DESCRIPTION: Here's another outtake from the May 10, 2005 X&Y photo shoot. At the time, this was a very big production for me. For the sake of efficiency, we had a full day scheduled for the pre-light; that allowed us to set up 3 separate studios at the location. That way, when the band arrived, they just had to walk from set to set. When I prepare for an important shoot, I try to immerse myself in all aspects of a band to gain the best possible grasp of its music. By the day of this shoot, I had Coldplay's songs playing through my head; knowing this, I made a conscious effort not to sing in front of the band members. A few minutes before the shoot, I found myself in the men's room singing “Yellow” in what I imagined was a nearly perfect Chris Martin falsetto voice. I then glanced in the mirror to find that none other than Chris Martin, also checking his appearance before the shoot, had been listening the entire time.

All photogaphs are printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag® Deckle Edge 308 gsm, produced using Ultra Chrome HD inks from Epson. The final print will also be delivered with a Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity. The Hahnemühle certificate system was designed to protect the security and genuineness of your limited edition art work and to reduce the risk of forgery. Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialized numbered hologram is affixed to the certificate. A second, identically numbered hologram is then applied to the artwork. Additionally, both the certificate and print are embossed with Richard Beland Photography Inc.’s lightning bolt and star logo. The combination of certificate and hologram assures that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to one particular piece of art.
Each image is printed, signed and numbered by Richard. Richard has 25 years of traditional and digital darkroom printing. Whether the original photograph is from a digital scan of a negative or transparency or the photograph has been made with a digital camera, great care is taken to ensure that the contrast, density and colour have been corrected to maximize the potential of each image.
