Photo a Day Project

Cousens1

David Cousens will return for the April program to talk about his “Photo a Day Project.  
A fundamental challenge confronting photographers in the digital age is image selection and being able to honestly evaluate the quality of one's work in real time.


In recent years, David Couzens has been advocating his "Photo a Day Project" to photographers of all skill levels as a means of establishing self-discipline, honing one's photography skills, and developing a sense of storytelling through photography. The premise here is to bring into focus one's travel experience by identifying a single image (from maybe hundreds captured on a single day) as the sole summary of the day's journey. He has done this on several 20-day trips and finds the exercise most challenging, rewarding, and educational.

Through examples, he will outline the process and address issues such as image selection and variety, composition, and most importantly the notion of telling a story.


Couzens2

Photographer, writer, composer, and musician David Couzens has traveled to more than 35 countries as well as to the majority of American states and Canadian provinces.


His tenth book of photographs in his Images of the World series, is Images of England and Wales. His previous books, Images of Rajasthan, Images of Ireland, Images of Guatemala, Images of the Caucasus, Images of Hungary and the Czech Republic, Images of Southwest China, Images of Newfoundland, Images of Turkey, and Images of Albania, along with their companion DVDs, were released starting in 2008 as part of an ongoing series of multimedia projects.

He has also published Images of the Taj Mahal, Images of the West, and People: Images of the World as part of a large-format portfolio series. He regularly presents programs of his photography and original music throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
