    Photography Kit for Early Career Artists & Photographers - Before The Shutter

    Photography Kit for Early Career Artists & Photographers - Before The Shutter

    Hello Everyone!  

    Those who know my podcast and channel already will know that the focus of my writing is not on the technological side of photography but the theoretical and critical.  

    However I understand that some people will ask the inevitable question 'What gear do you use?' so this video is for you!  

    Here's my 2021 gear list, I think its a fantastic setup for anyone who wants to get the best out of a relatively limited budget especially as I know that it works for not only creating great artwork but working in a commercial role for studios and businesses etc!  

    Also it gave me chance to try out my new lights and studio setup. 

    Before I get into more complex subjects. Video editing is a pretty steep learning curve for me at the moment, so I apologise for any errors or issues that are in this video. I did notice that there are focus issues as it got stuck to my mic and not me, there a flickering at one point which appeared during rendering and whilst I did my best to hide all my cuts there are a few I just had to leave in haha.  Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated!  

    I shot this on my iPhone 1, I could get better results using my cameras but they are in the video plus I'm not so committed to this that I want to dedicate a camera or mess with setting up every time, at least not right now, if I start getting an audience then I'll consider moving to using my a7ii but for now I think the iPhone will be fine once I get used to colour correcting the footage properly and also nailing the lighting setup, it looks better at night but as you see here daytime is quite flat!  

    Anyway, hope you enjoy the video, if you do please do all the podcast things would love to hear your comments and see you in the next episode!

    Channel Trailer - Before the Shutter w/Harley Bainbridge Photography

    Channel Trailer - Before the Shutter w/Harley Bainbridge Photography

    Hello everyone!
    I want to say thank you for all the new listeners, and apologise for the delay in bringing out a new episode.
    This last month has been a busy one with the reopening of businesses meaning I’ve been busy in the studio, however that hasn’t stopped me working slowly away on Before the Shutter and happy to say the Podcast is now also available in video format on YouTube.
    This episode is the audio from the channel intro so quite short and many of you will already know what this show is about.
    I will be following up this episode shortly with a long form discussion on the influence of 19th century photographic practice on modern perceptions of art, I’ve written the script but need to record and seeing how long it took for me to do 3 minutes today an hour long may be a while ;p
    As always you can find my work at the following places

    and 
    https://harleybainbridgephotographyblog.Wordpress.com
    with music by

    Thanks again for your support and look forward to speaking again soon!

    Advice - How I Stay Resilient While Developing a Career in Art and Photography.

    Advice - How I Stay Resilient While Developing a Career in Art and Photography.

    Hello everybody!
    I hope this finds you all well and ready for the coming lifting of lockdown restrictions, please remember to stay safe!
    This week I actually managed to stick to my schedule and record a new episode!
    I decided to do a very off the cuff episode this week as I had quite a few experiences of misinformation, trolling and general hi-jinx which at some points frustrated and demoralised me but only in passing. This was quite a new thing as usually I struggle to stay on track and recover quickly from career knock-backs but this week I found myself a lot more capable of dealing with those issues and I wanted to discuss reason why I think I was able to move on from those experiences so quickly.
    I'll be talking about diversifying your audience, trolls, mentors and social pods, well I say talk it's probably more of a rant!
    I understand how frustrating it is for people to stay resilient, especially when it knocks confidence or instigates a creative block so I thought it would be useful for those who have or continue to have these issues.
    Hopefully with me talking about my experiences and advising on different ways to overcome knock-backs you'll find a way to manage your own development and continue creating and bailing an audience and career.
    As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated so feel free to drop me an email or message at any of the following places;

    What Can a Photograph Tell Us? reading 'A Wall in Paris, Texas' - Wim Wenders

    What Can a Photograph Tell Us? reading 'A Wall in Paris, Texas' - Wim Wenders

    HI everyone
    I hope this episode finds you all well!
    Apologies as usual for being delayed with my upload, I tried a few times to get this episode down for upload in a week but ended up ordering a new microphone after frustration with my old one.
    This episode is about reading imagery but I introduce more detail on the academic tools used to gain some additional information from what we see.
    If you would prefer to read the blog post you can here;
    https://harleybainbridgephotographyblog.wordpress.com/
    As has been quite normal recently I'll be looking at a specific image and that is 'A Wall in Paris, Texas' by Wim Wenders. If you want to view the image along with the podcast this is a link to the image;
    http://www.artnet.com/artists/wim-wenders/wall-in-paris-texas-d2Tnf3n8OUm6g9QkdzD3ag2
    In this episode I also mention work by Roland Barthes which you can find here;
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Camera-Lucida-Reflections-Photography-Classics/dp/0099225417
    and as also the background music is from a YouTube creator Et Vie Blanc, you can find their channel her;
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Camera-Lucida-Reflections-Photography-Classics/dp/0099225417
    I'm not affiliated so don't receive any kickback from these link, I just think it makes it easier for those looking to find some reference material.
    If you enjoy this episode please feel free to check out my other episodes available in all the usual places,
    I'd really appreciate your feedback so feel free to check me out and message me at the following places

    Reading Photographs - 'I Can't Breathe' - Brunel Johnson

    Reading Photographs - 'I Can't Breathe' - Brunel Johnson

    Hi everyone!

    This weeks episode is a little late, but it is also pretty long!
    I'll be discussing my reading of the photograph, 'I Can't Breathe' by Brunel Johnson.
    For those who wish to view the image you can find it here
    https://www.1854.photography/awards/portrait-of-britain/winners/#foogallery-47177/i:58
    And thank you to Brunel Johnson who's work can be found at https://www.bruneljohnson.com
    This was a challenging episode to write and record as the nature of the image can be considered difficult and sensitive but I feel the topics that I touch on need to be addressed more by white content creators in order to ensure questions around representation of Black people and the challenges they face reach as many people as possible.
    The topics are primarily how the photographer's compositional and post production decisions can influence the perceptions of an audience.
    If you enjoy this episode, or even if you don't, feel free to drop me a message on either the voice message system or at the following places where you will find my own photographic work and further blog posts...

    I'd really appreciate your feedback on the content and style of these episodes including the sound production as I am still learning and refining production,

    Thank you

    Harley
