VINTAGE OLD DETROIT STROH'S BREWERY 1920's BEER GLASS photo picture art print for sale. This vintage 1920's DETROIT STROHS BREWERY BEER ADVERTISING GLASS photo picture print for sale is a multiple bracketed exposure photo of this rare pre-Prohibition Detroit Stroh's beer glass, filled with Stroh's Beer. The glass has been etched with the famous STROH'S signature logo and with the cautionary words "See that corks are branded with Trademark Detroit" These small glasses were produced from about the late 1800's through 1920 when Prohibition began. They were rarely sold---they were mostly 'thank you' giveaways to the bar owners who carried their product. Beneath it is etched 'DETROIT', the home of The Stroh's Brewery. These glasses were often given to bar owners and clients of Stroh's Beer as thank you for carrying their product, making them quite rare. The glass was also very thin, so not too many have survived close to a hundred years like this unique item. Thirteen years later in 1933, when Prohibition ended, these glasses were no longer produced. This is an artistic studio portrait photographic rendering of this iconic vintage Stroh's beer glass.

This is an original High Dynamic Range color photograph created by nationally recognized artist/photographer Jan Kaulins. It is one of the newest artistic images in his most recent series of photographs. Each photograph has been created from nine separate photographic digital exposures and then layered together into one photographic image. It is then ‘tone-mapped’ where individual areas of the photo, as well as contrast, saturation and other qualities of the image can be artistically manipulated to bring out the artistic effects that make these photos so visually unique. Some of the photos in this series are even further enhanced for artistic effect giving them an almost painterly or graphic silkscreened look.

This is a relatively new photography technique which uses the blending of the nine multiple bracketed exposures to capture and emulate the way that light levels in the real world vary over an enormous tonal range, from the brightest area of sunlight to the darkest area in the shadows. All of these varying degrees of light cannot be exposed properly and captured in a single photograph---hence the necessity of layering and combining of the multiple over and under exposures to allow the viewer to see all of the existing areas of light at one time in one photo. The enhanced saturation, softness, and color of the multiple images also is a partial result of this very unique photographic process and can be quite stunning and dramatic.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
