  6. Frankie Sun says:

    Hey man, I really like your channel and enjoy your experience so much. I’m a graphic designer from China and would like to share with your why they force you to print 48 pages in total, It because the binding book has to be done with A multiple of 4. Hope you like my comment and very happy to speak with you at some point, cheers!

    Very useful guide. Thanks Eduardo 👍

  8. Andrew Criswell says:

    Very informative. Which zine format on Awesome Merchandise did you use, A4 Mono Zine? Shipping to where I live in Bangkok is free but I wonder how long It would take.

    Hey Edquardo , thanks for the video. i have been doing the same thing with my pictures ( didgital and film ) using another miduim which is Instagram stories. what do you thinck about that ?

  15. robertoacevesdiaz says:

    Me gustó mucho tu video, Ed. En particular la parte de cómo organizar el contenido. Me encantó cómo vas guiando al espectador mediante las fotos, usar primero byn, después color, tamaños, composición dentro de la página. Coincido que eso es algo que la persona logra percibir como organizado, con un ritmo y no sólo un bulto de imágenes. ¡Felicitaciones!

  22. Cess Frias says:

    Vi este vídeo como una clase magistral, Gracias por compartir y por tanta inspiración. Bonito ver a Frann en tus vídeos <3

  23. Gaston Welisch says:

    The black & white xpan subway pages were really good and surprising.
    This kind of layout would make a great zine/book on its own.

  24. Alberto García says:

    Nice video. What kind of paper did you use con the photobooks?

  25. waynedobie says:

  28. Jan Jaap Holdijk says:

    Really helpful video Ed, thanks! And especially interesting to me, since I work at an online printing company (don’t want to hijack your comments for advertising, but we do the entire process for things like this within 3 working days 😉). About time to use that employee discount!

  29. spirou55 says:

    Wow, i admire you guys so much. Keep making videos!

  30. Yes Modo says:

    This is brilliant timing after checking out the MCA Zine Fair in Sydney today..great viewing

  31. Rui Esteves says:

    If you're searching for a legally free for commercial use software to produce your Zines or books, Try Scribus.

    Easy timestamps for y'all:

    00:29 Have a theme
    03:05 Shoot, develop, scan
    05:53 Organize your files
    11:04 Make a PDF
    13:12 Send it to print

  33. Hujinn - Instagram says:

    Awesome stuff 👏🏻

    I want to ask you one question about Instagram. What do you think about accounts of people which use white frames on all their photos. Is it looks stylish for you?

  34. John Kraemer says:

    Very nice overview! Your zines look great! Thank you for sharing!

  35. Jazuajfr says:

    Excelente vídeo.
    Desde éste vídeo me suscribo. ¡Gracias por compartir esto!

  36. Emiliavg Villegas says:

    Gracias Eduardo, súper lindo tu video. Se lo recomendé a un amigo que sí hace foto con película y que se sentirá muy motivado por tan cool video. Te sigo.

  37. No Somos Amigos says:

    Excelente video, felicitaciones Eduardo.

  38. Domenico Pescosolido says:

    Very interesting video, I have just a question how do you scan the xpan? I have an xpan too but I'm not completly happy of my xpan scans.

  40. Chris and Sohee says:

    Cool Video, Keep up the good work!

  41. olivier chateau says:

    Excellent inspiring bideo on your creatuve workflow. Got me thinking on how to present my body of work

  42. MickMod says:

    Hello, when you choose pages on Awesome Merch are they double sided inside and one sided on the outer pages? So for example if you choose 24 pages you send 46 pages of pdf?

  43. Jean Cortés says:

    ¿Has pensado en usar LaTeX para hacer tus zines?

  44. Víctor Swasky says:

    Hello!!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Do you mind to tell me how you have recorded sound? Because your camera can not use a microphone, or am I wrong?

