I've not posted any of my published stuff in awhile, I thought I'd throw a couple of recent ones out here for you guys to see.

This one just hit the street today.

I'm not sure if I have the eye, but since they pay me the expect me to do it! :lol:

The funny thing is it actually is a learning process to shoot "covers". Not only do you need to shoot vertical, which most photographers don't do much of but you must shoot knowing where the big ugly white address box is going to be placed. I've left it off in these examples as it is ugly.

You also have to know where the title (mast head) and all of the other components are and then still try and frame your shot so the art director will like it. I almost forgot, you also MUST learn to not crop with your eye but do it later in post processing so that again the art director can have maximum flexibility.

Not always the easiest thing to do!

Thanks Dwight!
