David Noton The Vision Summary

David Noton The Vision: The Art of Photography from Idea to Exposure by David Noton

David Noton: The Vision analyses, in a detailed and logical progression, the ways in which a successful photograph comes to be, from the formation of an idea to the moment of exposure.

David Noton: The Vision explains how a photographer can translate an idea into reality by using their vision, imagination and understanding. This focus on vision means that the actual cameras and hardware used are not important. Detailed diagrams alongside the finished photograph make it easy to see how the shot was achieved. The technical information and advice is delivered with David's characteristic wit and charm and is accompanied by beautiful images and context from David's travels around the globe. This makes the book both a useful and entertaining read.

Each chapter is interspersed with personal and witty diary entries from David's travels along with photo essays that breakdown how the striking photographs were achieved. David begins by exploring how photographers come up with those initial ideas for creating the perfect photograph: how to find inspiration and be imaginative. He then focuses on finding the best location, thinking about composition, waiting for the right light, considering colour from monochromatic to full colour, and finally, finishing with The Moment: analysing when that Decisive Moment is.
