I finally made a Calendar from my Images

Since we have done some calendars from our World-Trip with our kids for the family, I was tempted to do an “artistic” one for me, and some selected friends.
I used Whitewall, since they let you do a lot of customization and deliver very good quality.

We have initially ordered two separate calendars from the kids in A3, and the result was outstanding.

Then I had to get through my 2500 “good” images from our trip and sort out the ones I would like to use. I marked all “very good” images with a “green tag” in lightroom, so I could just create a smart collection, based on the tag color. I ended up with about 120 images.

I had in mind to create one calendar in “color” and one in more or less “B&W”. One should be A2 landscape and one portrait. So I had then to match the orientation to the calendar. It turned out that the landscape version shall become the colored version and the portrait the black&white.

In the meantime, Franziska came to help and we discussed the images and the order in which they should appear in the calendar.

If you like to have a copy of one of these calendars, let me know and I will create one for you. Also if you don’t like a particular image, I’m happy to change it to something else.

The calendar in size of A2 is available for CHF 100.-

Notes

Snow on the Moon


Date: 2019 09 29 Craters of the Moon

Story:
We walked to the end of the Franz Josef Glacier walk and, on the way back I’ve seen this little waterfall. I already had this photograph in black and white in mind when I took the shoot. And I think it’s one of the best photographs I’ve created during our trip.
