Book Description

Expert photographer and instructor Tim Daly presents over 20 practical projects for the budding photographer to develop their technical and research skills.Each project is a ready-made resource - the assignments vary in size and complexity, exploring a wide range of outputs (print, photobook, blog) and are mindful of limited resources, travelling distances and access to expensive equipment. Within each section are examples of notable photographers from around the world, suggested responses, practice tips, readings from key thinkers and further resources. This book blends understanding of context and technique to help photographers find new ways to work through the creative process.
