What’s in a Frame?

One of the weird things about life today is that we’re surrounded by photos yet few of us actually seem to have any! Wherever you go you see people taking photos or posing for photos: but where do they all end up?

Social media is flooded with photos. It is estimated that 95 million photos and videos are shared on Instagram per day. Our phones are also full of photos, and that is the way that most of us now show photos to our friends.

But are we missing something?

Many people now use kindles and other electronic reading devices to read. But many others prefer to stick with printed books; preferring the look, the feel and the smell. Similarly many of us download music or use a music streaming service such as Spotify: but there are others who much prefer CDs or vinyl – which is becoming increasingly popular. Again, the rationale for this is to have something physical to hold and to look at: some solid evidence of the music you enjoy.

It is much the same with photographs. In our article earlier this year The Return of the Photograph, we looked at the increase in popularity of instant cameras, where you can see your photograph straight away – just as you can on your phone: but unlike your phone you also have a physical photograph to have and to hold.

How much better to have wonderful photographs displayed in your home rather than just depend on a screen to hold your precious memories! That is why at Venture Studios we supply a stunning range of frames that will showcase your photographs to perfection, and make them an integral feature of your home. You will be able to look at your family portraits and other favourite photographs again and again.
