by David duChemin

Within the Frame is a book about finding and expressing your photographic vision, specifically where people, places, and cultures are concerned. A personal book full of real-world wisdom and incredible images, author David duChemin (of pixelatedimage.com) shows you both the how and the why of finding, chasing, and expressing your vision with a camera to your eye. Vision leads to passion, and passion is a cornerstone of great photography. With it, photographs draw the eye in and create an emotional experience. Without it, a photograph is often not worth—and can’t capture—a viewer’s attention.

Both instructional and inspirational, Within the Frame helps you on your photographic journey to make better images of the places and people you love, whether they are around the world or in your own backyard. duChemin covers how to tell stories, and the technology and tools we have at our disposal in order to tell those narratives. Most importantly, he stresses the crucial theme of vision when it comes to photographing people, places, and cultures—and he helps you cultivate and find your own vision, and then fit it within the frame.

    When I finally got my copy and I opened it, I was shocked. I had already read most of the text before, but to see the text illustrated with some of the most beautiful images I have ever seen, was too much for me. For some strange reason I became emotional, to the point that my eyes actually teared up. This is the book I have been waiting for since before I ever met David. I have been looking for a book that addressed, not just how to shoot the image, buy why do I shoot it a certain way. The how was a question I had for years, but it was always in context of larger questions. “How do I make my viewer feel the vastness or the intimacy of a scene?” “How do I convey the vulnerability of a child?” The how needed to be more than, “How do I get the shallow Depth of field?” The question I was looking for was, “How do I get it and why do I need it?” The how for me has always been embedded into the why. This is the book, had it been written many years back, could have made life as a photographer a lot easier. Hear me when I say; this is the most helpful book for the traveling photographer to date. Bar none!
