    Camera Position 209 : Your Own BackYard

    During this pandemic time, we have been forced to trade in the allure of travel for the allure of the backyard. As I return to the podcast after a long absence, I explore the idea that you don’t need to go somewhere special to make special photographs. Instead, you need to go deeper wherever you are.

    Camera Position 207 : On Warming Up

    Musicians warm up before they make music, but what about visual artists? Do photographers need to warm up before they create photographs? I think yes, and with the help of a podcast listener, we posit some ideas for getting warmed up visually.

An inspiration to take photographs

This is one of the few podcasts I have found which really inspires me to go out and take photographs, and not think I need another gadget. It also makes me think about what I want to capture, and why I want to capture it.

It's like a mentoring program to complement the author's other podcast on the History of Photography.
