Hey Peeps...
I'd like to do this style of hanging for some mounted prints. Any idea where I can find the supplies?
QUOTED IMAGE

Showing cleat & small spacer at bottom to keep it away from wall:

Sits away from wall:

Cleat without pic on it:

Probably any hardware store. Looks like the cleat is just a 2x1 cut and stained and then screwed on to the wall. You could also get like a 4x1 and use a circular saw set to cut at an angle and cut the board along the center, giving you the "top" and the "bottom" of the cleat. After you make the angle cut, cut the board into smaller sections to mount to the back of the photo and the wall. If you cut the photo strips into smaller blocks you can make the mounts for the back of a lot more photos and reuse the cleats.

Then you just need to cut small blocks to attach to the bottom of the photos so they stand off properly.

Here is what I would say for the cleat cuts... Top and side view, smaller blocks for mounting on the pics, larger for the wall. (You can adjust the exact size as needed, just a rough guideline..)

Ok. Thanks. The material is a foam of some sort. So I wasn't sure if this was a standard photo hanging technique that I was unaware of. The house we stayed in over Christmas had oodles of pics hung this way and the owner isn't a diy kind of guy.

Thanks. I should be able to get my hubby to do that for me. I wonder how foam could be cut cleanly without shredding it. Makes a very light weight hanging option since the pics are on lightweight material, too.

If I can figure it out, I may offer it as a service. Lol

Rigid foam should cut fairly easily with a hand or hack saw. Something with smaller teeth should do better.

Do you think the angle cut would get all wonky if doing by hand?

If you cut the smaller blocks first you could use a miter box, such as this:

http://t.homedepot.com …ith-Saw-20-600D/100034395 (external link)

The first slot on the left could be used to cut blocks about 6" wide at a consistent angle.

A lightweight circular trim saw might be able to also maintain the cut on rigid foam down the length...

Thanks so much! I think we can get that figured out with those tips. :)

Well, I think I've just decided to hold off on a new/used lens for now and instead focus on accessories and lighting setups. Could easily end up costing more than a lens. Then I'll just keep an eye open on the local used market and see if I can barter or rummage/thriftshop buy a lens (not that decent lenses show up all too often like that).

For starters I'm looking at some sort of radio triggers for the two older flash units I currently have, and maybe a remote trigger for the camera itself. Then I'll add some light stands, umbrellas (or reflectors or light boxes, or all eventually), and some other assorted stuff. That should get me plenty of stuff to play around with a learn more about controlling/utilizing various lighting.

I'm also wondering how well it would work to pick up a cheap video camera package at a thrift shop just for the lighting package that sometimes is included with them. I've seen VHS cameras and gear in a carry bag for under $10 which often includes lighting. Anyway, something else to play around with and see if I can monkey-rig up something functional.
