Years ago, picture rails were the norm for homes, mainly because the ceilings were higher, walls were much tougher and it was easier to hang hooks from rails than it was to constantly knock holes in the walls each time you wanted to hang a picture. Then homes became smaller, walls became weaker and the functionality was replaced with the damage control decor of the dado rail.
Macro photography is up close and magnified. Macro photographers have specialised equipment to capture the types of photographs and video clips seen in nature documentaries.
Self-storage is on the rise, still! It has been for years. Britain has the largest self-storage industry throughout Europe. Some people use it for short-term storage solutions, others use them for the long haul. Some sites are multi-complex buildings with staff, others are self-storage containers, which are essentially reconditioned shipping containers transformed into storage units located on secure sites, usually within industrial estates.
Photos are extremely fragile. They are, after all, just ink printed on paper. Inside of frames, they are protected but frames are not infallible. They will be weakened when wet or exposed to higher humidity levels than they can handle. They are designed for use indoors, not for humid greenhouses.
Any camera can take stunning silhouette photos. All that’s required is the right lighting (artificial or sunlight) because you are effectively taking a photo of a shape. When it’s printed and framed, the viewer gets to see enough of an outline to imagine what the photo is.
It is a simple way to create your own dramatic photographs without hiring a pro.
With summer upon us, it is the time of year to be out, and about, soaking up the sun and capturing terrific summer photos to print and display proudly for that glorious summer feel any time we need it.
There can come a point in our lives when we have too many photos. Life flies by and before we know it, we are in a situation where downsizing is essential for any number of reasons. Mainly the children fleeing the nest.
The bigger your family, and the distance between you all, the more photos you will likely have.
Different rooms throughout your home need different energy levels. The colour of your décor is usually the main way this is created. Pale blues in the bathroom, beige to relax in the living room, and perhaps some greenery in the hallway and kitchen.
Art connoisseurs appreciate everything there is involved in the creation of art. Those looking for paintings to beautify their homes can be astounded when they see the prices some paintings are listed at. Granted, a few are exceptional but those are the collector’s pieces. Art for home décor isn’t always pricey but it can take those new to the art world by surprise.
Apparently, these little pests - just one to two millimetres in length - are attracted to white and yellows. Unfortunately, those are the most popular colour choices for picture mounts.
These are what you’d call super pests. You never get one of them because they travel in swarms. There’s nothing in the frame for them to damage. They just find the tiniest gap in the frame, crawl in, suffocate and die.
