At long last, I finally thought I’d print out some pictures in poster size. It was fairly easy to select the pictures because I honestly don’t have very many pictures which I feel would look nice on a wall, I find the whole concept a little bit odd. So I went for the minimalistic flower closeups, plus a tiger (I just have to decide between this or the one presented here).
The real problem lies in the presentation. I don’t want to have a picture which completely fills the frame so I just tried to use some lines for an artsy effect. I remember a few years ago I saw a big print where the use of white space around the picture was taken to extremes, I kinda thought it was a bit funny that half the price of that print is just empty space, really… But joking aside, it was a very effective presentation. You don’t need a physical frame when you create a print like that, all you need is a backboard and a sheet of glass for protection (and hanging up).
I’m reasonably happy with the frame now, but I don’t know what to do with the text. I want to have the title of the picture and I also want to squeeze in my name somewhere in there. But I just feel that the main text and my name are conflicting… maybe it’s a font problem, I can’t find anything that would work together and I don’t think it’s a good idea to the same font for both, unless I find a nice font in small caps so I could include both the title and my name under the picture. I’m sure I used to have a suitable font but I never remember to back them up when I reinstall the computer! I have one week to sort this out before the print offer goes out, so I guess I’ll have to do some font hunting again.
