After looking a different photo books and they way they were laid out, we messed around on InDesign looking at different ways we could set up images and text etc.  As the images I currently had were mainly landscape I cropped and choose certain parts within 1 image to cover a page. I was thinking of having my front title page full of writing. As I want the book to be called ‘Transition’ I experimented with having the oxford definition of what transitioning is , I think the explanation of it kind of helps show what the images represent throughout. I mixed images of people and belongings as well as views, like the shots of windows and accessories in the room show a perspective from the subject and also adds a bit of simplicity to the imagery instead of it just being full of portraits, I wanted to mix the content up a bit. In some of the pages where there is a portrait and an object I tried to color match between the pages, just to make the imagery flow better. Some of the images I cleaned and some I kept raw and dirty to add a certain edge I also edited some of the pictures like with colour and design , I thought this would add to the photographs and give an effect of youth by using colours and almost ‘trippy’ effects. When creating my final book I want it to be full of many pages.
