Editing and Sequencing for Photobooks
This workshop is an introduction to the editing and sequencing of images. You will be exploring techniques that will enable you to work towards a body of work that can be made into a book. This course is aimed at beginners and intermediates.

At the start of the session, attendees will be asked to consider a selection of photobooks as a source of inspiration together with a consideration of how your photographs could be sequenced for your own.

Participants will be given their printed out images, gathered from the previous walk-about workshop or by prior arrangement. These will be used to help work through the editing and final sequencing of the images. 

Each participant will be given the opportunity to discuss and understand the importance of selecting the strongest images that work within a sequence, as well as within a book format.

If attendees are only attending this workshop, arrangements will be made for them to send images to Tabitha.  Please email the RPS reception as soon as you book to receive further instructions reception@rps.org

Learning outcomes:

·      Participants will learn the value of using photo books as a source of inspiration.

·       They will be given opportunities for reflection and contemplation of their work, in order that they might see their images in a different light, re-thinking the pictures importance as a series and not just individually.

·      Attendees will be encouraged to considering their images as working within a sequence.

·       Participants will learn editing techniques and considerations.
