Create & Refine Your Photo Book
Keron Psillas, Instructor
Dates: June 21st – 24th, 2021 (9am-4pm)
Create and Refine Your Photo Book!
This is such a great way to deepen our relationship to our photography. Making a book demands that we look critically at our work, refine our message, learn the fine art of sequencing, and delve into supportive design.
We’ll look at favorite books (bring one of yours with you), we’ll discuss personal choices in layouts that support your vision. We’ll talk about fonts and front matter and paper and bindings. Whether you want to create a travelogue, a poetic volume of images, or finish a long term project, a book can be either the final expression of your work or a path forward to exhibits and greater collaboration.
Join me to discuss all of these topics and more. We’ll learn the Blurb Bookwright software and get started making your vision a reality in book form!
Class size is limited to 6 to ensure that I can work with each student in a hands-on fashion when we are putting our books together.
