Growing up we had a close family friend who had every inch of her living room walls covered in large wooden picture frames filled with collages of photos. I was so excited as a young girl to jump up on her couch and stand on the tallest cushions to investigate. I was thinking I had the best view possible since all the photos were too small to see if you weren’t up close. You could see she was proud of her family and wanted to share her happy memories but looking back with adult eyes all I remember now is how cluttered her walls looked. The frames that encased the collages of photos took up more room than the photos themselves. It’s a shame I don’t remember the details of her photos. But I do remember she REALLY liked oak frames.
Now that I have a started a family of my own and am decorating my home with the memories we have captured in photos, I too want to share them with the world. Or at least the world that makes it through my front door. I want the pleasure of being reminded how much love and happiness we have. Luckily in 2015 I can do this by complimenting my decor and not over running it with collage frames. I personally have started using the moments that ultra-spective has captured in photographs as my personal canvas art.
Photography has come a long way from framing a collage of small 4×6 prints on a wall. With quality photography you can now have your photos be the piece of art that stands out and not the clunky frame. Canvas prints can come as small as 5×5 and as large as your imagination will allow. Or maybe I should say, as large as your living room wall will allow.
Awhile back ultra-spective made the conscious effort to share our love of canvas with our clients. You may notice that when you call us at the gallery, we answer your call by letting you know that we create “Custom Wall Art For Your Home”. The reason we made this change is that we want you to celebrate your family, your loved ones, your beauty. You can’t celebrate those things if it is on a disk shoved into a drawer. There is no beauty to behold if you can’t see it. We know you love your photos, so why not enjoy them everyday instead of just tagging yourself in a digital photo online? Life is more than a profile pic.
