In a recent article from the digital circus, I wrote about the world’s first digital, photographic, vacuumed image. The image was bonded onto a slab of MDF to create a beautiful table top.
This is another example of vacuum forming, this time creating a 3D digital image. My friend Andy Thomson has spent the past 10 years of his life trying to perfect this process.
Why photographic transfer you may ask. All other forms of digital print are photorealistic. Digital photographic prints are contone. They are more vivid, the contrast is greater and hence they portray the subject matter more naturally.
This process is now available commercially. In the near future, you will see photographic furniture, photographic point-of-sale and photographic 3D imagery.
The future for photographic images has never been more exciting.
If you have any comments, I would love to hear from you. My name is Steve Howard.
