Going Beyond the Fireplace Portrait

Monday, September 12, 2011

I think sometimes people can get stuck in a rut when it comes to photography. You know what I mean - wanting one portrait of the family (all smiling!) above the fireplace mantel. Probably one of the most requested items on a photographers list,no?
The other day I was watching Home by Novogratz, a show I am slightly obsessed with enjoy watching, when I noticed how they really take the idea of art and turn it on its head... and in many cases, that art is photography. See what I mean:

{using photography as wallpaper in child's bedroom}

{collage of candid photos in the dining room}

{wall of head shots in the living area}

{huge canvas panels in a high school rec room}

No 8x10 prints here, my friends. Big, bold interiors where the focus is the photography.
**Oh, and don't forget... there's only 2 days left to enter our giveaway!
