I’ve had the opportunity this last 2 years to be in and around several studios and galleries both in Cleveland and Denver. I have seen beautiful painting and fine arts photography prints in a wide variety of settings. The gallery environment is fairly forgiving when it comes to displaying— well art.

This is where the Living Environment factor comes enters the picture.  In design school we were taught to use design briefs that defined what type of environment the ad design would live in or on: billboards, vehicles, small printed handouts, etc.  This habit of thinking of contemplating living environment has spilled into my photography work as well.

Consideration must be given when planning a shoot regarding the size of the deliverable, location (office foyer, retail, etc), lighting conditions, surrounding elements, and the list goes on.  I know that I am not getting in the habit of going through a checklist before I shoot of creating a vision of where this nature print will live and ask “ what orientation or aspect ratio would make this print look fantastic on a long wall in a great room ? - per se.

Lastly, the study of color harmonies in your imagery as to how they play well with your intended living environment is another important skill to obtain so we can create that ‘Wow” impact.

Your Turn!

• Challenge yourself to envision a gorgeous print mounted and lit when you're in the field shooting and studying
   various compositional options.

• Study up on color theory and color harmonies to strengthen your knowledge of how colors relate to each
   other and the world around us.
