How should I display my images? Idea #14
WHAT: For Clients | WHEN: May 26, 2008
|When clients come in to view and order their images after their session, many times they feel a little overwhelmed just trying to narrow down to the images they want to order, let alone trying to figure out what sizes they need and how to display the images they choose. In addition to putting together a little inspiration guide and worksheet that I now give to each client at their session, I thought it might be helpful here on the blogapolooza to occasionally show a few ideas that might help in getting the wheels turning.
Idea # 14 (really there is no 1-13, I just didn't want to start with idea #1... it seemed so insignificant. And starting with idea #343 seemed a little over the top. Marketing gimmick at it's finest, I know.) is one of my favorites.
So for this first idea, uh, I mean this 14th idea, make a series of 3 images and display them together on a ledge (shown) or hanging on a wall. The images should be large enough to have impact and be visible from across the room without being too big that they fill the wall to where it feels crowded. Leave a little breathing room around the images for a clean, simple layout that is a stunning focal point in a room.
The images below are 14x30 canvas prints on 1.5" stretcher frames. I like "untraditional" print sizes like this when they're grouped together because they also make interesting solo pieces if you later want to break up the series. Ideally the prints could be spaced a tad further apart, but I only had a 48" ledge above the bed. A 60" would be perfect.
|Hope that helps! More ideas to come in future posts.|
