if you really want the team colors to show more then definitely red. otherwise go white.
That's what I was thinking & I couldn't make up my mind either!
I thought about it, but then my drop shadows wouldn't work & I just couldn't give them up! (I know, not a good reason!)
Also, watch the color temp and white balance of each photo.
Part of the problem is the color temp of the gym "lighting". Every part of it doesn't have the same light, as in #1 in the original thread where you can see that the ball is white, but the vertical tape by the antenna isn't. Part of the problem is that I slightly biased in some magenta because I don't care for yellow skin.
I plan to make a full size test print to see how that will work & will tweak the individual images before I deliver the 12X18" print.
the largest photo you are showing is IMHO the most boring of the lot.
I totally agree with you & I'm still thinking about adding another image to the top-left corner of the net.
My problem is that I didn't think it through before I shot & then decided I needed to try & include shots of everyone on the team & I just didn't have all of them, so I used this shot. As they say, PPPPPP!
The red stroke around the text on a red background doesn't look good at all.
From what I see here, I also agree with you on that. But in the full size image, the stroke looks pretty good, so I'll wait to see how the proof comes out.
"crayon" texture in photoshop
I'll take a look at that, too.
(the top left is my favorite)
One of mine, too. I wish I could have had all of her face in it.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment on this. Doing single images is easy compared to trying to get a group of them to work together!
