Try www.blurb.com (external link) . You can make your own photobooks there. :) quality is really nice, the only problem is shipping sucks (a bit expensive).

Ok so is this normal (me being a newbie).....So I got back into photography, yes think about it all the time. Thinking on how to set up lighting for new shots etc. Now really I'm not shooting a lot, more so reading and gathering gear. So my latest buy was a 85mm 1.2L II and now I just came across a 5D MKII brand new for $1800.00 and a guy hurting that needs money and wants to off his Canon EF L IS USM 600 mm F/4.0 for around $5500.00...... Should I seek help lol

Yes. At that level its sounding like its starting to get dangerous and impulsive spending. :D
and an 1.8mm is an ultra ultra wide angle! I want to see that angle of view.

Well, you better kick up some steam and give that 85/5D2 combo some exercise! And post results in the 85L thread!

As for books, yeah, I've been a fan of good books and have a decent library. I had a real reading passion for quite some time as I began to get "serious" about photography, not to mention Photoshop and then Lightroom.

But, I'll ackgnowledge that the passion has subsided due to personal "stuff" and I have a large pile of unread books beside my bed!

I have seen that site. Yes, shipping is expensive. I have done books in the past with Kodak for family and friends and really like the way they look (except for the last page with the tiny Kodak label on an all white page in the very center).

I forgot that blurb also had a deal where you could do your book in Adobe InDesign and upload it and print it from the InDesign file. My problem is I couldn't figure out how to use InDesign smoothly enough to develop a book.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Hmmm. I just saw that they have a Lightroom version. I'll have to check that out. :D

Bummer.. Apparently your file sizes can't be any bigger than 256K? That will degrade the photos quite a bit I think... 6-7 MB down to 256K... Quite some compression going on there. For a $35+ book with 31 photos in it. This is looking worse all the time I think.

Try Adorama for photo books -- you shouldn't need special software, even with Blurb!

Photobooks. This would be the first I've heard of them really. I might make one of my next shoot for kicks. :)

Use the Color Trade Books. they are really cheap, (cheapest I think) , measures 6x9 inches and has really nice quality, I was surprised actually. very good especially for BW. I never experienced that limit, but then again I used their Booksmart program (no idea how yo use indesign). :D

I thought this was a good one. So, last night, we were visiting my parents' house and my mom was demo'ing how safe one of those ab rollers is (because they made me nervous) and injured her lip. My dad was at work and her lip was split pretty bad so I ended up driving her to the hospital. We took her car. Half way there, I suddenly realized that I had grabbed my camera bag on the way out the door and put it in the back seat lol. Not completely sure what I was expecting pictures of (didn't get any) but inadvertently bringing your camera everywhere seems to be a side effect to me.

That and seeing everything as a studio tool. Snapped this in the hospital room with my cell phone:

Thought that was pretty sweet. The picture doesn't quite do the size of the thing justice (it was massive). However, the light coming off of it wasn't as impressive as I had hoped.

EDIT: For the record, she is fine. She got 5 stitches in her lip but all is well.

Heh! Speaking of which, my daughter (who also enjoys photography) injured herself back in March of '08 and decided that we needed a photographic record of things (and of course I was appointed as the official photog) so, starting in the hospital,
