A weekend away with girlfriends is good for the soul. Even before the trip ended I knew that I wanted to make a photobook of our weekend. And that I wanted to make it while everything was still fresh in my mind. I was able to finish this book over the course of two days, spending approximately 2 – 3 hours each day. I probably would have finished it more quickly if I skipped the photo editing part but I enjoy the editing process and radlab (a photoshop plugin by Totally Rad!) makes it especially easy (and it’s lightning fast!) to do.
Opening page. I like using quotes to set the tone for the book and this one perfectly captured it for us.
We left our DSLR cameras at home so all the photos in this book were taken with our iphones. I was pleased with the quality of the photos and especially happy that the files were large enough to cover 2 page spreads. Some of the night shots were really grainy, but I kind of like the lo-fi quality of those. The only thing that disappointed was the small file size of the photos taken on the reverse camera mode.
Lost a lot of detail in the gutter so this page will be redone before I order copies for my girlfriends.
I included blank pages throughout the book so they can use it for notes/memorabilia keeping. And I plan on using one of those blank pages myself to write a little note to each of them.
