When I first started planning this book I got really excited about learning all the new techniques I was going write about: light painting, redscale, and Polaroid to name but a few, However, I quickly realized that writing about all of the techniques myself, learning some of them from scratch, was not going to produce the best book possible. There are many photographers I draw inspiration from and greatly admire, so, once I had a contents list, instead of just drawing inspiration from them, I asked some of my peers to contribute, to help me make this book as inspiring and as useful as possible for you.
