When I started this blog a mere month or so ago it was because I have a love of photography and I wanted to personally challenge myself to get out, shoot, share and learn. What’s become abundantly clear to me is that there is a wonderful community of photographers (both casual & serious) out there who love this medium and are eager to share their photographs, stories, experiences and offer lots of encouragement to newbies like me. I visit many photoblogs and am blown away by the creativity and beauty of the work out there.
I love to read and long before I started blogging I was reading books on photography, both technical and “art” books. As you and I both know these can get expensive. One day I came across a site called Craft & Vision whose whole raison d’etre is to provide “exceptional photography education at irresistible prices” through their ebooks. And that they do. At $5.00 an ebook you have to agree that’s irresistible. I’ve read many of their ebooks (not all….yet) and I’ve enjoyed everyone and can honestly say have learned from each book I’ve read.
The newest book in the Craft & Vision library is A Deeper Frame. Creating Deeper Photographs & More Engaging Images by David duChemin. While this ebook is relatively short, only 23 pages, it’s packed with inspiring imagery and a compelling narrative by David.
David duChemin is a world & humanitarian photographer, best-selling author, and international workshop leader. If you haven’t checked out his blog yet please do so at http://www.pixelatedimage.com . David is a passionate photographer and writer and I have had the pleasure of reading many of his books. As a matter of fact I have his “Venice, A Monograph” ebook loaded onto my iPad and ready to go on my trip toItaly next month.
Ok…back to the task at hand. In his latest endeavour David takes the reader on a journey of exploration on how to express their photographic vision. This book isn’t trying to teach you the technical how to of creating depth in your photographs although there is a little bit of that but rather its trying to help the reader understand emotional depth. Creating depth in a photograph whether it’s through perspective, composition or the type of lens you use, will elicit a certain emotional response from the viewer.
“A Deeper Frame outlines seven ways that we can create more engaging images through the re-creation of a sense of depth in the flattened image to create photographs that feel immersive and invite a reader of that photograph to not merely look at the photograph but into or through the photograph.”
A Deeper Frame is available now as a downloadable PDF for just $5USD.
