Taking Back Tipsters: Photo Frames

Photos get sad when they're all alone in your computer and in the deep dark depths of cyberspace. They need to be printed and framed to fully come alive! Here's a couple of awesome frame ideas to get you going!

Photos look their best when they’re printed. You get to see the whole scene in a whole new light and get to appreciate the image more. However, a good frame is also integral to the experience of enjoying a photo. You can stick with classics such as a gilt one or a minimalist flat black. If you want to go the DIY route though, we’ve got that covered in this week’s Taking Back Tipsters!

    You can get frames from http://www.dickblick(…)wood-frame/
    And you can get broken medium format and some 35mm SLR cameras from eBay for pretty cheap. I got all of my supplies for about $150 but I chose some better cameras from eBay http://www.ebay.com/(…)html?_sop=1
