When most of us sit down to work on a book, we just fire up Blurb BookSmart or Blurb Bookify and start dropping in photos, rearranging the order as we go. Which works totally fine. But Garry Trinh, our Creative Community Manager from Blurb Australia, takes a different approach:
“I find that by printing all the photos out and placing them all on a table it helps me quickly visualize what photos work well together and gives me a direction on the kind of narrative I can create.”
It’s a really great idea, since having all your images out there together can help suggest arrangements you might not think about when sequencing photos one by one. Plus, it makes for one really great picture of the process. The full results can be seen in Australia Day, a book he made in just a couple of days (maybe there’s something too about having all those photos printed out that drives one to get the project done).
