How to take a picture for a photo coin
Here are some tips for choosing a picture to make into a coin. Please take your time picking the perfect picture! There is a $10 non-refundable fee to turn the picture into a carve-able design. I will always send the design to you for final approval before carving. I am happy to make adjustments, but if you choose NOT to have the design carved at all, your payment will be refunded minus the $10 fee for the time it takes to make the template. Let’s pick out a picture of your loved one and make it into a hand carved piece of art that will hold their memory forever!
1) Be at the subject’s level so the camera angle is straight. What doesn’t work?? Taking a picture of your little dog from directly above him,
2) Choose a clear face or profile. Think "Mug Shots". Make sure the face is clearly toward the camera or looking at a 90 degree angle. Features will look distorted if the camera is on an angle.
3) Have a contrasting background. So.... White dog needs a black background, black dog needs a white background.... black and white dog? Use a blue background or anything that doesn’t blend in with the colors of the subject.
4) Have options. When all else fails, just send me 3 or 4 pictures and I am happy to let you know which one will work best!!
