Don't let that trouble you too much. You may use photoshop or any other s/w and check that on one side of your picture it is 3000 pixels. If the picture is really very good (and the resolution so,so) maybe the publishers can do something about it. It may still appear ok and acceptable for the book. The selection panel will decide.

    No digital camera .... how? You mean you only accept photographs from digital camera users?

    hi hi,

    For film user, you can have the negatives or slides scanned into digital files.

    One of the good place to do scanning is at Cd Alchemy (68424001 look for irene) and request for a good 16 Base scan done by a Kodak machine. Professionals often go there for scanning. 16 Base scan should get you a 6 megapixel image, good enough if you are shooting on 35mm film format. If you shoot on 120 format, might as well go for the 64 Base scan.

    Yeah, take this opportunity to have your films scanned into digital format for posterity and archive before the film deteriorate over time. I have already scanned most of my better shots done on film already, just in case. Films do not last!

    Cd Alchemy is at Kaki Bukit Shun Li Industrial building. If yu drive, can make a visit there. If not, and if you have a lot to scan, they can arrange for a despatch to collect from you.

Selling the book at $40 is just not to re-coup the money spend. Otherwise, how would the book going to be distributed? Send one to every household?

    Well, if you want to compare with some CSers here, in the name of promotiing photography and giving benifits to members, but profiteering in activities they organise.
    e.g. http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=95112, TSWL is indeed a noble project.


    Ask denniskee how difficult it is to organise the Orchard Rd shoot (http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=94490). Still wondering who is sponsoring his project that is going to make a record for the country.
    Yap, it a tough job, but someone has to take it up (me lor). Anyway, my committee are working on it now (getting sponsorship). Will keep every posted. May be having the 3rd meeting sometime next week (wednesday maybe) @ funan food court. Anybody feel like contributing his / her effort to the project are welcome. But even you dont think you can for some reasons, you are still welcome to join us.

    It'll last alright if you submit it to TSWL and it gets accepted. It'll go into our National Archieve with your name on it.

    Is the $40 meant to be printing cost of the book or meant to be profit for the organizer?

    Can I presume Singapore Press Holding will be the printer for the book, and it costs SPH $40 to print the book. There will be no profit from printing the book.
    Thank you.

    I felt that with this offer, at least the photographer gets to see his work published along with the works of the other masters....., and it is a fair exchange, thou not one book for one photo....

    will definately make an attempt to submit my humble works if I can make grade....

    Well, if one has ever attempted to print his own colour pictorial book that is about 300 pages will realise that the cost of printing alone per book is at least $30 to $40. This has not taken into account the cost incurred in the distribution channels. No point publishing a book that is only sold in a few shops, or worse, left on the shelves or warehouse. At this point in time, we shall only say that the book shall be published by a reputable publisher with the appropriate distribution channel to make the book a success not just locally.

    IMO, I hope the books will not only be avialable in singapore, but also oversea (I hope success for it). This will benefit all singaporean as it will help bring in more tourist.

    Thats one of the benefit for the committee of "Officially, Orchard!" project hopes for.

    Well, perhaps it is time to go digital. The DSLRs are more affordable now.
