design aglow fan share: standing out in your market

share1 share2 share3 Shannon Grant shares her beautiful product images with us today. She writes, "As a brand-spanking new boutique photography business, I want to concentrate offer my clients little extras in order to make me stand out from the local crowd. When I first came across your blog, I was blown away! Your products are so gorgeous and are exactly what I need in order to differentiate myself from the competition. Here is how I used the Le Petit Jardin preview box and proof border templates. Inspired by another fan share, I ordered a proof book and jazzed it up with these two templates. I also included two mounted 5x5 prints as a gift to the parents. I'm going to drop these off along with the image cd today and I can't wait to see the look on mom's face when she opens the box and lays eyes on these little beauties. For a low cost, these extras are sure to create some buzz and get my business kick-started! Thank you Design Aglow for making it WAY easier to make unique, high quality products! I've never pretended to be a graphic designer but with your help... no one will ever know!"

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
