Very Interesting Read about Understanding the Context of a Photo

I liked this article so much, I decided to post it to my blog!

Here is a great article by Brett and Kate McKay that stresses the importance of studying the context of a photo. ¬†Specifically ownership and time period. ¬†Without studying these variables, the photos in the article would present a much different “picture” than what was intended.


Bosom Buddies: A Photo History of Male Affection

Photo Books–Inkubook

As a picture person I’m completely in love with those do-it-yourself photo books. I can’t think of a nicer gift.

There are plenty of sites that let you create personalized picture books, but there is another one I just found out about. It’s called Inkubook. Like it’s competitors it’s a web-based program with easy-to-use layouts, and text and photo editing tools. They also offer collaboration tools that enable you to invite friends and family to contribute additional photos and text. I get goose bumps thinking about all the great family history applications for that sharing feature.

Softcover books start at $13.95 and hardcovers at $24.95. A variety of sizes are available from 7 x 5 inch landscapes to 11 x 11 inch square format. All books are produced using archival quality 100 lb weight silk paper.
