Although my primary creative interest lies solidly on the digital illustration side of things, I admit that I’ve always been a bit of a shutterbug. I have a deep appreciation for good photography, but I felt like I didn’t have the patience to do it myself – it takes a lot of effort to take really good pictures! Because of that, my camera never really came out of the bag unless I was traveling or doing out of the ordinary things.
That all changed when I got my first smartphone back in the summer of 2009. The quality of the camera in that iPhone 3GS wasn’t all that great, but having a camera with me wherever I went totally blew my mind (and greatly expanded my creative horizons). I found myself taking pictures of ordinary things that I never even considered in my pre-smartphone days, and as a result, I quickly started to build up a pretty nice collection of artistic photos to integrate into my work.
This PowerPoint template is a perfect example. It’s pretty rare for me to integrate photography into my stock digital assets, but I’ve decided to flex my creative muscles a bit and start utilizing growing photo collection. Those of you who have been following my work since the beginning will understand how radical of a departure this is for me!
Anyway – the cover slide of this presentation template is a photo that I took several weeks ago during an early-morning walk through the neighborhood. I thought it would be a perfect image for a presentation about the environment or any other type of “green” topic, and I gave it a little extra design spice by overlaying a frosted white transparent card over top. I think that a really thin 1-pixel line drawing of your company logo or icon would look really cool over top of that, so please feel free to experiment with this and make it your own.
