Pictures propped against walls, crammed in closets, or carried away by picture-thieving magpies can't be beheld. Increase art visibility with today's Groupon at Tallahassee Photo. Choose between the following options:
- For $50, you get $100 worth of custom framing services.
- For $25, you get a two-hour digital camera class (a $50 value).
The first-rate frame forgers at Tallahassee Photo brandish their geometric prowess to furnish pictures, portraits, and paintings with fanciful fringes. Bolster a favorite movie poster or add an attractive distraction from the stranger in your family portrait with a distinctive border from the cache of more than 200 frame styles (custom framing ranges from $100 to $200). Skilled border buffs can also surgically install custom mats, and mount larger pieces and presentation graphics.
Prospective pupils can choose from basic or intermediate level photography classes that include two hours of time-capturing tutelage. Basic sessions teach skills in posing techniques, camera care, and how to subdue fleeting sports and theater frames. More experienced shooters learn about lenses, f-stops, basic editing, and flash photography in the intermediate echelon. Classes meet Saturdays at 10:30 a.m., though more times may be added based on demand. Call ahead to check current class schedules and reserve a spot.
Tallahassee Photo and Frame
Since 1941, the knowledgeable staff at Tallahassee Photo and Frame has been helping customers take, display, and transform their photos, videos, and artwork. Once photographers have snapped their shots, they can head to the website for online photo-printing services, or they can order photo books, greeting cards, and photo gifts.
The professional framers stock a large selection of frames for custom jobs. They can also inlay their work with custom-cut mats, including those with multiple openings to display shots of everyone in a family or show off a progression of a cat's Christmas sweaters over the years. They're also able to create frame-free canvas and gallery wraps.
For moving pictures, Tallahassee Photo’s staff offers video-transfer services. They use the same equipment employed by the Library of Congress and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to handle 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm films. They can also transfer formats such as VHS and Betamax onto DVDs or transfer old audio formats (such as LP records) onto CDs.
