Just in time for the weekend comes another visually stunning eBook from Craft and Vision. VENICE: A Monograph is more of a “photo exploration” eBook this time around, where David covers the theme of loneliness and solitude in a remarkably artistic fashion.
This is the first in a new series from David which will be covering the “Print and Process” when it comes to the craft and vision of photography. As I was reading this latest eBook, I was completely inspired as every image makes you feel the emotion and atmosphere of being present at the time. One of the things I most enjoyed was the sense of motion David creates with these works in particular.
After viewing just over 30 photos (which looks great on the computer, and stunning on the iPad too), the eBook jumps into a section explaining how and why each shot was taken, including the camera settings used (which I find to be very helpful). Here’s a quote from David duChemin on his latest eBook:
“VENICE, A Monograph is the first in The Print & Process series, a series created to give the photograph a place to stand on its own within a small body of work (The Print) followed by a discussion of the creation of those images (The Process). It’s a more intimate look into the process of creation and another attempt by our Craft & Vision team to create books that pair inspiration with solid photographic teaching.
VENICE, A Monograph is a collection of over 30 photographs created along themes of loneliness and solitude over a 5-day period in Venice in May 2010, and followed by a discussion of the Why and the How behind the images. 47pages long, and in PDF format, this first installment of The Print & The Process series is laid
out in landscape format to make viewing equally good on the iPad as well as desktop and laptop computers.”
