I watched several videos with Scott Kelby talking about the fact that on the way home in the plane from any of his trips he makes a book of his best photos and has it printed. He explains in detail how he does it in his Lightroom 4 book that is now in pieces because I have used it so often. I decided to do my own book using the template in the Lightroom program from Blurb to make my first book about my garden in 2012. It took me a few weeks of choosing the photos and then editing and resizing them and deciding what photo would go on any page etc. but finally I had it the way I wanted it and then just sent it to Blurb for printing. In about three weeks I had my first published book in my hands. I was very happy with the quality of the book that I will do another one soon.
To me a book is a necessity. I have several of them on the go at any one time. I may be reading a novel but I have gardening mags and photography books piled up to look at daily. At the moment I just finished Tottering in my Garden that was loaned to me by one of the ladies in my horticulture group. It was based in and around the Toronto area so I could relate. The other is one that I quickly picked from the new books at the library to occupy me while I visit my husband in hospital. The cup is a favourite coffee mug. I have added two textures from Bonnie’s Pixel Dust Photo Art collection: Sibelle and Dropcloth.
I am joining Mary for Thursday Inspiration where the theme this week is book/s and Bonnie for PhotoArtFriday where she encourages us to let our inner artist out every week. I hope that you are having a great week. We are still anxiously awaiting the birth of our first granddaughter who seems reluctant to enter into this cold weather. Can you blame her! Mommy is quite anxious as are the rest of the family.
