Letters from Home

This project was inspired by a piece done by a New York City photographer who took pictures of neon signs. She cropped each letter and displayed them somewhat the way I have here. As we have no neon where I live, I photographed mail boxes, gravestones, plaques, etc. and made a poster out of the result. I used a close-up setting on my camera, cropped each letter then placed them on a black background.

*note - "Antiques" is good for the "Q". Railroad Crossings are good for the "X", but I had to go to the cemetery for "Z" as in "Ezekiel"

To make it easier I have made a grid template that you can download here.


Crop your letter and copy.
Go to the downloaded grid and with the magic wand in Photoshop, select the small rectangle that corresponds to the placement of your letter (1st rectangle for "A", etc.)
Go to EDIT>PASTE INTO SELECTION to place your letter
With the move tool, resize your letter
Do this for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet
Add the name of your town or city under "Letters From Home"

Tip:
If the letter won't fit into the gridded rectangle; i.e. it is too thin like the "i", place it on a black background, then use move tool to fit it into grid.

Send this to your college bound kid to remind him of his roots or use your letters to form a font by going to:

Thank you. We all have digital cameras now and I think it's fun to think of new ways to use them.

This is such a great idea! Once you have all the letters, you could even use them to spell different words and give as gifts!

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
