|My photographs on canvasses - water theme. Lighting in this area is limited so this photo is not as bright as I would like although it does seem I could hang a little straighter/better.|
In this posting, I am showing my photographs rendered on canvas that I used near the "foyer" area of this space and providing some tips and techniques of how to make this personal art option work for you.
|Foyer area of renovated space. I did end up placing a lamp on table and choose to place it in front of picture with least detail - not ideal but as workable as I can get it.|
- Finished canvas size was determined by availability from photo canvas vendors as well as the amount of space that I wanted to cover. I made my decision when I was able to pick up an online 50+% off deal for photo canvasses that included 20X24 - just big enough to work together for the space available and at a good price (about $50 per image - reduced from almost $130).
- Image selection and composition was strongly influenced by my interest in using black and white images to create a more cohesive look. Since none of my photos had been taken in black and white, I had to find ones that could be converted to black and white and retain their interest and power. I looked for strong value contrasts (lights and darks) and experimented with quite a few before selecting a theme and then the final four.
The other element to consider at this time is photo resolution - you need to make sure the image selected is sufficiently large to create a good image. I always take large resolution photos - at least I have for prior three years. Earlier images tended to be too small for a crisp 20X24 size.
I liked how this set turned out and how it looks on the wall. For anyone who takes lots of photos, this is a nice personal art solution for the home. This posting is linked here - Romantic Home
