Simon Says -- SimonSawSunlight Photo Technique From time to time its been suggested that RFF have a mentor Photography help section in terms of Technique - how to shoot this or that. 1st of all I had to find someone whose work I really like. 2ndly that photog had to be willing help others. That's the catch: so many excellent photogs just are not wiling to make the time for that, or just as likely, simply don't give a damn about helping others. SimonSawSunlight is an excellent up and coming photog whose work seems to go well beyond his 24 years.

You can view Simon's work at http://www.simonbephotography.com/  and www.facebook.com/simonbphotography Simon has been published in in FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), LFI (Leica Fotografie International) and more recently in Radiate Magazine. He also recently had a large solo-exhibition in Berlin. Not too Shabby! So, let us begin this adventure and see where it goes. Thank for taking this on Simon!

another book, another format! EURYLOCHUS

In the past months I have been working with a tiny little emerging publishing house here in Berlin, which set out to "reinvent" the scroll.

My first book with them, an obscure and vague rendition of a disoriented visit to an island somewhere between actual Ireland and a fantasy of Homer's Aeaea, is called EURYLOCHUS, and you can pre-purchase it through Round not Square's kickstarter campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ion-of-scrolls






You can find out more about the book and other publications in a similar format, by checking out these links:
http://round-not-square.com/portfoli.../eurylochus-3/
http://www.facebook.com/roundnotsquare
http://round-not-square.com/a-comple...el-of-freedom/

and while you're at it, it never hurts to visit these too:

i got my first own prototype to play around with and show off, and to figure out things that need to be adjusted and improved before final production.
thanks again guys, this stuff does depend on the support of others and i'm very grateful for yours!
