Self Publishing the Fine Art Photographic Book
The B&H Event Space (420 9th Ave., Manhattan)
Almost every photographer wants to publish a photographic book of their work. A professionally produced fine art book is an excellent medium for exhibiting and promoting a body of work. With the emergence of high quality commercial digital presses and the availability of design software it has now become a viable reality.
Photographer Shannon Richardson self published his book “Route 66 American Icon” handling every aspect of the process. The class will cover the details of design and layout such as: understanding image preparation, soft proofing for accurate reproduction, using Adobe Indesign to create a print ready PDF file, working with the printer to achieve the finished product, and how to take advantage of the internet / social network sites for promotion and marketing.
