Interests

Brief:

To shoot a range of images good enough to be printed in a 30cm square book. 4-5
chapters with text. The book will be based around London UK, Working ideas for chapters are currently "Portrait People, Buildings, Street, Sport, Wealth and/or History.

Working Title options: "City Exposed" or "Taking the Light"

Predicted issues:

  • Digital cameras are native 7x5, not 1x1, I will
    need to consider framing.
  • Prints are reasonably large so need to consider
    format and quality.
  • Cost of printing, may need to put in some
    overtime!

Tools:

  • Canon 50D, Canon 70-200mm L Series, Sigma 30mm,
    Canon 60mm macro, Canon 17-85mm IS.
  • Photoshop
  • Blurb Books - www.blurb.co.uk/
  • Deviant Art critiques (not that I am calling any
    of you tools!!)

 

Preparation:

I would like to think of a story that the book could tell
in images playing to my strengths in photography and digital darkroom. Each
chapter should have a title and a blurb telling the reader the context of the
shots. Each chapter should contain 5-8 shots with a final page talking about
each image, not sure if should be technical or story based, i am leaning towards story but maybe a mix. Storyboard the
book and shot types before shooting.

Thats your radio station right? i cant listen as its on Pandora and they wont let me listen as im in the UK. Sorry!
but if you podcast the MP3s then let me know. 

Glad you like my gallery, it makes my day to hear things like that and encourages me to go out and shoot more (all though that might be a little while as i am in a sling, just had an op on my shoulder!)

Escape Artists is my comic but there is a radio station linked on my devart. I didn't have pandora when I was in the UK - is it banned there? I know some youtube content I could watch in the US, I couldn't watch in the UK. What a bummer! Thank you for the interest, though, if I do make an mp3 collection, I will post it ^_^

Just had another crack at your gallery and it truly is wonderful. I look forward to more. That op sounds frightful. My goodness, may you soon recover!

oh i see, wow over 50 pages thats a lot of comic, i will start reading through. I like comics a lot, mostly Hellboy or other Dark Horse stuff, i just love the darkness and the lines in Mikes art work. But i will read yours. 

yer, licencing is a big thing when the US distribute over here, most stuff is not sold and this not clear for show/play. 
we can get round it by hiding IP addresses but its complex. 

The is more painful than frightful, but thanks for the kind words, im sure ill recover soon enough. 

All the best
:-)
