Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and got some good Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals! I’m busy making photo books for Christmas gifts, along with calendars as well. I really need to get a move on if I’m going to make those holiday deadlines! Check out my recent post if you’re interested in my holiday gift ideas. Today’s post is just a quick one on one of my favorite layouts. I call this the “photo shoot” layout.
Here are the four photos I’m going to lay out:
Basically the “photo shoot” layout is a series of photos, most likely taken consecutively, placed into a linear design. There are so many ways you can choose to arrange them, but I’ll show you a couple that I often use.
This one is just a simple arrangement of all four photos in a row, similar to a strip of negatives. In some photo book company software, there’s actually a negative strip photo frame that you can use to emphasize the “photo shoot” look of your layout. This one is inspired by that type of look without the decorative frame. Since our eyes are used to viewing from left to right I put my favorite photo at the end.
Here’s a variation, using a black strip in the background to simulate a negative strip:
In this final layout, I picked the photo I liked best and made that one the focal point by sizing it larger than the others. Clearly I’m telling my viewers which photo I want them to focus on. The other photos play a supporting role.
So, there you have it – my “photo shoot” layouts. Ah, seeing these photos again makes me miss my big belly… ha ha… I hope you’ll give these layouts a try!
