Shutter Effect is a thesis/book I wrote for my final year of my B.F.A degree in Graphic Design, which was nearly three years ago. The thesis explores digital steps towards photography from an amateur to a professional.
This is the first book I ever wrote and designed. It was a challenge intellectually and also aesthetically as I never designed a book or conducted interviews before but I certainly enjoyed it! I went on a hunt to interview photographers here in Barbados and across the internet. During the course of research I already had been investing a lot of time on the popular art site deviantART so I interviewed and featured some of my favourite photographers there. I also included my photography throughout most of the book and mainly as the cover pages for the chapters.
I was so keen on not letting what I learnt just remain stacked away in a drawer so I got permission from everyone involved and published it to share on issuu.com.
You can read the full book and see a few images on my website here
If you do read it, would love to know what you think! :)

Wow, this is such an impressive project. It looks very comprehensive, the visuals look fantastic and I love the variety you can see even from looking through those couple of photographs on your site. The cover design works perfectly for the name too. That's really excellent that you managed to get the permissions to publish it, it would have been such a shame to not be able to share it. I've only read chapter 1 so far but the historical development is explained in a really concise, clear way that's a pleasure to read. Flicking through the pages, I absolutely love the photo of the matches on pg 27! The burned match even looks sad. Anyway this is turning into a massive comment so I'll leave it here. Really well done again!
haha :) Really glad you enjoyed what you saw and read! It's a little lengthy, a couple thousand words, thanks a lot for your feedback and for having a look @Claire
