Here’s the current scene at Blurb: People are participating in a “Homeliest Holiday Sweater” contest. Revelers are getting giddy. Office gift baskets have been raided. Projects are being finalized. Laptops are getting packed up for four days away from our desks.

Before we take some time off for the holidays, we wanted to kick around the idea of “think book” and remind you to carry your camera everywhere this weekend. After all, you’re probably going to be around friends and family, or out and about doing what you love, and that might inspire a few book ideas.

Here are some tips to help you think book:
• Approach your photography with an eye towards telling a story – each shot has the potential to become part of your best book yet.
• Take some photos with the book’s cover in mind.
• Take establishing shots to set a scene. Hint: Try shots that you may not have otherwise considered, like the gift boxes before and after being opened or the dinner table before everyone sits down to eat.
• Invite the people you’re with to add photos and help make a Community Book.
• Capture the details by taking notes – you can use them for captions or descriptive copy.

Whatever you celebrate and whatever you do, whether you’re buried in snow or staring at a plastic snowman standing in 81 degree weather, we hope you enjoy the long weekend, and think book. And if you feel like it, tell us what you’re up to.

We’ll see you on Wednesday, December 26.

  1. Forever Home: adopted dogs and the humans who love them. I just delivered 14 copies of the book today. I guess you could call it a community book. A community of people who love their adopted dogs. Everyone from the shy little vet tech to the 6 foot 6 inch Chief of Animal control got a teary eyed look as they leafed through their book. I have over $100 in profits to give to our Dog Rescue group this weekend. I had a frustrating week of trying to scare up work for myself, too close to the holiday, and I dont see any big jobs coming in the next few weeks. But the looks on these folks faces made my day! The book looks great from a printing standpoint.
