1 Inch Space on All Edges

We were critiquing student work a few days ago in my photography class. What I noticed between the student work I liked versus the ones I was not as fond of based off of first appearance was the way the work was presented. Student photographs, regardless of the actual subject in the photograph, looked much cleaner and pleasing to look at when they had left white margins or borders around the whole printed photograph.
In terms of design and other arts, this puts into aspect how you want your work to come off as the most appealing. Being aware of how you present your design will be especially helpful. I’ve realized that a white border around my photographs make them much more beautiful to look at even if they were excellent images without the borders. Presentation and display of your work is always important.

Here is a link to one of my favorite photographers on Instagram that posts images with these borders.
