"Stardust", a close up of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, was achieved by compositing over 300 images over the course of 3 years from Death Valley. When photographing the cosmos, Carmichael employs extensive, sophisticated equipment designed to counteract the earth’s rotation. Carmichael achieves a signature level of detail and sharpness in his work using a combination of techniques - notably, focus-stacking and photo-mosaics, in which many images are meticulously pieced together to create a singular photo in optimal focus. The end-result is an image that’s incredibly clear, even at massive scale.

In production, Carmichael favors laser-printing on crystal archival substrate with microscopic crystals on the surface. This unique material gives prints exceptional vibrancy, saturation and a 3D quality when lit. Prints are then seamlessly adhered to UV protected acrylic, an ideal choice for preservation.


CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY

Adhered to the back of each limited edition print is a certificate of authenticity which is dated, numbered, signed, and includes a holographic serial number.
