Hi, I've been doing team/individual pics for the last year and would like to try something different with my basketball/soccer team poses. I did the front row kneeling, back row standing on the court and the team sitting on the bleachers. I feel like these poses are old and looking for fresh poses.

Please post your team basketball pics if different from what I've done. Thanks!

Did you design your own templates?

I don't have templates per say because every design is never used twice. For those that are PS literate you'll know what I mean when I say I use masking, layers, etc. to do my work...some of those canned templates you see being sold are, for a lack of a better term..."ugly" and don't give me the unique look I was after. The market I'm appealing to are looking for someone that won't simply insert an image into a template, add a name with plain Ariel text and a huge/hard 20pt drop shadow behind it.

And don't let anyone tell you that it can't be done w/o Adobe PhotoShop or Elements...I've never owned it, and never used it to make anything. I've been using Corel PaintShop Pro since 1989, v1 (Jasc owned it then).

Holy schnikes! These are great. It definitely inspires. Honestly, I'm intimidated to try it because once one parent sees something like this, I'll be stuck in Photoshop forever.

Are you also a graphic designer?? My husband is, and that's all he does. He's been helping me with some of our teams collages and stuff. But, he's been designing templates, just to make it easier to do multiple stuff. But, he designs the templates himself.......

Your stuff is amazing, btw!

Where do I even begin to learn how to do this. I have PSCS5. I've been purchasing templates for years and I'm ready to start designing my own. What is my first step on learning how to do this? I have a good knowledge of ps.....not an expert.

Gave me chills looking at your work.....AWESOME JOB !!!
