Snow Girls

Simply a matter of cropping
Most images require little more than a bit of judicial cropping. I painted out the trees behind the girls, but on reflection it might have been better to leave them in. Any design concept is worth revisiting even if you think it’s completed.

This is a royalty free image and the main typeface is Century Gothic. The original photo file came from reshot.com.

Book cover design costs vary depending on whether it’s an ebook or paperback but around £80 ($100) is a good guide.

Parracombe snow

farm in gentle hills snow at night

A chance photo from the main round near Parracombe, Devon. It was taken through a wound down car window, the setting sun had just picked out this farm on a winter’s evening. Serendipity, or fortuitous happenstance, took me past just at that time.

Are we going to get another dump of snow this year? it just keeps raining right now.

When the Bell Rings

Colour isn’t fixed
This was a mono photograph (black and white). Although it would have ‘worked’ like that, and been quite beautiful, it would have had a different impact. The original may have suited another title better. I created a duotone to add colour (a mixture of two colours). I could have used any combination of dark and light colours to produce different ‘moods’. In reality I would match the colour cast to the author’s brief.
