Camera Scanner Capturing Art

Photography Capturing Art

Based on our experience, and consultation with art expert associates, our camera scanning is the optimal method to capture and digitize specific artwork. We recognize that professional scanning requires a personal touch to generate the ideal reproduction. Some textures are captured more genuinely with fully controlled lighting, which is the case in our in house developed camera scanning system. With mastered still photography, we achieve a very high resolution image in raw format. This can be applied to large format printing projects such as a wall size print common in the fashion and signage industries.

Our method not only allows us to create a very sharp image, there is also no risk of damaging the artwork in the process. Many scanners make contact with the original works by use of a roll-in system, as they have automatic feed mechanisms typically used to handle paper documents, or artwork is laid on a glass surface, both of which can cause damage to delicate fine art. Contrarily, our in house developed wall scanning method mounts the artwork and uses accurate, flexible lighting to keep the image detailed and crisp like the original, and is non-contact. Just look at the example below to get a sense of the result derived from this remarkable process.

The entire process is carried out with our skilled staff personally capturing your image, which makes for an outstanding, high resolution reproduction. Here is another example of one of our satisfied customer’s fine art scan.
