As one of the newer forms of artistic expression, photography has come a long way.  Progressing past its most basic function of capturing an image, photography portrays moments in time that can be anything from somber to theatrical.  Considering this, it is crucial to frame photographs in a way that enhances not only their aesthetic beauty but their story as well.  Options for framing photography include the following: placing an image in a box or portfolio, mounting or matting the image, adding complimentary elements such as a backing board, window boarder, or applying a sheet of glass to the image.  Each of these options implies specific and unique undertones that can manipulate the way the viewer perceives the photograph.
