Vision is Better II

Vision is Better II – Free the Mind, Free the Camera. Again. by David duChemin was released today and follows the process and thoughts of a professional travel/landscape photographer.

It follows his approach on business, thought process on location, equipment considerations, a near deadly fall he took while on assignment and much more.

We create our art in the midst of an odd industry trying desperately to sell us new gear – and we rely on this gear, to a greater or lesser degree to do what we do.

But relying on it, and being distracted by it are not the same thing. In the end most of us simply want to achieve basic competence, to get to the point where the camera no longer stands in the way of what does matter – the reason we want to make a photograph and the way in which we express that reason through the unique visual language of the medium.

duChemin says, “This world needs stronger, more honest photographs that are true to their creators. Art is meant to be a gift; if the best the world can do is praise the sharpness, or technical merits of a photograph, we’ve failed to bring a gift. It’s the photographic equivalent of giving perfectly crocheted socks to an 8-year old for Christmas.”
