hey everyone

so tommorow morning im supposed to shoot my cousin for a Bar-Mitzva invitation. Since he likes fishing we will go to a local stream\creek and have the shooting there. I never shot something like this because im an amatuer and this isn't really my type of photography but i decided to help anyway. so I thought about the invitation and had an idea:
he will hold a fishing rod, and the tip of the fishing rod, where the hook is placed, will hold all of the information about the event:
Date and time
Location
Contact
etc'

and on the back of the invetation there will be a map or something like that.

so, what do you think about the idea? is it possible to do something like that? cause im not an expert in ps and I may ask you guys here for help in pp.
my sig shows my gear, and I know it isn't the best gear out there, but there ain't nothing I can do about it.
If you have any tips or some other ideas i will be happy if you can post some here!
thanks alot!

"fishood"?
Otherwise, I guess that idea could work.

I'm confused--is the fishing rod actually holding the invitation or do you want to make it look like it is in Photoshop?

If you are going to out important information on this real (or computer-generated) piece of card or paper attached to the line near the tip of the rod, I would try some test shots by actually placing a piece of paper on the hook and positioning the subject and choosing camera angle, focal length, etc. with the paper in place. This way you can figure out, compositionally, how you want everything to look so that, should you choose to remove the stand-in piece of paper in favor of a computer-generated version, everything will be compositionally correct. Not necessarily realistic, but correct in terms of the size of the piece of paper in the overall composition so that you can actually fit all of the information on it and make it easy to read - the really important part of the invitation.

Otherwise, you may take some nice pictures of the subject and his fishing rod, but when it comes time to put the CG piece of paper with the party info on it into the image, it will be tiny (so that it makes sense in the image) or inordinately huge compared to the context of the subject within the image.

Otherwise, pick a time of day and a location on the stream where you get the good "golden hour" light - particularly nice with reflection on the water, etc.
