That quote come directly from David duChemin's book "Vision Mongers" which is the book I am currently reading.
According to David duChemin, vision, passion, and a broad perspective is the foundation of photography/photography business, and that you cannot learn in school.
I have neglected my blog for the past couple of days but I have not neglected my art. I have continued to take pictures every day, I continue to read my D-700 users manual (have you met anyone who enjoys reading the users manual? I do!) and I continue to study the work of other photographers. Time is such a precious commodity. It's really hard to come by. It seems like I'm burning the candle at both ends and sometimes something has to give and the last couple of days it's been the posting on this blog. I've also missed checking my friends blogs and commenting on theirs. I will catch up soon.
This is Baby Chloe. We did a studio session last night(D219). She is 3 weeks old and such a delight. I kept it nice and warm in the studio and she slept for 2 hours! This baby was a delight.
To see more from this session click on the picture it will take you to my flickr. There are several more there.
My favorite lens to use for this shoot was the 50mm, Nikon D-700 of coarse. 2 studio lights and one reflector
D-218, Kristen is from a Senior Shoot we did on Thursday. We had a blast and she was so much fun to photograph.

My favorite lens to use for this session was the 70-200 mm Nikon D-700 of coarse, flash at -1 1/3
