Making The Image eBook: A Conceptual Guide to Creating Stronger Photographs
As photographers, the process of capturing light and moment drives us with powerful creativity and personal fulfillment. However, in the end, it’s the strength of your images that matters if you want them to have an impact on your audience.
Making The Image is a 50 page eBook that will guide you towards making more powerful photographs. By exploring how the human visual system responds to the world, it breaks down imagery into individual concepts, such as light, color, balance and viewpoint and shows you not only how, but why you should apply those concepts to your own photos in order to make them stronger.
It also explores both the definition and the methodology of creativity as they apply to different types of images and image making, which can help you take a more active role in your photography. Creative photography isn’t just about randomly taking pictures and hoping they come out, it’s about perceiving and anticipating the right moment and going through a process of evaluating the scene and the light, and working through the solutions needed to render it with as much visual power as possible.
Richly illustrated with full page imagery, Making The Image is horizontally formatted, so it’s optimized for computer monitors and the iPad. This also means that if it were counted like most vertically formatted books, the page count would actually number 100 pages, since it’s essentially 50 full page spreads.
This book contains ideas that I’ve been thinking about and utilizing in my imagery for over a decade, and I’m really excited to finally have them all down in one place. I consider it the defining guide on my own photographic style, as it accurately represents how I see and compose my imagery.
Put simply, Making the Image lays out a clear and concise approach to more effective composition. Since the concepts are universal, the techniques outlined in the book are sure to inspire you create photos that will capture both you and your viewer, no matter what style or subject matter you shoot.
