In our ongoing series of interviews with Lightroom users, Lightroom News was delighted to have ‘Within The Frame’ author David duChemin take our questions as he ventured off on yet another trip.
Hi David, thanks for joining us on Lightroom News. Those that know you here are probably most familiar with your excellent book “Within The Frame”. To kick off, can you give us a little background to your photography and how it eventually lead to the book?
Thanks for having me! I think at heart I’m a communicator, so I approach photography as an act of expression. But it took me 20 years to get to that point, like I was learning a language and suddenly understood that that language could be used to tell the stories I was most passionate at telling. It lead to the book because I saw a vacuum in the teachings of photography about why we use photography as an art form and not just how we do so. And then this crazy “hey, what if I write a book?” thing kind of spiraled out of control and here we are.
