Because you more than create art (you live it), here are three weekend projects to invigorate your living space, to zhoozh up your studio, or to share with clients (coupled with studio sessions, naturally).
This arrangement of square (think Instagram) images creates a delicious lineup in a modern room, a hallway, or even a kids' area. Simply drop images into to a rounded edge border, or create a collage.
Are you a free-style collector of images? This display is flexible, so change it up as often as your dÃ©cor (or mood) dictates. You might need a handyman (or woman) to securely attach standard moldings from the lumber mill to the wall, but the extra effort is worth it. Ledge Love: We recommend using frames in a curated palette for the best results (here, earth tones and metal, all with simple white or linen mats). (image credit: habituallychic.blogspot.com)
Use Polaroids (below, left) left to form a heart-shape and attach photos with poster putty to the wall or affixed to a light foam core board for a dazzling display Cupid would approve of. Be Mine: For an easier solution, try our "70 Reasons to Love Me" (below, right). Design Aglow's action-based templates create speedy layouts for canvas, framed prints or even wallpaper clings!

Have some inspiring photo displays in your own home? Why not send us some pictures for a feature here? We would love to hear from you!
As photographers, we’re always on the lookout for new tools that will make our workflow faster and easier (while making our images look their best), and when we found Mastin Labs’ film presets for Lightroom, specifically Fuji Pro, Ilford B&W and Kodak Portra, we knew we had hit gold!
We downloaded and installed all three, and watched the included Getting Started tutorials Edit Your First Image and Using Tone Profiles that hold your hand and walk you through the presets and how they work.
The presets are incredibly easy to use, and quick to apply. And, we love that they are designed to replicate the films that we have known and loved.
