hey everyone!
it seems like there was a decent amount of interest in making a poladroid book, so i'm going to get the ball rolling on this one.

if you would like to be included in the book, please submit a response to this thread with a link to the shot you want included (must be highest res available).

i'm going to make the book via blurb - that way everyone can order their own copy directly from blurb's site. i can make it available in hardcover and softcover and am thinking their 7x7 size is our best option (and the cheapest!)

i guess depending on the number of submissions we can either do multiple editions or vote on which shots should be included? what do you think? definitely want everyone to have an equal chance to be in the book, so suggestions on how to manage a large number of entries would be great.

looking forward to seeing the submissions!

Great idea!
How long do we have? I have some shots I would love to turn into polaroids, but the software isn't available for Windows yet.
morningaltruist 10 years ago
i was going to give till the 15th of jan, but i'll give people waiting for the windows version a couple weeks after it comes out to submit photos. i've been receiving some submissions via flickr mail but would love to see more submissions here, so everyone gets an idea of what else is being submitted. thanks!
Okay cool thanks. :D

luxuriant interest [deleted] Posted 10 years ago. Edited by luxuriant interest (member) 10 years ago
Thats nice. :)
But I wonder how it works because if you were to put them in a book, hasn't it got to print out like a polaroid? Hmm ..

anyway here's mine .. can I post a couple? You can choose from the best ones.


I didn't know which one to pick, so here are a couple, you can pick the best one, or the one to use for the book.

feel free to submit multiple shots, but just keep in mind not all of them will make it into the book - so really be sure to pick the best of your shots for submission.

also, i've received a few emails about using traditional polaroid photos. as much as i love them, this book will be of poladroids made with the poladroid software.

keep'm coming!
Great, thank you playrawkstar. I understand what you mean, I'll try to pick only the best shots.

I'm curious about how the final shape of the book is going to be determined. I know there was a request for suggestions about this at the start of this thread, but I haven't seen too much about how it might be done.

Any progress on this front?
morningaltruist 10 years ago
the book will be a 7x7 hardcover. =)
Here are a few of mine I can take off the watermark if you want to use them!

i'd love a picture book with the pictures stuck into the plastic sheets... and each picture book would be different.

here's what i'd like to see in the book: farm4.static.flickr.com/3081/3194858781_abe7efb743_b.jpg


the windmill is on the corner of where my sister lives in amsterdam, the windmill is actually a brewery! the beer they produce is biological and pretty strong (6% + 9%) and they serve it at the venue where i work in rotterdam! i think the flags are up because of a childrens party, there is a playground there if you can see it!
