    Nature First Photography with Scott Bacon

    Nature First Photography with Scott Bacon

    I came across Nature First Photography when I was researching other guests for the show. I was curious and that curiosity led to this episode. I promise you there’s no politics, no bashing of ideas, at least not intentionally, but simply some good conversation and education about this organization and what they’re hoping to achieve.

    Photography as Fine Art? with Erin Babnik

    Photography as Fine Art? with Erin Babnik

    Art. What is it? Is your photography Art? Are you an artist? There’s many different opinions about this idea of art and photography. One thing is for sure, a photographer is a creative person, generally speaking anyway. But when you apply the term of art, when and why would you do that? What’s the point? Does it matter? Today I’ve got a wonderfully special guest joining me on this topic and I’m just loving it. This is Latitude Photography Podcast, Episode 124 for August 3, 2021
    August Topic
    The topic for August, 2021 is #InTheCity. Please get your submissions in by the 24th of August to be considered for the broadcast on the 26th. I’ll be on YouTube and I’m planning on doing it once again at 6:15 p.m. and we’ll see how that works for us once again. Submit images to the facebook group with the hashtag InTheCity and let’s see what you’ve got. 
     =And the design principle I’d like to see us focus on, if possible, is Color. Any color will work. Looking for ways to either showcase a single color, lots of color, anything to do with color. Let’s see what you can come up with.

    In a previous episode I’d mentioned the conundrum about my L bracket with the R5. I went with the Three legged thing as it’s orange and all the others, from RRS to the cheap brands all looked the same. So I actually made my decision based on color. But it doesn’t allow for full articulation of the flippy screen which stinks.
    Well, listener Ej Linser brought to my attention the PMG bracket https://www.promediagear.com/PLCR56--L-Bracket-Plate-for-Canon-EOS-R5-R6-Mirrorless-Camera_p_475.html
    Which does allow for full articulation since the vertical mount portion is not aligned with the side of the camera. I feel kinda dumb for not looking up the PMG option since my bracket for the 5D4 is by PMG and I literally thought to myself, I should look up PMG and see what they have before I hit the buy button here… But alas, I didn’t. So Ej earns a gold star for this recommendation :)



    MAIN TOPIC
    Photography as fine art.
    Way back on June 22, I posed a question in the facebook group. I said, “When you hear the term “Fine Art” do you think it applies to your photography?
    As in, do you see yourself as a fine art photographer or maybe… Do you aspire to have your works be considered fine art?
    Is Fine Art to “stuffy” of a term?
    Today, I have a special guest to help me think through this topic. She is Erin Babnik, Erin Welcome to the show!
     
    Talking Points:
    Let’s assume there’s two or three listeners out there who don’t know you or your work. What would you like for them to know about you, your work and I’d like to know how you got started as a photographer. Your Quote on your Canon Explorer of Light page states, “Exploration is the key to creativity. The more that you find to photograph, the more that you find yourself.” (further thoughts and commentary shall ensue!) Fine Art. It’s kind of loaded. I’d like to know your thoughts on the topic and then we’ll get in to what the listeners have said and we’ll comment on those as well. So your thoughts on Fine Art and how Photography is a part of that. And also, has the photography industry ever really settled on it means to have photography considered as fine art? That seems to be the listener comments that we’ll get to in a moment. Aref Alragehi says, “I personally don’t think it applies to me but I hope to get there one day. The reason I say that stems from my understanding of what it means which may not be accurate. Basically I think Fine Art is for a meticulous piece of work not just from a composition perspective but all the way through the print creation, the medium it is printed on the frami

