A very thorough video tutorial showing you how to cut using a ‘v-groove’ technique. Different colors of mount board are discussed along with their placement together to get the optimum contrast. This video is a real insight into professional level of framing and is a good indicator of what is undertaken at a professional framing outlet.
There are so many opportunities to exhibit your own artwork on line and it is vitally important that you present your work in the best way possible. I have seen numerous poorly photographed paintings on the web and these pieces generate much less interest than work which has been photographed correctly. This video, produced by Sachi, clearly describes some of the key points to note when photographing your artwork.
You are given advice on how to position your work, how to adjust the lighting to suit and how to use the camera to best effect. The video explans many of the issues that commonly occur whilst photographing your work and demonstrates how incorrect settings on your camera or with the lighting can adversely affect the quality of your image. The presenter then goes on to provide a short introduction to the image adjusting tools generally availble on your PC and shows how to crop and adjust your image to provide the perfect upload. This is a very clear professionally produced video and well worth the time taken to view.
Have you ever wanted to know how to construct and build your own large canvas frame. Well this video shows you in a series of still clips the step by step process involved with doing just that.
