Once you are done taking and manipulating your shots, you can put them together to create a collage-like look. You can use a software program to cut around the different items and string them together within a single canvas.
A more interesting look, however, is to keep the images on their respective canvases. Then use a larger canvas and arrange the images on this canvas so that they make the word. You don’t, however, have to keep them in a straight line. Curve the images, or make a jagged or zigzag line out of the images. The more creative that you can get the better the image is going to look. Just remember that your audience still has to be able to read the word so don’t get so creative that the meaning is lost to others.
If the images are quite different, consider changing your images into black and white. Where a landscape image might clash with a cityscape in color, they’ll look perfectly natural together if you convert the images into monochrome. You can also add a filter to the entire canvas to ensure that the images flow into one another.
Look at the edges of the image, and consider feathering extremely harsh images. This will ensure that the photographs easily blend together. Think about your background. Will your images look better with just a plain background, or could you add another photograph with scenery or people to enhance the overall effect?
Alphabet photography is fun and very rewarding. You’ll start seeing letters in everything after a little while, so always have your camera with you. Many photographers have converted this type of photography into lucrative businesses, especially at street fairs or events. Event-goers often like picking up souvenirs with their names on them. This type of photography offers you a great opportunity to turn your passion into a full-time business.
