Preparation for SoFoBoMo


“Difficulty Level: Hard, not technically but in all the things that need to be done in a short period of time ”
– Niels Henrikson

Here is a great blog post I found by Niels Henrikson his preparation before SoFoBoMo preparation. Like everything else in life, a challenge is more easily and confidently encountered when you are prepared for it. And SoFoBoMo is no different. However, as different as people are, their approaches differ as well.

Niel’s strategy is interesting, and very organized. He splits the 31 days into 4 weeks, each week dedicated to one activity.
Here is what he suggests doing each week:
Week 1: Acquiring images
Week 2: Processing the images
Week 3: Editing and sequencing the images
Week 4: Publishing the pdf, uploading it to and patting yourself on the back You are done!

This outline here is a super short summary. You should go read his full blog entry here, with detailed information on each phase and some tips.

“If a photo is worth a thousand words, then a collection of ten (10) images is a short story and 35 images must be a full novel.”

  1. Hi
    At the BLOG section, I do not see any option for SoFoBoMo members to start or post messages / help queries etc.
    It would be nice to have a member’s section.
