Illustrated by inspiring photographs from around the world, The Heart of the Photograph Virtual Lecture with David duChemin is a 90-minute conversation (including Q&A time) exploring ten powerful ideas about the creation of more engaging photographs. This webinar 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 that your club will remember for a long time.

I highly recommend this inspiring and instructional presentation. David is an excellent teacher/motivator. He goes beyond the “buttons and dials” to talk about the things that really lie at the “Heart of the Photograph.” David gave this presentation to members of the West Shore Photography Club (Mechanicsburg, PA) and the Frederick Camera Clique (Frederick, MD) on Monday, December 7. Since the presentation, my Inbox has been flooded with appreciative comments from club members. Dennis Baker, President, WSPC.
