Kerry Cliffs Ireland at sunset, Ring of Kerry, by Michael Rung

Culmination

Kerry Cliffs, Ireland (2019) - Having given myself just one full day to explore the southwest of Ireland after business meetings before heading back to Dublin for my flight, the Kerry Cliffs were high on my list of locations to photograph. Not realizing they are not accessible around the clock, I had to charm my way into entering only 15 minutes before closing time, and then struggled to climb the steep slope to the top of the cliffs as quickly as possible.

 

Exhausted but not wanting to waste time resting, I was able to capture a few different compositions, aware that rain was also quickly approaching. It was a race against the weather in one direction as the sun burst through the clouds in front of me. I got the shot but soon after the sky opened up and I had to scramble to cover my gear as I trudged back to my rental car.

  • My Artist Series fine art photography artwork is printed on Palo Duro Etching 315 from Red River Paper, using a Canon Pro 2100 large format printer. Each print is mastered and produced by me in my home studio and includes a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

    Photography prints made with Palo Duro Etching 315 are the perfect choice for anyone looking to showcase stunning nature photography. This high-quality art paper is made from 100% cotton rag and has a classic texture that adds depth and interest to your prints without detracting from the details. It is OBA-free and archival, making it ideal for museum-quality and exceptional longevity.

    One of the benefits of this paper from Red River is its warmer white tone, which gives my prints an elegant, natural look. This is particularly beneficial for nature photography, as it enhances the beauty of landscapes, nature scenes, and other images with a natural color palette. Unlike other matte papers, it also produces amazingly deep blacks, thanks to a barrier coat that locks ink into the inkjet coating and prevents it from sinking into the base paper.

    Palo Duro Etching 315 is a true conservation grade media, with no optical brighteners, and is acid- and lignin-free. It is perfect for producing my fine art nature prints, whether for display in your home or at work. This paper is also ideal for fine art print collectors who appreciate the texture and feel of watercolor or cold press fine art paper.

    The professional printer I use, a Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-2100, uses archival pigment inks, providing vibrant, accurate colors. The use of pigment inks furthers the longevity of my Artist Series prints when properly displayed and cared for.

    With their elegant look, feel, and performance, my fine art prints are sure to impress and delight for generations to come.

    ARTIST SERIES PAPER SIZES

    My photos are mastered to take advantage of the most appropriate crop, or aspect, ratio for each composition. The majority of my photos use a 2:3 aspect, but I also have images in aspects of 4:5, 1:1, 1:2, and 2:5.

    For 1:1, 2:3, and 4:5 aspects, smaller prints are produced on 11" x 14" and 16" x 20" sheets of fine art paper. The border around the printed image will vary depending on the aspect of the selected photo.

    I prefer to use these standard print sizes for my smaller prints to allow for more off-the-shelf framing options without forcing you to have a custom frame produced, which can often cost more than the print itself. If you would prefer to have the paper trimmed to match the actual image aspect ratio, please contact me to receive a special order quote.
