The Heart of the Photograph with David duChemin

Event info

Illustrated by inspiring photographs from around the world, this conversation with David duChemin explores ten powerful ideas about the creation of more engaging photographs. David’s presentation will discuss techniques and ways of thinking about the creation of images designed to engage human imagination and emotion, including questions of vision and intent, the use of space and time, the creation of depth, and the use of point of view. David will also discuss mood and mystery, storytelling, and what this all means for our choices of moments as well as more practical considerations, like the more creative use of exposure tools, composition, and more. This will be a compelling lecture with (and about) heart.
