Living With Photography: 3 Simple, High Impact Displays

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!

The formula is simple.

clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer

We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.

Here’s a saying we find really annoying: “do what you love, and the money will follow. Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
