    04 / Slow Shutter Photography

    We talk a little bit about the practicalities of slow shutter work, but also want to give you inspiration as to *why* you might want to give it a go. We look at all the gear that is essential to slow shutter photography, and then get to grips with star trails, auroras, and working waterfalls and seascapes.

    What's more important, to get permission or to get the shot? What if getting permission *IS* the best wasy to get the shot?

    A version of this conversation happens on every photo tour. The idea within is powerful and can really transform your ability to photograph people.

So we started by talking about what it means to score a photograph for a competition - to turn an image into a number.

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.
