Photo Film

Sharing and displaying your favorite photos have come a long way in my lifetime. I can still remember using actual film to snap photos.

Do you remember using film?

To capture a special moment you had to buy film, take the photo/photos, wait until you finished up the entire roll of film, take it to the film developer and then wait days before your pictures were available. That is also all you had too – paper pictures. When I was younger there wasn’t an option for mugs or mouse pads. All we had to share our photos were picture frames and photos albums.

Times have certainly changed. These days you can get instant gratification when you snap a photo and have it made into a beautiful piece of artwork and shipped to your home in no time. Instead of having to flip through endless photo albums to see your favorite photos you can have them turned into artwork and proudly displayed on the walls in your home.

I have several photos (mostly of me, my husband and our kids) displayed around our home. Our kids grew up so quickly that it’s nice that we were able to capture those brief moments in time.

If you have ever had a photo turned into a piece of art, such as a canvas print or a poster, you know that it can be very pricey. It’s a small price to pay for your beloved memories, but for those of you (like me) who are in a tight budget, it’s not that easy to do.

Photo Album

I recently had the opportunity to have a photo of my children turned into a piece of framed artwork from Photography.com.

My kids, being teenagers, tend to fight a lot. It’s only natural. That is what siblings do – especially teenagers.

A year or so ago we had spent they day in New York City, checking out the views from the “Top of the Rock” and doing a few other things. It was a great day.

On our way home we stopped at a lookout point in New Jersey which gives you a great view of the George Washington Bridge and New York City.

My kids were sitting on the rocks enjoying the view and my daughter was taking a million selfies (as teenage girls normally do). At one point she leaned over and pulled my son closer to her and rested her lips on his forehead, as if she was planting a sweet kiss on her baby brother’s head. Then she snapped their picture. I happened to capture the moment from my camera too. It might not be a major life moment, like my daughter’s recent high school graduation or prom, but it was still sweet none the less.

Kids

When I was asked if I wanted to review Photography.com I sent them this picture to turn into a piece of framed art.

My photo arrives pre-framed and ready to hang.

Currently it’s not hanging up (I’m debating on where I want to hang it), so for now it rests on top of the bookcase in the living room. I might actually leave it there. I like how it looks. I have a matching bookcase on the other side of the TV with a canvas print resting on top of it too.

The photo (below) is a bit “grainy” because it was taken with a cellphone. In person the photo is perfect.

Picture

I really love the quality of this print. It’s clear, colorful and very well made. The frame is in great shape too (not lose or wiggly). This would make a great gift for the grandparents, but I am keeping it for myself.

Photography.com doesn’t only offer framed prints. You could also have your favorite photos put on canvas, metal, glass, distressed wood, clocks, done with the look of an acrylic paint and my personal favorite – a photo chalkboard. All of these options would make great gifts for family and friends too.

Take your photos to a whole new level with Aluminyze

Remember back in the day when you took a photo you had it developed and then placed it in a photo album or frame? Those were your options – unless you like to toss photos into a shoe box and bury them in the back of your closet (I have a few boxes like that). Years ago that was all we had available to us. There wasn’t much more you could do with photos.

Over the years companies have found fun ways for you to showcase your favorite photos such as putting your favorite photo on a mug or tee shirt, having a photo blown up to be a poster, putting several favorite photos into a photo book or printed on canvas and turned into a piece of wall art.

I have a few photos printed on canvas and several photos books. I think they are a wonderful way to share and display those photos that mean the most to you.

A company called Aluminyze has taken photo art to a whole new level. Aluminyze infuses your photo image into a solid sheet of aluminum creating a photographic print that is vibrant, durable and very unique.

Aluminyze prints are waterproof, tear proof and UV resistant so you can hang them anywhere you want. I like that they are waterproof. That would be great for anyone who has water issues or lives in a flood zone. Aluminyze is a great way to protect your favorite photos.

The idea of having a photo infused on to a sheet of aluminum sounded very interesting to me. I was super excited when I was offered to have a couple of my favorite photos done by Aluminyze to review. The hard part was picking out which photos.

After going through a lot of my favorite photos I opted to have a photo of all six of our pets turned into an Aluminyze photo as well as a butterfly photo I took years ago at the Bronx Zoo that I especially like.

I cannot tell you how anxious I was to receive my photos from Aluminyze. They were mailed to me quickly. I was surprised at how fast they were delivered.

Check out this brief video that shows you a bit more about Aluminyze.

 

 

The photos are literally infused on to the sheets of aluminum giving them a really unique look. They have a glossy look to them and the butterfly photo which was printed on silver-like aluminum almost has a 3D look to it. When you look at the photo from different angles it looks like it’s popping off the photo. It’s a really cool effect.

The available aluminum are white and silver. You can choose which one is best for you and photo you are using. The Aluminyze website gives some suggestions on which color option to choose depending on the photo.

You can also choose a gloss finish or a matte finish.

Unlike other companies who make artwork out of your photos, Aluminyze can turn your artwork into any shape on aluminum – including iPhone and Galaxy cases. They even have large Aluminyze options for panoramic photos and ornament size options. Personally I love the ornament size one. I was thinking of taking a photo of my kids and having it turned into an Aluminyze ornament to give to the grandparents. That is a wonderful idea! I also like that the ornament will last for a very long time because it’s infused on to aluminum and wont’ get ruined being packed away with the rest of the decorations.

Butterfly photo. The flash on my camera lit up the one side of the photo. This one has almost a 3D effect to it.

There are different mounting options available too – easel, pedestal and wall float. Both of my Aluminyze photos have a wall float on the back of them. It elevates them off the wall a bit and really makes them “pop” when you look at them. They just don’t lie flush to the wall. It’s like they are jumping off the wall. It’s a really interesting effect.

I absolutely LOVE my Aluminyze photos. I wish my photos turned out good enough. They don’t do that Aluminyze photos justice. The quality of the Aluminyze photos is beautiful.

I’m not the only one blown away by how wonderful Aluminyze products are. Check out what other people have to say on the  Aluminyze “showcase” page. They really have the “WOW” factor.

If you have a special photo you want to turn into a unique piece of artwork for your wall – a wedding photo, family photo or just a wonderful photo you captured of nature or the outdoors – Aluminyze will take those photos to a whole new level.

The company even offers pre-made photos if you simply want some beautiful artwork to adorn your walls.

Prices range from $18.95 to $319.95 (that one is for a HUGE photo) depending on the size and shape.

Here is a special discount code – valid through November 30, 2014.
