living with art: modern picture box

Wall Display Picture BoxToday's "living with art" winning share comes from Denise Chastain of Modern Wedding Photography.  She says, "This image is a 20x30 print mounted on masonite, displayed in a 26.5x36 recessed shadow box that is built into the wall. The are two small tungsten lights built in above as well. We had our good friend, who is an amazing carpenter, custom make this for us. We have a few mounted prints around so we can rotate them, and they just lean on the wall within the picture box.  This is in the foyer of our studio, and it's the first thing clients see as they enter, next to two O'Brien Schridde framed prints. We did have to reconfigure a structural beam to make it work, but anything in the name of art!" We love this creative display, and that it can easily be updated to be fresh and new!

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!
