Reproduction Color Accuracy
Photographing the Artwork & Processing the Images
All artwork on the site is photographed with a Pentax K-1 35mm full frame SLR with a 50mm fixed lens to minimize distortion in a controlled lighting environment with 5500K daylight LEDs to render colors with optimal precision and accuracy. The image is then processed in Adobe Lightroom, adjusted and color corrected.
Giclée Printing Process
The image file is provided to our printer who uses a giclée printing process to reproduce the artwork with superior clarity and color.
Giclée is a French word used to describe the high quality, high resolution, fade resistant, archival inkjet printing process that is used for all Miriam McClung artwork reproductions on canvas.
A giclée print is a digital inkjet print. It is made using a combination of pigmented inks and archival substrates (paper/canvas).
The inkjet printer literally blends the colored inks as it prints to produce seamless, highly detailed prints of stunning color and detail.
A giclée should not fade for a minimum of eighty years!
Why does my reproduction look different than the image I see on my computer?
When viewing these images indoors in a web browser, artwork is likely to appear more saturated and vivid than if you viewed them in person.
The image your device displays may not be accurate for several reasons:
- Your monitor or device isn’t professionally color calibrated.
- Your screen viewing conditions impact color accuracy (outside vs. inside, florescent vs. leds, etc.).
- Your browser displays inaccurate color.
To ensure that you have the most accurate display of the image:
- View the image with a color calibrated monitor.
- View the image indoors with the lights off in the room.
- View the image in Firefox with color management enabled.
If you are concerned with color accuracy of a work contact us or make an appointment to see the work in person.
