Today, I would like to show you a layout, where the photo was taken last fall but the layout itself created during several steps this year. It was made for a challenge where one should use big photos.The one or other of you might have seen the layout before, not yet the making of:
First of all I needed a large photo. Since having been to CAR 2014 (Crop am Rhein) I knew that the 30 cm photos from Fotoporto came as 12 inch (30.5 cm). Here, I have to emphasis the past, as they changed the measurments, which was confirmed by their hotline. What a pity, I really did not want a 0.5 cm border. Julie gave me the advice to order photos online at Rossmann. The same file resulted in a 12 inch photo, where the colors looked different, very artificial and some details got lost in some parts. I did not like the 2 photos I ordered for comparision, at all. Now, I was spoilt for choice, too short photo with great colors or proper sized photo with ugly colors. I went for the great colors.
