Don’t Hurry, Be Curious Podcast: Episode 1
Episode 1: Phodogma
In my inaugural podcast I introduce myself and the podcast. My first topic is Phodogma, a term I think I just coined, which refers to the dogmatic belief in photography of various things from “status” to the “Rules”. I’ll occasionally have a segment about unwarranted beliefs in photography. In this Phodogma episode I talk about four dogmatic beliefs that some people think convey some kind of status on a photographer. These are:
1. Auto vs Manual
2. JPG vs Raw
4. Film vs Digital
Apologies. New content coming soon
Sorry about dropping the ball. I got “hung up” with work in my photography business then some time evaluating what I was interested in and what I was capable of. Typical artist self-conversations, right? I remember when I was researching podcasting and seeing some people just drop out of sight after a few episodes and I told myself I wouldn’t do that. But life has other ideas. I do plan to get back to podcasting soon. I still have my episode list, with new additions.
Just wondering when your gonna put up another podcast
