Posterhood prints are unique because of their processing technique the photographer, Steven Goth, refers to as Fluidscaped which results in stunning images that keep their richness and depth at any viewing angle. Up close, the photograph surprises with an unusual fluidity, as if the colors have melted together. Rock, wood, and foliage are especially striking. A fluidscaped image retains its depth when printed on all types of paper, but really commands attention when printed on fine quality canvas as it then toggles gracefully between photography and art, depending on the distance you view it from.
This image square is a magnified section of The Morning Dew. (full image shown below) The fluidity of shapes and colors form a gentle design that when viewed from a distance recreates itself back into a clear and vivid image. Take the fluidscaped test and back away from the computer screen and watch the image sharpen.
Part of what gives an image clarity and depth is its resolution when printed. Any image that is printed at a third or fourth of its original size will produce great results. The fluidscaped image, however, takes a few actual steps beyond basic print resolution by creating a virtual resolution that increases when viewed from a distance.
NOTE – The fluidscaped process was the result of trial and error and developed slowly over the years exclusively by and for Steven Goth. And just like a family recipe, the exact how-to ingredients will not be shared publicly or privately. (Not to say a patient photographer with digital skills couldn’t figure it out.)
