The College of DuPage Photography Club spent a productive and informative afternoon at the DuPage Framing Center in Wheaton on Sunday, July 17th.
Bob Greene, owner of the Dupage Framing Center, suggested that all members bring a photo to mat at no charge. Those who brought photos were helped with selecting components that would complement their photographs, such as choosing the proper type of mat board, adding fillets, or painting the bevel. Some club members were also interested in framing their photographs, so he showed them the different mouldings he had to offer.
Greene demonstrated how to cut a mat board and add a design to it, such as a v-groove (a thin line carved on the mat board) using his computerized mat cutter. His assistant, Amy Hodapp, who is a current College of DuPage Photography student, was also there to help.
If students are interested in quality matting or framing, they should stop by the shop at 276 E. Geneva Road, Wheaton, IL 60187.You can also check out the store’s website at: http://www.dupageframing.com.
