    15 / The One Essential Food Shot

    Welcome to the ReIMAGINE podcast with Ewen Bell, and Shellie Froidevaux. This week we’re chatting about food photography and how to capture that “one essential food shot”. Normally we record with David Norris, but for this chapter I’ve called in my wife Shellie who is also a photographer, and happens to be an expert when it comes to shooting food. Shellie and I run an annual food photography workshop to teach skills to other photographers and professionals. We also just released our own cookbook in time for Christmas, called Cabin Fever Cookbook, which is 426 pages of Arctic Scandinavia and lots of gorgeous cabins in the wilderness where we perfected the art of cooking for a big group of people.

    14 / Shallow Depth of Field

    Welcome to the ReIMAGINE podcast with Ewen Bell, and David Norris. This week we’re chatting about “shallow depth of field” and why it’s such a powerful creative tool for photographers. What do you need to make it work, and what hurdles stand in your way to master the art of fine focus? We’ll talk about fast lenses and wide lenses, and where the two come together to make a little magic.

    12 / Life After The Shutter

    Welcome to the ReIMAGINE podcast with Ewen Bell, and David Norris. This week we’re looking at a chapter called “Life After The Shutter”, and the idea of getting those images off the hard drive and into the world. Our discussion looks at why the printed image is so much more powerful than the digital, and why this matters in both the camera club and the commercial world.

    11 / Less is More

    11 / Less is More

    This week we’re talking about curation of images. The process of culling, selecting and rejecting your photos is a difficult step in presenting work. The chapter is called “Less is more”, because we seek the balance between too little and too much and most frequently error on the side of too much.

    10 / The Image Gap

    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?

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.
