studio size wall

This inspires me to no end! The uber talented portrait photographer, Anna Mayer talks about her studio size samples....arranged in the most artful display I have ever seen "My husband, Brian, and I are partners in this photography venture. We both LOVE graphic design and have a blast taking that design off of the paper and onto the wall. We have designed many fun galleries for clients, for boutiques and coffee shop displays. This one is one of my favorites and hangs on the office wall opposite my desk. I am more of a “symmetry girl” and typically prefer galleries such as sixteen 10x10’s in a grid. However, I know that not everyone loves symmetry, including my clients, so I forced myself to think outside the box. The results were really more pleasing than I expected and this wall has grown on me. These represent almost all of my larger print sizes which is great for ordering appointments. They are printed on masonite from Millers and then mounted on three levels of foam core hidden behind to give them relief. We then hung the prints using Velcro strips. One side is sticky and is placed on the back of the foam pieces and the other side of the Velcro is actually stapled (with a staple gun) to the wall. The damage to the wall is very minimal and hanging is really simple! The hardest parts of doing a gallery like this is the original design, because it can end up looking like a mess if you are not careful and laying out the “relief” so that the various levels overlap properly. Overall, though, it is simply fun!" I think it's simply amazing. Don't you agree?

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
