Presentation on Photographic Vision

Recently, I had the opportunity to present a talk to the North Haven Camera Club. Everyone was very nice and interested in what I had to say. Here are a few takeaways from my talk:

Artists who are Sources of Inspiration:

David duChemin: vision moves you to pick up camera, determines what you look at, determines what you see, determines how/why you shoot, finding & expressing vision is a journey. Take time to reflect: list what you love in general, then be specific, then more specific & drill down deep …look at your photos do they reflect your vision?

Alain Birot:

  • one can be inspired w/o being creative
  • one can be both w/o a vision
  • one can have a vision w/o a style
  • to be meaningful, a vision needs to be expressed  through a personal style
