I have found that with going back to work, I have a little less time to post things on here. This is a poster that I recently created for the Tahoma Girls Soccer Team. It was a difficult picture to take because of harsh mid day sunlight from behind. Overall I really like how it turned out though. This week I am going to be working on a poster for Enumclaw Football.
Here is a finished copy of the 2011 Tahoma Football Poster. We lucked out and had a great day for weather. All togeather a poster like this takes about 5-10 hours to put together. I’m going to create one for the Enumclaw High School Football team next week and will post a copy of it here as well.
So something I do quite frequently for athletic teams is create season calendars. These calendars encompass a lot of work, but I enjoy the challenge of making each one unique. I can spend up to 10-20 hours on a single poster. Oftentimes, I take each players picture individually and then combine them in the finished project. Below is a poster I made last year for Tahoma Soccer. I was able to create much of the poster prior to taking the athletes pictures, so once I took them I was able to just place them into their spots.
For this particular poster, I had the vision in my head prior to starting. I am often asked where I come up with the ideas for the posters. I really don’t have a set way of coming up with ideas. Sometimes I will take the kids pictures and then create the poster around them. Other times, I will do the exact opposite creating the background and then adding in the players.
Today, I am going to create a poster for the Tahoma Football team. Right now I have a few ideas rolling around in my small brain, but am still not sure what the final product will look like. I will post it on here in a couple of days when I get it finished. If you are interested in having me create a picture for your team, let me know.
I just got back this morning from a cruise to Alaska. It was my first time visiting Alaska and it was an awesome opportunity to take some landscape pictures. The trip made three stops in Alaska and then one in Canada on the way back to Seattle. Below are a couple of the pictures that I took while I was there. In the one with the American Flag, the last “rock” in the river, is actually a bald eagle having some lunch.
