Canvas Prints – another finishing option

I love canvas prints, but what I am not a huge fan of is the gallery wrap look.  There are a lot of reasons for this but it is mainly the cost to produce the print and the no frame look.  Sure they look great when first produced but after being on the wall for a while they start to look like something is missing (just my opinion) without the frame.  So for years I have recommended that instead of the wrap that people mount to foam board then frame the print.  To me this is the  best way to display a canvas and as far as cost it can be less then the wrap.

Exposure Chart

I have been wanting to do this exposure chart for a long time and with it being a snow day it was a good day to work on it. It is not designed to be a 100% complete with data or is it to explain everything but it is a good cheat sheet to help when shooting.

You can print a copy of it for PERSONAL use only as long as you do not remove or alter any information.
