Framing photographs to tell a story

Framing photographs to tell a story

You know what they say, a picture tells a thousand words, but if you really want to tell a story then you need to use the right framing techniques. To help you, here are some handy tips from the custom framing experts at Innovate Interiors.

Sequential arrangement

A sequential arrangement is when you display a row of photos horizontally to tell a story, usually spanning a number of years. This is a great idea if you want to show your family growing up or the same landscape across different seasons. It’s also a great way to display a whole bunch of photos taken on burst mode or in a photo booth. This look can be achieved with multiple frames hanging side by side, or with a long horizontal multi- picture photo frame.

Collage arrangement

This is a very popular arrangement for framed photographs and occurs when a collection of photographs are placed in a staggered collage clustered on a section of wall. To help your collage tell a story, ensure that all the featured photographs reflect the same event (e.g. wedding, overseas holiday) or the same group of people (e.g. group of friend or your family).

You can choose the same colour of frame for a more cohesive look, or opt for a wide variety of mismatching frames to create something a little more eclectic. You can even purchase specialised collage frames that houses multiple pictures, but hang as one frame.

Memorabilia arrangement

Photographs can also be used to enhance the story told by certain heirlooms or mementos. Many custom memorabilia framing services include photos in displays to increase their impact. For example, photo of your great grandfather in his WWII uniform surrounded by his medals or a photo of you and your spouse at your wedding with some pressed flowers from the bridal bouquet.
