Customizing your Look Book images

To replace the canvas images within the Look Book sample , simply follow these steps: 1)) Open the desired Look Book image. For the best results, you'll want to work with an image that was shot straight on, without angle or perspective, such as this one: 2)) To eliminate the issue of the shadows on the canvas, simply select the brush tool, sample an area of white near the top left of the image, then paint over the images to give yourself a clean slate to work with. 3)) Using the "Rectangle Tool" (keyboard shortcut "U"), draw a rectangle where one of the canvases used to be. 4)) Duplicate this layer three times to make a set of four canvases and use the "Move Tool" (keyboard shortcut "V") to place them where they should be. 5)) To create the effect of a real shadow from a canvas hanging on a wall, right click on one of the new image layers (currently called "Shape "x"") and select "Blending Options".  When the dialog box pops up, choose "Drop Shadow" and create the desired shadow effect. 6)) To replace the image that appears on the laptop in this image, draw another rectangle using the "Rectangle Tool".  Try to meet the edges of the original image, but there's no need to be exact. 7)) You'll notice that the box doesn't cover all the image.  Simply select EDIT-> TRANSFORM PATH-> SKEW from the top menu in Photshop.  Drag the corners to skew the box until it covers the original image. 8))  You now have five image layers to add your pictures to.  I would suggest renaming them "IMAGE LAYER 1, IMAGE LAYER 2, etc". 9))  To add images to the template, follow the directions located here. 10)) For a more realistic feel once you've added your images, you may want to make each of them a little darker (by decreasing the brightness).

Let's face it, we've all gotten that email that asks us if we offer holiday/off-season/Sunday/dog's birthday discounts. As a girl who loves shopping clearance racks, I get it, I love me a good sale... but always being asked to discount your prices can be disheartening and devaluing as a creative. We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!
