Russian photographer Viktor Pinchuk presents textbook in Simferopol, Crimea

Tuesday, December 20, 2022

Russian Wikinews attended a December 8 presentation by Russian traveler and photographer Viktor Pinchuk at the Ilya Selvinsky Museum in Simferopol, Crimea of his textbook “Basics of fine-art photography”, published on English and Russian Wikibooks.

During the speech, Pinchuk took questions from the audience about the textbook, which includes 35 chapters blending instruction and examples and eleven photo exhibitions taken from June 2005 to July 2014. They include photos taken from his extensive travels whilst on ‘hobo tours’, as discussed in a previous lecture.

The practical guide, which includes 35 training pages and 12 optional (where aspects of the author’s creativity are described), has two versions — Russian and English; the material is posted on the international website Wikibooks.

My textbook differs from previously published tutorials created by professionals in this field, first of all by simplicity of execution: not replete with a large number of special terms. Providing a modern user (who hates long texts) with a minimum of information about genres, styles and directions of photography, the book is illustratively supplemented by a large number of examples, allowing [one] to [be] visually [familiarized] with each section.
