Choosing the right kind of Print and Frames for the Picture you like!

When it comes to customizing and building an artwork to go on your home/office walls, it takes a lot of thinking and consideration of various elements of the scene.

Below are a few insights to give you a basic idea of different kinds of papers, frames and finishes to go ahead:

A. Print Size

First element to consider is the size of the painting/photograph to go one your wall.  The size of the artwork will decide other factors considerably. For smaller sizes sleek frames will suit and so on. So first decide on the exact size considering other furniture items in the scene etc.

B. Different kinds of Papers

1. Photo Paper – Gloss Finish

Glossy paper is the most common paper for printing photos. It produces a sharp and vibrant image. Glossy paper is also very smooth to touch.

2. Photo Paper – Satin Finish

A satin Photo paper is a result somewhere between matte coated paper and glossy paper. The colors are still vibrant, but the shine is reduced. This can go for both paintings and photographs with a not so glossy effect and yet tints of shiny look and feel.

3. Laminated Photo Paper – Gloss Finish

The best example of a gloss laminated paper is in the form of a postcard. The main photo is on the front, along with a gloss laminate coat applied, which makes it even shinier. The back has the texture of plain card stock.

Laminating the paper makes the colors even more vibrant. It makes the image pop out of the print making it lively.

4. Laminated Photo Paper  — Satin Finish

A lamination is to provide protection to your print – a satin finish lamination on the top of your print will give it a semi-glossy edge. It should be considered when the intent is to make the image sharper and to alter the touch and feel to a lustrous side.

5. Canvas

Canvas is an extremely durable plain-woven fabric and the most popular surfaces to print photos and paintings. It retains the original painting effect and doesn’t necessarily require the glazing for protection.

6. Archival Paper

Archival paper is a specialized type of paper designed not to yellow or deteriorate with age. Excellent for preserving artworks of significant value, it is a cotton rag paper made from cotton pulp. Archival paper or Museum grade paper will ensure durability of the artwork printed on it.

C.      Mount

In the picture framing industry, a mount is a thin, flat piece of paper-based material included within a picture frame, which serves as additional decoration and to perform several other, more practical functions, such as separating the art from the glass.

Photos printed on paper will always be prone to warping or buckling. Mounting aims to prevent this and give photos a solid basis for display by fixing them to a firm backing.

Mounting and matting also give photographers more options when it comes to frame sizes. Instead of being forced to make a photo fit standard frame dimensions or being limited to standard frame sizes for wall display, a mounted photo can be inserted into a much larger frame – or a frame of non-standard dimensions – by cutting the mounting board to fit the frame.

D.     Frames

An artwork should always be framed to give it the right definition and to distinct it on your wall!  The choice of frame depends on the color of the wall and the prominent colors of the artwork. You can either match it or go contrast or go for a standard wooden brown color. Currently two types of frames which one can use are as below:

1. Aluminum Frames

More metallic looking, these frames are suitable for contemporary pictures . They  are plain and are ideal if there is already too much in the picture and you don’t want to draw the focus away from the picture itself.

2. Fiber

Fiber frames can easily replicate the need of a wooden frame without being wooden for real. They come in various textures, sizes, colors and prints and cam go with both a pop art piece and an elegant one depending on the artwork!

All the above mentioned printing and framing options are available on www.artoreal.com once you have bought a photograph and want to give it a customized finish.

Apps Redefining Art

While we all have been admiring deep down in our hearts those amazingly painted frames up on the walls or the beautifully captured and well-timed story telling photographs, the poetries or fictions whose vocabularies astound us or the melodic music that just fills our heart more than the ears –admit it or not but we at the same time are also wondering and aspiring to create some of those artworks ourselves!

Technology today when is replacing even the need of human communication with its super intelligent apps like Siri for i-phones, it’s also in process of making artists!

Check out here how all the tech –savvy artists are using some great apps to enhance and groom their Artistic talents!

Photography
Clicking a picture is one thing (off course the most important one) but editing it beautifully is yet another important part! Most of the pictures that drool us online are ‘edited’ (though we are not talking about the extent of editing here)

  • To set the trend – INSTAGRAM is what we would call a revolution! Bringing editing in 2 simple steps and on mobile phones, it’s the hot cake in Click-and-post photography trend!
  • Photoshop has always been considered the cookie-of-the-professionals and therefore, not many dared to even download it. But now with its app “REVEL” it’s picking up pretty fast!
  • Another very handy app is the BeFunky Photo Editor – offering you instant touch ups and cropping and collage making options!

