In the early stages of design for the new BRAMS (Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Service) Family Centre, it was decided to take photos of local kids and use them in the consulting rooms and waiting room. We wanted to create a local, happy feel to the centre.
For the waiting room, we chose 3 close ups of these gorgeous toddlers and set them as a collage. The photos were printed on 3mm acp to a width of 800mm x 1500mm.
BRAMS Family Centre Photographic Shoot was located at the beautiful Town Beach, Broome. Taking photos of small children is always challenging and I spent a morning chasing them around, until they got used to me and my camera. Before long, they relaxed and weren’t quite so shy. It was a great morning although I had a seriously sore back from getting down to their height before capturing these special moments.
For the consulting rooms, we chose these photos and framed them.
This last photo was printed on acrylic using a process called Diasec. Because of the different light penetration and refraction of acrylic compared to normal glass, the colours are more brilliant and the image sharper than compared to standard glass in a picture frame. This was further enhanced by using metallic paper. The print is also resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light because of the properties of acrylic glass.
This photo in real life is just stunning.
