FRAMES: The Almost West Sound Guide Covers

April 25th, 2012 by Meegan Reid

With the completion of this year’s West Sound Guide (a project which forces me sit for hours and hours in front of my computer searching through endless files of images from Larry, our freelancers and I… as I mutter over and over again, “why do we shoot so many photos?!?!?) we get to have a sigh of relief and an opportunity to share with you all a little bit of our process for choosing a cover.

Here’s how that process goes; I search through a whole year’s worth of images looking for interesting/scenic/photos that scream “KITSAP!” and I start widdling down from there. When I get to about 30 I hand them off to managing editor David Nelson and he edits them down, and then the office votes and then a few of us get together to make the final decision.

That’s right, the process is not even close to as interesting as say picking the next American Idol or whichever reality show one may fancy.

But anyway, once that cover is chosen we have a whole folder of “cover wannabes” that never get to have their cover destiny fulfilled. And there are a few of us, who begrudgingly accept this year’s cover but think there was a better option…not that I would be one of them…I mean I may or may not have been pushing pretty hard for the lawnmower man photo or one of umbrellas because come on who are we kidding, it rains here and we all know it. ;)

So what do you think? I’ll post our 2012 cover and than our rejects and you can vote at THIS LINK HERE!
