Photobook of Newtown\’s Photowalk

I\’m a self published author now. That\’s sound good right? Blurb photo book is fun to do and it can be done easily with Lightroom Book Module. This is my second time printing out a photo book. I should start to print out more books as I travel around Australia or any journey I\’ve done in my life. It is part of my memories that is on paper. 

The funny thing about being your own publish author is that the price is way too high. I could print it bulk and gets a lot cheaper and sell it back to the public. Or use a kick-starter campaign to great a public interest in the book. I\’ll might do that one day on a very special project that I wanted more public awareness then I\’ll print it out in bulk and share it the public.

How much do I make with this book? The cost price is $83 and my profit is $7 dollars. Not even the cost of a memory card these days. I need to sell heaps of book to make a living as an author. I did order one for myself as a personal collection. I\’m the first customer. Who want to be the second? You can view the full book above and support me if you like. 

If you want how to make your own book in Lightroom, check out the tutorial by Adobe instructors below. Good-luck with you next book project. It adds another dimension of your creativity and when you out shooting you might think of series of photos that could explain the story better in a book format.

I'm a freelance makeup artist from Sydney, Australia. If you hang around creative people long enough you well get the bug to create as well. So now I am into photography, timelapse photography and maybe video/film later.
