7 TRICKS FOR CHOOSING WHICH IMAGES TO Printing FOR YOUR HOUSE
Over the past month I set an objective to print some of my work and use it to enhance my home. As photographers, we spend our time and skills to develop our skills so that in the end we can create artwork! I like to think of prints as the icing on the wedding cake. After all the hard work, there's nothing more rewarding than seeing your images on the net and displayed as art!

There are lots of tips out there on how to set-up gallery wall surfaces, and how to choose the right structures for your interior keyword. They are important decisions that need to be produced definitely as well. But since I'm a professional photographer, not an interior designer, I want to focus on deciding on the best images (that will best compliment your projects) for the spots you are filling.
7 tips to help you choose which images to print for your space
They are not design guidelines, just recommendations from a photographer's viewpoint.
Develop a folder on your desktop where you save your selected images. Be selective in support of save people you absolutely love. Within this folder create other folders to break down the various types of images. i.e. macro, food, lifestyle, portraits. As you edit your images, save your valuable favorites to these folders. This will keep them in one sorted out place so they are simply easy to find if you are ready to print. And it will save you time of time you would normally spend on combing your archives to find the right image each time you want to print.
Match the colors in your photographs to your d?cor. This is only a suggestion which may or may not be your style. I wanted the colors in my prints to enhance the colors of my decor. Since you search your archives, either look for images that contain certain complimentary tones in them, or you can change them in Photoshop or Lightroom to match!
The plants in these casings were actually more of a dark red when these were photographed. I evolved the shades to become more peachy and very soft to complement the lampshade these were next to. You can do this in Lightroom in the HSL and COLOR tab by tinkering with the hue, saturation, and luminance of the many colors in your photo.
A quick way to change colors in Photoshop is by choosing Image, Alterations, Color Balance in your menu. Then experiment with the color sliders for your shadows, mid tones and features. Make sure Preserve Luminosity is inspected.
Other ways you can match your designs to the colors in your house is to plan the next photo session with your display area in mind. What is the look and feel of your house? Choose a session location and/or clothing that will compliment the design of your home or the room where the images will be viewed.
Keep Coloring at heart
What color is the furniture in the room? What about the wall? Think about accent pillows? All these things subject and the art work (and framing) should match the colouring of the area around it. While this is tough, the results will be much better when everything is coordinated. Not matchy-matchy automatically, but of the same color family and feel.
In my own bedroom, for example, I chose three floral designs with softer hues that are brought out by the Wythe Blue of the wall membrane, while the casings are dark solid wood, matching the colour of the headboard and lampshades.
The floral designs are of the same color family as the wall structure and quilt, as the frames match the real wood of the headboard.
REMEMBER the Frame
If you choose to hang a graphic, the framework should complement both the d?cor of the room and the color and design of the part itself. You will also need to decide if you want matting or not - while matting can raise the wall membrane size of an inferior piece, be skeptical of allowing a printing to drown in its boundary. In most cases, smaller bits with large matting only do well if the image is very simple and obvious from afar. If someone needs to peer close up at a piece to appreciate it, intensive matting is a no-no.
As for the frame materials, there are several choices. A wood shape with a carved design can have a nice shabby-chic feel, particularly if it's been decorated. For a direct vintage look, simply dark wood structures work great. If you need a modernist or modern vibe, metallic or black casings are the way to go.
Also, if you like attractive d?cor, avoid being fearful to go with a bright-colored framework, particularly if the surrounding needs a pop as well as your color choice fits another highlight in the space.
Keep Costs Down Where You Can
If you're going with a printing, framing can be costly. Lower costs by only using designs that fit in standard-sized frames, which are very good cheaper than custom casings. You can even look for antique frames at garage and estate sales and then work backward, completing the photo after you have the frame.
Or, one of the advantages of a wall-mounted shelf or other unorthodox design is the lack of body - that can frequently be a big cost savings. There tend to be creative workarounds. The company Wellmade offers Gallery STiiCKs that can figure any poster on two factors for a portion of what traditional framing costs - that's what I decided for my three images above the bed.
There's also companies that printing photographs onto canvas or real wood - which don't need a frame in any way. If you are a shutterbug and have some great pictures you'd like to hang, this might be your chance. Shutterfly offers this service, for example, and you will often find half-off offers.
For my dining room (pictured above), which also offers high ceilings and mixes right into the living room, I had developed two designs made and opt for custom size for each that fit the wall-space flawlessly. Because I'm a deal-hunter, the blended pair cost a lower amount than $100 - about the price tag on getting one large-ish poster custom framed.
Choosing the right art for a sizable space isn't easy - but it could be done invest the the time to essentially plan out the thing you need. Think through the size, type, coloring, framing and cost of what you would like. And get ideas from the internet and beyond - sites like Houzz can provide you great ideas, as can home d?cor newspapers, or even just shopping at home goods stores and seeing how they have their showrooms set up.
The key is visualizing what you need before you have it and then patiently working toward finding the right art work at the right cost for your space. Don't dash things - Rome wasn't built-in a day, and your home won't be decorated per day. But when your property is fully decorated, it will look fabulous!
