How To Make Good Pictures
I’ve been working on photographing and uploading images of books. Anna, the assistant director, taught me how to use a website that takes PDFs and mimics the page-turning of a physical book, but online.
The first book I’ve photographed and uploaded to the website is a guide from the Kodak Eastman company aptly titled “How to Make Good Pictures.” I don’t have a ton of photography experience, so I was trying to make a good picture of a book that would teach me how to make good pictures, if I chose to read it. I didn’t. Instead I leafed through the funny black and white images of “everyday photographers” from the 1930s.
If you’re wondering what the book’s about, the introduction tells the reader that “its title quite fully explains its mission.”
Here’s a link to the Issuu book I created. Enjoy!