Fine Arts

Scribbling on the back of class notebooks is what every great artist must have done and also those who are not-that-great artists , but anyway those notebooks are now sophisticatedly replaced by large LED screen mobile devices or tabs or i-pads – giving a digital screen , a few tools to draw, brush and paint and instantly share them with their networks!

  • SketchBook Pro
    Provides a range of professional sketching and painting tools including 60 preset brushes, layer blending and customizable brush settings. Compatible in Android 3.0 and above.
  • Fresco Paint Pro
    Described as a ‘mobile art studio for Android’, digital painting app Fresco gives you a variety of brushes, filters and effects to help you create some pretty impressive art images. The app autosaves your work every few minutes and image files can also be exported to Photoshop PSD format for you to continue working on at the office. There’s also a free version, Fresco Paint Lite.

Writing
Well, writing surely comes from within, but so what? Can’t it be edited on the outside, just a few letters here and there and woaah- you get a much better piece in hand than you ever wrote!

There are apps that provide you instant dictionary — and that must needed vocab touch up!

  • Poetreat is simple stylish interface that allows users to easily structure a rhyme scheme. Stuck on a word? It will instantly provide a plethora of options — even slant rhymes (you can find a rhyme for orange). Whether writing in iambic pentameter or traditional haiku, Poetreat provides the structure needed to create a literary masterpiece.
  • Merriam-Webster A dictionary app offers a range of options. The free version, contains the complete Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary but only a limited thesaurus. A comprehensive offering of synonyms and antonyms is available in the $3.99 version. This version also includes illustrations, and foreign words and phrases that are commonly used in English lit

Since we are all not that truly-inspired-from-within community so we surely like a little help on that front! Here are few reading apps that inspire you enough!

  • Scribd – Quick, convenient and largely free access to a huge archive of books and articles, in what is described as a ‘world digital library’.
  • Wattpad- This resource allows mobile access to one of the world’s largest free online publishers of fiction and poetry. With more of an emphasis on previously unpublished work, new writers can compare and contrast their own efforts to the wealth of produce currently available. Once they have seen what their fellow writers are up to, they can share their own work with the easy to use ‘create’ tool

Music
So we may all not be music composers necessarily but isn’t being an Art-Lover almost equivalent to Art-Creator (Otherwise who will appreciate the art being created)

But still we have a few apps here which give you the virtual feel of Music creation and editing!

  • Musyc
    In this one, from Fingerlab , you basically drag and drop little shapes onto the screen, and as they fall, they bang around and generate musical tones. You can draw lines and mazes. The shapes bounce and tumble around the lines and spaces, knock into each other.
  • Garage Band
    This app, from Apple, offers the best of both worlds. It’s loaded with “Smart Instruments” that play notes, chords and patterns with the push of a button. But it also has a set of virtual instruments you can play like the real thing, if you know how. There’s piano, drums, guitar and strings. You can record multiple tracks of your music, add fades and effects. You can also record your own voice, if singing’s your thing, or plug in an actual guitar or bass. The band Ultramods recorded its entire album, Underwear Party, using the mobile version of Garage Band.

Hope this article soothed your artistic + tech savvy nerves and will soon fill your phone with many new downloaded apps!

Tips for Rocking those Instaclicks – Instantly

1. Always take pictures with your regular camera app first. This will enable you to take advantage of the built in camera featureslike iOS or HDR

 

2. Getting that crop right is utterly important. Always centered placed subject gets too main course. Try something different with varying positions of the main subject – adding the glory of the serene background!

3. Add the angle! Awkward angles can reincarnate that pic you just took!

4. A little play with the straightening tool will bring your picture to life and will add the much required fun and vibrance factor into it

5. Do the basic edits first before jumping to the readymade effects straight away. Correct that shot with brightness & contrasts and then apply the effect you like. Scratching away the furniture before polishing always adds the sheen.

6. Use a combination of effects. Say Valencia-topped-pic once more topped with Low fi? Make your own effect!

7. Don’t overdo it – the Editing part! Don’t you want people to believe that this is an actual picture captured by you? Too much of editing will only end up making your real-life picture artificial and unbelievable. Keep it rather simple!

8. Adding a funky caption will convey half the idea of the picture! So don’t just click instead try reckoning on some word-play too!

Were we able to add anything to your already awesome sense of insta-photography?

 

Tips for Solving Three Common Problems in Photography

Photography is about capturing the best moments and objects as seen by the photographer. While passion of the photographer is the most important factor in clicking best pictures, there are some small intricacies to be managed so that the technicalities do not spoil the beauty of the picture.

In this post, we will take a look at three most commonly faced problems with digital photography and some tips and solutions for those:

#1 Red Eye

Thousands and thousands of photos are spoiled because of the bright red pupil in the photograph, called as red eye. Now, rather than understanding the technicalities of why and how that occurs, let us look at some practical ways of avoiding it.

