With a raise of hands... How many of you own hi-resolution files from a recent photo shoot that you purchased?
And with another raise of hands... How many of you have actually spent time to display them beautifully in your home?
** cricket... cricket... cricket... **
So now what?
In this digital age that we live in, "hi-resolution files" seems to be the "thing" that most people ask for, yet do nothing with. Apart from sharing their experience with their friends on social media (don't forget to credit your photographer ~ wink wink :) ) people are doing nothing with the images... And to be honest, that makes us creatives SUPER sad. Our desire is for the hours spent planning and shooting as well as time and energy vested in creating beautiful images during post production is for them to be displayed beautifully in the homes of our clients. This is partly why so many professionals are moving away from just selling just digital files. We want the art that was created of your beautiful family to hang proudly... And God forbid they stay hidden on that thumb drive never to be seen. Because we definitely don't want this to happen... (see video below or click here)
When it comes to hanging your beautiful images, I want to help alleviate the stress of how to create a beautiful uncluttered display on your walls. So quick, go grab the thumb-drive of images, dust if off, and get ready to display those amazing images!
First and foremost:
Yep, I said it. Size REEEAAAALLLY does matter when hanging and displaying your beautiful portraits. A lot of little images can feel and looked cluttered and unintentional. And on the opposite end, one small 8x10 can easily get engulfed by a wall and look miniature. My goal here is to provide you with ways to create an Art Collection of images with your images.
As you can see below, this framed 8x10 image looks completely dwarfed by the wall, fireplace, and furniture.
Instead, turn that 8x10 into a statement piece for ALL to see (even clear across the room). You want your Fine Art Portraits to make a statement, not feel understated.
Immediately the image goes from sad and understated, so a STATEMENT PIECE displaying your loved ones in an amazing way. If you prefer more of a collage look, going large with your prints and frames is the way to go in creating an entryway statement piece.
We creatives completely understand that it can feel totally overwhelming to create a cohesive gallery of images on your wall. So if the thought of dusting off those hi-res files feels overwhelming, contact the professional photographer that took your portraits and utilize their skill and expertise in this area to display your images proudly in your home!
Below are a few more examples of how to display your images BOLDLY and PROUDLY in your home!
I hope this helps inspire you to print those beautiful portraits and display them proudly in your homes! To receive the finest quality in products, be sure to contact your professional photographer and print directly through them. Along with size, QUALITY of products and prints is everything!
