    HT0393 - Living with an Image

    Here's a thought ... I remember being advised, in my youth, To take a print and thumbtack it to the bulletin board and live with it for a while before I made any final decisions about processing. I can't recall a single image that I didn't improve after I had lived with it for a week or so.

    HT0391 - Strategic Regularity

    Here's a thought ... This is a comment specifically for those of us who do photography as a personal passion or hobby. It's so easy for us to produce work sporadically. It's so much better if we can develop a strategy that works in our life that makes our productivity more regular.

    HT0390 - No Room for Your Bruised Ego

    Here's a thought ... Every experience of your life has the seeds of artistic growth. Even being rejected offers lessons of value, if that is your bruised ego doesn't get in the way.

    HT0389 - A New Bit of Terminology

    HT0389 - A New Bit of Terminology

    Here's a thought ... Photoshop is the brainchild of Thomas Knoll. Because we have Daguerreotypes and Woodburytypes so called for their namesakes Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre and Walter B. Woodbury, why not the Knollotype for all the analog purists who insist that a digital work flow does not produce a true "photograph"?

So glad I discovered this gem!

I’m so glad that I discovered this gem! These short episodes are filled with the advice and musings of a mature photographer and artist. I’ve even downloaded several episodes because I intend to listen to them multiple times for inspiration.

Best photography podcast there is!

My only regret is it’s not on Stitcher, since I don’t use iTunes for podcasts. You are missing out on a huge audience, Brooks!
