Digital Framing (archive repost)

21 December 2013

 

I’ve no idea why in this contemporary digital age we still add old fashioned frames digitally.

 

Fortunately it’s a style that has pretty much died off now, a couple of years back it was ever so common.

 

So, I’ve been messing around building some new frame styles that have a modern and contemporary look to them.  Here are some ideas.

I particularly like that you can tell a story with use of a few frames.

 

Also, depending on your layout, unconventional cropping of the images adds a bit of fun and interest too.

Also sometimes a set of images can be stronger by putting them together than seeing them separately.

And sometimes you just want to show off a lot of images in one go.

Alright I know I complained about cliché frames, but it still works.
