Vision Is Better, Ep.54

On the heels of hearing Ted Forbes (The Art of Photography podcast) say that nobody cares about our photography, I have some ideas about why beginning with that assumption is a... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.53

I just took delivery of the new edition of my first book, Within The Frame, and I’m dying to sign them a couple and give them away. Watch the episode to hear the story of how I got my book deal (spoiler: I took a risk) and find out how to win a signed copy of the book.

If you’re impatient and just... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.52

Join me this week as I show you a few examples of how I live with my work. Printing it is enough of a barrier for most people, let alone framing it all, and finding wall space. I’ve got a couple inexpensive ways I do that, and keep my work rotating through.

I mention two specific products from IKEA, here are the links:

Vision Is Better, Ep.51

Just back from spending 12 days off the coast of Baja, here’s a look at some of my images and a reminder of the importance of submission to the process. This is also the 7th birthday of Craft & Vision and this week there are great deals to be had, beginning with the release of our latest and last issue of PHOTOGRAPH Magazine. Issue... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.50

Join me as I discuss the making of, and post-production of one of my images from the recent trip to photograph the grizzlies in the British Columbia’s Khutzeymateen Inlet. If you’ve been curious about NiK Software’s Silver Efex Pro, I’ll give you a quick tour.

Vision Is Better, Ep.49

I have long been a fan of giving people prints when I travel. Often that means bringing them with me the next time I return, but sometimes we can do better. I used to use the Polaroid Pogo printer but we went our ways due to irreconcilable differences. But I just got a Fuji Instax Smart Phone printer and it’s got huge potential - especially as... more

Critique of our work, when coming from the right sources, can be invaluable. Here are three thoughts on receiving that critique in a way to is most helpful to your craft.

Vision Is Better, Ep.47

Giving a critique is not the same as mindless praise. Praise can be encouraging, but no matter how well intentioned it is, it’s not helpful as we learn and grow. If you want a head start at giving critique that is helpful, begin with these ideas.

Vision Is Better, Ep.46

I was talking to my friend Paul Nicklen recently about the path he’s taken to become a National Geographic photographer and he told a story that resonated with me, a reminder that what it takes is much more than an ability with a camera, it takes commitment and perseverance, among other things, and a willingness to chew on a rotting walrus flipper. Intrigued, if not a little... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.45

It doesn’t matter if you don’t like black and white (seriously, who doesn’t like black and white? Shame on you!) - looking at your images in black and white once in a while can give you new insights into your work, and the strength of your compositions. It can also force you to go back and look at old work which gives it a second chance at... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.44

This episode I talk about modes. Should you be using P, AV, TV, or M?

The episode was inspired by an article I read on Peta Pixel by Eric Kim here:http://petapixel.com/2016/04/18/favor...

Vision Is Better, Ep.43

I write a lot of books and do a lot of teaching, and there is no end of the books and tutorials and tips and tricks out there. And NONE of them will teach you to take this next step. Want to become a better photographer? At a certain point you need to abandon the shoulds and the ought-tos and the shortcuts and the manuals and go out there... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.42

Join me as I talk about how I got into humanitarian photography and what I think about working for free when you start out. It’s probably not what you think. I say go for it, as long as it’s on your terms. The world is too full of people expecting you to plug the holes in their crappy business models.

David duChemin is a photographer, author, adventurer, and entrepreneur. He’s... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.41

This one’s about vision and the way that executing on that vision - making it happen - leaves no room for looking over our shoulders at what other photographers are doing. Stop obsessing about other photographers are doing, what gigs they are getting, and what gear they are using. Then spend that energy on you. What are you going to do, and how are you going to do it? Also, there's... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.40

This one’s about seeing, receptivity, being open, and going in empty. It doesn’t sound sexy, but I promise - once you know how to focus and expose and are beginning to wrap your head around composition - this stuff is much more responsible for great photographs than your choice of gear.

David duChemin is a photographer, author, adventurer, and entrepreneur. He’s the best-selling author of Within The Frame, VisionMongers, Photographically Speaking and... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.39

Filmed way too close to the camera, this is the Gigantic Head episode in which I talk about my favourite camera bag (which isn’t a camera bag at all) and the other stuff like how I manage my SD cards, and the image files that go on them, and whether or not I use UV filters.

One thing I forgot to mention is that SD cards only have a brand label on one side... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.38

This week I indulge in a passionate rant about what it takes to be a so-called Professional Photographer. Join me as I discuss value and the need to serve an audience. Is it realistic to expect to make a living as a professional photographer? It is. But you better enjoy the struggle and you better be willing to become an entrepreneur because it’s so much more than just making photographs.

In this episode I mention... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.37

Join me as I discuss the need to know your camera so well you stop missing moments and have more attention to direct to your composition and creative process. In short: close your eyes and memorize the buttons and dials that are necessary for your work. If you’re screwing around with buttons and can’t remember what’s where, you’re missing moments.

In this episode I mention Sugru, here’s a link to the product on Amazon:... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.36

Join me as I talk about the why and the how of using those wide and ultra-wide angle lenses. Wide angle lenses are my favourite optics, by far, but they aren’t easy to use. There’s no substitute for just getting out there and playing with your wide angle lenses, but a few helpful hints on how to maximize the strengths of these lenses will get you off to a stronger start. 

