Photo Framing

Hey guys, I'm back after a long absence. I moved to the US for my higher studies and have been kind of busy lately. Anyway, I'm planning on doing an individual photo exhibition at my uni next semester. I have 31 photos I plan to display. So I'm thinking of ways to frame those pictures. Any suggestions on that? Also, the US standard sizes are ummm a bit weird? our standard sizes are different. my prints are 10 x 15, which compliments my camera's image sensor ratio, so that I don't have to crop anything out. if I crop them to 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 (the US standard), it's going to mess up the composition. so if I'm gonna do my frames there, it has to be custom made frames. pre-cuts won't do. and I don't think I can do the frames here because then it's gonna be bulky to transport. I'm back in Sri Lanka these days and flying back on the 19th.

I appreciate your input in this matter Thank you!

Re: Photo Framing

I think that I'm right in saying that 'proper' photo frames are based on the ratio 5:4 - hence the old whole plate is 10x8 inches, and other popular sizes are 5x4, 15x12, 20x16 30x24 etc.

Digital cameras have different aspect ratio (except some high end ones where you can change the aspect ratio) of 3:2 and this is the same as the international paper size. This means that if you are keeping this ratio you have to source frames that conform to this convention - that is A4, A2, A1 or B5 etc.

Of course, if you crop your images, unless you keep either of the two aspect ratios mentioned, you will not be able to get off the shelf frames.

Re: Photo Framing

Thank you. I already have my photos printed. I'm thinking of using matte boards. But I have no experience when it comes to framing photos.
