Anyone else hanging?

Just prior to xmas my wife was out on a headless chicken xmas retail outing i decided to put up in various rooms around our house some framed prints that have done reasonably well in my club competitions. Our 19 year old daughter had just returned from uni armed with 15 bags of dirty washing and was of the opinion that i was going to get some form of "negative" feedback when she returned..............this opinion was infact to no avail as it only took her two days to notice them !!!
And our visiting friends and family over the festive break made some positive comments which i found pleasing, ive now decided ill get some other prints out of storage in a few months time and swap them over.
So just wondering how many actually frame and put their prints on display in their houses etc or anywhere else come to that.

Re: Anyone else hanging?

Good for you I have A4 mono prints of me, wife, twin sons and daughter hanging in a group in the kitchen. Not planned or anything, just ones I liked - they are really for my wife, she likes family photos

But....in the bathroom I have two framed A3 prints which I rotate about every four months or so. At the moment one is of the entrance to Glen Coe and the other is Kilchurn Castle at the top end of Loch Awe.

Oh and I have a colour portrait of the missus in the hall.

Re: Anyone else hanging?

Awwww - shame on you Fiona - one of my biggest regrets is that we did not have a family portrait before my wife died, one of my daughters did not "do" photos.

Got this on a canvas in my living room

Re: Anyone else hanging?

My Wife will not have any of my pictures hung in the house, but I've put one up on the stairs that you have to have a ladder to reach so she can't get to it to take it down. It is a 16x20 of this one with the street sign removed.



I've a couple of others of my Son and Grandson in my study. Not on the wall but on top of some shelving.

Re: Anyone else hanging?

All the pictures here are excellent. A friend of mine uses 'photobox' for his images. I am still all over the place with colour space / monitor calibration etc. I printed some yesterday on my HP general purpose printer to get a feel of what they might look like but they came out a bit dark. Is it correct some on-line printing sores provide a colour profile.

Graham, still trying to compare monitor software, is there a specific thread here that does it. Regards

I don't recall one. There are some threads about specific products, but few people have had more than one, so getting a comparison is difficult. We have some information in our Equipment Reviews

Pixalo Photographic Equipment Reviews - Computer Monitors & Calibration -

But I suspect that it is not current. The info there might be useful though in terms of ease of use etc.

Probably best to see if there are any reviews either on line or in a magazine where several products have been tried and compared.

I have just updated my website with a section on Colour Management so have a look as there might be a tip which helps you.

On the original question, I do have 5 of my prints (near A3 size) hanging in the house. All of them have been successful in competitions but are also generally public friendly rather than specialised competition prints. My wife produces various pictures in needlework and hangs some of these as well (more than 5). I could hang more but, as I enter my images in many competitions and Exhibitions, I do not feel the need to further display them.

Re: Anyone else hanging?

There are one or two of mine haning around the house, only to copmpete with several of the wifes cross stitch creations though.
There is a view over Whalley Nab in Lancashire; waves crashing at Lands end and the Great Pyramids. All three were taken quite some time ago, in fact all were film images. Maybe its about time I changed them!

Re: Anyone else hanging?

My husband particularly liked this one and we have it in A3 at the end of the hallway. And I have a couple of odds and ends in standing photo frames as well



I like the idea of a rotating display - think I'll look into that

Re: Anyone else hanging?

I have various family photo's about the place, some decent shots that we all just like of various bits of scenery of places we visit, and some "Temporary" photos that get changed every now and again, the good ones getting a proper frame.
