About 2 weeks ago I came across a fantastic book titled “Photographically Speaking”, and it has played a huge part in changing the way I look at my photos and the way I think about my framing when approaching a scene. The author of the book is the extraordinary photographer David duChemin, and when I continued to search through his work and writings it was like a never ending fountain of knowledge and inspiration. He approaches his photos with such a strong personal vision and seems to have such a distinct reason for each element in his scenes. With his teachings he focuses heavily on photographic vision and the story telling aspect of the art, so its no wonder that his photos contain such stories with depth and dimension.
I love his creative comps with interesting use of blur and wide angle mixes. Its refreshing to see a pro photographer that is out there continuing to experiment in creativity, and because of it continues to produce wonderfully unique scenes.
He is truly an outstanding creative and Im excited to either remind or introduce you to his work and teachings.
