Blog / Daniel Ribar | Photography Now | Scoop.it
I like Daniel Ribar’s photographs for their symmetry and simplicity. Ribar’s work is clean and attentive; the color theory is close to flawless and the subjects are precise.

Thoughts from Across the Cultural Divide: #5 (Bald Eagle)

After a decade in New York City, I saw my first undomesticated roadkill yesterday. That is, unless it was a pet raccoon. I tried to take a picture of it as I passed it at 55 MPH and nearly caused a pileup on the BQE, so just take my word for it.

Conscientious Extended | How to make a photobook

Conscientious Extended | How to make a photobook | Photography Now | Scoop.it

My headline is slight disingenuous: There actually is no simple recipe for photobook making. If you asked ten people about how to make a photobook, you’d probably end up with ten different answers. That said, from what I can tell, most photobook makers seem to agree on quite a few things. So I thought I’d throw my own thoughts into the mix. I hope that some people might find them useful.
