Blog

Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Quick Quotes: David duChemin

"Poets, songwriters, painters, dancers, jazz pianists, comics, and countless others all have their own ways of getting the inner stuff out.  We have the photograph.  Not the camera.  The photograph.  The camera is merely the tool.  The photograph is the very expression of that inner thing bursting to get out.  How we make that photograph with the tools at our disposal, and how close it comes to expressing what we hope, determines how successful that image is."

And now you know why I just love David's images and especially his books.  The quote is taken from the introduction to his brand new book entitled, Photographically Speaking: A Deeper Look at Creating Stronger Images (Voices That Matter) ,which I just received.  An intro with that at its core.....reading the book has to be time well spent.  I haven't been disappointed by duChemin before and I am sure this time will be no different.  I will let you know!
