Inspired by the photographer, jazz guitarist, web designer and general all-round cool dude, Ted Viera, I decided I was going to make a photo zine. What is a zine? It is usually a small circulation, self-published magazine showing original artwork , prose or in my case black and white photographs.
Taking my lead from Ted, I used the Lightroom book module to make pdf’s showing ten or so of my monochrome images. Like him, I split the zine into issues and kept the whole thing nice and simple.
I’ve called the zine View, and you can download it free from A Sensored-View by following the menu link, “View – a Photozine” at the top of the page. It’s all pretty rough and ready, but I like that about it. To ensure I have time to get enough photographs processed for View each month, I’m actually doing the first twelve issues using images I captured in 2016. They will be loaded up at the end of each month, although the first six have already been placed on A Sensored-View.
Please have a look at View, let me know what you think and do pass them around o your friends, they’re free.
Finally, have a look at Ted’s videos on how he did his zine Emulsion below, and how you can do your own if you wish.
