    10 / The Image Gap

    This episode we’re talking about the IMAGE GAP, and it’s many forms. Sometimes it’s the gap between your skills and your ambition. Sometimes it’s the gap between reality and photography. Often it’s the gap bap between the world you see on social media, and the world we really live in. How do we recognise the gaps, and how do we overcome them?

    09 / Pointlessly Lovely

    This week David Norris joins us over the wire to talk about the deeper meaning of art in photography, and capturing with a conceptual foundation. Taking photography beyond the lovely and into the expressive.

    We start the discussion in Paris, where an annual Foto Fest takes place each winter, as well as a very prestigious “Review” run by a group called LENS CULTURE.

    08 / Inclusive Frame of Mind

    "Inclusive frame of mind” is a technique I teach to people to improve their compositions, as an antidote to that tendency to crop too tight. We often end up focusing too much on what we want out of the frame, and not enough on what we want IN the frame. You have to get off that track to get results, and embracing the idea of being more inclusive is the key ingredient.

    07 / Learning to Love the Digital Darkroom

    Capturing images is only half the job. Processing is essential. This chapter is not so much about HOW to process but WHY to process. Learning to love the Digital Darkroom explores the joy of digital imaging and the power of the RAW file. We also look at what you need to make the most of processing files, including hardware and software, plus a special chat about backing up your hard drives.

Loved it!

A wonderful podcast to get you thinking differently when it comes to photography. Listening to this podcast hit a few points in my photography and my comfort zone at the moment. It makes me feel eager to get back behind the camera and try some different things to improve my skills.

Loved the “Why Competitions Suck” as a starter! Made a lot of valid points!

Competitions

Competitions! I have avoided them a lot without really confirming in my mind why? I just had some disquiet about it. This podcast had made me think more about this. Was it because they did not get “the score” I expected. Am I not just competitive? I had not fully realised the positives that can be achieved from the process. I think I need to think it out again. This has helped do it.

ReIMAGINE - Philosophies on Photography

Competitions have been a subject of discussion for many years. I have only been a member of a camera club for a couple of years, but have witnessed and lived through disappointment because of a score on my images. For a period of time I even stopped entering competitions because of the fear of dissapointment. If like me you feel that way you should listen to this podcast, it puts it in perspective.
