  • How to Use Autumn in Your Photography

    A change in season means a change in colours, landscapes and scenery. This change allows you to capture some beautiful images that will make the perfect canvas print. The autumn palette is warm and striking, especially when used effectively in photography. So, grab a pumpkin spiced latte, sit back and read our advice on how to capture the perfect autumn photo.

    Timing

    To truly capture the vibrant colours of autumn, head out just before sunset or after sunrise. This is when the lighting is at its warmest and will look it’s best through the lens. You also need to be quick as leaves can fall overnight and strip trees bare. Monitor the progress of the leaves as they change colour to ensure they look the best they can when you are shooting.

    Nature

    As the trees lose their leaves, they begin to create beautiful shadows amongst the forest floor as the lighting from the sun seeps through the different heights of the canopies. You will find lots of interesting patterns and compositions from flourishing leaves and trees so remember to explore this with your camera.

    Weather

    With autumn, comes colder weather. Fog soon starts to encompass our surroundings and creates a dramatic effect on any photo. Focus on a leaf or other object at the front of the lens and the fog behind will form a blurred background and create a very professional looking photograph. Fog doesn’t have to be dull, with the right amount of soft light seeping through you will have a perfect photo for canvas art in your home.

    Wildlife

    Animals spend much of their time in autumn, preparing for winter. This makes this season the perfect time to take photos of animals as not only will you get a natural portrait, you will capture their relationship with the environment. If you don’t live in an area bursting with nature, venture to a local park or nature reserve that is the host to plenty of wildlife.

    Explore

    Autumn photography doesn’t just have to be scenery and wildlife, capture the memories that the colder months creates too. Wrap up in scarves and hats and let the children go exploring for conkers or have fun in the bundles of leaves. Natural photography of the family enjoying their time outside can make for beautiful photos that you will be proud to display in your home.

    Follow our advice and you will soon have a gorgeous gallery of warming photographs. When you’ve chosen your favourite, don’t forget to have it printed onto one of our canvases that you can give as a gift or keep for a beautiful piece of wall art.

  • The 4 Biggest Bedroom Trends for Kids

    As children grow and develop, so do their imaginations. Decorating a child’s bedroom allows these imaginations to run wild as a whole world of possibilities are opened up. Whether it be a bedroom, a nursery or a playroom, there are no limitations to how creative you can be when transforming a room and so, we’ve had a look at our favourite trends at the moment for children’s interior.

    1. Tepee’s

    A huge trend at the moment is teepees for children. They can be home made with a bed sheet and pole or store bought but however you have them; we love them. They provide a small, cosy place for children to spend time playing. We love the original Indian themed teepee and we have a canvas to match too, so the theme can be incorporated across the whole bedroom! For parent’s wanting to go a step further, why not create a teepee over the bed and transform the room into a fairy tale room?

    2. Fairy tale themed rooms

    For budding little Princesses, dreams are becoming reality with the big trend of having a fairy-tale bedroom. As mentioned above, rooms can be transformed in an instant with the addition of fabric over the bed frame to create a bed that’s fit for a real-life princess. Add some fairy lights and either of our ‘Welcome Her Royal Cuteness’ or ‘Our Little Princess’ canvases to make your little girl live her magical fantasy.

    3. Animal Wall Mounts

    Although it may seem strange to mount cuddly toys on the wall, this trend is taking over children’s bedrooms. The mounts range from cute farm animals to unicorns and make a great addition to any bedroom. Not only that, but they create a focus piece for a feature wall alongside other matching wall art pieces. Unicorns are a massive craze at the moment and wall mounts of the magical animal are selling out; teamed with our unicorn canvases they make the perfect pink collection on any wall.

    4. Cowboys

    Alternatively, cowboys are fast becoming boy’s best friend and parents are beginning to add a western theme to their boy’s bedrooms. We have the perfect ‘Wanted’ style canvas for this, which can even be personalised for your very own little cowboy. Add this to the wall with a horse head wall mount as mentioned above for the perfect themed bedroom.

    No matter how you choose to decorate your child’s bedroom, make sure it showcases their personality and is as creative as can be. Through our bespoke personalised prints, you can achieve just that. Get in touch with us today.

  • And Their Photos Lived Happily Ever After...

    Summer wedding season is drawing to a close for the year, yet it’s becoming more common for married couples to have an array of stunning shots from their wedding day, but do nothing with them. Wedding photos are much anticipated by both wedding party and guests alike, so, we’ve had a look at four reasons why you should have your photos printed.

    Your photos tell a story. From the first second, to the last, your wedding day is captured. When combined, the photos taken can tell the story from the bride getting ready, all the way through to the reception. Having these photos displayed in an album is much more interesting and fun to flip through than having to swipe across on a screen. It also means future grandchildren can re-live your special day with you.

    You need to keep them safe. We know that data storage mediums quickly go out of fashion, making them impossible to retrieve data in the future. There’s no guaranteeing that the USB drive or CD your wedding album is currently stored on will still be accessible in 10 years’ time. Having them stored on a laptop is also not the best solution, photos can very easily be deleted or lost. Having your photos printed protects you from the loss of these precious memories.

    You‘ve spent a lot. With beautiful dresses and décor comes perfect photo opportunities so it’s likely that you have spent a lot of money on your photographer yet done nothing with those precious photos. Sadly, some couples pay hundreds for wedding photography, only for the final images to be set as their phone background and live amongst their phones forevermore.

    They are art. There is no denying that your wedding shots are some of the most beautiful photos you will own. Having them printed onto canvas can provide your home with a unique piece of art that brings your home together and creates a warm nostalgia for that happy moment. It doesn’t have to just be a single shot, it could be a print with the lyrics to your first song on, or a collage  of all your favourite moments of your special day.

    However you choose to document your wedding photography, we want to make sure it is special and truly captures the happiness shared on your wedding day. Here at Posh Canvas we have over 70 different wedding canvases available to personalise in order to perfectly display your wedding day. Capture your memories here.

  • Celebrating World Photo Day

    In an era where millions of pictures are uploaded daily and everybody is a click away from capturing an image; World Photo Day revisits the roots of photography so you can share your world, with the world.

    Whether you’re amateur, professional or anything in between, everybody is encouraged to celebrate the beauty of photography. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the top-notch equipment or photography skills, capturing images helps people see through your own eyes - or camera lens!

    Check out our top tips below on how to celebrate World Photo Day:

    Capture more

    With the marking of this celebration day, encourage yourself to take more photographs. An easy way of doing this is a 365 project; take one photo every day and by the end of the year you’ll have 365 daily additions to a gallery of your life and a complete variety of pictures to choose from.

    Combine your best photographs

    Creating a collage provides endless ways of documenting your favourite photos. Collages are a perfect way to get creative when documenting your photography. Having a black and white effect will provide a sophisticated twist on your photos, whilst having both landscape and portrait pictures together will bring flair.

    Edit previous pictures

    You don’t have to take new photos continuously to showcase your skills; editing can transform any previous photograph of yours into something completely new. Enhancing saturation, adding a filter or exaggerating the shadows – however you choose to edit, you’ll be surprised at how an old photo can become one of your best.

    Print and share your photos

    A great way of sharing your photos with others this World Photo Day is to have them printed and to gift them. Not only does it provide the recipient with a stunning piece of art for the walls of their home, but it also showcases your photography talent and really brings your photo to life.