To avoid it, all you need to do is change the camera angel so that the light does not directly enter the eye –click the photograph from slightly higher or lower angel. Try and avoid camera flash as much as possible – turn on the lights or use natural light. Stand farther from the subject.

Even after taking all the possible care, if you do find red eye (in the otherwise good photo), check out if your digital camera offers an in-camera red-eye removal. Most of the cameras now do come with this feature!  You should be able to remove it using this very easily.

#2: Blurry Images

Agreed, blurry images do look artistic, but not always. You need to have some clarity in the photograph so that viewers can comprehend the objects in it.

One of the most common reasons for blurry images is camera shake. You can avoid camera shake by holding the camera close to your body and by standing with your legs approximately a shoulder-width apart. That will help you keep your body stable. Alternatively, you can use a tripod. Some cameras also offer image stabilization feature which can be utilized.

 

Reduce the shutter lag by pressing the trigger a little and then pressing it completely at the moment of clicking the picture.

After the click is complete, don’t move the camera away from eye quickly. Hold it for a moment.

What if the image still is blurry even after taking all precautions? Well, then you need to click the picture again, no alternative for that 

#3 Improper Lighting

Many photographers believe that photography is all about light. Appropriate lighting can make or break a photo.

The first and foremost thing you need to watch is ISO settings in your digital camera. You need to make it higher or lower based on the other lighting conditions. Balance the lighting with these settings. Remember, higher the ISO, greater the lighting in the picture frame.

While shooting indoors, try and avoid flash as much as possible and try and use natural light. Don’t place the subjects in front of bright window (unless you want silhouette effect). If natural light is not available, use lamps in the room.

Try and choose a good background for your picture which can add some brightness to the photo.

While shooting outdoors, if possible, shoot early or later in the day. This will give the soothing effect in your photos. Try and get sunlight on the subject by having the sun behind you when you shoot.

What if the photos show blacks shade or are too bright despite taking all the precautions? Well, there are a lot of available photo editing tools which can help you clean that up. But really, why not master the art of perfect photography? 

In coming posts, we will share more such tips, tricks and articles about photography. If you have any specific points to share, do share those as comments!

Photography Workshop with Vincent Versace – Few Tips

Are you the kind of photographer who carries a big back pack filled with several cameras, lenses and other photography gears? Are you also worried more about the scratch on of any of your precious photography armors rather than worrying about that delicate little souvenir carried back home?

Vincent Versace, the Nikon Ambassador for US shares a few handy tips in his one day photography workshop at Mumbai with Tumbhi!

1. Shower Caps

They act like the perfect raincoat for most of your cameras and lenses. With their elastic wide enough to hold any size of head, they prevent your cameras thereby also protecting them from any water drop or scratches!

So the next time you are visiting a hotel room, don’t forget to throw in a few complimentary shower caps!

 

2. Lens cleanser

‘Hoodman ‘an enzyme based lens cleanser is what Vincent prescribes. You do realize keeping the lens clean is as necessary as wiping off your eye glasses clean- to give a clearer view and thus a better photograph. Like wet wipes this cleanser is easy to carry and use. Available at Amazon this will sure give you a clearer lens if not a photograph!

3. Torch

A torch is to not only show you your ways through uneven plateaus of that deadly forest for wildlife photography , but also when you need that “little extra sunlight” on the object of your photograph. A 4 spectrum light bulb (battery operated) is what Vincent prescribes.

4: Wrist Strap

A wrist strap, mostly that one used by sports persons is to keep your hand anti-shake while you click that amazing rare moment. It stiffens the wrist and ensures that you don’t get disappointed with a great yet blur picture.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Shade Card

A simple shade card will enable you to have the idea of that perfect shade of ‘grey’ while clicking Black & White photographs. A simple yet very effective technique to determine the desired shade of color in your finished photograph while clicking itself.

6. CamRanger

A CamRanger wirelessly tethers your Nikon or Canon DSLR with your iPad or iPhone. So basically you keep your camera at the set angle and click with your iphone or ipad in hand without pressing the button of your camera. Its best when you need to click secretly without scaring away the subject of your photograph. See more about CamRanger here http://www.camranger.com/

7. Battery Chargers

And last but the most essential, the batter chargers! Generally photographers carry lot of batteries but one or two chargers! That’s a big NO! Carry enough battery chargers in proportion to the batteries you are carrying! You can’t let go of a rare moment just because of a stupid battery you see.

Hope a few of these tips will come in as handy to you as they were meant to be.

