VENICE, A Monograph – The Print & The Process.
I know I get excited easily, but I’m more jazzed about today’s ebook release than I’ve been for a while. We’ve started a new series called The Print & The Process and I can’t wait to get it out to you. Which is good because today we’re releasing VENICE, A Monograph, the first in this series. What excites me most is that it steps out of the pattern of the other ebooks we’ve released and does the same thing in a different way. We’re all about combining solid photographic teaching with inspiration and this new series does just that, but it does it a little differently.
VENICE, A Monograph, was shot over 5 rainy days in Venice this past May. A rare chance for me to shoot something much more personal than my usual work, this project allowed me to explore themes of loneliness and solitude and create a small body of work purely for the purpose of discovery and self-expression.
The first 30 pages are the photographs, displayed simply without text or distraction, allowing them to stand on their own. Those are then followed by a discussion of the how and why of my process, and notes about each image, including all relevant EXIF data. Sure, I talk about gear and technique, but those are only the way in which the images were created and one of the things we don’t often explore in photographic education is our intent. This discusses that as well.
VENICE, A Monograph is a 47 page ebook in a downloadable PDF format and is laid out in landscape format to make viewing as good on the iPad as it is on desktop and laptop computers.
