Another etched photograph idea. My customer didn't want any of the templates listed on my website. She wanted something simple yet masculine. There was a quote that was very important to her that needed to be added. I didn't concentrate to much on the graphic elements but gave her a clean, straight edge double frame to highlight the picture. The picture was actually taken much further back, but I cropped it and blew it up to emphasize the most important part... the hug and let the words stand strong and bold below expressing how she felt.
