The Inspired Eye 3 By David duChemin – eBook Review
The Inspired Eye 3 – Notes on Creativity for Photographers by David duChemin
You know what I like about David duChemin besides him being a brilliant photographer? The man can write. In his newest release, The Inspired Eye 3, it feels like duChemin is giving you a private tutorial on how to embrace your strengths, fine tune your imagination and trust your process to lead you to your own creative style.
“Our measure of talent, or our feeling about the lack of it, are far less influencial in our own creative process than how hard we work.”
This is not a book that will lead you to technical proficiency, it’s a book about your creativity process. Regardless of the equipment you use, if you can make a good exposure and focus the camera the rest depends on the choices you make and the way you want to express yourself as an artist.
If you want to create great photographs, gear and technique won’t get you there. The continual focus on gear at the expense of creativity is why so many who love this craft become frustrated. After all, a camera, for all the bells and whistles, is just a box with a hole in it. Add a lens and there’s little else. Spend too much time on the peripherals – gear and technique – without tending to the core, and we risk ending up really proficient at creating photographs that are uninspired and uninspiring. If you have any interest in expressing yourself and creating beauty, if you’re more than just a camera-collector but a photographer, then creativity is your core asset. Investing in that asset, and understanding how it works, is key.
The Inspired Eye, Volume 3, is the third and final installment in the Inspired Eye series, an eBook full of discussion about the way we think and create – it’s about what happens before and during the time the camera comes to our eye and the shutter is pressed. It’s about how we deal with constraints, challenges, and inspiration; it’s about how we light and feed the fire of creativity.
