What is a Standout Wall Portrait?

Another photographer shared a photograph on Flickr of the first standout portrait she ordered which reminded me that I have never posted photos of the Standouts I’ve ordered for clients. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of one of them, but here is one from a fairly recent order. I’ll explain more about what a Standout actually is below these two images.

The image on the left simply shows the Standout straight on but the right side image demonstrates what it looks like from the side. Standouts are portraits mounted on a 3/4″ black substrate with a sleek edge and ready to hang or lean on a shelf or mantle. The back is solid with four holes for mounting to the wall whether it is intended to be hung either landscape or portrait orientation. They are lightweight even in the very large sizes and fit very well particularly in a modern or contemporary decor. They’re also ideal for offices. The beauty of these is their sleek appearance and that they don’t require a frame.

I’ve also made some additions to my website if anyone cares to check it out. In the “Portfolio” section, if you click on the “Samples” I now have a brief explanation about some of the photography products I offer with accompanying photos showing details of those products. There are a few more items I’ve yet to include in that Sample area such as albums, lay flat books, and so on but there is a range of items for you to check out if you have a few moments.

Those are interesting. I’ve never seen them before. They are very sleek looking.

Beautiful portrait and what a lovely quote. Really like these Standouts, you have inspired me to try them out, Diane. Excellent work!

The quote on the image is very true. One I need to remember. I like frames like this and have one painting like that. Very nice for a portrait and what handsome boys.
