All collections to date have been shot on a 35mm Canon AE-1 program camera. This model is over 30 years old but yet still produces work of extremely high quality. Daragh has used a number of prime lenses in gathering his work and they are: 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 90mm macro, 200mm and a 300mm. Colour transparacy film (mainly Fuji Provia 100 asa) is used before scanning the images on a drum scanner to the highest resolution possible. No artificial light or filters have been used on any of the images.There is no enhancement added to the images when processing the scanned images.All commercial work has been shot on a Canon 5d mark 2, 21.1 megapixal camera.
All images are either limited editions or open editions. The limited editions are more exclusive and will maximise the value of the print. Open editions are finished to the same high standard as the limited prints but are priced lower. All prints are hand signed showing their edition number and come with a Dúlra information print. All images are printed on original and archival Lambda prints by Fire Design, a professional lab in Dublin that is at the cutting edge of the printing and Design industry thus guaranteeing that your print is finished to the highest standard. All prints are a matt finish and if purchasing print only then a small border along the bottom while be included to accomodate editioning and signature.
Any frame is available but the 2 standard frames I use, priced for on my site, are a 30mm x 20mm moulding (Obeche wood) hand painted in either a ‘silver grey’ or a ‘cream finish’. The ‘Silver Grey’ colour was designed for the launch of the ‘Sand & Ice’ collection as it’s a neutral colour that compliments most images. The ‘Cream’ colour was designed to match the mount card and was first used for the launch of ‘Jewellery Box’. This is a very subtle frame and works well with all images.The images are double mounted using archival Antique White mount board. Bespoke frames are available but please contact Daragh for more information.
The image is laminated with a matt finish and then sealed onto a 12mm wooden board using a acid free adhesive. 20mm batons are fixed to the back to give the piece the impression that it’s floating. A contemporary and clean way to finish a piece
As blockmount but only 3mm thick, a composition of 2 thin layers of aluminium (.5mm each) sandwiching 2mm of black PVC. Again a very clean and contemporary way to finish a piece but is more resilient to heat and moisture variables. In that, a diabond piece can be hung over a radiator or in a bathroom.
Light Boxes, Canvas and Acryllic also available. Please contact Daragh if interested.
