PHOTO REQUIREMENTS & CONSIDERATIONS
Above all, what we need are raw photos, meaning they are in their original state from how the camera took them, at full resolution. You don’t have to have a DSLR camera for this - photos taken with your phone’s camera will work great. No editing or cropping whatsoever should be applied to the photos before sending them off; our design team will take care of making you look good! Remember to email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org at their full, original size.
- Try rotating your phone to take both vertical and horizontal photos.
Stand back and make sure you get the entire wall and surrounding scenery included in the photo. No macro shots (photos that are extremely zoomed in to the subject), please. We love to see our planters in their natural habitat, pulling your room, porch, restaurant, storefront, etc. together!
Take photos straight-on rather than at an angle. Angled shots can be fun, but ultimately don’t showcase your vertical garden wall quite as well. If you do get crazy with the angles, make sure you also take some straight-on photos as far back as you can, which allows us more options when cropping the image.
Take photos with a centered composition where your planter/wall is in the middle of the photograph, before playing with asymmetrical compositions. Both can be fantastic, but we like to have the centered photo as a baseline to fall back on.
When taking photos, consider taking process shots or videos, showcasing the styling of the planters' surroundings, including people or yourself in the shot as well as the wall by itself, and taking photos that show your personality.
Finally, we welcome gifs or videos! If you intend to use gifs or videos, please send your highest resolution .gif or .mp4 file to us at email@example.com.
