Playing with liquids

It has been a couple of weeks since we launched the first of our Photography Activities for Kids series and its proving quite a success. But the one thing I noticed on the website was that there was no content list, which I have now corrected. At the same time I thought I’d give you a peek at a couple of images from Chapter 1: Playing with liquids.

We had been discussing how liquids interact with each other and how we could show it using photographs.

We settled on water and cooking oil photographed in a glass dish with various materials below to show how the liquids interacted.

Josh and I were really pleased with the results.

First eBook published

It’s finally happened 🙂

The first in our series of Photography Activities for Kids has been completed and is now published; its called Creating Patterns.

The idea for the books came one dinner time in one of those conversations with the grand-children and just spiralled.

As the book is about Photography Activities for Kids I wanted to include the kids as much as possible in the process. Josh decided it would be best for me to be the author because I’m an adult and know these things … apparently, and he would take on the role of illustrator.  Sophie was a little put out by this as she wanted to join in too so she was delighted to be designated assistant illustrator.

Both of them were really enthusiastic whilst we were photographing the projects and were amazed and a little shell-shocked when I gave them their own business cards designed from their images.

Over the coming weeks, I will be offering a little insight to each of the chapters.

But if you can’t wait that long the book can be purchased directly from this website and will be sent to you as a pdf.

Two weeks to publication

Its all go at Purple Chameleon Books.

We set ourselves a target launch date of 30th September 2013 and at the moment we are on track to accomplish this deadline.

We have only one more project to complete and write up and the writing for the first book will be complete. The next step will be to fathom out how to publish it as an e-book.

The new website is also under construction and will hopefully be finished by 23rd September.

Our new logo is complete – what do you think of it?

Fingers crossed everything keeps moving smoothly.
