PS: As you all might expect this will be a very lengthy blog unlike my usual photoblog type posts. Read at your own risk and leisure.

As I indicated in one of my blog post late last week, am here presenting you my customary “2011 – a year that was” blog post just like the last years “2010 – a year in the journey“.  Just like 2010, 2011 also saw a lot of changes to my portfolio and the type of shoots that i did and the type of knowledge i gained with regard to the type of photography i do. I did quite a lot of travel and landscape stuff and reasonably less wildlife photography but the entire year was planned and dedicated to videos and timelapses.

Craft&Vision | A Deeper Frame | eBook Review



Craft & Vision A Deeper Frame



After almost close to 6 months of hibernation from the e-book world David Du Chemin is back with a beautiful “Craft&Vision” ebook called – “A DEEPER FRAME“. David has been the man behind the mantra – “gear is good vision is better” – and does utilize it in a right way to communicate through easily affordable ebooks and blog posts to motivate people to chase vision than trail in the megapixel race.

In the new book David talks about creating an intimacy in the image and bringing in the viewers attraction into ones images using the concept of depth. A deeper frame is a very well structured book categorizing various aspects of showcasing depth in an image. It may be using the field of view or composition or use of color or use of emotions or in many ways times the use of light whilst framing a subject. Some of the concepts that David talks about in the book are something which are used by many artists and  painters in their art work. What makes this book really worth a grab is the ready to refer type illustrations for each of the 7 techniques mentioned in the book as well as the book in itself is a very small with 23 wide spread pages making it a quick ready and easy to adopt.
