Wedding photography looks great printed in an album
A wedding is obviously an auspicious occasion and everyone wants those moments to stay afresh forever. Capturing those wonderful moments is best done with a perfect photo album design. However, to get things right and thus impress your customers, you have to pay attention towards a lot of elements. Prominent among the said are detailed below.
Lowered Opacity: There are certain photos that easily grab the viewer’s attention. This can cause him to lose a visual direction and the gracefulness of other images gets almost unnoticed. Lowering opacity of such images helps in manipulating the viewer’s focus. Gradient Fades: These furnish a lax transition between photos.
Gradient Fades can also be used for hiding certain parts of the pictures. Darker images are made to fade into black background and lighter pictures are usually dwindled to white backgrounds. Images on one another: There are certain instances when smaller images are positioned on larger ones by album design companies. This can be helpful when there is only limited space. Sequence actions can also be conveyed via this inset effect.
Blocks and Bars: When images fail to fit to a particular page, bars can be used for filling the remaining space. Also they provide framing. Blocks work well when an image collection doesn’t complete a rectangular shape.
Isn’t it about time that we all threw in the towel and stopped trying to sell wedding albums to clients. The phrase flogging a dead horse comes to mind. Printed images are a thing of the past anyway, and brides just don’t seem receptive to the idea of paying an extra £700 or so on top of the fees for photography anymore. Who can blame them? Wedding albums are finished.
The problem is the album manufacturers. They have totally ruined the business.
Back in what photographers now call ‘the good old days’ every client booked a wedding album, and all wedding photographers offered very similar products at very similar prices. Lovely leather bound matted albums were the order of the day, filled with beautiful properly printed photographs on real photographic paper. Lovely objects lovingly made and treasured by clients and their families for generations. Then came the ‘Storybooks, wedding albums with the images printed on the pages and bound together into book form.
You have set the date for your wedding, arranged the ceremony, booked the venue for the reception, ordered your wedding dress and the dresses for the bridesmaids, flicked through the brochures and picked your honeymoon destination. Yes you have been busy, but there is still more to be arranged and your budget is not as healthy as when you started.
OK what's still to be organised, there is the groom and bestman' s outfits, cake, flowers, photographer, cars the list goes on and on. How is the budget? Looks like you are going to overspend, not unusual, but is there anything that you can economise on.
