ETA: This was supposed to go out yesterday, so apologies to all the feed readers out there…
As most of you already know, I am a huge fan of esoteric topical content that challenges both the writer and the reader in new directions. While I like to think that I’ve done my fair share of challenging people to think beyond their immediate “vision” with their cameras and compositions, there are always those who just leave me in the dust, and Mr. David DuChemin is no exception. I find that he is always a brilliant source of inspiration, so when I read his blog, I find myself hanging on almost every word! When new releases come out from Craft & Vision, the first thing I do is check the author. There’s been some good stuff there too, even from people I would consider colleagues, and perhaps friends. But when David puts out a new eBook, it’s become part and parcel for me to just not even look at the title – I click and buy! That’s how confidant I am that he will deliver quality both in photography and vision from his insights.
After his mishap in Italy, David certainly has had some time to go introspective, and while the mishap was not good, his latest insights are among the best I’ve read from him. No joke. I’m not just blowing sunshine, this is really quality work, that makes me re-think even my entire foundation. His latest eBook “A Deeper Frame” brings new insights on composition to me. I’d never thought about bringing together depth of field, with depth of color, and depth of tone. The included photos for his book are so jaw-dropping and perfect counter points to the text, I am just blown away that these are going for a mere $5!
The photography, the content, hell, even the layout is just superb! Take a look:
As you can see – just stunning. Even for the $5, it’s no surprise that these are the hottest items available today! I’ve found inspiration aplenty in literally every book of his (and my entire library is now filled with them on my iPad!). I keep encouraging him to write more because what he gives back in these is just stunning! To really cap things off, he’s also offering discounts! Save 20% through the 2nd, if you use a discount code (DEEP4) in your checkout box. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy today!
Thanks to David for all you’ve done for the photography community, both through your classes and these eBooks. I know to you they may not seem like much, but to so many of us, they are sheer inspiration! For everyone else, if you get an eBook, do also take the time to pick up the RSS feed for his blog – another brilliant source of inspiration (and that one is free!).
