    Default Orchid Photography Book Seeks Submissions

    Hi gang! I want to alert you to one of my new projects. I am compiling an orchid photography book. The book will be full color and be published in either hardback or soft cover editions. I created a website (Hard Steam Photography) with information about the publication, submission guidelines, and process. We will be taking submissions of not only photographs, but also poems and short musings centering on orchids. For more information on the book or to enter a submission, please click the link below or point your browser to http://www.hard-steam.com

    I have also included a link on the lobby page of the RVO OrchidTalk forum for quick reference after this thread is no longer active. I have been busy submitting the page to search engines, but that always takes a little while to show significant results. I really hope many of the forum folks will participate since there are so many wonderful photographers here. If you know of someone who might be interested in participating, please feel free to pass on the link. The more submissions we get, the better the book will turn out.


    Thanks for your time.

    Cheers!

    Well, the hard part is now done and the editing and compiling will not happen until the fall, so not too much stress there. I have actually been thinking/working on this idea and website for a couple of months. I am really excited about it. The big thing to do now is to get it listed in lots of places. I am hoping we get a ton of really great submissions. After that, I will work on the marketing and that is fun for me too.

    If I don't stay busy, I feel like I am wasting my time. This project is something I have wanted to do for a long time so I decided to just give it a shot, do it to the best of my ability, and see what happens. I believe it has the potential to be very exciting!

    Thanks for looking!

    Cheers!

    Thank you Jason! The file doesn't necessarily have to be an original file if it meets the size requirements. I hope you do find some or take some you would like to submit!

    Cheers!

    Sure, to show support, I will submit a few. Among the images I posted here, can I submit some of those?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Thank you Hoa! Yes, you can submit any images and as many as you would like. I wanted to do a multiple uploader on the 'Submit Files' page, but the database was too hard to program, so for the electronic submission, a person may only upload one image at a time. This way we can keep up with what image goes with what person and the correct name of the plant, etc...

    Cheers!

    I have a few good pictures, but the background is usually not attractive (no home studio, no photo editing software)... could I submit those and perhaps you can "fix" the background???

    No worries -- submit your files. The background doesn't always have to be black or a solid color for that matter. I hope to have a large mix of different orchids and the ways we see them. I feel sure that not all people prefer the 'glamour' shots anyway. I think both are nice. If you have a question about the background or photo, submit it anyway. Can't hurt to try! And if you really feel the background should be 'fixed' just say so in the comments section and I will do my best!

    Cheers!
