Ah… weekend! Finally some time for myself. I am still very busy with studying, but I decided to post a little update to make you guys sure I’m still alive.
I haven’t had a lot of time the past few weeks, but I did do some brainstorming on the traveling camera. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, let me explain.
I am going to send a little analogue plastic camera all over the world. As a lot of you have requested, the camera will be called NIK. Nik will be send to 30 bloggers from 30 different countries. Each blogger will be making one picture and then send it to the next blogger. The pictures will all have a common theme. The last blogger will send the camera back to me and I will develop your pictures and make a pretty book. Each blogger whose picture is in the book will get one free. Copies for others who want one can buy one.
The bloggers get their picture published whit a small story about it, the location of the picture, name, and blog website featured. Which means free advertisement for your blog!
I have been looking at how many people have signed in already. Its amazing! I’ve got people from:
- South Africa
- Czech Republic
Thank you for signing in! I’m so so happy!
I still need a few people to sign up for the project. Would you like to participate or do you know someone who would? Go check out the site on which you can enter! You’ll also find some more information.
- Around the world in thirty bloggers-
The theme of the book will be:
-What a tourist doesn’t see-
Ideas and sketches:
so I have been working on the look of the book. It will probably be a hardcover book.
The cover of the book will have the title, and then a sketch of the camera or a picture of the camera, I am still working on it, but its going to look something like this:
The size of the book will be like a normal piece of paper (A4). Something like this:
The text and layout will be like the following pictures. These pictures are made from another book, which I thought would be the perfect example of the look and feel I think our book needs to have.
On the left page, you will find a small text, made by the blogger, explaining what the title and story behind the picture is. The title will be the title you give to your picture.
At the bottom of the story, your name and website will be featured. Its not on the following picture, but imagine it standing about a cm above the page number.
Then on the right page you will see the picture. The only text next to the picture will be:
- Title picture
Don’t know the order of those yet…
Over all, it will look like this:
At the beginning of the book I will write a small text about the book and of course, there will be a list of your blog on there too!
Let me know what you think!
OH! And do you guys want black and white pictures, or color?
