Two eBooks about Creating More Visually Compelling Photographs

This resource bundle includes two of David duChemin’s best-selling downloadable PDF eBooks, Chasing the Look and Drawing the Eye.

Chasing the Look outlines how to make intentional choices about the use of your gear and the settings on your camera based on their aesthetic effect. It begins to answer the question we all ask at some point while looking at the images of others: “Why don't my photographs don’t look like that?”  While part of that question is answered simply in that we all have different visions—and therefore different images—part of it must also be that we are not paying enough attention to the look each decision brings to the final image. David walks you through those elements and encourages you to begin thinking aesthetically, not merely technically.

Drawing The Eye changes the way you look at your craft by teaching you how to understand and use the ways in which the eye reads a photograph in order to create more powerful images. Broken into four parts, Drawing The Eye looks at this concept of visual mass (or visual pull) both in camera and in post-processing, and then through creative exercises related to each of these sections.

David opens up a real-world discussion about making images that are more powerful because they’re made with a fuller understanding of where the eye moves in an image, and how that understanding can change the way you shoot and process your images.
