Frames: The Crowning Touch to Your Photographs


You have it--that special moment, captured for all time. Now you want to showcase both the moment and your accomplishment in capturing it, whether it's a first step, a first kiss, a sunset or that perfect bloom from your garden, but what's the best way to share?

Whether you want to display a traditional photo from a negative, a print from your slideshow or a digital picture, have it enlarged to the size you want and place it on your wall or tabletop. The proper frame will serve to better show off your efforts.

The frame should accommodate the picture without having to trim the print excessively. If you've taken the time to have the print made correctly, the cropping of the subject should already be done and it should fit securely in the frame that you chose for it.

Once you have set the size, you'll have some other decisions to make. First, do you want to have a matte for your picture? A matte will allow you an opportunity to add color and highlight certain elements of the picture or reinforce an overall theme. For example, a slate blue matte for sailboats, varying hues of light brown for beach settings, and pastels for spring photos of children hunting Easter eggs could all add a nice touch to photos. When you buy picture frames, the choices are limited only by your taste. The matte should extend around the photo, but need not be equal on all four sides. The final size of the matte will determine the size of the frame; if an 8x10 photo is surrounded by an 11x14 matte, you would need a frame for an 11x14 picture.

Prepare your frame for hanging or display by means of an easel or prop stand. You may select the frame to blend with the overall decor of its setting or as a contrasting piece to draw more attention to it. Choose a frame that's gilded, metallic, with glass or without, whatever suits your taste. Be bold or restrained, avant-garde or traditionalist and let your inner artist shine through as you crown your photographic accomplishments.
