If you have a great deal of old and new photos lying around, you may be looking for a better way for you and your friends and family to enjoy them. Most photos spend the majority of their time locked away in photo albums or in a box somewhere in your home. Many people do not have a way to share their photos with everyone else and wonder why they even keep them at all. If this sound like a situation that is all too familiar to you, you may want to consider a photo montage.
A photo montage is a group of photos of various subjects that can be hung on a wall in any room in the house. You can do this by using photos of different sizes and shapes and hanging them all together on a wall as sort of a collage. A great look is to use several different kinds of photo frames. The more kinds of frames that you use the more artistic the effect will be of your photo montage. Try making a family montage using pictures of the people in your household. See what you can come up with and decide where it will look best in your home.
Start by going through your family's photos. You will need to make decisions as to if this is going to be a photo montage of just the immediate family within the household, or if you would like to include everyone from grandparents to aunts and uncles. Once you know which direction you are going to go, the next step is to pick out the best photos for your photo montage. The best photos for this kind of thing is basically anything. Just be sure that the subject of the photos that you choose are clearly defined in each photo. If you do not do this it may make the montage appear to be cluttered and out of focus. The best photos will be the ones that directly focus on the person in the picture. this person, or people, should take up the majority of the photo. Anyone who walks into your home should be able to easily see that this is a photo montage of your family. If the subject matter is not clear, they may not be able to tell for sure what the montage is all about. This is not what you want in a montage.

That would be a very nice way to keep the memories alive in the home. Or how about a photo montage in your child's room of all of their friends? This is a great way to keep their photos too. Photo montages are a wonderful thing that anyone can do with their photos.
