Part of the process and service we provide is the First Viewing. Our clients come in to the studio for the first viewing of their portrait. We collaborate in HD on the photos and their presentation until they are perfect. Our client Mrs N pulled a Macbook Air out of her purse and showed a snapshot she had done at her house where she wanted to hang a canvas. It was on the second floor landing, looking towards the stairs that go down. That wall next to the stairs was where she envisioned a family portrait. Mrs N had measured the width of the wall and it was 60 inches. Someone looking at the wall could be anywhere between 3 and 15 feet from it.
What size canvas would look best on that wall? The first answer to that question is “any size that looks good to you”. Everyone has tastes and preferences when it comes to art, and those ideas come first, we create portraits that fit your style. We have any canvas size up to 40″ x 60″. The final canvas size chosen for an image depends on that photograph and where it will be viewed. Whether it is color, BW, square, panorama, all these are taken in to account. We decided a 30×40 Galerie Canvas would work best for her. It was not so big it would dominate the room and leave only a couple of inches on either side for the wall. Neither was it so small that the blank wall space made it look even smaller. It was just the right size.
