Update, The book has now been published and is selling at #1 in Amazon’s Travel/Pictorial seller’s list. Unfortunately the image, as is now published, turned out to have been oversaturated, especially the reds. I should have insisted on the conversion of my colorspace used in my printer/paper to National Geographic’s printers colorspace. Oh well, live and learn. And… holy crap! It is pretty damn cool to see one of my images in print in such a well respected National Geographic publication. I think my dad, who taught me basic photography and darkroom practices, would be proud since he was a huge fan of National Geographic.
By the way the entire book is pretty darn cool and very well done, I definitely recommend buying it.
I’ve been honored by National Geographic by selecting one of my images to be published as a two page spread in their upcoming book Places of a Lifetime . It should be available in late October, but Amazon is now accepting preorders.
