I'd like your thoughts and opinions to an idea I had regarding printing and framing my "Road to Julian" photograph. I wanted to see if I could eliminate more of the brown foliage in the foreground and not wind up with just a long, skinny image.

My idea is to divide the image into three 8x10 photos and mount as a triptych. At 8x10, I can eliminate more of the foreground. The matte would have an inch border around each third of the images with a total matted size of 28x12. I've enclosed an example of how it would look and below that, the original.

Good idea - I assume you are going to dry mount them on the exterior of your mat board (as shown above). An alternative is cutting 3 windows with beveled edge and mounting them behind.....gives them a bit of depth like viewing through a real window.

Thanks Spike. I thought about the individual images being mounted behind the matte as well. The first image I just added a drop shadow to seperate the shots from the 'matte'.

I think it will look quite nice. Will this be in a single frame?
I think this would look nice with each third on canvas w stretcher frame. Or even mounted on styrene or masonite, without frame, for that matter would look nice.

Thanks. The original thought was to single frame it something like this. I probably wouldn't use a black frame though. The more I look at it, the more I like just the white matte surrounding the three images.

If you are going for a "through the window" look, make the dividing strip between the pictures narrower than the exterior border. Nice trio.
