Canvas Tip – Caring for your Canvas
ROC Canvas Prints are designed to last as long as you, and with the right care you will be enjoying your canvas prints for a long time to come.
Care Instructions: Your canvas print should only ever need a light dust. If your print does get soiled you can wipe the print gently with a damp cloth. You must never use solvents / cleaning agents. These agents will damage the varnish / laminate coating protecting your print from UV and abrasions.
Your canvas print is comprised of:
• 430gsm matt canvas
• Genuine Canon inks from a 12 colour wide format printer.
• Stainless steel staples, essential for the Australian weather
• Kiln dried environmentally friendly stretcher bars (frame)
• 3 coats of protective laminate / varnish
• Finished with backing tape and wire ready to hang.
Photography Tip – The Selective Focus Technique
Photography that is in focus and out of focus at the same time.
With this technique you can choose one part of the image to be sharp and in focus, while the rest of the image is kept out of focus. It’s very useful when you only want a photo of the person, and not all the stuff in the backyard or kitchen.
You can achieve this type of photography by using the following settings:
For selective focus choose your widest f-stop on your camera (ie: largest aperture size), such as f/2.8 or f/4. (this will differ depending on your camera). If you choose this option make sure you also choose a fast shutter speed.
If you don’t want to do this manually – changing to a wide f-stop can be easiest achieved by choosing the aperture preference mode (A setting or AV setting on your camera) and setting your aperture to 2.8. This will automatically increase your shutter speed to account for the increased amount of light.
Angle of the camera
This photography tip takes a bit of practice, but can be very effective. It often works best when you have a greater distance between the background and your subject. Start by choosing an angle that causes the background to be further from the focused subject. This helps the background to be more greatly out of focus. Sometimes this is best achieved by getting down low and having a high ceiling or distant trees as the background.
Using AV (aperture preference) F2.8 Using AV (aperture preference) F8
You can see that using the settings discussed the desired result has been achieved in the first image. The second reference image is using the aperture preference setting of F8 – equivalent of having the camera set to ‘auto’.
By practicing this technique you can create interest in your photo album and can have greater freedom in the environments you photograph as you no longer need to worry about what is in the background.
