I had a discussion recently about size of images. I tend to go for larger than average prints of my work. Either 11x14, or 16x20. I had a client ask me to print one of my photographs in a 3 foot square, or 4 foot square size. ( If I could get 50" paper, he wanted 4 foot square. )
OTOH, I have seen lovely prints that are very small in peoples homes. They are very sharp and have a certain allure. You tend to stop and peer at them to get all of the details in a way - at least to me - that you wouldn’t if walking by a 16x20 print.
So, here’s the query. I am putting this here because it’s a Cafe Society topic but it is a poll of sorts with qualifiers and if the Mods feel it belongs in IMHO, please move it.
Take a look at This image. Which would you hang, a small 6 inch square or a 3 foot square? The image is native in a square format, hence the sizes.
Why? Are there some you’d go for in a huge way but other kinds of shots that require a more sublte presentation?
Yes, I am the photographer. This is the image the client wanted in a 3 or 4 foot square print.
