5 Blurb Book Layout Tips

"Do you love the look of full spread bleeds but not sure how to achieve the layout with the free program? It’s not rocket science, but it can be done. Create two full bleed page layouts next to each other. Insert the same photo on each side. Scale exactly the same percentage and then line each photo with the center along the spine."

A Busy Mom’s Blurb Photo Book Review – With A Coupon

Memories are too precious to live on a hard drive.Like many of you, I also have thousands of photos sitting on the computer, waiting for us to open up a file and take a quick click-through.I’m a firm believer in printing out and displaying photos, whether you make a collection of 4 x 6…

photography portfolio with blurb books

  today's post is something a little different then what i usually share on hey modest marce! instead of a recipe post i am focusing on the food photography & styling work i have created for modest marce over the years. i think it is safe to say photography is a huge part of my blog, but it made me sad that literally ALL of my content was digital. i had no hard work to show for it, just images sitting in a folder on my desktop. when blurb books asked me to create a photography book featuring all my hard work i was so excited!!!! i would FINALLY get to see my pictures in print & in the exact style i imagined. blurb is an independent, creative book-making platform that helps you create photo books & magazines in print or digital formats. the templates are professionally designed for you, so all you really have to do is decide which images you want to incorporate into the book. trying to narrow down my favourite images out of the thousands to choose from was the most difficult part for me! then you get to choose the cover style, end sheets & the paper when you are ready to send your book to print. i got the swatch kit so i could see & feel the pages in person before deciding on which paper i wanted to go with. there is something i absolutely LOVE about a food image printed on raw, uncoated paper. it looks rustic & fits well with the style of my photography. i used the polaroids i captured over the summer as inspiration on how i wanted my prints to look in person. i love the subtle & desaturated tones produced with real film. anyways, i hope you enjoy seeing this book as much as i loved making it! i highly suggest making your own if not for a portfolio, but for keep sake to yourself. everything these days is digital & it is nice to see something real once in a while. i got a feeling this book will be proudly displayed on my coffee table for years to come:) this post was created in partnership with blurb books! you can make your own photography book or magazine by clicking the link here.  my book features a hardcover image wrap with proline uncoated paper & light grey proline end sheets:) thank you for supporting the brands that keep modest marce up & running! xo
