About the Book
Second Edition. Updated 45h Quarter 2018.
In Slow Photography, the experience is what counts. SUBLIGHT’s images share my experiences while sailing from the Canadian Maritimes to the Bahama Banks. The 40 fine art photographs reflect the spirit I find in the natural world. As a cofounder of Slow Photography, I believe we make our craft more conscious with deliberate practice. In SUBLIGHT, I suggest ways to practice Slow Photography with a personal bias towards direct experience, stillness, and an awareness of nature’s cycles. Our pace in capturing images has accelerated beyond our ability to convey meaning. To balance this, nothing is more vital for photographers than learning stillness. The book gives examples of Slow Photography that balance to the way we think about our photographic craft. Cultivating our personal awareness is the sole intention in SUBLIGHT. The “how” of our photography is “why” this book exists. You will find two How To index cards for Slow Photography practices at the end of the book. 70 Pages, hardcover, full color.
All proceeds from sales to Bahamas HS youth to help them with college tuition and entrance.
