making the print.
Most of the early work was photographed in the convention
way of shooting large and medium format film. The
negatives are then scanned to make the RAW digital image.
Working with the image, I use the same techniques as I would
with working in the darkroom, using PhotoShop, instead of an
enlarger, to crop, then dodged and burn. Once the
image exposure and contrast is to my liking, I then clean
the image of dust spots, scratches, stray hairs, etc.
On very rare occasions, when a subject requested minor touch
up with darkroom prints, I replicate the same amount of
touch up with PhotoShop, to match the silver gelatin print. No other PhotoShop
applications are applied.
Images are printed upon
request. Once the image is printed,
using Professional Epson printers with Ultrachome K3 pigment
on Ilford fiber base, double weight digital photographic
paper, the print is ready to be shipped or dry
mounted. The finished mounted print is dry mounted on
white, acid free museum board. Preparing the image can take
up to a few days to complete. Mounted prints may take
a little longer.
On the back of the mounted or
un-mounted print is a NEGATIVE and PRINT stamp.
NEGATIVE is signed with g. Paul Bishop's, rubber stamp
signature, representing that he made the negative. PRINT
is signed, in pencil, with G. Paul Bishop, Jr.'s signature,
representing that he made the print.
Most, if not all, payments are handled through PayPal.
Other methods of payment can be negotiated through
e-mail. Through PayPal, once the image is purchased, I send
an e-mail confirming that the order has been received.
When the order has been completed, I send an additional
e-mail confirming the order has been sent.
Sales Tax and
For domestic print orders, sales tax and shipping are
included with the price of the print. International
orders may be subject to shipping fee.
