🎤 Audio gear for podcasts and YouTube Videos we use or recommend
For podcasting I recommend using a dynamic microphone as it will reject a lot of room sound and background noise. The most important part is to make sure you are as close as you can comfortably be. Using a pop filter can help reduce sibilance and plosives as well.
Cheap But Great Option
►Samson Technologies Q2U https://amzn.to/3BzqP63
►Shure SM7B Vocal Dynamic Microphone https://amzn.to/3BAmFL4
Unless you have a really high quality preamp a level booster will give you a much cleaner sound
►Cloudlifter CL-1 Microphone Activator https://amzn.to/3DEuOkk
►Triton Audio FetHead https://amzn.to/3duCZFb
For photo walks

Mike Gutterman on 90's Grunge, Iconic Music Videos & Other Musings
I wrap up the first season of the podcast with the Gutterman of Neg Pos Podcast! It was a delight to get to chat all things music with Mike and really get deep into what he loved from the 90's and how music videos and MTV influenced his photography style. We have so much in common and I really cherished the opportunity to chat with Mike openly and freely about music more than photography! The two link up so much though and I know a lot of you are music fans so I hope this gets you thinking about what inspires you in that realm too!

So great! So Fun!
Talking about photography sounds like the most utterly boring thing ever but Lucy's take on it is so refreashing. Lucy's podcast, YouTube and articles are a breath of fresh air to the stuffy world of photography. Thank you Lucy for all of the inspriation and for doing things your way!
Fun take on film photography
Lucy has a great YouTube channel, and I’m so happy she’s expanded into this podcast. Each episode features an engaging conversation that feels so natural and effervescent that I can’t help but smile while listening. Her guess cover tons of interesting topics beyond film photography and each episode leaves me inspired and excited about the art of photography. I can’t wait for new episodes.
She is a little too woke. To each his own but I can’t stand that. I like her accent though. I’ll check back every so often to see how the show has evolved.
