Jan 1st 2024 Creating Photobook Assets at Waterside Edge

On yesterday’s journal entry I wrote we were heading off to Mablethorpe for New Year’s day, and then we switched to Barton Upon Humber and the Water’s Edge Country Park, which I had been intending to visit later this week to start creating assets for the photobook workshops I am teaching this month and into February.

Whilst Jessica and Jay set off for a fast walk, Shona and I meandered around with our cameras, Shona using her mobile phone, and the Ricoh GRIII diary for myself. I am finding using the Ricoh liberating for some reason, and the 28mm (full frame equiv.) lens forcing a different type of approach to making a set of images. I am really enjoying using it.

I have selected just over 60 images from this first visit and uploaded them to a flickr album (click here to see it)
and then from these I will select 24 to use alongside text to make a photobook during this coming Saturday’s photobook workshop.

The Great World of Photobooks?

Throughout January I am running a number of online photobook courses that cover the whole process from creating a way of making photography for a photobook, how a photobook is different to an album of photographs, to designing a photobook using Affinity Publisher. Most of the courses are fully booked, but there are a couple of spaces available on the February date.

Would you like to learn how to design your own photobooks?
