I want to show you a layout technique for working with photos, when your primary …photo isn't the best one. We're working with a hobby magazine in …PDF landscape format. A 12 page interview with this man. …His name is Bert, is the anchor story of the issue and these are the two photos …that we have. The bigger one is a photo of Bert but …it's not a very good picture, he looks fine, but there is a lot of who who in …the background. A man looking practically in to his ear, …pillows/g, post, truck wheels, all that. The other is a smaller photo of a model …helicopter in flight. The classic approach, especially since …it's an article about him, would be to make Bert the biggest, most important …element on the spread. But, in this case, that would make an …unattractive presentation, and also kind of a static one.…
I mean he's just standing there. So what I want to show you is how to work …around that instead of focusing on him. We'll focusing on what he does which is …fly model helicopters which is what the readers are interested in anyway. …
