Two good reasons for framing a photograph are Ease of Viewing and Protection.
First, select a photograph that is worthy of viewing. For example, an interesting landscape or landmark might be good choice for a public area of your home or business. More personal photographs such as children or a family vacation might be better in a den or bedroom to re-live intimate memories.
The frame you select can facilitate Ease of Viewing by drawing in an observer’s attention. Also, the frame should compliment the room setting or architecture. Understand your light source to avoid any reflections off the frame. A custom framing shop can help you pick the proper selection by trying out various samples.
Protection is important so the photograph doesn’t fade over time. Non—glare glass can help. Don’t have the photograph press against the glass because the two might fuse eventually. Use spacers to keep a small distance between the picture and the glass. Also, having the photograph glued on a Mat with a proper adhesive should keep it from wrinkling in the future.
