The art in our home is personal in the fact that it’s all photographs of my children. Whether it school pictures, sports shots, or pictures I’ve taken myself, I take pride in my family and display them all on the walls of my home.
When I think of a smart company, it’s one that takes something personal and gives it a fabulous twist on creativity. Modern Bird Studios is that kind of company. Modern Bird Studios creates personalized, modern art from your photographs and hand-paints them on wood to make a timeless, unique piece for any room in your home. You can choose two colors that would match your room’s theme or style and the results are stunning! The process is simple and here are a few tips from their website on how to choose the best picture for your creation.
How do you create each piece?
Each one is an original studio piece created with a combination of digital, hand, and painting processes.
What type and size digital file should I submit?
If you are a casual photographer, a JPG or GIF will do. A high quality image (300 dpi) is preferred, but no less than a medium quality image (72 dpi) will do. Send us what you have, and if there is a problem with the image, we will let you know immediately and try to work something out.
What types of photos work the best?
The best photos are the ones that use a natural source of light without a flash. Photos taken with a flash may work, but the possibilities are less likely. If you submit a photo that does not work, we will contact you to figure out a solution that works in giving you the best painting possible. Please, no nudes. If you send us a nude, we will Tweet it.
On a recent visit to the coast, my daughter who is a dancer, was doing her thing and I captured her in a pose that I just loved. After some thought and trial and error with other family photos, I chose this shot to create a work of art from Modern Bird Studios.
This summer we will be repainting my oldest’s room blue and green, so when we saw the result of her photo, we were truly awe-inspired! (click to enlarge). I also love the littlest detail of her glasses that show in the print!
My daughter came home from school and grinned ear to ear when I showed her the picture. Although her comment was, “I could have done a far better leap!” Dancing and the beach are two of her favorite things, so the composition of this photo art is really special to her and it’s going to look fantastic in her room! It is made on oak and the piece is heavy. We will be sure to not put it over her bed and secure it safely to the wall, we do live in Earthquake country here in California!
Modern Bird Studios has prints as small as 6″X 12″ up to 46″X46″ and make a fabulous gift for a wedding, graduation, or pregnancy/new baby!
I was sent a custom print to facilitate my review. The opinions are my tried-and-true opinions and were not influenced by any source. I was not compensated monetarily to write this post.
