Choosing The Right Picture Frame
Since the first photograph was taken in 1822, humanity has been fascinated and obsessed with recording the world as we see it, one shutter click at a time. Major historical events and everyday happenings have been captured on film, each and every one telling its own version of life as we know it. And while many of these images have been lost or discarded as time goes on, quite a few of them have been meticulously collected and displayed for the world to see and enjoy.
Nowadays, with the advent of digital cameras, smartphones, and tablets, many of the photographs we capture exist as 1Ãs and 0Ãs all over the internet and on memory cards in desk drawers. However, some of the pictures we take become lovely and interesting centerpieces on walls, desks, and tables in our homes, offices, and galleries. These pictures are often simply pinned or taped up. But others are carefully wrapped in glass and wood, preserving the image within for years to come. Since the early days of photography, the simple picture frame
has been a necessary complement and functional accessory for the images and photographs we have come to cherish.
Why Your Beloved Photographs Need A Picture Frame
A picture frame is a relatively simple concept. The idea behind a picture frame is to showcase your photograph, painting, or image to draw the viewer's eyes toward the subject. At the same time, a picture frame is meant to compliment the world around it. Oftentimes, a picture frame can actually enhance the photograph itself, acting like a sort of decorative boundary that helps to bring a picture to life.
In addition to the beauty and elegance of a well crafted picture frame, there are also functional aspects that cannot be discounted. A picture frame protects your photographs and paintings by shielding them from tears, wrinkles, bends, and creases. Coupled with a transparent covering made of glass or plastic, a picture frame will protect your images from the rigors of life and the passage of time. Picture frames also allow for the hanging of the photograph
or painting on a wall to to be propped up on a surface for all the world to see.
A picture frame is essentially a literal extension of your photograph that enhances and protects. And that's why we at EasyFrame are in the picture frame business. We understand the importance of your photographs, pictures, drawings, and paintings. And we are committed to providing the best custom picture frames available online at an affordable price.
