7 METHODS FOR CHOOSING WHICH IMAGES TO Printing FOR YOUR HOME
Within the last month I set a goal to print a few of my work and put it to use to beautify my home. As professional photographers, we spend our time and skills to develop our skills so that ultimately we can create works of art! I love to think of images as the icing on the cake. After all of the hard work, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing your images on the net and exhibited as art!

Smaller artwork is better to come across, it's simpler to store and it's generally cheaper - so most people have a lot more small stuff, which works great if you have a snug bedroom, or a cramped hallway. But in an expansive room with high ceilings? Not so much.
Think of the wall structure around a bit of art as part of the art. You want to buy to be always a natural expansion of what's there. If the art's too small, it will be confused by the emptiness and fade away - and it will produce a timid and helpless vibe. Whether it's too big, it'll feel like a giant wearing too-small trousers - also not a good look.
For large spots, there are several alternatives: the first is simply looking for larger pieces of art. The second is to choose something that's not a framed image (more about that below). And the 3rd is by using several works of art in combination with one another, to produce a larger piece.
With high ceilings and large wall space, a small piece of artwork above the bed simply won't do.
For example, in my own home, the bed room (pictured above) has vaulted ceilings that reach 17 ft in height. A little dinky framed thing above the bed simply wasn't going to minimize it. I needed something bigger.
Choose a Kind of Art work That Works
Art work isn't simply a framed print out or poster. There are quite a few other decorative choices you may make. For instance, buying a wall-mounted shelf and putting figurines or vases on it can be considered a smart way to decorate a larger space using collectibles that you already have. Or, getting aggregate designs to take up a larger space could work well, such as this Umbra Wallflower arranged - check out their site for further options.
Other choices include mounting decorative plates in a row, putting up a large reflection or using decals - which can be surprisingly hip and often look good. Check out WallPops!, for a few ideas.
When deciding what you would like to put on a wall membrane, it's okay to believe outside the pack. A big framed picture is usually the least interesting (and often most expensive) choice. (Though, for my bedroom example, I selected three 16"x20" framed images - rather orthodox.)
When using a collection of different colored and textured frames, choose dark-colored and white images to keep them from looking cluttered. Black & white images can also supply the display a far more unified look. I put my pal Kristen from Studio7 HOME DESIGN help me choose ornamental frames & art for a small gallery wall in my entry.
This was a wall that could normally go un-noticed. I needed to carefully turn it into a focal point. I placed all my images in dark-colored & white except the family picture in the center. The target was to bring the attention there first, then to the dark & white images in the outside frames. In the same way as effective is always to choose colourful images for sound black structures or sound white framessuch as this wall structure, also created by my friend Kristen.
Choose larger measured images and canvases for areas where you can see them across the room. What's the idea in producing small 4x6's and 5x7's if you cannot see them if you don't walk up to them?
The prints on my mantel would have to be big (at least 16x20) in order to take pleasure from them from over the room. The top some may be a 22x27 inches size. I actually may have vanished bigger for the area available, but I didn't want to repay the decorative trim-work of the entire mantel. So, obviously, consider the space you are filling when deciding how big you can go.
I also chose a more timeless, imaginative image of my family walking, rather an enormous portrait of our faces. This was a personal decision when i was going for a more artistic believe that proceeded to go with the style and colors of the room. Even though our faces remain unseen, we are incredibly well represented by the composition in the image as well as in the close up of the kids in the image next to it.
Too many portraits all over your home? Try converting some of your images into skill using the Waterlogue app! This is a sensible way to use your images, but provide them with another type of look. My home design friend recommends showing artwork or still life/food in your kitchen, somewhat than portraits. An image turned through this software might be considered a good option. Here's a good example of an image turned into art work using the Waterlogue app. (Image by Liz Behm)
Choose photos to display that were taken in that one room of your home. For example, food picture taking in the kitchen, lifestyle images in the living room, bath images of your children in the tub shown in the toilet, and more personal photos in the bed room.
Last week I determined I needed to fill the space above a doorway in my own kitchen with some food images.
Considerations I created before I had taken the images:
Just how much space I had a need to fill and just how many images.
Appropriate size with the space.
The style/colors that would go well in my own kitchen.
How those images would look from across the room.
Because I couldn't go bigger when compared to a 10x10, I thought we would use my macro lens and tried to fully capture close-up textures of the fruit vs. a more styled shot with atmosphere that could be harder to see from over the room.
Edit your images to complement the style of the space it will be in. For example, light and airy, rich in color & distinction, dark & white, etc. Also, if you are displaying images collectively, edit them hand and hand in your editing program to be sure they mix well and the colour is regular from image to image.
I did this with my fruit images. I migrated them around in Photoshop to help me visualize how they might look hung. I separated the blueberry image (usually blue) and the grapefruit (blue qualifications) with the yellow pineapple in the middle so each image would stick out and look balanced next to each other.
