15 Apr 2014 The Visual Imagination with David duChemin (Podcast 417)
Today I welcome back my friend and regular guest, David duChemin, for a conversation about his latest Craft & Vision eBook, The Visual Imagination – Ideas & Techniques for Creative Photographic Expression.

While reading David’s new book, there were a number of times when lightbulbs came on, and I found myself wanting to run outside with my camera and try something new.
I’ve been doing some of the techniques that David introduces in The Visual Imagination myself for a number of years now, but I realised that although I’d been breaking my traditional rules, in some cases I’d been breaking them in the same way every time. I had inadvertently already formed my own set of new rules and was being bound by them. It’s so important to keep asking ourselves “what if?” even if we’re already doing something that we started with a “what if?”.
This book doesn’t try to get you to throw away your current photography style or tape up your focus ring. It just gives you permission to think out of the box a little, and that is something that can be liberating and give us beautiful results, and ultimately even help us to become better photographers.
Give it a try, and I think you’ll enjoy your results.
