Here is a great book by David duChemin. I just got mine a few days ago and after reading just the first few pages I can tell that this book can really change my vision on how I approach my photography. It’s not a book that discusses technical aspect of photography, this one focusses on inspiration, it digs deep into your inner soul so you can have a better vision. Well, that’s just me. if you are looking for a book that will teach you the basics of photography like aperture or shutter speeds, this is not the book for you.
Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic VisionBy David duChemin
Within the Frame is a book about finding and expressing your photographic vision, specifically where people, places, and cultures are concerned. A personal book full of real-world wisdom and incredible images, author David duChemin (of pixelatedimage.com) shows you both the how and the why of finding, chasing, and expressing your vision with a camera to your eye. Vision leads to passion, and passion is a cornerstone of great photography. With it, photographs draw the eye in and create an emotional experience. Without it, a photograph is often not worth—and can’t capture—a viewer’s attention.
Both instructional and inspirational, Within the Frame helps you on your photographic journey to make better images of the places and people you love, whether they are around the world or in your own backyard. duChemin covers how to tell stories, and the technology and tools we have at our disposal in order to tell those narratives. Most importantly, he stresses the crucial theme of vision when it comes to photographing people, places, and cultures—and he helps you cultivate and find your own vision, and then fit it within the frame.
