enhance your photos with beautiful background templates

Looking for new ways to spark that "wow" factor with your clients' images? Janalin of Janalin R Hood Studio & Gallery shares how easy it was for her to make these gorgeous baby announcements: "I made the Beautiful Mats background fit a 5x7 announcement template I was working with from WHCC. I then hand selected to change the color of the background to one that complimented my images, and was done in no time! I love the texture and visual interest that these give the card...almost like wallpaper! With the flexibility of the templates I am able to create unique pieces for my clients and without spending a lot of time. Like most photographers I would rather be shooting than on the computer.

Both of my clients that I did these for were very impressed with the detail and color of the cards. I still get referrals from one in particular that is hanging in one of my clients' office hallway where everyone who visits gets to see!" Thank you for sharing Janalin! Your $75 shopping spree to the shop is on its way! From the shop: For a simple client presentation, just drop session portraits into these elegant mats to make an instant decorative grouping they're sure to fall in love with.

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.
