This post is just a little bit of information to help you with deciding what sizes to enlarge your images, what images to use and how you might arrange them.
First image shows a comparison of different sizes:
Let us now have a look at how an 8×12inch image holds its own against a 20×30inch sitting alone on a wall.
The 8×12 inch alone on the wall is swamped by dead space…
A nice big 20×30inch makes a statement…
The next 5 images show just a few examples of how you might arrange your photos on your walls. About a week after your session we will get together for your gallery viewing and ordering party. If a wall gallery is something you were contemplating then we can have a play around with your fave images, I can then create a few different wall galleries of those images. This can really help you to be able to conceptualise how they will sit on your wall at home. We can keep re-arranging the photos and sizes until you are happy with a gallery custom made for your home.
These last two images show that it can be important which image you choose to put up in a large format. The first image is a close crop of little Chloe’s face but when it is enlarged to this size and hung on the wall the image looks (in my opinion) larger than life and probably a bit too large as her head is the size of a small chair! The second image is exactly the same sized image on the wall (20*30inch) however as the photo is not such a close crop I think it has a nicer feel to it.
So if you are trying to decide if you want this image or that image? If you want a large one or lots of small ones? If you should arrange them in a particular order to make it look more aesthetically pleasing? … … … I can help with that. It’s all part of the service and I love doing it. 🙂
