How to Easily Make Your Own Photo Canvases at Home

This is a simple yet very personal and special project you can do at home for your clients, family, or your own walls.

This technique is usually used in the fine arts and street art world, so adding this to digital photography is a cool way to merge the two worlds.

Why You Need to Print and What to Print Your Images On

For this reason, printing your images can not only improve your perspective but also help with regards to improving your photography.

Three Lessons ShootProof Can Learn From Pixieset

When I first discovered ShootProof, I loved it. The idea of handling all of my file delivery as well as print sales from an online platform easily through my website was just amazing. But after a good amount of time, I grew frustrated with a couple flaws in their system that were deal-breakers for me. I then switched over to Pixieset and haven't looked back.

Would You Buy a Photograph Without Seeing It First?

Hanging a photograph from your wall will always have its appeal. Make that photograph the work of a famous and respected artist, and the appeal starts to rise. This is why well-established artists can demand such a high price tag for their work. But this entire process relies heavily on the person purchasing the piece to actually enjoy the art. If the photograph does not resonate with you, then it loses a lot of its value. With that in mind, would you buy a photograph without actually seeing it first?
