SoFoBoMo 2010

The Priory Church of St Mary and the Holy Cross, Binham , Norfolk, UK

Last year, you may remember that i took part in an online photography project called Solo Photo Book Month, where i had to shoot, edit and produce a photography book with 35+ photos within 31 days. Well, the Solo Photo Book Month website has been revamped for 2010 and photographers interested in taking part this year can now register. SoFoBoMo 2010 runs from 1st June to 31st July, so you have plenty of time to come up with ideas. Just pick a date to start from and the clock starts ticking down the 31 days.

It doesn't matter what kind of camera you work with - I'm seriously considering using my iPhone to produce the images for my book this year. Just pick a subject and take 35+ photographs. It could be photos on a long walk theme, a theatre production or portraits. Anything! The book i produced last year just documented the everyday events that i saw from/nearby the Medieval city walls of York. Taking the photographs i needed wasn't that hard compared to putting the book together. I found that the most time consuming part of last year's project, but you do learn so much about how photography books are designed and put together.

Solo Photo Book Month is fun and certainly worth a bash. To sign up or to find out more details, click HERE
