Alexandria bought some reasonably priced frames to use for her students’ work in an upcoming exhibit. The frames are for 8.5×11 paper, and since I had a couple of test prints from my pinhole series laying around, she went ahead and framed them up. We had some discussion about my printing the ‘landscape’ oriented photos vertically on the paper. I really don’t have an explanation for this, other than that I generally like that presentation. Although I printed the images ‘bottom weighed,’ in my opinion they are they are still a bit too low on the paper. That is one of the reasons why it is helpful to frame things up. It brings a ‘seriousness’ to the photo that is lacking if it is reproduced just on the computer, or on a piece of paper laying around in a box. Of course, I used to cut mats for all my photos before I would even attempt to frame them, but I have pretty much stopped doing that.
Anyhow, here is a ‘quick and dirty’ photo of Gunfight at High Noon….pinhole framed. Although I tried and thought I had eliminated my shadow from intruding into the frame, that obviously is not the case.
