    Farmable and frames

    General question. What makes a picture worth hanging on the wall and what makes a picture stay in the photo album?

    And when hanging it on the wall, how do you choose the media (paper, canvas etc...), mounting/frame and flashing for the picture? How do you decide on colour, mass, detail/complexity of the frames and size of the flashing?
    Best Regards, Mark (Criticism encouraged on all my photos. Thanking you for your guidance).

    Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 | Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 | Canon Flash 420EX | Manfrotto tripod

    (I want: Canon EF 24-105 mm f4L IS | Canon 50mm f1.4 prime | Cokin filters (NDx1; GNDx1) | Sun reflector)

    I feel that it`s really a heart thing. If you love the pic that much...just do it. Are there any rules......not according to me.

    I get photos printed that I like. Ones that I want in my home. Most of these have some emotional connection more than being technically brilliant. They are part of my life.

    How they are printed and framed depends on the content of the photo, and really the only way to start understanding which of your photos would look good on which medium is to start getting out and seeing others work, on canvas, matt, gloss, metallic paper etc and you will start to think things like 'hmm, that photo of grandma would look great on a canvas like this one'.

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    Sorry, but I'll be of much less help.

    Now "farmable" pictures I'd just put out to pasture.

    Is there a camera club near you.

    Apart from good general advice they'll probably get regular visits from frameco or the like that may help you.
