Takeaways

If you’re planning to make a similar basketball photomanipulation project, here are some of the things you should consider:

  • Photo. The images you choose are important in creating a fiery basketball ad. Include shots where the basketball players are in action or showing strong emotions. These are more powerful than photos of them intentionally striking a pose. Remember that big body and face movements account to more drama and strength. Photos of ballers screaming, jumping, and shooting are the ones that are often used because they demand attention.
  • Color. Black and red dominate most basketball ads because these colors are associated with masculinity and strength. However, you can also explore other colors that exude energy and adrenaline such as yellow or orange. If you want to be experimental, adding a touch of pink and other ‘girly’ colors will come off as an unexpected twist. Remember to keep the colors bold and strong to keep things spunky.
  • Effects. The photo alone won’t make an attention-grabbing ad if not added with post-process techniques. There are countless of drawing and text effects you can try. But don’t overdo it. Minimal enhancements like brush strokes are great in adding oomph to moving images.  For the typography design, simple is also better. Use one to two font types that compliment the ad’s overall look and play with the text placement.
