I take extreme care in preparing each print personally, using the best imaging technology available to the best of my abilities, that I improve year after year, with the sole purpose of producing work that will delight you, the owner. My materials and techniques are gold-standard in their class and my prints are an elegant accompaniment to any home, office, or boardroom.
There is a huge difference in viewing photographs on a computer display versus seeing fine art prints in person; only the prints show the light, depth, texture, and delicate nuances of my images and the materials on which they are printed. I encourage you to zoom in one of my images, explore the details and imagine it on your walls. "
The Limited Edition is designed to complete your walls: imagine a beautifully hand framed piece, with his time-less look, hanging on one of your best walls and the pride it will bring to you when you are showing your home to your guests.
Every image is printed in limited runs personally by Francesco to ensure the highest care and quality in producing the print: to protect your investment, the price is raised by 5% after each sale.
For your peace of mind, the Civil Code Section 1740-1741 of the State of California in regard to limited editions is carefully followed by accounting for every image sold. Each limited edition print is also registered on Hahnenmüle’s My Art Registry (http://www.myartregistry.com) to further guarantee your investment.
Francesco prints in-house using the latest Canon PRO-2000 24" Printer with LUCIA PRO ink set plus Chroma Optimizer.
Francesco uses museum quality Hahnemühle and Canson Premium papers, the very best fine art papers on the market; each paper is purposefully chosen by Francesco depending on the image to enhance its qualities.
Francesco will then matte the print using Museum Grade Rag mats, 100% cotton mat board used by museums and those seeking the highest level of protection.
Cotton gloves will also be included to handle your print, along with Francesco's personal suggestions for framing it, and a Certificate of Authenticity with serialized number hologram. When properly handled, your print is guaranteed to last a lifetime and more.
All Limited Edition prints are also hand-signed and numbered.
The print is delivered matted and ready to frame or can be optionally delivered already framed with a beautiful Museum Quality custom frame that Francesco will choose to match it: the anti-reflection UV glass will protect your print for a lifetime and more.

Big Island, Hawai'i, USA.
The Punalu'u Black Sand beach is a unique and beautiful place in the south of the Hawai'i Big Island. The black sand is formed when volcanic lava flows into the ocean and it disintegrates when it gets in contact with the cold water: A beach of black sand is thus formed: unfortunately it lasts only a fleeting moment in geological terms, since the black sand is quickly washed away after few decades. This beach is surrounded by beautiful palm trees, giving a wonderful tropical feel. The sunset sky played along by being moody and menacing, which contrasts nicely with the calm water. Turtles are often companions of the photographer wandering around here, but that day they might have been too lazy to approach. Or too shy.
Like Black Ocean, this image is also a study of leading lines: the rocks in front gave a great lead pointing straight to the clouds, where I eventually want the viewer to rest. I focused roughly where the stones meet the water and closed to f/13 to get as much sharpness as possible on the foreground black rocks and the black sand: the rest of the scene in the distance is smoothen out by the long exposure and didn't need a second exposure to stack focus. A 0.9 graduated filter kept the sky in check. I slightly dodged the foreground rocks and burnt the top of the sky to lead the viewer inside the frame. The feelings the image tries to carry across are contrasting again: calm walking towards the storm.
