To Border or Not to Border...That is the ????

Well, ain't that quaint?!
Hell no, we won't border!
How do you know the photograph is finished without a border?
Depends on the size of the border - a couple pixels is fine, but feathered, beveled or something garish just ain't right!

Oh, the conversation really can go on, and on... and on... and on...  Well, you get the picture!

We would like to hear from you.  Whether it's Instagram or Photoshop , there are millions of opportunities to add on borders/frames.  Is there ever a time when a border is right for a photograph?

We would like to think that our photography needs to stand on its own 2 feet, not base its success on whether it has a border or not.  But please, put your two cents in. (Just remember to stay civil!)  Add it to the comments below, and let us know what you think. 

Don't forget to join us on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ , Twitter, or sneak a peek at our photography on Dakota Visions Photography, LLC. Until next time, we'll see you behind the lens...

  1. I think it depends on the subject. A vast landscape I would never block it in with a border.
    I'd want the viewer's mind to fill in the spaces past the image and allow the landscape to continue on instead of being finite by stopping the eye with a border.

    If it was something I wanted the viewer to focus on like dewdrops on a rose, I may add a vignette to focus their gaze inward to really focus on the subject.

    I don't think you can say yes always or no never. It depends on what you're trying to do
