Tips for Creating Photos that are Unique

I can talk all day, covering tips for creating photos that capture attention, get people talking, or sell off your shelves. As a matter of fact, you can read all day here on PhotographyTalk with dozens and dozens of tips for creating photos with all of the articles already printed.
Today, I will concentrate on some ideas for making the images in the first place and a few ideas from the very upscale photo printing company Saal Digital.
One of the best things about printing with Saal Digital is that you are treated to extremely high-quality prints and a favorable price structure. It's the best of both worlds!
Look for a Different POV

Sometimes all you need to change a good image to an outstanding one is to move around a bit as you’re capturing pictures. The first of our tips for creating photos is that point of view (POV) can control how a person perceives your photo, especially if the POV is nonstandard.
What do I mean by a nonstandard point of view? Change up the angle if you’re taking pics of people, places, or things. Shoot from the side, shoot from a low level, and use different lens focal lengths for forced perspective. Point of view can radically change how the image's subject is perceived.
Make Color Work for You

Controlling color is one of the basics of advanced photography. It includes contrasts, monochromatic views, juxtapositions, and using color as a compositional tool. Combine this with selecting a different point of view for a truly unique photo.
For example, if you’re capturing outdoor portrait images, lower your camera angle so that the point of view puts their blonde, brown, or red hair up against the blue sky of puffy white clouds. Similar ideas work for any subject, such as architecture, nature views, or product advertising.
Printing Tips for Creating Photos That Shout!
Once you have captured your unique images, now you want to think about some tips for creating photos that grab a viewer’s attention by means of presentation. For presentation ideas, I go to my printing companies.
One of my favorite online printing companies is Saal Digital. You’ve already seen me extremely pleased with their products for displaying images and selling package deals to my clients. The photo books they make are some of the best available, period, and you can’t go wrong with the acrylic, fine art paper, canvas, and metal prints they produce.
Saal Digital Photo Bricks
Photo Bricks are an idea so unique I feel they kind of dominate my thoughts of tips for creating photos that grab people’s attention. You know those children’s toys (adults, too) that we played with as kids, and now they have their own specialty mall store? I’m not saying their name…
That’s what these Photo Brocks remind me of. Even if you’ve never seen those toys, the Photo Bricks will immediately make you sit up and take notice. It combines the idea of a traditional photo stand with a puzzle, making it the perfect gift for whatever photo you’ve chosen.
This photo print idea comes in sizes from S to XXL, which corresponds to 3 x 4.3 inches to 11.7 x 17.6 inches, in portrait and landscape orientation. The Photo Bricks are delivered assembled, but you can take it all apart and give the photo as an unassembled puzzle for added fun.
Saal Digital Photo Plaques
The second of my tips for creating photos that grab attention is the Saal Digital Photo Plaques option. Photo Plaques are available as metal, brushed metal, acrylic, and Gallery Prints in glossy or matt finishes.
They are free standing enlargements. You display them by means of chrome feet, an acrylic base, or a wooden stand. These are made in sizes from 3.9 x 5.9 inches up to 7.9 x 21.7 inches.
Saal Digital Acrylic Displays
Similar to the Photo Plaques are the Saal Digital Acrylic Displays. These are also free-standing photos with a built-in stand that can be symmetrical or asymmetric. Size options are from 3.9 x 5.9 inches to 7.9 x 11.8 inches
