This view of the Nicolet Forest is not an ordinary photograph that's been enlarged to fill a larger space. This original life-size digital image capture is printed at full gallery resolution, as shown here, without enlargement. As a result, this installation is critically sharp at any viewing distance.

This Hyde's Mill print from the Murals Gallery, below, remains critically sharp up to 8' x 20'.


Similarly, all images in this gallery specify digital image capture dimensions for full resolution.

Digital image capture

The first and most essential step in capturing images that recreate an environment is shooting a scene with enough detail to provide a realistic model that allows multiple operations to come later in creating the final result.

I use a variety of techniques in creating large-scale digital images. With a combination of separate photographs, as shown above, I can produce a digital capture of any desired resolution. I also use view cameras with digitized film as a capture method.

In this final result, 1760 MP of image data has been transformed into a single image that can be mounted and displayed. In addition to large scale image capture, several other parameters are carefully controlled to preserve the experience when initially viewing this scene.
