Ah, the good old 30 Day Photo Challenge. I imagine since I only posted up through day 26, some of you may suspect I didn't complete it. Well, guess what? Your suspicions are wrong! I actually completed the challenge on-time, however, it was during my internet hiatus, and while I was in Duluth, so I didn't get the chance to post the final photos. Not ony did I complete the challenge, I also created a book to showcase the photos. First, here's a look at the photos:
As I mentioned a while back – my goal at the end of the challenge was to create a book to house the photos and photo notes. Using the same template I designed to showcase the photos here on the blog, I created a soft-cover, 5x7 book at Shutterfly. Using their custom path, I uploaded all my individual files and quickly compiled them into an adorable little book.
In addition to the photos, I added a few more informational pages to the beginning and end of the book. The first page highlights a list of the daily photo challenges. The next 30 pages are the photos I captured. After the photos, I included a page which details the challenge and why I participated. The last four pages are a photo legend - which includes details about each photograph. This way, years down the road, I’ll remember the details of the little bits of life I captured throughout the month.
It really was a fun little project and certainly something I'd like to do again. In fact, I'm compiling a list of my own promts to turn into another challenge which I'm considering hosting here on my blog sometime this fall. Sounds fun, right? Any takers? :)
