Says Ian Clements
about this book:
Julieanne Kost uses her shots from the window seat of an airplane as examples
in a discussion of photography and the creative thought process.
Surprisingly, the book has more photographs than I would have thought. Many
are of places I recognize from my own travels around the country in the window
The author starts out with a list of things that contribute to the creative
process. Such things as mastering the tools, being open to things that come
your way and my favorite, sharing what you know and learning from others.
From there, we learn about the desire to be creative given the demands of
travel and subsequently through the process of creating a book.
The appendix does give information on data management and some on editing
in PS but otherwise, this is not a book that will teach you step-by-step how
to be creative. I found it useful to contemplate some of the things in the
first chapters as I looked at the photographs in the book (I would guess the
book is maybe eighty five percent pictures).
I enjoyed the book. It's a quick read and you'll enjoy looking at the pictures
as you think about the creative process.
You can order it through Amazon: Window Seat : The Art of Digital Photography and Creative Thinking
