USING WHITE POSTER BOARD AS A BACKGROUND
It really does help to know WHAT your plans are with an image AFTER you photograph it so you know how to set up the image.
I wanted an image that had some empty space for text.
So I photographed a clear vase/flowers against white poster board.
After I uploaded the image into the computer I chose a textured background and made it to be a layer. I then adjusted the layer's opacity so it added just enough color to make the total image interesting. But I didn't want the added texture/color to overpower the flowers and the text I would later add.
Challenge for the day:
Start a collection of colored poster boards - but start out with white.
