Today (19 April 2014) I had the most fun I’ve enjoyed with my camera in a long time. I broke “rules” gleefully and amazed myself more than once. I played in the way that children do – for no reason and every reason, with play itself the object. The inspiration for all this play and experimentation was that I had just read a new eBook, The Visual Imagination, by one of my favorite photographic authors, David duChemin.
I have read a lot of David’s work, and I love that he cares about vision and expression above all and doesn’t give a hoot what kind of gear you use. To my way of thinking, he has his priorities straight. :) A link to the eBook, in case you are interested (I have no affiliation and do not receive anything if you decide to buy a book). (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/22, 0.6 min., ISO 100, open shade with some backlight, handheld, camera moved intentionally during exposure, no crop and bare minimum of post-processing)
Dedicated to David duChemin, an inspirational photographer who has his priorities straight: vision and creativity are more important than camera gear.
