After my teaser I started to think about what kind of photos I have ready, to design a new blurb photo book. Of course some photos I took on our last vacation to Scotland are worth to be printed into a photo book. You can preview my book online, but if you want you can also buy a printed copy. The book is titled “Bilder einer Schottlandreise. Photos of a journey to Scotland”. Blurb offers several tools to advertise your book to your audience.
Prior to my vacation to Scotland I bought a filter holder to be more precise the Cokin Z-Pro. Along with it several Cokin ND filters and a 10 stop ND grey filter from Hitech. My decision to buy the Cokin Z-Pro and the Hitech 10 stop filter was driven by the price and the fact, that all the Lee stuff was out of stock and delivery times were several weeks long, time I did not had. I am very disappointed about the Hitech filter because of its reddish color cast. Therefore I decided to buy the Big Stopper from Lee filters along with the Lee filter holder. Now having both filter holder side by side, I understand why you should not make use of the Lee Big Stopper in a Cokin filter holder.
Making your own photo book with Lightroom and Blurb – Up to now I developed and organized my RAW photos with Apples Aperture. Last christmas I purchased Lightroom in addition. The support that can be found at the internet such as blog-posts, tutorials and forums show that Lightroom seems to be more popular. Of course you can find equivalent support for Aperture, but you have fewer options. What I liked from the first moment I started using Lightroom is and was the RAW development. I will not discuss pros and cons of both applications here.
