Review: Journey Through Java by Mitchell Kanashkevich

Craft & Vision's Print and Process series welcomes another great e-book to its already stellar collection.  Mitchell Kanashkevich, travel and documentary photographer, takes you on a Journey Through Java and the surrounding area.

This e-book gives you an insider's view of life on the road.  Mitchell discusses his preparation, his gear, but most importantly – his motivation and vision – for capturing this work.  Each of the photos draws you into a story. In some, its the story of work – placing one foot in front of the other – so that you can bring money home to your family.  In other photographs, its appreciating the beauty of a glorious world.  From sunsets to sunrises, your world will turned upside down at the magnifsance of a place that is not our home.

I identified greatly with body of work, because of the writing.  As an aspiring photographer, I take every opportunity to learn from others.  Here's a few pointers (from Mitchell) to help you prepare for your next great photographic adventure:

  • Research – find material & photos that discuss the places you are going
  • Learn Basic Language – if you can speak a little language, you won't be viewed so much as an outsider
  • Equipment – plan ahead – take what you need
  • Objectives – identify a few key goals that you want to accomplish from the trip
  • Vision – how will use emotion, light, and surroundings to bring your desired vision to fruition
  • Fun – enjoy your experience

If you are interested in travel photography or documentaries, this e-book is a great resource.  Mitchell's other work – Transcending Travel – is another great resource for travel photographers.  I picked up my copy just a couple of days ago.  Other Craft & Vision e-books or iPad apps are available including Iceland and Chasing Reflections.  Happy Shooting!
