From a Photo to a Product

Taking your works to one step farther is some thing you may think about it, most of our photos or some time part of a photo can be a product it self, the trick here is How you crop your image? and What to add to it as a border or texture?

Here is one of my photos from the Colors Atmosphere project [Click the link to read more] I just add a plain RED Rectangular/Square with a texture on it (almost 30% Transparent) and the photo converted to a Greeting Card that you can print and send to Who ever you want with your text message.

Colors Atmosphere

February 21, 2012 4 comments

In general most of our Photos need some magical touches in a way or another, some time we may need to just remove unwanted object from the scene; this is a hard task and really depend on the image and what to be removed, the easiest thing is to tune up the color atmosphere of the photo.

Here is one of my photos in three different ‘Colors Atmosphere‘ and you may tell which you prefer. Also i add the same texture of the candle to the background.(if you can see it!)
