Cutcaster DIY: Make your own giftwrap

What is better than handmade for the holidays? Put a little extra special DIY into your gift giving by creating your own gift wrap pattern. Purchase one of our Christmas pattern vector graphics, add personal messages or images and then layout multiple of the pattern until it is about 3′x2′.  Then upload it to Kinko’s or your local copy center and let them know you want it printed on their blueprint oversize machine. It might take a little more design effort, but our Christmas illustrations can make great wrapping paper too!

Wednesday Tech Tip: What to shoot for the holidays

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.

Speaking of holiday lights, candle light can really set a beautiful mood. Check out these Hanukkah candle light shooting tips.
