When you are shooting, think of leaving empty space (called negative space) for text on your cards. Adding a little something extra to the sentiment like Happy Birthday makes it even more special. This used one of the self-made backgrounds described a few days ago.
This is an image from a wonderful nursery processed with a painterly effect. But it would be great for men or women and a variety of occasions. Be sure to keep the card designs you create for future use. I have noticed very few cards designed for men in the stores and this would be just fine! This could have been nice for Father’s Day!
People love to be recognized for what they do and enjoy. Sports pictures with a cute message always bring a smile. Try photographing a tennis racquet and ball… simple but gets the point. Or perhaps a nice still life of running shoes… basketball or the full court… ice skates… so much you can do to customize your photos!
