Fine art photograph of laurel leaves with rain droplets. Black and white garden leaves. Laurel hedge shrub leaves. Black and white flora Graham Binns Photography
Wandering around my garden during the coronavirus lockdown I found myself looking for anything to photograph. I eventually settled on our laurel hedge, there had been a rain shower not long before and I loved the water droplets still sitting on the leaves. I took several exposure readings to try highlight certain leaves and darken others. It’s a photo obtained from pure boredom after several weeks in lockdown, something different to my usual style but I still like it and I absolutely love the beautiful tones and textures throughout the image producing a mundane part of the garden into a lovely black and white fine art image.
The technical details:
- Film: Fuji Acros (original) ‘medium format’ 120 film giving a negative size of 6cm by 6cm.

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.
