Frame Mockup

Posted on June 10, 2015

I’m going to show you how simple it is to create a custom Frame Mockup for yourself, to display your works on your website or to your clients.

What’s that saying? “Necessity is the mother of invention” or something like that. That is more than accurate. I wanted to create a custom frame mockup for my online store, to display the prints I have available for sale. I searched the web for one, but the ones I found didn’t fulfill my needs and it lacked personality. So I decided to get busy and create my own frame mockup.

This project took me about 2 hours. From driving to the location I had in mind, to shoot the frames and edit the photos.
I grabbed some IKEA frames I had hanging around my apartment, loaded them in the car and I hit the road.

I was shooting in tethered, with the camera on a tripod and my mac on the trunk of my car, so I could review the photos instantly on Lightroom. Shot in a couple different configurations, so I could have as much variations as possible for future proof.

This is one of the photos I chose, with no edit, straight from the camera.

I hope this was in some way helpful for some of you, this is not an in-dept tutorial, it’s just my process on how I did it. Hopefully this will inspire you to get busy.

The original prints on the frames belong to the following artists, from left to right:
Matthew Skiff / Me / Ron English

You can buy my prints here: AYSE Studio Store.
