One frame to frame them all!
Quick! Reach between the couch cusions, empty out the change jar, run down to the thrift store, and splurge on one fabulous frame to fancy up all your photos.
We were inspired to hit the streets, frame in hand, by the work of Geo Geller, who shoots with a frame in each of his shots.
So get into the right frame of mind and read our tips!
Find a frame
Any frame will do for this project.
You want it to be small enough to fit in the shot if you hold it out at arms length in front of your camera, and big enough to fit a friend’s face.
We found a typical friend’s face to fit nicely in an 8×10 frame.
Take it out on the town
Simply hold the frame out in front of your camera or have a passing stranger hold the frame up for you.
A friendly grin and a polite “please,” will convince just about anyone to hold up a frame for a minute.
Not sure who to ask? We’ve found that a person with a camera around their neck is usually more than willing to do a favor for a fellow photographer.
Frame your Friends
Once your arm gets tired from holding your frame out in front of the camera, pass the frame around to friends and neighbors and let them do the heavy lifting.
They can frame themselves, frame each other, frame the dog.
Play a quick game of how-many-friendly-faces-fit-in-one-frame?
Think outside the box
Box, Frame, same idea. Some people will assume that if they’re not behind the frame, their not in your shot.
The area outside of the frame can be even more interesting than what’s in it.
Catch your friends’ true reactions to your photographic antics.
Have Fun Framing!
