View Full Version : Got any ideas?

I've been working on this for quite sometime and seem to have gotten 'editor's block'! Does anyone have any good ideas or suggestions?
I like the idea telling the story of the visitor chronologically and I like the layout. The only thing that looks a little stark is the background, couldn’t you put in an out of focus shot of your garden to match the background in the individual images; may not look good but possibly worth a try.

It's definitely the background I'm having trouble with. Blurry images in the background sounds very, very interesting!

How about having 1 picture central cropped to a diamond shape, your best picture, i like the 4th one and have the other four coming of each corner, soften the edges of all photos, maybe with a feather type effect to keep in fitting with the them. Then finish off with a diagonal frame.
Hope this gives you some ideas

If it is just the background , i would go for a forest shot or trees of some sort, maybe not out of focus but a lot lighter than your main images

Mickey, how about something on this order?

Nice one Terry! I tried this from the other suggestions.

Cool! I like the frame too.

The frame was yours i just used the eyedropper tool to pick a colour out of the bird

Mickeybb did you take the shots with a tripod? If they are all basically composed the same you could use a main pic and then cut the around the bird in all the other shots and put each into a layer of its own. Kinda like a time lapse photography shot of the different stages. Even if you didn't do it with a tripad you could still do it would take more time and attention to details like perspective and shadow but would get you the same effect. You'd also have to maybe do some motion blur and opacity changes for the areas of the bird that overlap. But it might look cool.

Well, that's really nice Frank, but I don't have a picture like that! lol

Mickey I think you might want to be careful of 2 things I see here, that make your pics get lost IMO.
1. The backround is too busy competing
2. The values are too close to your pics and they get lost
