“Key to outputting large-format images is using the proper RIP software,” he says. “The Colorbyte Software RIP was extremely easy to use. Its built-in profiles for different types of papers were easy and consistent. The project was produced on Hahnemuhle Photorag 308 or William Turner 310 paper, which provided a rich palette of colors that brought to life the essentials of landscape and light. The papers yield zero dot gain, which is critical, especially when images need to show maximum depth of field and richness of color.”

Over the years, Machtinger has heard, from many creatives who have supported his creative journey, that it’s the image that counts, not the techniques or technology. One collector of his work told him he didn’t understand the technology behind the printing, but he knew what he liked.

“If I have conveyed this feeling to others, reflecting the beauty of Canada along the way, I will have been successful.”
