Back to School

Hi all

Made a card for BGC -Back to school.  I have made layers of grass,road with papers and hand drawn the shool bus and children on a card , cut it and pasted on the road. clouds are also drawn and cut from a thick card. Used flower beads on the grass. Sentiment is a Printout.
I had seen the image in a book of my kid. Coloured with water colour pencils.

I dont know why my photo comes dull when the image is coloured with pencils. Can anyone share their experience of the way to photograph these kind of images. I took the photo in both day light and in the room. still not satisfied. should learn more to take nice pics.
On a personal note, My son always is the first one to comment on my cards. He was asking where is the driver of this bus and wants this bus to move.  :).

hope you all like it

hi kavitha
Nice drawing ! :) Love the scene you have got going there!!
About what you asked for photography ,there are 3 main points to keep in mind.

1. Make sure the light falls on the Object from front and above , never from behind.

2. Basically click in the morning or afternoon , never in the night , unless you have a very strong lighting system.

3.Always click with a Light color background , white backgrounds give the best effect , Use a chart paper in white for the background or click against a white wall.

Hope that helps

I too get the same problem sometimes, but I adjust the brightness/contrast etc in Photoshop to get the image look exactly like how it looks to the human eye. I have never tried a light box, but heard it's good. Let me know if u try it :)
