creative photo proof display idea

Today's creative share comes from Meghan of Meghan Valentine Photography.  She writes, "I bought twelve 3 foot sections of 1/8 inch wire and braced it into a loop. Then hung it on a white hook that is screwed into the wall. I then got a pack of magnets from Hobby Lobby with a strength of 6 (this is needed to keep the photos on the wire). I printed off a bunch of 4x6 inch prints so that I had a variety of vertical and horizontal. I could fit 7 horizontal on one wire and 5 vertical on one wire. I like it because it is a fun and different way to display my work. It is also fun for clients to see their photos and their friends photos. I recently had an open house for my studio and everyone raved about it. I really love they way it can transform a rather large area in such a personal way. Clients love it, love it, love it. I just had an open house at my studio and everyone was amazed at how it turned out and how personal and fun it really is. The kids loved finding themselves and finding their friends." This is a fabulous do-it-yourself project! We suggest using a set of our proof borders to add an extra special touch to the photos. Thanks for the share, Meghan.  Enjoy your $75 gift certificate on us~

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!
