Blurb book available

Post by Sandeha » Mon Feb 03, 2020 4:21 pm

Just to let you know that I have put together a Blurb book of photos taken with film over a seven year period, As Bare As You Dare, covering the preparations for the annual World Naked Bike Ride in Cardiff, Wales, UK. 100+ pages, with a couple of short introductory texts.

Sandeha, it looks good. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole thing (I just ordered it! :) )

Was the square format a requirement of Blurb for the book, or did you shoot them all square? If the latter, it must be film. (Even nicer!)

If you didn't shoot square, I'd be interested to know how you went about reframing pictures and how you felt about it. I have, for thirty years toyed with the idea of making a calendar, and it is always matters of landscape vs portrait vs square format that bog me down!

Blurb software is quite intuitive, and works well
I made a book with the pictures I scanned from my grandpa for my cousins and uncles.
They seems to like it.

The photos I have seen in the flkr makes me eager to go next year with a camera and/or my bike :)
Still undecided, probably both :)

You'd be very welcome, Alex. Everything is organised via a Facebook page, and you'll probably find links there to all the other rides in the UK as well.

Thanks. You'll find an explanation of my shooting square in the book itself. But the book format was to ensure it would be cheap enough for riders who had taken part - and since Blurb rates are by the number of pages and I didn't want to leave any of these shots out, it turned out to be a higher ticket price than I'd hoped.

I used eight different film cameras over the seven years, and just over half the shots were 6x6.
