How fun to see someone sharing my Editing Guide on a photography site no less. The article, Making Photos With a Story from small things, is about putting together a Set Design using small things like toys to create an image(s) that tell a story. There are some very creative story ideas in the article. It’s well worth reading.
Paul Robertson says, “The ‘story’ can be anything you like but since we are using toys; you might like to make it a fun or humorous story in this case.” He suggests these scenes can be created using toys like Legos, for example, to illustrate scenes in a children’s book. (He says to be sure to get permission from a product’s manufacturer before using them for profit of advertising).
The author includes my Editing Guide at the end of the article, which includes Tip #3:
Do the illustrations (children’s book):
- Fit the story theme and tone
- Bring the story to life
- Fit the age of the audience
- Follow the order of the story
The author shared my bio so I forgive him for not including the link to my Ediing Guide on my Teal Dabblers Blog, but a link to the source should always be included along with the author of the article. http://www.tealpublishing.com/teal-dabblers-blog/editing-guide.
