Re: digital media
Just adding, i do not know, but this could also be the very first all digital book from a collective of photographers, not such an undistinguished claim.

Re: To Kikvel about the book you've mention
Cesar you've mention the book from a photo website. Since, there's still many questions on how to start and proceed, why don't you ask this site admin how did they manage to get the book publish maybe they can help us.

Re: digital media
Im fairly sure that the book that was mention as an example by Cesar (kikvel) in one of his previous posting is an only digital picture book since it seems that the site (digital eye) is exclusively about digital photography it think.

Kikvel: Split the discussion
This thread is becoming to large. I suggest that you split it up IE:

Theme or general contence

Filtering, photos, dates etc

Size and publishing

Tech. photo size, digital/scanned etc

Presently there are not so many participating, still it is difficult to follow all details - see what you can do, maybe other ways to divide is actual. I think it is a good idea to start this way before loosing oversight.

>BTW, this book must be about digital photography, NO SCANS.
>That's really what TE is about, the new way to shoot and share photos,
>using this exploding media.

Well, I guess I have to ask Adam to remove my account, then, since I only use slides and all the pictures I present on TE are from scans... :^)

I never read anywhere that TE was about digital photography. If some people have found a new interest in taking picture through the digital media, good for them, but this is definitely *not* what TE is really about.

I just want to add that I'm interested in this project, but I feel very much like Dominique concerning the technical realities that have to be dealt with. I'll follow the thread with interest.

Re: Kikvel: Split the discussion
Important contribution Jack, we are drifting here...

I think that we must start to settle some major aspects, all the process depends of what we want to do!

And now i cleary see 2 roads, and some concerns posted here may vary from wich road we choose:

- Major publication: needing PRO help; needing PRO Lawyers help; needing mega filtering process; needing PRO distribuction media and major financial project behind

- Small publication: doable just by ourselfs (see my last threat), smaller costs, easier shipping and easier formal aspects

If we choose wich way we are heading to, them we can begin the preparation, if we don't know what to do how can we know what to be afraid of?

Some other aspects that i've read in previous messages:

- The photos should be from TE only
- Don't agree with digital only
- the first filtering process should be donations by the members... i do agree with the % distribuition
- Do not agree with favorits filterings... too elistist and may fail (i.e. i do love many photos but never marked any as favorite)
- The photos and notes should be exclusive by TE

A community book made by the community itself!

Re: Kikvel: Split the discussion
g,morning all!
I agree with Jack. Time to create "task forces" to discuss especific topics related to the book. Besides, locate these threads to "TE Projects".
let take my first cup of coffee of the day :))

kikvel 07-01-2005 04:18 PM

It was a good kickstart...
But as Jack mentioned this thread as a first step is done...

we shall create new threads and more spcific ones, so we can focuse on only one thing at a time


kikvel 07-01-2005 04:34 PM

I started a thread requesting permission
from Adam to start using the TE Projects Forum

As soon as we are allowed (if we are), I will post different threads covering major aspects for easier participation.

many thanks for all your contributions so far, it is really good to be with you here
