A little book …

Our 2015 book challenge is running strong and we only have two and a half places left in our sign up list. If you would like to be a part of this unique event, then now is the time to sign up!
But do read the details before you commit as it will take a creative investment and a little bit of money.

One question that came back quite often was “where to start?” How to get that ready made book under the Christmas tree and get over the writer’s block created by the white page as this little adventure might be slightly overwhelming at first.

Today I will give you the simple walk through of how I tackled my very first book a few years ago and I use the same selection fundamentals today. It is an easy, straight forward simple way that you can do this weekend for yourself with your own pictures, at your own speed, even if you do not participate in our epic book exchange here on Stuck In Plastic … Continue reading “A little book …”

Getting Ready

Uploading my significant twelve …
This weekend I spent most of the time in my digital light room doing some fun post processing, taking a trip down to memory lane and not being behind the viewfinder shooting new existing stuff. 
I was working on my significant twelve for our Stuck In Plastic book exchange and getting my booklet out to Blurb (yes, I managed).
While I was planning to write a longer post on using Lightroom to create booklets (pretty impressed), and adding some of my findings and musings on creating my significant twelve (yes, I managed to upload and order last night my booklet), Big Inc. has been calling in some favors today and my deep dive into Lightroom books will have to wait a little.
One thing I did want to share with all of you now, is that you still have time to make your own photo book as a perfect Xmas gift for your friends and family (you don’t have to share it with us).
In the below calendar (special kudos to Blurb for the screenshot) you can see your average photo book provider will need your book by mid next week in order to get it delivered under your Xmas tree.

Blurb delivery dates, check your local provider for details …
So, you still have time to create that very personal gift for your loved ones, collect some of your twelve significant moments from your iPhone or DSLR collection, and get them printed in a little (or larger) booklet and surprise the ones you care about with a look back at last years memories.
Use the power of now, and get that booklet created.

Did you know that I revealed my camera of choice in the above image ? I didn’t, but dornyika pointed it out on my last post on IG.  

Did you know that you can have a sneak in the dungeons of Stuck In Plastic and have a peak at the new look and feel ?
