Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

For those who are proud of their photographic abilities part of their enjoyment of their craft comes from displaying photos in their homes and offices. Whether you are an amateur or a professional photographer, it is satisfying and comforting to have your personal work around you. Most people display their photos in store bought photo frames on mantles or tables, and this is fine, but it can be fun to explore other creative ways to display your photos.

A photographic wall is a great way to display photos and has a big decorative impact. There are numerous ways to create a photo wall and it doesn't have to cost you a lot of money. If you prefer a uniform modern look, you can purchase a group of black frames with white mats. The key to this type of display is that all the frames are the same and you end up with a cohesive, clean look. You can print up black and white or colour prints of your own work to insert into the frames and easily change them from time to time for variety. The same black frames could be used with brightly coloured mats and black and white prints for a completely different look. Your decor, whether modern or traditional, will dictate what type of frames you use and what colour the frames and mats should be. To help you get the look you want, lay out the frames on the floor or a table before you hang them to get an idea of how they will look on the wall. Doing this gives you the opportunity to rearrange the photos before you start making holes in your wall. When hanging the paintings, measure well and use a spirit level.

Another popular way to hang a group of photos is to purchase or make a large frame, attach rows of wire, or even twine, at the back of the frame and hang photos on the wire using clips or clothes pegs. This creates a trendy display of lots of photos that can easily be changed so you never tire of them. This is a good option for a young person’s bedroom or dorm room. A similar display method is created when you string a wire across a room and attach photos with metal clips. Even string can be used to create the same effect inexpensively.

An inexpensive room divider screen is also a great place to display photos. There is no need to purchase a screen that you insert photos into, you can create your own with inexpensive wooden frames that you attach chicken wire or peg board to. Even an old bulletin board can be used to display photos. Simply paint the frame and pin the photos on the board, or cover the cork with wrapping paper or fabric for a designer look.

When you display photos you have taken yourself you can feel proud of your photos every day. Next time you see a great photo display use your video camera to record it so you can replicate it in your own home.
