Making Photographs Summary

Making Photographs: Planning, Developing and Creating Original Photography by Mike Simmons

This book explores a range of photographic practices, including landscape and portraiture, still life and abstract, and considers techniques such as, directorial photography, photomontage and camera-less photography. With case studies and practical exercises, the reader is introduced to a structured way of developing creative solutions to the work they want to make, fusing personal ideas with knowledge, compositional elements and practical skills. The book enables informed choices to be made about the reader's personal growth as a photographer, contributing to the creation of original photographic work that is informed, meaningful and relevant. Additional reading and resources, on historical and contemporary practices, ideas and techniques, are suggested in each chapter to inspire further enquiry and experimentation.

Making Photographs Reviews

This book is a wonderful introduction to the art of 'photographic seeing', and follows the image-making process from inception to final display. It would be a most useful text for students who are beginning their journey into understanding photography, visual culture, and the world around themselves. -- Adam DeKraker, Associate Professor of Photography, Kendall College of Art and Design, USA