    Shooting fall colors is something I just don’t get to do much of here in the PNW. Sure, we do have some fall colors, but nothing like the midwest or the northeast of the country. 
    Today I’m talking with David Long about photographing fall colors. David, welcome to the show!
    You were last on the show in November, 2018. https://latitudephotographypodcast.com/episode/new-england-with-david-long/
    My goodness, has it really been that long? Anyway, we talked about photographing New England in the winter, and this time, we’re going to talk about fall colors. 
    Main Points:
    Let’s start off with just a bit about yourself so listeners can be reminded of who you are and what got you into photography…
    Let’s talk about preparing for fall colors, in general. What should we be thinking about?
    Compositional elements
    Lenses and filters
    Quality of Light
    Weather
    Water
    Judging a proper exposure
    Let’s now talk about some specific locations that are found in your latest publication, Fall Foliage Photography in New England.
    White Mountins, Little White Church - Eaton, and Sabbaday Falls
    Northeast Vermont, Village View - Peacham
    Central Vermont, Caper Hill Farm - Reading, Sleepy Hollow Farm - Woodstock
    Southern New Hampsire, Henniker Covered Bridge, Garwin Falls - Wilton
    Central Mass, The Grist Mill - Sudbury
    How about some post-processing tips. We’ve gotten all these potentially great images, and now we want to bring them to their final edit.

    Theodore Roosevelt National Park with Chuck Haney

    Theodore Roosevelt National Park with Chuck Haney

    Today we’re talking about one of the least visited national parks in the lower 48 states. This is Latitude Photography Podcast, Episode 122 for July 11, 2021 
    ANNOUNCEMENTS/Other Comments
    July Topic
    The topic for July is #PublicLands. Please get your submissions in by the 27th of July to be considered for the broadcast on the 29th. I’ll be going back to YouTube for these broadcasts, and I’ll try a slightly earlier time frame as well. We’ll plan on 6:15 p.m. Pacific Time. And remember the idea of CONTRASTS if possible.
    A listener asked a question about where to print a large image. About 8x40 inches or maybe even twice that. Since this is a special size for sure, you have to look for labs that will handle it, and do it well. I recommended photocraft out of Boulder, CO. https://pcraft.com
    I’ve worked with them in the past and they did great work. They have lightjet prints and the standard inkjet printing, though they’ll call it gicleé on their website. Unfortunately, they don’t have online ordering at the moment, not sure what’s going on with that, but I can definitely vouch for their quality work.
    Also, for framing, take a look at https://pictureframes.com
    Though if you get up to 80” you’re going to be quite limited on the matting and framing options. It’s my dream that I’ll be able to set up a router in my new place and make my own custom frames. One of these days it will happen…
    I picked up a DJI Pocket 2 camera. It’s a tiny little thing, gimbal stabilized and does amazing quality work. They also put 4 mics in it so it can really get some quality audio going as you’re talking along while you walk. I also got the add-on unit that allows for wireless control of the camera and a wireless mic too. I’m looking forward to trying this out on the trail starting tomorrow. I fixed my car, as long as I did it right I’ll be on my way for three nights in the wilderness. I’ll know if I did it right once the AC gets recharged. If it leaks I know I’ll be tempted to open up my little book of bad words and use a few of them… :)
    MAIN TOPIC
    Today I’m joined by Chuck Haney, a photographer that has lots of experience shooting in a place I’m headed to later this year so I’m thrilled to have this conversation with him today. Chuck, welcome to the show.
    Tell us a bit about your journey as a photographer. Wherever you’d like to start… TRNP, I’d like to start with the most overlooked part of the park, where should I go that most folks don’t but the opportunities are excellent for great images? I’m considering spending all my time in either the North or South unit. I have 5 days of shooting and I want to be able to get a “deep” look at the park. That may mean I leave certain things out. I’m open to hiking and backpacking, though it looks like I can simply camp and simply drive to the various trailheads. What would you recommend for someone with five full days of shooting? Specific areas of interest South Unit: Petrified Forest Area Wind Canyon Painted Canyon Scenic Loop Drive with various overlooks Jones Creek  Peaceful Valley Ranch Specific areas of interest North Unit: River Bend Overlook Caprock Coulee Trail Oxbow Overlook Little Mo Trail Anything else you’d like to share about the park? Specific discussion about your images from the park. Describing each image and a bit about the story of each image. Go to my website https://chuckhaney.com
