06-MAR-2010 photo by Johnboy2978


I was asked by the creator of this photo to demonstrate how the photo would look with a larger area outside of the white hairline, and with a larger amount of black at the bottom on the photo, using roughly a 1:1:1: unit spacing of black on the left,top,and right edges,and an approximately 1.5 unit border at the bottom of the photo.

The thread this request was made in is here

Here is quick update to the original. All I did was expand the canvas size, allowing a larger border on the left,top,and right hand sides of the photograph, with each side being roughly "one unit". The bottom edge was given roughly "one and a half" units of black border area, and I pulled your signature downward a bit, and inward just a little bit. it has always been my experience that that professionally matted and framed art done by the most skilled, trained professionals uses a strategy of having a larger or deeper border on the bottom edge of the frame and matte, as a sort of visual "anchor".

other sizes: small medium large original auto
