Wolf images for Buzzsaw

Recommended Posts

In a thread on another board, Buzz asked me to post a series of wolf images I've matted and framed for a big group-artist show that runs in business storefronts all over Ely from Feb. 1 through 11. It's called ArtWalk. These will be up in the Timberjay's window on 2nd Ave East just off Sheridan.

The first one is a captive wolf portrait, printed 12x18, matted, signed and framed in a red oak frame made from 100-year-old lumber.

The next three are a series of two different wild wolves shot near Ely last winter, and since wolves and ravens seem to be a common partnership in the woods, I put in images that feature both. The series, each printed in 5x7 size, is matted, signed and framed in cherry-wood frames. Note: If in the three in the series the tone of the snow doesn't match on your screen, fear not, it matches exactly in the printed series.

Thanks guys. Cool thing is, that was shot with a 10D at iso800 and 1/30 sec handheld with the 100-400L, and enlarged to 13x19 it's sharp as a tack and full of subtlety. Before making this enlargement, I'd never have dreamed a print with that much detail shot at high iso from an old-generation 6.3 Mp sensor would hold together so nicely when enlarged so much. It is an arctic wolf, which are pretty white, but I selected the eye and desaturated the whole of the rest of the image to ensure the eye held the only color. It was shot just after a rain shower against a fairly dark background, but because the camera properly exposed the white pelt, the dark background was forced into underexposure and turned black, making it look as if it was shot in a studio.

And it IS framed large, and has been hanging on the wall of my newspaper office for the last year and a half. And will still, after ArtWalk, unless it sells. grin.gif
