SoFoBoMo…anyone?

I had recently took up this challenge to make a photo a day…read on..

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.

So far 876 people have signed up for SoFoBoMo ’09 and 179 books have been completed. View all completed books here.

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.

I will share my daily picture here or you can go to below link to download a PDF (31 days from now:))

    You do realize that it’s 35 photos, not a photo a day? And that two month window closes at midnight tonight? And that then SoFoBoMo is over for this go around?

    You are aware the challenge is 31 days between 1st May 2009 and 31st June? So you’d have to have started on the 1st June to get the full 31 days…
