"An Evening with David Noton"
|Last Friday evening I was one of the lucky ones to attend an evening with David at his local pub where he entertained photographers and those who prefer to leave the picture taking to their partners. |
Of course we were all enchanted by his superb images, but what was most captivating was the unique style with which he enabled us to comprehend the thinking behind his work.
It was because he chose not to discuss camera technique but to explain the planning and pre-visualising necessary for each image that we were treated to an insight which inspired us to get out there with our cameras.
Amongst the many observations he made, David encouraged us all to join him in embracing the many advantages of digital imaging but to "think film" at the taking stage. To get it right in the camera and to take far fewer shots.
As of last Friday, my new mantra for photography is -
PLAN MORE, TAKE LESS
- and reduce time at the computer as a result.
DON'T MISS OUT
If you have not had the opportunity to meet David or to attend one of his very popular workshops, his superb Books, DVDs and BLOGS are equally thought provoking and stimulating.
