VSCO Cam & Artifact Uprising

There are plenty of ways for a person to get a photo book printed these days, but for this project I was dealing with mobile photography. The fact that the images are in a mobile device adds a small bit of complication – getting those photos out of the phone and into a book.

The series of images I wanted to share with Mom were black & white shots from my everyday life here in NYC, shot exclusively with VSCO Cam. Combine those images with the AU Mobile app and I've got everything I need to create a beautiful photo book.

VSCO and Artifact Uprising are two of my favorite photography brands...both seem to understand quality and user interfaces very well. It stands to reason that putting both tools to work on a common goal just makes sense. If you're into photography, I encourage you to try all the services available from both of these companies.

After selecting all your photos for the book, you can rearrange their position and select different styles of page for each image. It's a fun and easy process and only takes a few minutes to complete. And that's it...in 3 short business days, the fine folks at Artifact Uprising are shipping out your new photo book. My Mom loved hers and yours will too.
