Hummingbird Wall Decor
This wall hangings comes ready to hang and includes a beautiful photograph of a hummingbird.
I took my son with me on a Photo Walk. This Photo Walk took place at Colony Farms in Coquitlam, BC. I sat for a very long time taking photographs of these super fast hummingbirds at this one flower. It seemed to attract a lot of them. I found out later it is a bee balm and it attracts hummingbirds.
I took many shots, close to 100 and got a couple of good ones. However, this one is one of the best photographs. To capture the wings, you need to shoot at a high shutter speed. This was shot at 1/500 sec. And to blur out the rest of the background you need a small aperture. I shot this one at f/5.6.
How it’s made
Each wall hanging is handmade in my studio from a carefully selected pieces of reclaimed wood. Each piece of wood is unique and has its own personality. The art you receive will have the same photograph as the listing images. However, the wood will have its own interesting colour, texture, imperfections and style. It is completely handmade.
Firstly, the process starts with sanding the wood, putting biscuits in the wood for better stability.
Secondly, I whitewash the wood so the colours will pop. After that, I manually transfer the photograph and covering it will a UV varnish. Finally, it is stapled and it’s ready to hang anywhere you like.
The photographs are 5×7, 8×10 and 11×14 approximately, adding more width and length for the wood. Larger sizes can also be made by request. Larger sizes require more than one piece of paper for the transfers due to limits of the size of copies.
If you have a photograph that you would like me to transfer to reclaimed wood, custom orders are always welcome. Please send me a message to discuss your custom wall hanging.
Although all of images are color compatible for viewing online, most computer monitors vary in their color configurations and the images that you see may not have accurate color representation.
