I had discussions with a book publisher yesterday to see how he felt about a â€œphotography bookâ€ project I have been mulling over for around 2 or 3 years now. I am pleased to say that he thought it was a good idea, so now the hard graft begins of putting it all together. This is a â€œspecialistâ€ book, so itâ€™s not about going out and taking snaps with your new DSLR, it includes Deep-Sky imaging, photomicroscopy, macrophotography, high-speed photography, pinhole camera photography, special effects photography like â€œLittle Planetâ€ images, and there is even an Appendix on Computer Generated Imagery. I estimate this to be around 250 pages long, coffee-table book size (in landscape format) and printed to an extremely high quality to bring out the best in the images. Current estimate for draft completion â€“ around September/October this year. Weâ€™re off!!