Overview:

Vincent Versace is an internationally recognized pioneer in the art and science of digital photography. His passion for natural light photography is manifest not only in his work but also through his role as a creative and technical leader, contributing to innovative breakthroughs across the entire digital image value chain.

Vincent has recently conducted a series of Photography Workshops in India in association with Tumbhi! A three day workshop in Banaras (Sept 20-22) and one day workshop at Mumbai (Sept 26) along with a photography tour in Meerzapur (U.P.).

Expressions- Tumbhi’s Digital Photography Workshop

In row to the last photography workshop organized by Tumbhi, this time it was bigger and better- out there in the green mushy fields of Mahabaleshwar and Panchgani – with big cameras packed in bags and enthusiasm trolling high in the spirits!

“Expressions”- Tumbhi’s first outdoor Digital Photography Workshop was a close call for 15 amateur but enthusiastic photographers. A two-day trip planned for learning basics of Digital photography along with tremendous outdoor adventure.

Under the veteran gaze of Mr. LC Singh (an established Nature and Wildlife photographer cum trainer and Founder of Tumbhi.com), 15 cameras captured the valleys in different frames, in different fashions and reflections.

The workshop started with an overview and detailed explanation of minute but extremely important basics like Holding the camera- thereby explaining perspective, vertical holding, positioning and Breathing out.

Moving onto the more creative aspect of making a photograph, the concept of Composition was explained with a few principles like Rule of one third, presence of human element in the picture, clutter and contrast management just before you press the click button!

 

Classroom Sessions

In the classroom sessions, which were held mostly during the wee hours of enormous sunlight when photos couldn’t be clicked, participants were given elaborate lessons on using Lightroom! For this Tumbhi team already made sure that each participant had light room downloaded in their machines.

On-field Photography

Sharp pictures and Focusing were explained with hands on click and learn mechanism where the participants clicked pictures and got instant feedback thereby getting an exact idea of where they missed the perfection and how could they have made it better!

But a photograph is not just made when clicked-it has to be polished to be able to tell your story! Mr. LC Singh went on explaining the utter importance of processing an image and in the right manner – so as to make it convey the emotion hidden in it!

 

A post processed photograph

And amidst all the learning and clicking, which could not be explained here, was the amazing experience and fun the participants had while being out there- making it bigger and better!

Also listing down a few testimonials from the participants of the workshop!!

Ashutosh- “It gave me a chance to take a closer look at my camera settings and learnt how best I can use them for a more satisfying experience of photography. I must admit, I knew very less about my camera before the workshop Post processing lessons were a delight.”

Bhushan- “This workshop was not just an avenue to learn about photography, but also one where I was able to connect with other like-minded individuals to collectively enhance skills.”

 

Artist’s Motivation; Miles to go before I sleep

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”

These golden lines from Robert Frost bring back the wondered thought- what keeps an artist going?

It sure must be something really burning which keeps the urge inside an artist alive. To keep his pen rolling, his paints flowing, his camera clicking, his legs tapping and his heart jumping, all the way.

Indecisive of what the reasons would be, I just thought of putting down a few points which keep me, as an artist, going …

  1. Take it out on a paper
    It’s when I have a lot of things to surrender to, lot of things to face to, in daily life, at home, at work, in relationships or I am just grumbled of the general behavior of a common human tendency and I desperately need to take it out somewhere, writing or painting become the best medium. I just write it down or paint it out and the relieve exchanged is worth that effort!
  2. The mighty incentives
    Two words of a serious thought on my creative work brings in voluptuous changes. With the prowess of the web today, exposing talent is easy, quick and vast! Even the comments that I receive on a four line poetry of mine, is capable enough to take me 10 miles further.
  3. The critical “high”
    Believe it or not, one thoughtful remark coming from n expert in the industry can teach an artist lesson for his entire life. We don’t actually realize its importance since these experts are not really in our reach. Even one thoughtful remark from a friend can boost an artist so much. If even once, by any chance, one becomes lucky enough to recite his poem to a well famed poet or show his photograph to the most eminent photographer in the industry, it takes you another one million miles in a flash.
  4. The urge of getting better
    It is said “Practice makes man perfect”. Similarly, any art comes through two channels- Inborn talent and sheer experience. Artists tend to learn through hit and trial method. It’s their own work which motivates them to improve further! When I compare my two years old poetry with the present one, the difference is crystal clear. The journey of evolution in me and my writing comes alive in those papers. It’s that promise to myself to keep getting better just gives me a push every time!

As an artist, I keep doing my art for myself but somewhere I realize that what I did, isn’t enough and that I have to keep going , because, there are miles to go before I sleep…!!
