Abstract:

"Highlighting the distinction between making, rather than taking photographs, Making Photographs introduces a structured way of developing creative solutions to the work you want to make, fusing personal ideas with knowledge, compositional elements and practical skills. Simmons explores a range of photographic practices, including portraiture, landscape, still life and abstract, and discusses techniques such as directorial photography, photomontage and camera-less photography. With practical exercises and additional reading suggested in each chapter, Making Photographs encourages you to tackle the challenges of the creative process on your own terms, enabling you to make informed choices about your development as a photographer."--Publisher description.
