Digital photography is totally amazing, it still overwhelms me how photographic technology is developing at such a fast rate. Even our camera phones have great quality today and in most homes have replaced the family camera.
I began as many using a film camera and I can still remember how excited I would be waiting to see my photos, however I would have to wait until my 36 film roll was finished (we weren’t as trigger happy in film days) then I would leave in it the chemist where it would be collected to be developed. The much anticipated images usually took one week to be developed.
Roll on 15 years later, I can now see my images on the back of the camera the minute they are taken and even wi-fi them to my computer to view instantly. I can then simply click to print and Voilà jobs done!
Despite how much easier it is today to work with our photos, we are printing less. Most of my personal photographs from the past few years remain in folders on my computer, just like most people I know. We store hundreds in our phone, computers, hard-drives until we get to the stage we don’t know where to start!
When I used film cameras when I was younger, I used to love making family albums, collages, and frames for my room. As digital photography took over, I admit that I didn’t do as much photo creations as I used to.
Working as a photographer now, I see so much value in making these photo creations for people to showcase in their home. I love taking these small digital files and creating art pieces that a family can hang in pride of place in their home. During the design process I can give ideas and advice on the best way to display your images. There are so many different ways of displaying your photos that it can be overwhelming . It can be more beneficial to let an expert guide you to find the perfect product display for you and your family.
Below are some photo display ideas to inspire!
The starting of the design process, editing your photos on the computer.
The box frame is a contemporary ‘frameless frame’ which will make a statement on any wall.
The canvas frame gives a long-lasting way to display a special image, with added texture.
The classic single image frame, choose a mount and a frame to make the image really stand out.
Or choose a few of your favourite mounted individually and framed together in my ‘Clarity Frame’.
And for those who find it hard to pick just one favourite image, put them all into a storybook to keep on your coffee table!
Which thanks to digital technology are a lot more attractive than my old school stick-in photo albums!
