I haven’t fallen off a cliff, just swamped at work lately. But I’ve still been thinking and reading about folios.
Today I ran across these two “visual workshops” (a DVD based instruction guide) offered by Brooks Jensen (who has obviously been thinking about these things for some time now; I’ve mentioned his site before). The price seems reasonable and I am planning to order at least one of them:
- The Folios Workshop: How to design and produce “folios” of your work.
- PDF Publishing: From a pile of prints or digital files to a finished PDF publication.
I’m pretty happy with the approach that I’ve taken to create PDFs, so I’m less inclined to buy the PDF publishing one, but I still may just for curiosity’s sake.
Two other links I’ll throw out today are:
Renaldi seems to make use of PDFs for quite a number of things photographic, and Ilachinski seems to make portfolios via Blurb books. Both are interesting sites to browse for inspiration.
I was not really as impressed with Blurb for folio-level photo quality, but perhaps it makes sense as a lower cost folio option.
