Creating an Art Book - July 16, 2008

Thanks to the advent of digital photography, it's not just the designers who have a chance to manipulate and share their best work. Photographers too are able to sit behind the computer monitor, pull up a shot, open an editing program, grab a pen tablet and make changes.

What is different though is that more and more, photographers and designers are coming to agree on a great way of showing off their work: printed photo books.

Why settle for just printing out a great shot when you can do something more with it? Why settle for a basic portfolio that goes from one image to another when you can block out a page with multiple images, add text, incorporate design elements and show off your work in the same way the masters of photography do - with a coffee table book?

Printed photo books give photographers and designers a bit of an edge: they open up doors to looking at your work in a completely different way. And, when you see things differently, you begin to capture the world a little differently as well: when you see your work laid out for you, you'll find that it's easier to see which changes you want to make - what will make you better at what you do.

Of course, in the meantime, the books can also be used to show your work to gallery owners, prospective clients, family and friends - so really, why would you need anything else?

What Do People Say

Laura, from Underwood, WA
"I just loved my photobook. The color of the photos is just great! I started my photobook last Saturday afternoon and put over eighty photos in the book, finished, proofed and placed the order Sunday afternoon. Now I have the book, this is unbelievable! My husband could not believe I made such a professional book myself! I will definitely make another one for my mom soon. Thank you! "
