Selecting Photo Frames
Those who are new to photography often wonder how to choose the right frame for their artistic photos. While there are no fixed rules, there are some guidelines to picking out just the right photo frames.
The first thing to keep in mind is that you want the viewer to focus on the photographic image and not be distracted by the frame itself. A decorative, baroque-styled frame might be appropriate for a Rembrandt or a Courbet hanging in a prestigious museum – and perhaps even in the Great Room of your own restored Victorian home, if you happen to live in one. However, even older photographs generally call for photography frames that are understated and subdued; a simple wood finish or dark metal frame is probably the best choice.
Another thing has changed with the advent of digital photography, and that is the aspect ratio of images. Today; 4:3 (three by four units, i.e., 9” x 12”, etc.) is the most popular aspect ratio for most of today’s digital cameras. However, whereas in the past frames for photographs came in only a few standard sizes, today there are dozens, including 3:2 and the panoramic 1:3. FrameDestination is the first company to offer mats and frames to fit almost any aspect ratio.
Photography Frames are More Than Just Display
Of course you have every right to have your photographic masterpieces hanging on the walls in prominent places around your home, but it’s important to understand that framing is also a form of archival storage as well. If you hope to preserve your photos, it’s not enough to simply slip them into photo frames and forget about them. Mat board, mount board and glazing are all photo framing supplies that are needed in order to protect your photographic images from moisture, dust, ultraviolet rays and acidity.
Photography frames are the finishing touch to a photographic masterpiece – and yours deserve no less than top-quality photography frames from FrameDestination.com!
