North Light photoshoot
I have a WHOLE new level of respect for those arts and crafts book authors who went before me. There is so much that goes into producing a book, from writing the copy, creating the projects, dividing them into steps, photographing the steps, keeping it all in order, making sense.... all while being creative, interesting and new. Oh my!
Today was the first day of my book photoshoot. I thought that I was really prepared, I had written up the steps, had all of my supplies ready, had even drawn up a shot list. But even still, when I got there I almost had stage fright, I had to create in front of other people, think about what needs to be in each shot so a reader could follow along, pause for the camera while do something I usually do freely, alone. It was fast paced and exhilarating.
I find it hard to visualize what the book will ultimately look like, but I am resting in the knowledge that the photographer, Christine Polomsky and the editor, Liz Casler are pros and they know what to do, they have been here before. They guided the process today so effortlessly, so I know it will turn out great.
I feel like going on to Amazon and rating every North Light book 5 stars and giving the authors and all those involved kuddos for their time and effort.
