That would be kinda cool
If there was enough content, you could have chapters. Such as architecture, portrait, landscape. . . Have it limited to one, two, or four pages per person.
The problem would be financing and coordination and even we had a set of books made, who would they me marketed to? If its just for each of us to have a copy, would the benefit of having a physical copy out weigh the cost of a low production run of books? Do the people in this thread really care about seeing and paying for someone else's photos when they could come on here and look for free?
I think its a cool idea and would love to do it but I am not personally in a place where I could help finance something like this unfortunately. If the wife's new company takes off, then it wouldn't be a problem but we are currently living on my pay alone which will be a problem shortly if something doesn't change.
Maybe a go fund me type campaign?
First we would have to see who in here would be willing to submit photos, then talk to a company about potential cost.
Some concepts of photo books i've bought:
Ultra long exposure pinholes (months)
War photographer x2
Agency retrospective (Magnum)
1960s/70s 'almanac' photobooks x2 or x3 (press photography)
Street fashion (early 2000s, various capital cities)
Widelux panoramic (documentary) x2
A low print run DIY book about Antwerpen (old buildings being demolished to make way for the 'new' city, a sort of art/documentary b&w folio)
A collection of photos of London, pre-1900
Annie Leibovitz retrospective
A good read (including the comments):
Got a couple rolls back today, including my first foray into medium format. This was not the best lit picture on the roll, but I like something about it nonetheless.
The other roll was 35mm, I was testing out a Yashica Minister III that was my grandfather's and that I forgot I had. It's in really good shape, and while it was not my favourite thing to shoot, the results were pretty good. This is my girlfriend shortly after taking her hair out of braids.
Green Door.....Pentax MV 50mm Fuji 400
Nikon FM, 35mm F/2 D, TriX pushed 1 stop. HC110 B, Rapid Fixer, Epson V800
Disconnect / conntect?
Testing an old lens to see how it handles flare. The lens did better than expected, but the photographer needs some work. LOL
P645nii, Portra 400.
Nikon F, Nikkor 55 f3.5 pre AI, Tri-X. Not positive but @pixmedic may like this, I think his wife collects them? This one had a price tag of $850 if I recall correctly. This lens really shines close up, distance, eh... so so.
per the Wife:
~1870's ish. its basically a white, and later a white rotary treadle machine.
also basically the same as a frister and rossmann of the same time period.
$850 is egregious.
IF its MINT...AND has the bentwood case (also MINT) MAYBE $400-$500.
this one has a lot of wear on the deck and wheel,
decals look like they have some fading, lifter bar is worn, and the nose plate is pretty worn on the sides. so..not mint by a long shot.
its a rare bird, sure...but you can get near identical models in white and frister&rossmann for less than half that price and actually own a machine that has a name people will actually recognize.
its pretty though.
on an unrelated note, i think your horizon is tilted.
Pardon my mistake. For a moment I though I am on Kijiji.
It's tilted because when framing, lined up with base.
