A photography podcast hosted by Jeff Carlson and Mason Marsh. In each episode we take an aspect of the photographic process that is discombobulated and we seek to make it easy to understand. It’s what we do and we love doing it.
When you love making photographs, especially outdoors, taking a trip to some place exciting and new can be an wonderful way to do what you love. But what if you head out on this amazing trip of a lifetime and you are always rushing to make it to your locations when the light is at its best? What if you’re tired because you slept on the side of the road? Can you make great photographs if you are distracted by your growling stomach, freezing toes and the thought that maybe the photos would be better if you were over there?
In this episode we talk trip planning, because (as the saying goes) failing to plan is planning to fail. If you are looking to sneak away for some photo time on a family vacation or you’re preparing for that bucket list photography adventure you’ve been dreaming about, we have some tips to help you organize your trip to set you up for a satisfying experience. Remember, suffering isn’t the secret ingredient in creativity!
If you've ever found yourself immersed in making a photograph to the point where time seemed to stand still, your mind was fully devoted to your creative process and you felt deep satisfaction in the moment, you my friend were in a Flow State. In this episode of Photocombobulate, Mason Marsh and Jeff Carlson dive into the science of Flow State and how photographers can work to achieve meaningful, impactful and really fun photographic endeavors.