Got questions? Leave them... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.35

Join me as I show you three features & techniques I love in Adobe Lightroom, one of which I just learned. I’ve been waiting for ages to be able to do paint away parts of a radial or graduated filter in Lightroom, now I can. Quickly visualize your spots, and what I do with the Tone Curve to prevent my plugged-up black or blown highlights from wrecking my prints.  

Got questions? Leave them in... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.34

This episode is a relatively quick one, a discussion of how I made a photograph of an Indian flute player in Jodhpur, India. Sorry it’s been so long since I posted one of these, I intended to do a few of them while I traveled and between the issues I’m (still) having with the focus tracking (it’s possessed) on the video camera, and the realization that I just don’t do multiple creative things well,... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.33

In early January I launched a 20-episode video resource to teach my vision-driven approach to editing and post-production in Lightroom. As part of the launch I wanted to give a chance for some Q&A, and some interaction. In this episode I talk (a bit of a ramble, really) about colour balance, using the adjustment brush and other dodge and burn tools with subtlety, and what makes a good B&W conversion.

Have questions about... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.32

In early January I launched a 20-episode video resource to teach my vision-driven approach to editing and post-production in Lightroom. As part of the launch I wanted to give a chance for some Q&A, and some interaction. Some of you submitted images for me to show you how I might treat them in the digital darkroom. This is the third of those, from photographer Ryan Jones.

Vision Is Better, Ep.29

I don’t believe there’s really such a thing as a “travel tripod”, but so many people ask me for my recommendation that I thought I’d give you something more helpful: a discussion of the considerations for choosing the right tripod to travel with. Spoiler alert: it’s all about knowing what you need it for and then making some compromises. Whatever you do, don’t let your experience or your photographs suffer because you were too cheap to buy something solid, or... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.28

I’m meant to be on assignment in Lesotho right now (January 04-22), the first part of a longer 2 month trip to Lesotho, South Africa, Kenya, Zanzibar, Rajasthan, and Istanbul. But I injured my back last week and am furiously trying to get healed up while re-scheduling flights, etc. In the mean time we’ve launched AFTER THE CAMERA on CraftAndVision.com and wanted to give you a glimpse into this resource while it’s still on sale (we’ll pull the plug on... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.27

The One about Filters for Landscape, Part Two.

Join me as I discuss the very basics of filter use for landscape photography. This is a very elementary discussion but I’m hoping, in conjunction with the conversation from Episode 26, that it’s helpful in getting you out there with some basic gear, and starting to experiment, which is where you’ll best learn this stuff anyways.

Here are the various pieces of gear I referred to in the last episode. The list... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.26

The One about Filters for Landscape, Part One.

Join me as I discuss the bits and pieces you’ll want if you want to use filters in your landscape photography. I found getting the right pieces for my kit a real challenge because this stuff is poorly explained on sites like B&H or Amazon because they assume you know what you need. Most of us don’t when we start out.

Here’s the pieces I refer to in the episode. The links are... more

Vision Is Better, Ep.25

Join me as I discuss timing and relationships within the frame and how they affect each other and can dramatically affect your compositions. There’s a lot to think about when you’re behind the camera, being more intentional about these two elements will make you a better photographer than any lens or camera can.

Vision Is Better, Ep.23

After a way-too long hiatus while travelling in Italy and not getting around to another episode, I’m back (with my apologies) and my answer to the question: how do you see more creatively. The answer, in a nutshell: more constraints. Give yourself some parameters, something for your creativity to push against. The more interesting the constraints, the more creative we get about working around those, the more interesting our work becomes.

Vision is Better, Ep.22

I’m in the first couple weeks of an almost 2 month trip through the UK and Italy. Join me on an undisclosed beach (because I have no idea exactly where I was at the time) in northwestern Ireland as I talk about the gear I chose to travel with, and which is better: prime lenses or zooms lenses.

Vision is Better, Ep.21

Join me as I discuss Auto-ISO. What is it, what are the pros and cons, and what are my suggestions about using it. Auto-ISO is a powerful tool, but like any tool, you have to know what it does well, how it works, and how to control it.

Vision is Better, Ep.20

In late September 2015 I sailed into British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest to photograph the Spirit Bears - a white variation of the black bear found only in this small, wild, beautiful part of the world. Join me on a short kayak ride in Kitimat at the end of the week as I talk about the key to my work - and to great photography: patience. I’ll also give you a quick first look at some of my... more

Vision is Better, Ep.17

On the heels of the rant in the last episode I decided to get a little more specific (some would say a little more helpful). If you want to create more engaging photographs then it’s gotta be a lot more than just wishing and hoping. I’d argue the whole craft of photography leads us to that goal. So these are just three ways I think you can begin making your images more interesting. Join me as I talk about creating... more

OK, I went off a little this time. If you’ll forgive my camera’s somewhat discretionary focus, join me as I talk about 2 things that can dramatically improve your photography: becoming pickier and becoming more personal.

Vision is Better, Ep.14

Photographers seem to love spending money. Often we justify our purchases with the hope that buying this stuff will make stronger photographs. Usually it doesn’t. But here’s three things you really do need to spend some money on. Next time you feel the gear lust coming on, consider one of these items instead - you’ll thank me later.
