Hello All -

I am taking a photography class and after each assigned week of shooting, we are supposed to display at least 5 photos for that assignment.

Does anyone have any good ideas how to display these prints? I am thinking about backing board with a matte on top with those little medal corner clips to hold the two pieces together.

I would really appreciate any input along with links and examples people can provide.

Thanks.

I think the answer to your question lies with the class instructor. How does he/she want the photos presented. In the photography classes I have taken, most people brought in 4x6 prints with a few bringing 8x10. I don't recall any pictures being matted or mounted.

For your class, I think the photo, itself, is what matters, not the presentation.

Good Luck,
Cal Rasmussen

Thanks Cal.

The instructor wants everyone to place their pics down on the table, but display them nicely. Using the mounting board with a pre-cut matte and clips to hold the two pieces together would allow me to re-use the display's every week.

I wanted to see if anyone else had ideas for ways to display pics. Or just see how others show off their work besides using the internet.

Well, this isn't exactly deep advice, but I've been told that pictures always look better with larger matts.

I haven't done my own matting to put that to the test.

Buy a selection of "Hinged" mats for your prints. Also buy a roll of drafting tape. This is like masking tape except it can easily be removed. Then buy a small role of sketching tissue. It comes in grey or pale yellow and is very thin. Use this to cover each mat+print. It will keep your work clean. When you go to display the work simply flip the tissue over.
