Digital Photo-Book: how to make your own book with Blurb

With the rapid rise in popularity of on-demand printing services such as, photographers can now produce eye-catching photobooks and exhibition catalogues for as little as £10.

Workshop content
Over the course we will sequence a selection of your images into a book using two different software tools: Lightroom's Book module or Blurb’s easy to use BookSmart application. You will learn about page layout including captions and cover design and examine different paper qualities, book formats and costs. We will also use a colour managed workflow to ensure you prepare your files to get the best possible printed result.

What you need to bring along
80-100 UNEDITED image files in either RAW or JPEG format. Black and white photographers should save their files as RGB’s rather than Greyscales. A USB pen drive will be useful for transporting your work.


What level is the course?
You will need to have some knowledge of image processing but no experience of using book design software is necessary.

Either bring a packed lunch or use local facilities.

The Tutor
The workshop will be lead by photographer and author Tim Daly. Tim is a contributor to many photography magazines including the British Journal of Photography, Black and White Photography, Photo-District News. His book, Creating Digital Photobooks is published by Argentum.
