customizing our templates for photo cards

Our lovely share today comes from Liz Bradley of Elizabeth & Jane Photography.  Liz writes, "I used the Style 1 design from the Visual Poetry Accordion Album Collection to create a beautiful wedding thank you card design. The card is bi-fold so I was able to use the front cover of the album template for the front of the card, the back cover for the back of the card, and I used one of the front spreads for the inside of the card. I changed the colors to fit my couple's color theme and the flowers in the design matched perfectly as the bride had a huge white flower in her hair on her wedding day. Not only does the thank you card look phenomenal, it was the quickest card I've designed, and the quickest client-approved card I've ever made.  The back cover easily allowed me to add my logo for some very easy, and beautiful, targeted marketing straight to every single wedding guest.  I include thank you cards in every wedding collection for this very reason and it is so great that I can use these templates for many different styles and designs. I've even already mocked up a thank you card from another wedding using Style 2 of Visual Poetry! My clients FLIPPED out when they saw their card - they couldn't stop raving about them. They completely loved the cards and I know the guests they send them to will as well. My clients have actually requested that their 12x12 wedding album be done using this style/design as well so that's saying something!" Thanks for the great share Liz... your $75 gift certificate is on the way!

Do you feel overworked and underpaid? Does it pain you to deliver digital images...but no album or wall portraits? Do you believe in tangible products, but don't think your market can support higher priced items?

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!
