Episode 3 ~ Mixed Bag of Nuts

Our Mixed Bag of Nuts

We appreciate y’all listening to our first two podcasts and most definitely enjoy the feedback (critique?). Please keep it coming. 

Speaking of feedback … 

Back to Episode 2

We certainly received a bit of feedback over this episode. Some folks did not agree with us (and that’s ok!). We briefly revisit critique in photography.

Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk 2011 

Mac did not officially attend the walk this year as previously planned, but he did choose to be a rebel and crash the party with his 10 year old son. Two Sokulski chaps armed with cameras on the loose, tearing up Whyte Avenue with other photographers. At the end of the day, the Sokulski men had a great day, hanging out and documenting the world around them through their lenses. Isn’t this what photography is really all about?

A Peek Into My Camera Bag

This is where we may or may not have rambled a bit (meh, it happens!). While we are going to have a proper full podcast of delicious gear chat for gearheads down the road, Mac turned the tables on me and asked me a few questions about my gear. 

Bits n’ Bites

Now it’s time to shine the bright light on you! If you participated in the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk, in which city and how did it go? Tell us about it! 

Thanks for listening!

Cheers, y’all!

Episode 2 ~ Critiquing Your Images

Tuning In

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for listening to our first podcast, Episode 1 – Introductions. Like Mac had mentioned, it’s a little rough around the edges, but we strive to improve with every show and we hope you keep tuning in for more.

Are your images on the internet for all to see? How do you feel about someone critiquing your images? Do you prefer a drive by, “lovely shot!”, or are you more part of the ever fading constructive criticism crowd? We discuss just this and more in episode #2!

What Is Critique? 

Critique is a method of disciplined, systematic analysis of a written or oral discourse. Critique is commonly understood as fault finding and negative judgment, but it can also involve merit recognition, and in the philosophical tradition it also means a methodical practice of doubt.

What are some of the most helpful critiques you have received on a photo? Have you received negative feedback? How did you handle it? Feel free to tell us in comments below. Be sure to link us your sites / blog / Flickr streams and if possible, the image itself! You know we want to take a peek! If you have anything else to say, here is the place to do it as well!

Cheers, y’all!
