v    Find objects that look like the alphabet letters to spell out your name

v    Objects that look like alphabet  letters (NOT letters on signs)

v    Move in close so that it is easily recognizable as a letter-

o      Example- tree branches that look like a V. Blur out the background when taking the picture so the V of the tree branches is easily readable as the letter V.

v    DO NOT move objects together to look like the letter- MUST find it naturally!!

v    Open each photo then open a new photoshop page 20 inches Width, 10 inches Height  240 ppi resolution

v    Drag the individual pictures onto the new 20 x 10 page.

v    Pull out the guides so letters are spaced evenly and crop pictures to fit.
