Bringing Nature Into The Home With Nature Photography
Picture framing your own photography prints brings with it a sense of pride and fulfillment like no other. You’ve crafted the perfect shot from being out amongst nature to have it printed and hung on the wall in your home. The whole creative process executed by your own fair hands.
Nature is a distinct subject of photography, it is exquisite in its very essence. There is just something magical about capturing live species and incredible blossom in picturesque settings. From butterflies, bugs, birds, through to farm animals and pets, nature lends itself to a whole range of living things, having the innate ability to propel emotion just from the life behind it.
Transferring the hundreds of photographs expertly shot on film somewhere where they’ll be seen rather than left hoarded on a hard-drive is the most difficult bit, not technically, but how do you decide what to do with them? Some photographers are often too modest to frame their own prints in their own home. But, when you’ve worked so tirelessly out in the elements to get the perfect shot, which, we know, aren’t the easiest to achieve, to then spend hours in front of a screen manipulating the images, creating something magnificent post-camera, why would you not want to show off your work?
Framing your images gives both your work a more professional look, classic for the home, to suit every kind of décor.
Match up the subject of the image with your home interior
Nature photos usually feature a subject within it where the focus is usually on the subject itself, be it a plant, animal, or flower. This is important to match a photograph to complement the look of your room.
The home is a special place, you spend a lot of time (when you’re not in the wilderness behind the lens that is) there. Matching your interior with your personality, vicariously through your images, will give you a further sense of home, and can often end up as one of the main talking points when hosting guests.
Take some time, reflect and produce
Producing great prints takes a lot of time, and most photographers would rather spend much of that spare time behind the camera, rather than at the end of the printer. Taking some time out to edit and print your own photographs to frame can really have a positive effect on both you, your mood and your family as a photographer.
The rest of the household won’t mind either. It means that the house is decorated in beautiful imagery for just a fraction of the cost. What’s not to love?!
Bringing the outside in
As a nature photographer, you’ll no doubt be enthused by nature. Walking through magical woodlands, setting up at one with the landscape, searching for a way to bring the outside in.
Even if you’re not a photographer but love to be in the outdoors, being inside can sometimes feel like you’ve got cabin fever. That’s why we think it’s important to have your favourite places snapped and displayed in a beautiful picture frame to suit your style, so on a rainy day, you feel closer to what’s outside.
