It’s Never Been Easier To Create A Stylish Professional Looking Personal Photo Book
A personal photo book is a great way to capture those memories like a fantastic holiday or major event like a wedding. It is also great for those ad hoc moments like nights out with your friends. It all starts with capturing your memory with a photo using a standalone camera or camera phone. Camera phones and smart phones make capturing photo’s really easy. More and more photos are being captured using a camera phone.It all starts with a photo, did you know that over 15 photos taken per second according to Instagram.
Join in the fun and start building your memories by taking photos but rather than upload them to a popular social media site to preserve your memories why not create a personal photo book? So many photos are uploaded but having a photo book is such a great way to entertain a guest at your home. What would you rather do, show your guests pictures of great moments of your life using your computer, or a physical album? People still love the effect of touching, pointing and flicking. Sure it’s great to have your photos on a mobile enabled device like an ipad but it’s just not the same feeling with a personal photo book. You can create as many books as you like and can use them as gifts for your partner, friends, family or anyone really. But before you do use them as a gift, make sure you choose good quality photos.
The Quality Of Your Camera
The quality of the camera you use will go a long way in determining the overall quality of the photos you produce in your personal photo book. Imagine that fantastic holiday photo – the one Gary fell into that fish pond right? It’s a good thing you had a camera and took that memorable shoot that you probably have shared across the world and had hundreds of comments on – so far so interesting but what happens when your mum pops round for tea or your old room mate you bumped into at the coffee shop come down to your home to say ‘hello’ and you want to show that picture? What if they are both there at the same time? Oh my… It’s probably not great passing your ipad around when you could so easily pass them a well created, professional looking – photo book. The great thing about this is that they (your mum and old room mate) will probably be happy to share the your photo book, which is a lot less personal than passing your ipad around. Photos are such a great way to capture history. We have all gone photo crazy with snapping more photos every two minutes than we did as the whole of humanity took in the 1800s. Amazing that…
Chronicle Your Life Using a Personal Photo Book
You can chronicle a birth which will be such a great fun and one your partner will definitely appreciate (Hint). You can have photo books in volumes and have an entire library of photos which can chronicle your life – now that’s a good project idea. One good way of getting to produce your photos in a photo book is to take up a 365 day challenge. The 365 day challenge will be all about taking one photo everyday for 365 days and at the end you should 365 photos that you can use to create a personal photo book – brilliant. Of course you don’t have to stick to doing one photo per day, you could do it once week for example or twice a month. It really doesn’t matter as long as you remain consistent.
Creating one is affordable and prices range from $20 to $30 dollars for a standard photo book but the final amount you actually will depend on the amount of photos you upload, the cover of your photobook, the size of the album and the quality of the paper you choose. Choosing the quality of paper is a bit tricky especially if you have no idea what it feels or looks like so my suggestion is to select the highest quality paper to produce your album. It makes sense to select lower numbers of pictures and use high quality paper than select lots of pictures and choose a low quality paper to print your photos on.
A Personal Photo Book: In Conclusion…
As suggested earlier the quality of your photos depends on your camera quality. To produce a good quality photo book you will want to use a 5 megapixel camera, this will produce a high quality photo book printed on size 10 x 13 inches and an acceptable quality book for 13 x 19 inches..So do not underestimate the power of your megapixel. We are taking more and more photos with our phones and smart phones and the phone companies are falling head over heals to be able to sell you their latest phones with the biggest megapixel! Don’t be fooled – having the biggest megapixel doesn’t mean you get great quality photos, it all depends on what you want to do with the photos you take. Photo books are such a creative way to entertain re-live memories and are not as sterile as albums in cyberspace. There’s nothing that beats having to flick through high quality glossy paper and have a story behind every photos you take. It’s a great conversation starter anywhere you are in the world. It’s affordable, great to hold and a fantastic way of preserving those moments in your life when you can say to the one you love..’ i remember what i was doing when that happened’.
