I have been wanting to publish flush mount wedding albums for my brides and so I have spent countless hours on line searching and checking out companies and just trying to understand this industry. My clients do not want to pay $1500 for an album so uploading photos for someone else to build the album is out of the question. I have not been impressed with most of the designs so I want to design my own based on my brides wedding, her colours and her desires for her special day. The album needs to reflect all the wonderful aspects of her day. So this past two weeks I have been spending every spare moment, when not at the other job, absorbing Scott Kelby's Adobe Photoshop CS5 text book, watching on line videos and generally playing in Photoshop CS5. My butt is sore from sitting at this computer so long. But I am having a blast. Even at 1am. Yikes!
Yesterday I tackled my first album and today I will share a few two page spreads from a 12X12 album I am working on.
I am LOVING this. It is a wonderful meld of my photography skills, all I learned with digital scrapbooking in Adobe Photoshop Elements 6, years of laying out scrapbooking pages on my desk and my passion to beautifully capture one of the most important days in a woman's life. And what a wonderful way to take 12 hours of shooting and 40 hours of editing and create a lasting memory of their day.
There you go ~ 4 of the 20 layouts I am working on.
So... what do you think?
