We designed our digital capture system to satisfy the demanding needs of artists, designers, architects, archivists, prepress professionals, and businesses that need high-resolution digital files from artwork, documents, and other originals. It is equipped with a high-resolution Hasselblad H6D camera capable of producing a 1.2 GB file in 8-bit or a 2.4 GB file in 16 bit. We capture each piece to gain as much information as possible and ensure quality color reproduction. In addition, we provide a reference print for our client to see a physical representation.
ROBIN'S DIGITAL CAPTURE PROCESS
Artwork, Documents, and Other Originals
We accept any type of flat art (including fabric), documents, and other originals up to 60”x 84”. We digitize multi-piece works (such as diptychs and triptychs) and use photo editing technology to create one seamless digital file. Reach out to us for an estimate on your project and we will be happy to help you out!
Color Accuracy and Paper Color
We equipped our digital capture studio to ensure our client's files will have the most accurate color representation possible. Each element including the Hasselblad H6D camera, professional studio lighting, and custom programmed ICC color profiles to match our studio environment with this goal in mind. For original work on colored or tinted paper, we balance to the white on a grayscale to keep the artwork's original feel.
Highly Reflective Surfaces and Metallic Paints
Surfaces with a high reflective quality, especially gloss varnishes and metallic paints are some of the most difficult artistic elements to capture and we provide polarizing filters to overcome these issues. When possible, it is best to have artwork digitized before it is varnished,. Keep in mind that fine art materials like gold and silver foils or metallic paints pose reflection problems as well. Reflections can cause the color and density to vary based on the way in which light hits the surface, so differences in representation are unavoidable to some degree. We offer a number of remedies to overcome these issues especially our polarization filters. Learn about our Polarization services here.
Certain pieces call for extra care and attention during the digitizing process. Vintage photographs or blueprints with creases or tears and artworks with 3-dimensional elements are example scenarios where special handling may be needed to ensure the best capture possible. If you believe your original may require special handling, please check with one of our representatives to discuss the best method and costs involved. Be sure to tell us how you plan to use the digital file so that we can provide you with the most cost-effective methods.
It doesn't stop there...
Digitizing original artwork (oil or acrylic paintings, watercolors, drawings, pastels, charcoal, and more), blueprints, damaged documents, or memorable pieces like old family portraits is the first step in the fascinating process of reproduction. The next steps and services that we offer include proofing, restoration, and printing on many choices of media. Give us the opportunity to help create your vision!

EXAMPLES OF DIGITAL CAPTURE SERVICES
Four images of the one dollar bill depict digital output from our former Phase I camera compared to three Hasselblad H6D images. Our upgraded Digital Capture service offers three capture modes: single shot, 4-multi shot, and 6-multi shot-- the ultimate in image resolution!
Three images of George Bodine's oil painting below depict different camera output. On the left is a cell phone camera image to show light reflections. The center image is a normal digital image captured by the Hasselblad H6D to depict areas where reflecting light causes issues. On the right is a Hasselglad H6D image with a polarizing filter to show how the filter diminishes reflection.
CLIENTS ARE TALKING!
"As a landscape painter I found that capturing the nuances and color (especially blue) were challenging digitally for reproduction. It was helpful to know the 3 levels of scanning to choose from too. I have projects coming up so this will be wonderful." - Kay Hurley
