A beautiful black and white photograph of The Fairy Glen – Betws-y-coed, Wales, Snowdonia. The Fairy Glen is a secluded gorge on the River Conwy. Captured traditionally on a 1971 Hasselblad 500c by Graham Binns Photography.
The Fairy Glen, located in Betws-y-coed is a gorgeous rocky, tree-lined winding creek on the River Conwy, Snowdonia, Wales. I could’ve spent hours photographing this beauty spot but the rain came in just ten minutes after I arrived. For this capture I used some original discontinued Fuji Acros black and white film which I have find gives lovely tones throughout the image and is ideally suited for long exposures with no film reciprocity.
The technical details:
- Film: Original discontinued Fuji Acros developed at home in Rodinal 1.25 Ratio.
- Camera set up: 1971 Hasselblad 500c with 50mm lens.
- Exposure: F22 at 4 seconds.
- Tripod: Manfrotto Be-Free
Print options: I offer two options for my art work to be displayed on walls. Fine Art Giclée Print or a Handmade UV Protected Canvas.
- Fine Art Giclée Print | I use an experienced specialist printer in Yorkshire to print and inspect every print before it leaves his family print workshop. The paper used is Hahnemühle 308gsm Photo Rag, a fine art smooth 100% cotton white paper. Hahnemühle Photo Rag® is one of the world’s most popular papers and the valued all-rounder for high-quality FineArt inkjet printing. The white cotton artist’s paper, with its characteristic, wonderfully soft feel, boasts a lightly defined felt structure, lending each artwork a three-dimensional appearance and impressive pictorial depth.
- Handmade Canvas | I use the same experienced printer for my canvasses. Hand built in his family workshop using 38mm (gallery standard) FSC approved UK pine frames. Using Canon’s award winning imagePROGRAF printers and LUCIA EX 8-colour ink, ensuring high quality colours and resolution prints on 340gsm 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is also UV resistant laminate for ease of gentle cleaning.
- Please note that all prints will have a blank ‘white bleed edge’ around the photo to help with mounting and framing. Canvasses have wrap around edges with no white borders and all ‘part inch’ canvas sizes e.g 21.7 inch will be rounded to the nearest even number inch size e.g 21.7 up to 22 Inch. All canvasses also come with a hanging kit.
- 3 to 5 working days.
Important note: The Graham Binns digital signature watermark will not be on the final product.
