Focus on Voice and Vision to Create Impactful Photographs
We live in a gear-obsessed world as photographers, with new lenses and cameras being touted as the magic solutions to improve our photography. While gear does play a role in helping us get the photographs we envision, there's so much more that goes into making quality, personally-meaningful photographs that are uniquely ours.
Today's guest on the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen Podcast, David duChemin, is a world & humanitarian assignment photographer, best-selling author, digital publisher, podcaster, and international workshop leader based in Vancouver Island, Canada. David refers to himself as a voice for human creativity in an industry that dwells too much on the technical.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- David's journey as a photographer.
- David's inspiring books that helped me as a photographer (these are affiliate links that help the show).
- Defining voice and vision in photography and their importance in improving as a photographer.
- Creativity and tips for improving creativity as photographers.
- Finding inspiration as photographers.
- And a lot more!
