The depth and brilliance of a canvas print is wonderful. This print reflects light in different directions as opposed to a regular flat print giving it more of a three dimensional appearance and reduced glare. It does not look like a painting, it is a photograph. The print is adhered to the canvas material under hundreds of pounds of pressure. Then it is mounted to a masonite, hard board for extra durability. Finally, an extra spray is added for more protection. The only thing left to do is to frame the portrait. Glass is not recommended. Most people have their portraits canvassed if they will be hanging it on their wall. Some people really have some fun pictures at the end of their session playing in the water. Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes and a towel.
