4. Choose Your Frames
The photographer’s job is not over after simply taking a photo. A part of the job of taking a photo is choosing the correct framing or way of display. The frame is an essential aspect of the process of creation. Selecting a frame can change the whole perspective of your family photo.
The most popular frames available are:
Wood frames – Wood frames can bring a warm and classic feel to your family photo.
Black frames – A solid-colored black frame can spotlight the beauty of your family picture, giving a formal and elegant look.
White frames – White solid-colored frames can bring a more casual feel and are commonly used to frame landscape pieces.
Metallic frames – Metallic frames can bring out the aesthetic of your family photo.
When used right, these styles can amplify your family photo tons.
That said, choosing your frame or how to display it is your second step after choosing which family photo you would like to use. A lighter-colored frame is more suited for a casual snapshot. It can accentuate your family photo, giving it a more positive feeling.
Otherwise, picking a dark frame can significantly enhance the elegance of your family’s picture. Ensure that your family photo’s frame isn’t too similar to your wall color; this will clash and give a hectic look.
Alternatively, you can use canvas, metal, or wood prints. Each will bring a different aura and mood to your living space. Canvas prints are ideal for gallery walls and give you that impressive and expensive-looking finish.
Wood prints can give you a more rustic and country style to your home and add depth to the colors in your family photo. Metal prints are becoming more popular as they last longer than traditional wooden or metallic frames and give you a smooth and contemporary feel.
