We are thrilled to present our newest creation…and another first of it’s kind…the Inspire Guide: Silhouettes, a complete e-seminar PDF book detailing the art of the digital silhouette.
Some info from the press release:
Taking as its cue the resurgence of the silhouette, the seminar instructs photographers how to create this classic art form with digital media, adding interest to their studio offerings and increasing revenue simultaneously by adding a buzz-worthy specialty item to their studio’s offerings.
Offered as a comprehensive e-seminar in PDF digital book format, the Inspire Guide: Silhouettes enables photographers to learn at home at their own pace. Its 83 beautifully-designed pages detail the process of creating heirloom silhouettes for clients in-depth and step-by-step, including lighting how-to, camera settings, and Photoshop. Detailing each aspect of the creative process, the guide proceeds through set-up, planning, shooting, digital manipulation, designing, marketing, and selling.
After providing a brief history of silhouettes and touching upon the finer points of why a studio might add them to its repertoire, the guide moves into the “how-to” of creating the silhouette with natural or studio light. Replete with ample photos to illustrate set-up and execution, the studio section covers equipment requirements and precise subject placement and posing, metering and camera settings, possible challenges, and a step-by-step guide to the shoot itself.
Once the shoot concludes, the post work begins and the guide details the process in Photoshop meticulously, explaining everything from masking to stylish background papers and flourishes that complete the artistic design. Marketing and sales ideas to create interest among the photographer’s client base conclude the instruction. By the end of the guide, the photographer will have not only the knowledge to execute the classic silhouette but also copious design possibilities as well as marketing and promotion inspiration at his or her disposal. Bundled with over 80 digital design resources including Photoshop backgrounds, silhouette frames, accessories, design elements, and special event marketing postcards, the Inspire Guide: Silhouettes will lead the professional photographer from creation to sale efficiently and, as one would expect from Design Aglow, stylishly.
