The masters of photography and cinematography, in conversation with Alan Schaller and Christopher Hooton.
What lens is the right lens?
In this episode, we hone in on lens choice, looking at different focal lengths, apertures, and depths of field, what they can bring to a scene and how they can change the relationship between its subjects.Follow the show: instagram.com/candelapodcastFollow Alan: instagram.com/alan_schallerFollow Chris: instagram.com/christopherhooton
'Provocateur' Tyler Shields joins us to talk pissing off the president, having the Secret Service camped outside your house over a photo, doing a six-minute breath-hold for an underwater shot, nudity censorship, and dealing with backlash in the age of outrage.Follow Tyler: instagram.com/thetylershieldsFollow the show: instagram.com/candelapodcastFollow Alan: instagram.com/alan_schallerFollow Chris: instagram.com/christopherhooton

Photographer David Yarrow joins us to discuss his distinctive black-and-white photos of wildlife, how shooting a bobsleigh race opened him up to the possibility of 'fine art photography', almost getting snapped in half by a hippo, and resisting the urge to use a telephoto lens – instead moving in closer toward what are often very dangerous creatures.Follow the show, the hosts and the guests:Candela podcastAlan SchallerChristopher HootonDavid Yarrow
Ocean's Eleven screenwriter Ted Griffin
In this episode we speak with Ted Griffin, a screenwriter best known for writing Ocean's Eleven (2001), who also co-produced The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) and executive produced Up in the Air (2009).Drilling down into Ocean's Eleven, we discuss Ted's research for the script in Las Vegas, the intricacy of creating and interweaving the stories of eleven defined characters, and his responsibility to keep the film's complicated narrative on the rails during principal photography. We also touch on his work with, and the work of, Martin Scorsese.
Photographing someone you've never met and who is likely just going about their day is a strange thing, especially in this bizarre, often isolated modern world. In this episode, we look at how you can get better at it, the pros and cons of making yourself known, how attitudes on the street have changed over time, and working with models and actors who are strangers to you on intimate portraits and emotionally raw films.
