designing the photobook

Adobe InDesign has been the industry standard for designing photobooks and other publications for over a decade; it is the perfect tool to create elegant and readable layouts that perfectly match your vision. 

This software can be used to create posters, flyers, brochures, magazines, newspapers, presentations, books and ebooks. In this course with Pedro Santos, students will learn how to use InDesign to create a photobook containing their own photographs, but will complete the course with a deep understanding of this software and an ability to use it in other contexts. 

Students should arrive at the first class with a number of images ready to be developed into a book project; however, class time will also be taken to consider how students might make choices about the kinds of photographs that work best for a book. Students will be encouraged to consider how narratives can be formulated with visual content, and the complex relationships that exist between image and text.

More practical topics, including the use of ISBN numbers, Canada Cataloguing in Publication indexing, and publication, will also be covered. 

Students must have a laptop computer with adequate software installed. Participants are expected to have mastered the basics of photography.
