I haven't done this in a while so I thought I'd revist one of my favorite pastimes; photoshoping photos. Most of the time, I use photoshop to edit my photos. I use it to crop, color balance or sharpening stuff I've taken for the blog, myself or a client.
Anyway, earlier this summer when I got back into collecting I thought it would be cool to make business cards for myself in the form of baseball cards. Like maybe an "In Action" sort of card, but with me eating a hot dog in the stadium upper deck or standing on the sideline with my cameras around my neck. You know, sort of a ironic take on an action shot.
I never really got around to doing those cards, I guess yard work and various home improvement stuff took over my summer days and when I finally got back into playing around with the designs, I basically just decided to insert myself into some cards that I thought looked cool.
I need to come up with a nickname for this one.
My first go around with collecting was in the late '70's and early '80's so that's the era I borrowed from in my creations.
I couldn't help but try to put myself in the shoes of a legendary sideburns.. I mean player.
Really the hardest thing for me was to try and pose myself in such a way that it would fit the player's body. I really need to recruit someone to help me out with this next time. I think I spent more time trying to photograph myself in the right position than I did with the photo editing.
Anyway, that's all for now. Maybe some other time I finish some actual "home-made" cards to show off.
