It's decision making time. Before I designed the first page in my book I chose a bunch of photos that I've taken around Oregon in the last 3 years and moved them into a folder and printed them as contact sheets. The photos are 2" x 1 1/2". I cut the contact sheet apart and narrowed the selection and now I'm at the critical stage of making the final cut. Which 7 photos will best represent Oregon?
I have a spread about the western edge, one about grayness and rain.... now what? Eastern and Central Oregon, for sure. My city (Portland), the rivers, agriculture... by jove, I think I've got it!
My next step will be to do some work in my daily journal. For a big project like this I like to write out my thoughts, first doing some mind-mapping, and then make a plan. Right now I'm feeling like I limited myself to too few pages, but I have only so much time that I want to give to this project and limiting the pages seemed like the best way to handle it.
