Event description

Description

One of the biggest challenges in making photobooks is the initial task of selecting images from the 100's that you have captured to form sequences that carry strong communicative potential in a book.

This workshop is designed to engage the photographer with different processes of distilling images and structuring narrative flow in their photobook projects.

These ideas will be developed concurrently with the hands-on making of 3 photobook forms as 'dummy' books. A dummy is a tester, a sample book – it's a physical object that you can you can hold and turn pages to review the changes that may be required to make a better book. Book designers may make many dummies as a key part of developing a great photobook.

The participant armed with these skills and knowledge will be better prepared to publish their photobook through print-on-demand options.

Beyond this workshop the participant will be able to work with images in digital imaging software programs like Photoshop. It is not the intention of this workshop to give in depth training in these programs.
