Wall art is one of the important features of a perfect home. If you love photography or even a beginner at it, you would love to have some pieces that you can display in your home. It is also a great way to have all your best photos in front of your eyes. If you have taken beautiful photos of your favorite places or things, it is best to turn them into wall art
so you can not only show them off but ensure that they are provided with the well-deserved place in your home.
You can not just make images larger to hang on your walls but also make them smaller to go as wall prints and papers. It will not only give your house your unique touch and individuality but will also make your house look really cool.
Many people go all out and spend a lot of money on wall art. If you go to any home decor shops and any designer brands for wall art, you will have to pay insane money for just one really cool shot. A lot of us dont know that one road picture with beautiful lights that we have taken a while back will look a lot cooler on your walls, and you will actually save tons of money as well. Or if you dont have any such picture, you can start taking them and see how better your own shots can be.
Let us help you with the tips to take perfect pictures
for turning in to wall art.
1. Get a professional camera
Beginners can take photos with any camera, but once you feel like you have the skills for better photos or are ready to put your pictures on walls, you definitely need a better camera.
Below are some of the camera recommendations:
● Sony A7 Full Frame: This is one of the most convenient and affordable cameras and can be bought for under $1000.
● Canon 5D Mark III: This is a professional camera and a great choice for high-quality pictures. The price range is around $2000.
● Canon 5D Mark IV: A go-to for stunning images, and when combined with a great lens, the results will be just beautiful. The price range is around $3000.
2. Plan your photos
Good photos rarely happen by chance, so choose the places you love, which are natural and less crowded. When you are done with finding the right location nearby or if you have gone on a trip, that is even better, choose the spaces that you really love, try moving in a circle and note possible compositions. Find north or south facing locations as they will provide the most light for texture. Also, check if the east and west sides will provide great lighting during the early morning or late afternoon for more glowing lights. Few photo apps provide this information, so you can use those.
3. Check weather conditions
All you have to remember is that bad weather is good photo weather, particularly during the clearing up time after a storm.
4. Click your shot
Once you find that perfect shot, all you have to do is click, and you are good to go.
5. Find those perfect ones
You will find many pictures of the same place, but some would be a lot better than others or even slightly better, the tip is to find ones with proper lighting as well as a wow factor. The beauty is mostly subjective, but you also have to consider the main sentimental value of the photo as well. You can hang just any picture at your home, but the sentimental value of it will actually prove the point of it being worthy enough.
The beauty and sentimental value are broad topics and are mostly based on personal interpretation. Whatever you choose has to give a message, and thus the point of hanging them in homes would be coming across.
6. The image quality matters as well
You can print any image and hang it on your wall, but not every picture will look good after being printed. If you are going for smaller prints, the image quality wouldnt be impacted as much, but the larger prints can definitely go out of hands if the quality is not great.
Quality is mostly influenced by the following factors:
● The way of saving the image
● The type of camera you are using
If you save pictures directly in JPEG format, it is great for personal use and sending to print labs, but the downside is that you wont be able to play around by editing these pictures. If you dont want to edit pictures, then you are good to go with JPEG formats. However, the solution for it is that the photographer shoots
the images is the RAW file format and then edits the picture and finally compresses in JPEG format.
