LIoP will re-open on the 22nd of June 2020
We all love the idea of having our images archived beautifully that we can dip in and out to select our favourite memories. The best way to do this is with Lightroom .
How do we curate and show them off? Here are some ideas:
Printing is one way. We offer a really cool course – Portfolio Printing that helps you curate images, teaches you about printing and books to use for targeting clients, placing in photoshop and then printing these beauties out. At the moment, of course, this is not possible to do at LIoP HQ but watch this space.
We recommend The Printspace which is around the corner from LIoP and Metro Imaging as two professional print houses that welcome everyone. If you wish to print on something unusual like a block of wood or floor stickers, large format printing, we have good friends at Onward Display.
Another way to display is to layout and design a photography book. We recommend Blurb.
This company was the first to master the self publish and it works with Lightroom and InDesign. For a classic, important photographer to look and understand the flow of a book. Look at Walker Evans American Photographs. It was first published in 1938 and has been reprinted several times.
A contemporary book that might be interesting is Jeff Mermelstein, Hardened recommended by David Campany is another treasure to see how sequencing can work. All these images are taken with an iPhone.
We hope these few ideas will give you inspiration to delve deep and make something for you.
