In an earlier post I discussed the book I have produced on my year-long project – One. To accompany it I’ve made an audio-visual slideshow. Although time-consuming I have to say I really enjoy putting such sequences together. Standalone images are all well and good but don’t compare, in my opinion, to seeing photographs blending into one another against a backdrop of appropriate music. I hope you enjoy it, and for a little under seven minutes are transported to my little wood, in north Kent.
Several years ago I produced an ebook, with a difference, titled The Backstory: Creative Close-Ups. This came about as a result of noticing that there were more than enough ‘how to’ books to satisfy the demands of wildlife and landscape photographers but very few, if any, dealing with the process leading up to the making of the image. I also found that through leading hundreds of workshops there were two things that most photographers wanted to know, which is – how and why did YOU take that photograph? In the ebook I described, in detail, the story behind each image, revealing both the technique and thought process that led up to it with the latter, I firmly believe, being the key ingredient in producing creative and memorable photographs. Four years on, and I have produced another in the same vein, this time dealing with landscapes.
