upsell blog boards as stylish photo collages

Today we're loving the innovative way that Anna of Anna Dammert Photography uses her Blog & Print Inspiration Boards: Well Rounded Collection. Anna shares, "I've been using Blog Boards for a while on my blog and received compliments for the design. Without much effort at all, I decided to use the Blog Boards Well Rounded as a base for a clean yet stylish printed photo collage. It could not have been more easy to transform the templates. For the first collage it was just a matter of tweaking the blog board size to better suit the printing requirements and resolution. After that, I just dragged and dropped the photos into the slots and voilá! For the collage with the images of the bride, I added three square openings below the large images...this way I could fit the cute detail shots of rings and the bouquet in the collage just as the client wished. I really enjoy the blog boards because they work double shift to make my photography look its best both on my blog and on the finished products I offer to my clients. I receive tons of compliments for their clean design and it doesn't take more than a few clicks to make it happen. Before I offered this type of collage, my clients rarely bought large prints. Now they can't resist ordering a collage...or five!" What a fun way to use these templates, Anna! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop!

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!
