The holidays are quickly approaching, and Cutcaster needs your shots! Christmas is always a popular search, but we’d love to offer Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Kwanzaa and other winter celebration submissions (solstice?). We’re also looking to add more images of winter beyond the typical landscapes and snow covered trees. Take a look at what we already have and then think outside the box- what else says “winter”? Focus on shooting people; think about what kind of outdoor activities you can shoot. Winter is full of possibilities; explore fresh perspectives on old themes.
For inspiration, check out this blog featuring 31 Christmas light photos. Each one uses the warmth or color of the holiday lights, but with very different compositions and themes.
Creating a visual landscape, a backdrop for your work, draws in your audience and helps to give them a sense of who you are. Add fun, colorful retro backgrounds to your website, invitations, newsletters, advertising, and anything else needing these vibrant vectors!
Vintage technology photographs can be used to simply evoke nostalgia, but they can also be effective in illustrating concepts and ideas in an interesting and original way.
For example, pictures of a vintage typewriter or phone would go nicely alongside a story about modern communication, email or letter writing, and an old radio or record player can enhance a story about music, or create contrast in a blog on current music formats like mp3, cds, and the future of music technology. A collection of colorful clocks speaks to the future, the past and all aspects of time. Rusting old cars are a great comment on leaving the past behind and looking towards new concepts (or new cars), and a retro camera is always a terrific image when talking about vision, focus or more literally, photography.
