Stephanie and I really enjoy seeing some of our favorite pics on canvas. Seems like a classier way to showcase large prints, without breaking the bank. We have a few canvases in the house of our favorite wild subjects. Usually black and white, but we have been wanting a few color ones too.
So perfect timing, Easy Canvas Prints asked us to demo their work at an 8×10″ size. We found a good photo and sent it off. We used a family photo from the botanical gardens last fall that our friend Tara at third book photography (now in portland) took for us. We chose color on a 3/4″ frame, with a black edge wrap.
Turned out great.
We love the print, and the photo, colors and texture were great. I will note that when using a group shot, the canvas texture may show on close inspection to create odd skin details. Mainly because the canvas texture is so heavy, that on a 1″ face will show a lot of texture for small facial features. This is pretty much the same on every canvas we have seen, So more of a general photo to canvas note. Step back 4 feet and its fine.
* Disclaimer. We did receive a free print from Easy Canvas Prints with the intention of a review. We Did not let this skew our opinion of the product, and we would indeed buy from them again.
After a friend posted pictures her kids took, I immediately asked her which camera they had. She told me about this camera and how durable it was. I began watching ebay for a good deal since I wanted to buy two. I finally found two from one seller and got my deal. They arrived yesterday and the boys have been snapping away. Matt and I love looking at their pictures even though they are graining and a ton of them are all black. Ezra is really getting it down and was doing good aiming it this morning. Noah just loves pushing buttons. I just hope he stops putting the flash against his eye and pushing the button.
Here are a few of our favorite pics so far.
Just some photos I took last weekend at Cindy’s bday party. Abby at 12 weeks. She is getting so big and growing so fast already!
(why do I feel i washed these out after editing? they looked so vibrant before I uploaded. Maybe I need to re-upload)
Today after we got home from running errands, i went to the car show to take some cool pictures.
Here are just a few of the awesome ones.
