How to Mount Your Pictures

Member Articles

You have several options to choose from depending on which tools you have and how handy you are.

The most commonly available, recommended adhesive is 3M Photo Mount. It is a spray and sells for about $13.00 for a large can. One can should do quite a few prints. Other permanent adhesive that you might consider are 3M General Purpose 45, it is advertised as "Photo Safe" and cost about $5 at Home Depot. Also 3M Super 77 is slightly less expensive than Photo Mount, and the procedure for using it is the same. It is not advertised to be archival. I know several people who are using this and have been happy with it.

Being on a fixed income and hearing about the prices of picture frames I decided that I would save lots of money "building my own!?"

I'll bet you've never heard that before. The first thing I learned is that starting any new project with a glass of wine isn't necessary, but it helps.

My Trip to Thailand

Member Articles

Thailand is known as the “Land of Smiles”, and rightly so. The Thai people strive to have some fun with everything they do. Most of them lead a simple life. They just don’t worry about little things.

For my purposes, I also consider this country to be a “Photographer’s Paradise”.

Stokely's Tips for Better Pictures (Sept)

One of the most talked about subjects in photography is sharpness. Most photographers spend a lot of time concerning themselves with image sharpness. When choosing equipment, this is probably the area of greatest concern. They purchase more expensive lenses. They buy the latest, sharpest film. Then they go out and shoot their cameras handheld.

Photographers will generally find any excuse to leave the tripod at home. It's too heavy, too bulky, or any other reason you can think of.

Few places in the United States offer more stunning photography possibilities than New England.

For the last 5 years I have been going to Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont to capture the brilliant reds, fiery oranges, and glowing yellows that paint the trees from late September thru October.

Digital Imaging.

Those words can create inspiration or fear. Or even both!

This latest "catch phrase" seems to be all that photographers want to talk about. But is it a replacement for film? Absolutely not. The truth is, digital imaging is an alternative to traditional imaging, not a total replacement for film.
