It's not quite the same as being present at the birth of a baby, but it's close. Two and a half years ago, my friend Suzanne Merritt and I were taking a "joy ride" across the country (picture "Thelma and Louise" without Brad Pitt ... or the giant leap).
Suzanne is one of the most creative people I know and an amazing photographer. As usual, we were talking about possible projects when I suggested that she write a short guide for photographers introducing them to her "Eight Patterns of Beauty." I had a small flip-book in mind but in her own inimitable way, she turned it into an incredible work of art, and I am proud to have played a small role in its birth.
If you're a photographer, at any level, I highly recommend that you jump on this opportunity to buy her book ... available from iBookstore for iPads. (Search iTunes bookstore for Suzanne R. Merritt - Flow-Tography, Better Photos Now)
Here's a trailer which will give you a delightful taste of her and what you'll find in her book (and she did every aspect of this book ... from the photography to the development of the Eight Patterns of Beauty, to the drawings and writings, and making this very clever trailer ... she is amazing!):
