Inspired by Darkness?

We received a number of questions / messages and even a recording about our last episode, Episode 193 »» Pulitzer Prize Photographs with Antonio M. Rosario, asking for further explanation about finding inspiration in these often dark, award-winning images. While we do not discuss this any further in this episode, you can expect a proper follow-up in the upcoming week. Thank you so much for chiming in! Stay tuned!

Mac was intrigued by the clever way Vancouver photographer, Ian McDonald, penned an article about making sense of your photography. We thought Ian’s article complimented one of Olaf Sztaba’s recent articles, ConfidenceA Roller-Coaster to Seeing(Intro), which we discussed back on episode 182. Inspired by Ian’s words, we took to the mics to discuss his article, the wonderful videos by Ted Forbes on his The Art of Photography YouTube channel and more!

We would love to hear your thoughts on the show! How do you approach your photography while making sense of your art?

Thanks to Ian, Ted and Olaf for the inspiration for this episode (links below). Also, make sure y’all check out the work from Mark Reierson who gave Mac an unofficial workshop experience this past weekend. *wink*

To all our listeners: while we may not always agree on these photography topics and our opinions do vary, the respectful way you choose to engage with us and other photographers / listeners by continuing the conversation and creating a wonderful sense of community in the process, is one of the many reasons why we love doing this show, so thank you all.

Episode 182 »» Confidence and Olaf’s Visual Risks

X This 

The latest Fuji camera has been announced and instead of discussing the details, we talk about an article written about the future of X cameras à la Olaf Sztaba. 

Godfather 

Our inspiration from our great friend of the show, Olaf, continues as we discuss the meaning behind a recent blog post on confidence in photography. Whether you are new to photography or have been around for a long time, the article is worth the read (and this show is worth a listen). Please join us as we take to the mics to discuss taking visual risks, finding our confidence and more! Thanks to Olaf for the articles and inspiring this conversation. If you haven’t checked out his work, please do so as you won’t be disappointed!

The Great Return  | #changetheconversation

It’s been just over a year and we were finally able to bring back our pal and good friend to the show, incredible photographer, Olaf Sztaba! He penned a couple of great articles on his thoughts on the social media/photo communities that had some scratching their heads about their own involvement in the online photo industry. Consider it a serendipitous moment if you will, as Mac and I were discussing the very same thing off the air, so we knew Olaf was meant to appear on this episode! Please join us as we take the mics to discuss these very topics and also find out what Olaf is up to today.

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show and the articles if you’ve had the change to read them. Has your online involvement ever impacted your own process of making images? We would love to hear about it – the good and the bad, if any. You can find us at Bookface or Twitter! Of course, you can subscribe for free at iTunes or check us out at Stitcher.

Huge thanks to Olaf for coming back on the show! Please make sure to check out his work and the two articles (links at the bottom of the post).

Thanks for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!
