Joy To The World

Yesterday I was at my shoe doctor and when I walked into his shop I saw this bag hanging from his shelf that read "Joie au monde". Since the colors are so bright and I am learning french it appealed to me. That being so I took out my Canon G11 camera and photographed the bag. I was going to add it to, however, I can't because I don't have RAW footage of it, only a .jpg. 
Happy New Year Everyone. May 2011 bring you much Joy!

Production of New Holiday Card

So after spending a full day working on the first holiday card design that I posted to my blog last week, I finally decided that a redesign needed to happen. That being so above you will see the new version.

I set up my lights, photographed this wallet closed, then photographed it opened and in post production I merged the two photos in one frame, played around with different tones for the floor and the background, touched up dust marks, enhanced the colors a bit and added copy. I think it turned out nicely. Do you agree?

Happy Holidays From Helena V. Studio

Yesterday I designed a holiday card that I plan to send out to clients and colleagues. I photographed this message in Chelsea last month and I love how I captured the spirit of an individual walking by the words. Inside the card I plan on writing, "May your dreams come true in 2011." You like?
