Tip: Take more than one picture for each letter. This will give you more options for Step 3.
Tip: Look beyond the obvious. Once you have exhausted - what you think are - all your resources and options, look again. Take little breaks. Look again. The more you look the more you find.
Tip: In Step 3, remember to see what the complete picture looks like in both color and black and white.
Tip: These make excellent gifts.
LEAPIN' INTO PHOTOGRAPHY WITH LETTER ART
1. Think of a word that motivates, inspires, or makes you feel happy. If several come to mind, write them all down.
2. Walk around your house, yard, and/or neighborhood and take pictures of subjects that look like the letters in your word. Is that a ladder? No, it's an "A." Is that a garden hose? Nope, an "S." Keep looking and snapping pictures until you find all the letters of your word.
3. Put them all together in one image.
