living with photography: 3 simple, high impact displays

 

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 décor (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!

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you're not alone and there IS a solution:In-Person Sales. There's no limit to how much more money you can make by providing IPS instead of online sales or shoot & burn. Or how many hours you'll save because you'll be able to shoot fewer sessions to generate the same revenue. Or how many hours of sleep you'll get because you won't be worrying about money.

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!
