SoFoBoMo

SoFoBoMo : Solo Photo Bool Month. Well I have just signed up to this project. My book will be called " Black & White Flower Power " and will be done over the month of May with a little forward planning before then. The post I did a while back called Tulip put the idea into my head. I shoot Landscapes not flowers, so it's a new challange for me and one I am looking forward to doing.

What is SoFoBoMo :

SoFoBoMo is short for Solo Photo Book Month - a group event where a bunch of photographers all make solo photo books start to finish, in 31 days, at more or less the same time. It's modeled loosely on NaNoWriMo, where participating writers all write novels in a month, and NaSoAlMo, where musicians write and record solo albums in a month.

For SoFoBoMo, the goal is to make the photos, write any needed text, layout the book, and produce a PDF image of the book, all in 31 days. Rather than confining it to a single calendar month, we use a 'fuzzy month', where you can pick any contiguous 31 day period inside a two month window - this makes it a bit more flexible and encourages broader participation.
