My Dreamscapes Panel which earned me an Associateship with the Irish Photographic Federation, September 2017 will be on display at the Visual, Carlow. Details to follow.
“So fine was the morning except for a streak of wind here and there that the sea and sky looked all one fabric, as if sails were stuck high up in the sky, or the clouds had dropped down into the sea.”
Virginia Woolf, To The Lighthouse.
I’ve spent the past few months quietly working away on compiling a set of 15 images for a panel I’m submitting to the IPF (Irish Photographic Federation) in September.
I’ve swung from feelings of confidence to doubt on an almost hourly basis but I hope at the end of all this to have a collection of images I’m immensely proud of.
This photograph of a lighthouse will not be part of the panel, or maybe it will…..ahhhhhh!
“affected with periodic insanity dependent on the changes of the moon,” from Old French lunatique “insane,” or directly from Late Latin lunaticus “moon-struck,” from Latin luna “moon”
Just over a week ago I applied to review a photo book product from German based company, Saal-Digital.
In order to design a product with Saal-Digital you need to download their software from their website. It’s very straightforward and provides you with all the product information you need.
I already had a number of images saved as high resolution jpegs saved at 300ppi so all I had to organise was the layout. I choose grey as the background colour and added text beside some of the images.
I love the fact that Saal-Digital do not place their logo all over the book.
After I confirmed my order on a Thursday evening I received an email the next morning to say my order had shipped (I had the reassurance of being able to track my order).
By the Saturday it was with An Post (local postal service). It arrived the following Wednesday which meant I had my photo book in less than a week after designing it.
The Photo Book
You can watch a Youtube video featuring my photo book here, but needless to say the colour reproduction is excellent. The pages are reassuringly thick and the matt finish did justice to every detail of my carefully crafted photographs. As you’ll see from the video there is no Saal-Digital logo anywhere on the book.
The 19×19, 26 page photo book I ordered currently costs £24.95 with £4.95 postage and packaging. It’s a very competitive price and with the quality you’re getting I honestly don’t think it can be beaten.
