Sometimes all you need is quick snapshot. Other times you are looking for much more. Serious photographers understand the art behind their favorite endeavor, and how important it is for their photo processors to share their commitment to perfection in all aspects of the craft.

Only As Good as the Paper
As a photographer, you understand the importance of perfecting every single shot, from choosing the right lighting to selecting and posing your subjects with the utmost care. But creating those one-of-a-kind digital images is only half the battle. The other half is making sure those images make their way on to the paper without reducing the impact or the artistic beauty they possess.

At Hampton Photo, Arts and Framing, we understand that the images we produce are only as good as the paper we use, and that is why we use only the finest quality materials to create your unique works of art. When you bring us your best digital images, you can be assured that we will treat your artistic visions with the utmost care. We are photographers ourselves, and we understand better than most the artistry and technique that takes place behind the camera. With our fine art printing, we strive to bring your artistic vision out from behind the camera lens and put it on the printed page.

The Latest Equipment
The world of photography has always been a place for the latest technology, but the pace of change has increased rapidly in recent years. Not too long ago, all serious photographers were still shooting with 35mm film, and those newfangled digital cameras were simply the tools of the point-and-shoot crowd.

How quickly things have changed. These days digital SLR cameras are as common among professional photographers as they are among weekend amateurs, and all of those photographers understand the importance of using the right equipment. From the lens on the end of your camera to the type of light meter you use, you want to make sure all of your equipment is state-of-the-art.

We feel the same way when the time comes to transfer those precious works of art from your camera to the paper. That is why we use only the best equipment when we print your photographs. We know that you understand the difference, and we strive to meet – and exceed – your expectations.

We invite you to look around our website and see what we have to offer. Once you do, we are sure you will choose us for all your fine art printing needs. At Hampton Photo,Arts , we are proud to bring more than 20 years of experience to the artistry you know so well, and we are proud of the fine photographers who help to make us so successful in what we do.

Photography by Laurie Barone-Shafer
Nowadays just about anyone can take a good quality photographs with a digital camera. Or take a few hundred pictures and the chances are few will be good, and even one or two outstanding.

Here are a few tips, tricks and techniques on how to make art print poster ready photographs and print ready digital files. Don’t get overwhelmed, there is a lot of information here, but a lot of it is just intuitive. Well, a bit of patience will always help.

First thing – Photo Size

If you taking a digital photo of you family or friend the largest size you would print is usually 5 by 7 inches, maybe 8 by 10 at the most. Even small size digital photographs (2MB or less) are ‘good enough’ to create a decent print. But if you want to create prints that are 16 by 20, 20 by 24 inches or larger you need more pixels (in pixels 20 by 24 inches photo is actually about 40 times larger than 3 by 4 inches photo assuming they have the same resolution).

Learning to Paint with Watercolors

By Cindy Tabacchi

ImageWatercolor is an easy, fun medium for creating art.  Color theory, composition and design can be explored freely with watercolor paint, paper, and brushes.  Several techniques may be used with watercolors for varying effects including painting wet on wet, wet on dry, layering washes, and more.

Watercolor paper comes in cold press, hot press, and rough.  Rough paper has the most texture, and its hills and valleys can result in interesting effects when paint is added.  Hot press is the smoothest and has the finest texture.  Cold press has a moderate amount of texture and is the paper most commonly chosen by watercolor artists.

Watercolor paper comes in several weights ranging from 90 lb. to 300 lb. based on the pounds per ream of paper.  Most artists prefer to use at least 140 lb. paper.  Papers vary somewhat between manufacturers, so sampling different papers is advisable.  Paper can be purchased in pads, in blocks or in large sheets.  The large sheets are usually the most economical and can be torn into whatever size is desired.
