I just finished Reading “Rabari – Encounters with the Nomadic Tribe”, the latest book by documentary photographer Mitchell Kanashkevic.
This is the result of a big trip he took to get to know and photograph this tribe. He shares his experience in detail, in a way that is most useful for anyone interested in photography.
Mitchell selected 10 images and deconstructs them for us in 10 chapters. For each, he presents the following topics:
– Moment and Pose
– Biggest Challenge
– How I managed it
– Quick tips
– The “what” and the “why” of post processing.
With this structure, we get a detailed glance of all his process, from inspiration to post processing.
What is also interesting are the practical tips given to anyone planning to go on a similar trip (abroad or home).
I couldn’t recommend this book higher. I’ve learned a lot about how to approach an image (starting in your head), how to keep trying and not give up after a couple of shots, how to best interact with the locals, and how to get the best results using Lightroom and Photoshop.
