Sometimes 1 p.m. counts as the morning. Sometimes you just have a long night, and you wake up hoping no one see's you before you have a shower and a cup of coffee. In your eyes, you look like a mess.
I'm pretty sure you're wrong.
About This Here Project: A little while ago I did a photo shoot with Tayler (pictured in the project photo), and she'd just woken up, didn't feel like changing. And it was amazing! I love that wild hair girls have when they wake up. That right there can make a relationship: opening your eyes in the morning to see this beautiful creature rising with the sun, comfortable as can be in one of your old shirts.
"First Thing in the Morning" is a magazine made to reinforce that. This isn't a glamour magazine, nobody is going to spend hours (or even minutes) putting on makeup; this 25 page magazine will feature three girls having their picture taken with 35mm film and The Impossible Project's instant film shortly after they wake up. There is a lot of emphasis in the world on how girls look, and how they can look better by covering up how they naturally are. Well, we're going to stick to what's real.
What You Get For Being A Backer:
It doesn't take much to be a part of this project. For $1 you can get a PDF download of the magazine, but if you feel like holding something tangible in your hands and want to really be influential in making this happen you can get a physical copy of the magazine, or one of two Polaroids taken for the magazine. (All tiers for backers listed to the right)
Also, this isn't 20 pages of photos/words and then a 5 pages of ads. There are no ads. There is only art.

Risks and challenges
This is a brand new section, and I'm sure it will be useful to any existing/new backers. I've created one magazine and three books via Kickstarter so I'm pretty familiar with the challenges, and there aren't any risks.
1. Time: Since I'm using a different company to have the magazines printed, I don't have the auto template that I've used on previous books and magazines that I've created through blurb.com. This means that with the help of a couple of friends I have to create the magazine using Microsoft Publisher, which will be a learning experience. I hope to have the magazine finished and shipped by the end of October, but if this proves to be a little harder than I expected the latest it will be finished is November.
2. Shipping: This sort of fits in the "Time" category, but the time it takes for the printers to ship the magazine to me determines how quickly they get to you. Also, international shipping time varies so as soon as I get magazines/postcards in, they will be going out to you as quickly as possible.
That's about it as far as challenges go: time is the enemy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
