"How to Curate a Photo Gallery Wall in Your Home”
When adding a photo gallery to your home, the BEST plan is to do your planning before your portrait session. Wear colors that compliment the color scheme of your home. Opt for locations that reflect the style of your home, or choose a studio session. For example, if your decor is coastal, do a portrait session at the beach. If your home is modern, do a session downtown.
If you already have the portraits and they don't fit the pre-planning tips, or you have an eclectic mix of portraits you want to display, then opt for black and white images. Together, they will create a cohesive collection. And opt for frames that coordinate or, even better, choose frameless wall art options, such as metal prints or acrylic prints.
Mike got photographers from across the nation to contribute to this article and I was fascinated to read the different suggestions. I think you, too, will enjoy it!