  45. Kos 291 says:

    Are you a trust fund kid or something? Selling a lot of books is never a bad thing, even photographers need to eat and pay bills too (and of course those expensive gears). Being popular doesn't mean you're a sell out, it means people actually appreciate your photos and your skill. Also it's a honest job and income.

  46. Thomas Boussu says:

    looks cheep

  47. Andres Duran says:

    Very helpful video! I’ve been wanting to make a travel book for my trip to San Francisco and this was so informative. I had to show support by buying both zines, can’t wait to get them in hand 🙏🏽

  48. says:

    great video! I subscribe!

  49. Aye Run says:

    Straight and to the point 👍🏽

  50. zapallalla says:

    That is AP tank, not Paterson 🙂 great channel, subbed!

  51. Drifting Dwarf says:

    Love your genuine love of what you're doing. Both of you. Thank you and I wish for great things for you two.

  52. Drifting Dwarf says:

    Ed, what's your favorite focal length? Would love to see a video on this maybe talk about what's your favorite focal length and lenses and when do you use or like to use them for and your sample images and maybe a day with you shooting with that. Thanks!

  53. BackRoad Biker Adventures says:

    Outstanding job in very informative. Thank you so much

  54. Bojoura Stolz says:

    Wow! Thanks Eduardo. Loved the info in this video. Impressed by your work…and I will def make a zine now. Not with photography…but still…Thank you!

  55. jazzoolazz says:

    Thank you for the zine education!!! You and Fran are so funny

  56. Andriy Kryvtsun says:

    Nice video! Thanks! But couldn't understand why did you switch from bw to color and back in one book? What is an idea?

  57. Andriy Kryvtsun says:

    What do you think about Lightroom Book module? Is it good for zine creation?

  58. Benjamin Fargen says:


  59. John Wesolowski says:

    I want to thank you and your wife in reminding me to do a spell check. I'm about to print my proof zine tomorrow and there was a spelling error. 35wwwmm camera would look silly no?

  60. MrBusytimmy says:

    13:10 😂😂😂

  61. Caroline Aro says:


  62. T says:

    Can you please do a tutorial on how you post your panoramic photos from your xpan onto Instagram? Thank you

  63. m j says:

    This was lame and misleading title. You didn't show "HOW".

  64. Vené Unsweetened says:

    This is so good. I'm watching it twice, maybe more. This is like the masters class of zine making.

  65. Jeannie says:

    Absolutely no information on creating a PDF. Actually, not very helpful at all. Anyone can say, "Do this" and that's it.

  66. chronicfish says:

    aaaahhh .. I love that I just found your channel! I didn't even know you had one. Thank you for this was extremely useful as well as inspiring, as I was looking into creating a zine in the near future. (btw , I love Fran's channel /art ) 🙂

  67. Skitterkins says:


  68. Frank Jones says:

    Does a zine need to be strictly film? or can i use a dslr??

  69. Ken Ng says:

    do you need model releases for the people in your zine?

  70. Juan Alvarez says:

    Let's say that you're a street photographer or you're photographing a political rally, how much privacy does the subjects in the photo have? Does an individual, whom I photograph, have to sign a release form? Have you ever created a zine that came back to bite you in the rear because someone wants to sue you?

  71. shan Sait says:

    Your an amazing photographer

  72. olga Irizarry says:

    oye! ahora que estas en USA. todavia tienes a la venta tu zine?

  73. Jessica Denham says:

    Do you have to have the subjects in your photos zine a contract?

  74. Nic Flynn ニック フリン says:

    I am also planning on making something with my Japan photos 🙂

  75. elpeejbeats says:

    so useful thank you!

  76. Leonardo Vicario says:

    Nice video. Tnks for the tips.
    I have a question about selling pictures with strangers face on it. Is it legal or you need always ask for permission?

  77. Lownds_82 says:

    This is great, what do you feel about using a digital style modern camera like a Canon Rebel for example?

  78. Haylie R. Wilson says:

    This is done really well. Years of being uninspired, this explained so much
