New Products: Part Three ~ {Pensacola, Florida Pet Photographer Allison Shamrell}

All right, here is another product! It’s for those of you who refuse to give up the wonderful story-telling aspect of books, but just can’t stand having blank walls. This is called a storyboard. It’s similar to a canvas gallery wrap, in that it can be hung up without a traditional frame, but it’s definitely not made out of canvas! The back mounting is a type of styrene, a hard but light material that’s 3/4″ thick. The front features the images, of course- and on this material (unlike all my other products) I get to design with more than one photo! So storyboards allow us to tell a story on an awesome surface, all while having the modern feel of sticking out from the wall framelessly. Again, pictures say it better than I can:

I included the glare from my lights so that you can see the surface isn’t canvas-like at all. It’s matte; like a photograph without the high gloss coating. The entire surface is on one plane, no dips or ridges, even though the lower images look framed. This is a “digital mat” effect. Pretty cool, right? Here’s a close-up of that effect:

The sides of the storyboard are the same color as the overall background, plain white. The sides have a bit of texture to them, and here are a couple of photos so you can see it better. I think it’s clearer in the darker photo, since the shadows bring it out more, but you should be able to get a pretty good idea from both pictures.

And here’s a shot of the corner.

It’s a modern, new product that you can’t find in too many places. But I love making them for my clients!! They work well with one dog and with multiple dogs, because they can show multiple aspects of one personality, or how different dogs interact with one another. In this one, for example, I included a photo of each of the Goldens that I felt really showed their personality (I think their owners can back me up on that!) and one of them together, because they really are the lights of their parents’ lives. Anyways, it’s another way for me to get creative without crouching behind a camera, and I have a lot of fun designing these unique products! So if you’re dying to hang up a big piece of artwork on the wall (this one is 20×30 inches) but simply can’t choose one favorite from your session, here is your solution!

Next time: a new type of book that’s the young, rebellious nephew of the coffee table album. Just wait until you see it…

Thanks for reading!
