Let’s Create Together!

by Todd Smith on December 3, 2008

I’ve been inspired by some of my favorite bloggers and twitter friends to make this blog more of a conversation than a one-way broadcast. I’d love to hear your opinions and creative input on anything going on at Todd Smith Photography.

Right now I have a couple of projects that I would love your help with:

  • Help Create Framed Prints – I want to start running framing ideas by you to get your opinion. I’d also like to do some research on framing and learn what all the possibilities are. I’ll share my research and would love it if you could leave your tips here too. What kinds of frames do you have in your home?
  • Help Create The Best Calendar For Next Year – As many of you know, I didn’t make a calendar this year for several reasons. I tried a new printer, and a new large format, and higher price… and had problems. With your help, I would love to create a calendar for next year (2010) that will be both beautiful and practical for everyone. Your input is essential here. If you haven’t done it yet, please vote in the poll on my blog for your favorite wall calendar size.

If there’s anything you want to hear more about, or new pictures you’d like to see, let me know in the comments section. I’m looking forward to talking and creating with you!

P.S. I just gave my blog a new look. Check it out when you get a chance.

Hi Todd,
Great idea!
Regarding my impending online shop, I just purchased some Ribba frames from Ikea. Very reasonably priced! I like the black modern look of them for my photographs. Now I’m on the hunt for some subtle decorative silver frames. These frames will be for display purposes at my shop. I feel seeing the product in a frame will be more appealing for potential customers. Then there is the consideration of finding the right frames for my fine art. So many choices!!

Although for now at least I won’t be selling my pieces framed, I am considering providing matting services for customers. However, seems a lot of time and effort having to cut mats and backing boards. Might help to do a bunch at one time. In any case, should I decide this route, I’ll be using acid-free, archival products. Otherwise, if this is going to be too much hassle, I might end up just purchasing precut matting.
Cheers,
June

Thanks, June, for sharing your ideas about framing. It’s great to learn what other artists, like you, are doing and thinking.
