Use Your Photography!

Favorite Things, From the Heart, Projects

I love magazines! If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know I have a habit of pulling a ton of magazines apart for so many wonderful ideas. I pull out design ideas, inspiration ideas, travel ideas, and even ideas for cooking. I’m obsessed with a good magazine. Target has a fabulous selection, but the very best place to get magazines is at a large book store. I could spend hundreds at a Barns and Noble on magazines alone.

This week Emma and I went to Michael’s for a couple of wooden letters and spray paint for my cousin’s engagement shoot.

See? They turned out really cute._MG_6374

 

Anyway, as we were waiting in line a couple of new magazines caught my eye. Shocker, I know. I haven’t actually seen this one before but it’s called Refresh. It’s published by Better Homes and Gardens. PS I love that company, and I can’t even tell you how much inspiration I get from their publications and TV shows. Seriously. Anyway, I hadn’t seen the magazine before so I had to buy it.

I found so many ideas that I’d like to hold on to so needless to say, I  pulled the whole magazine apart and filed the pages in different categories.

Being a photographer, I’m always on the look out for things one can do with photography. There is nothing worse than paying money for a wonderful photoshoot and then just having a flash drive of the images that sit on your table for the next 5 years. Sorry folks, but making one your Facebook profile pic is just not enough.

For all of us that want ideas of what we can do with our images, here you go! You can use any images from Instagram to a professional shoot, these are wonderful ideas of how we can use those images.

Here is the article from Refresh Magazine. I love tiny pictures.

I recently shot an ocean image with the hopes of printing  it for my middle daughter as a gift. Shhhh..

More small image ideas. I love the thought of hanging small photos on wire or a clothes line or metal hooks. So rustic, yet classy.

I think all these ideas are amazing, and just imagine all you could do with your own photography! I’m in!
