'll eventually fill you in on all the geeky details about that as well.
The Turnley Twins
Peter Turnley's holiday print sale is over now, but his twin brother David's is still going on. David and Rachel are once again offering prints of a wide selection of David's award-winning work as a photojournalist. David and Rachel, like Peter, have kindly offered to share a referral fee to TOP if you mention you came from here. Scroll to the bottom of the sale page to order. Tell your friends!
