His first book, Cape Light, is considered a classic work of color photography and has sold more than 100,000 copies during its 30-year life. He is the author of 17 other books, including the newly released book by Aperture,Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks.You can find out more about Joel and his work by visiting his website at http://www.joelmeyerowitz.com.Joel recommends the work of Paul Strand (http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/pstd/hd_pstd.htm) and Alex Soth (http://alecsoth.com).email@example.com

Rank #1: Finding Stories Anywhere with Maria Ricossa.
MermaidAs a long time actor, Maria Ricossa knows people. You could say she’s an expert on human behavior. She has spent a considerable amount of time thinking about what makes different kinds of people and characters tick, and she uses this ability to her advantage when she hits the streets of Toronto where she now resides.Interestingly enough, Maria doesn’t spend much of her time shooting Toronto’s bustling city center. Instead, she stays a little closer to home and captures everyday stories she encounters on her daily walks. How did she find stories in a less urban environment? How did she find so many different stories in a single place? How has acting affected her work as a photographer? These were questions Bob and I were eager to ask. Maria had some thought-provoking answers to share with us as well as some of her own insights, stories and ideas for and from street photography.Maria’s Links Maria’s street photography website Maria’s Instagram account “I Want to Crawl into My Stories” by Maria (February issue of SPM) Women Street Photographer You Should Follow on the Web (Street Hunters)

Rank #1: We Shoot Mirrorless #6 | PPN | September 7th, 2017.
On this episode #6 “We Shoot Mirrorless” podcast episode for September 2017, Scott and Marco discuss these new products and mirrorless topics: This show is sponsored by B&H: bit.ly/bhphotodeals Olympus released the new OM-D E-M10 III with mechanical and digital image stabilization even when shooting 4K video. The new camera also gained more AF points, bigger dials and a beginner friendlier user interface. https://bhpho.to/2wJP5Co Fujifilm released the new X-E3 with a 24 MPix APS-C X-Trans sensor, 4K video, touch LCD and Bluetooth connectivity. But it still does not have a tilt-LCD… https://bhpho.to/2wayq7t Canon upgraded its entry level EOS M10 mirrorless camera with the new Canon EOS M100 model. It gains a 24 MPix APS-C sensor, a Digic 7 processor and 6 fps burst shooting at a very affordable price. https://bhpho.to/2wJEGX9 Ricoh has upgraded its popular and very compact 360° Theta camera with the new Theta V. The new model has a much faster processor to allow for 4K video along with 14MPix stiched still images. And the camera has a cool optional 3D mic (Ricoh TA-1) available for a more realistic 360° audio experience. Theta V 360° 4K camera: https://bhpho.to/2waKLIw Ricoh TA-1 3D Microphone for THETA V 360 camera: https://bhpho.to/2wJJkoh DJI upgraded the Mavic Pro with a new Mavic Pro Platinum model. According to DJI the upgraded drone has an increased flight time of 11% (from 27 to 30 minutes) and is up to 60% quieter in flight than the previous model! https://bhpho.to/2waQP45 Panasonic announced the promised FW 2.0 update for the Lumix GH5 (https://bhpho.to/2wJtfi8) camera and added a few extra features that were not previously announced. THe FW 2.0 should be ready for download by the end of September 2017. Hasselblad released a FW 1.17.2 update for their medium format mirrorless X1D-50c camera (https://bhpho.to/2wb3CDl) that adds the option of electronic shutter that operates between 1/10.000s and 68 minutes. They have also added the option to chose between 3 resizable AF points that allow for a focus point grid of 35 AF points for the largest and 117 AF points for the smallest AF point settings. Mirrorless question of the month: Hi Scott / Marco, absolutely love your show. Here is my question: If I want to get into wildlife photography, which entry-level mirrorless camera would you recommend for someone coming from DSLR? Why I'm asking: it's not clear for me if the Olympus E-M10 II as the E-M1's smaller sibling would be up to the task, although it doesn't have the E-M1 Mk II's phase detection AF. Would something like the Fuji X-T20 (which supports PD AF) be a better option? Looking forward to your recommendation!

Rank #2: We Shoot Mirrorless #12 | PPN | Sony a7 III, Canon EOS M50, Olympus FW updates, and more.
New cameras from Sony & Canon, Olympus FW updates, new lenses from Panasonic, Sigma, and Tokina - Q&A and the mirrorless photographer of the month. On this episode #12 of the “We Shoot Mirrorless” podcast for March 2018, Marco and Scott discuss these new products and mirrorless topics: This show is sponsored by: COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. Scott has been flying more miles in the past month, than most of the migratory birds that he photographs usually fly in a whole year. And he tells us what he has been up to. Next, they cover the current mirrorless industry news and comments by executives regarding the growth and bright future of the mirrorless imaging market. Sony launched their new a7 III - a full frame mirrorless camera with 24MP BSI sensor and 5-Axis image stabilization. Sony says that this camera has improved AF speed and battery capacity that is about twice as powerful as on the previous model. And for what it offers the price of $2000 may be tempting for many photographers switching over from DSLR’s B&H: https://bhpho.to/2DlRT8Q Amazon DE: http://amzn.to/2HnHH1H Canon announced the EOS M50 mirrorless camera. This model is positioned above the EOS M100 and has a built-in EVF. But the additional strong crop factor when shooting 4K video may be a deal breaker for more serious videographers looking for a photo camera to work with. B&H: https://bhpho.to/2FtGFoJ Amazon DE: http://amzn.to/2p3ZS4Y Olympus has announced a big FW upgrade for OM-D E-M1 II, E-M5 and Pen-F cameras that you can find here: http://www.getolympus.com/firmware Scott talks about his world experience with the Olympus Digital ED 17mm 1:1.2 Pro lens and Marco explains some real-world benefits of this lens compared to an f1.8 version. B&H: https://bhpho.to/2htbn6z Amazon DE: http://amzn.to/2p8GgN4 Panasonic announced the new ultra telephoto Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f2.8-4 ASPH lens for m4/3 cameras. With an equivalent field of view of a traditional 100-400mm lens, the lens weight of 655g or 1.44 lb is quite appealing and a nice completion of Panasonic’s f2.8-4 lens range (8-18mm f2.8-4, 12-60mm f2.8-4, and now 50-200mm f2.8-4) B&H: https://bhpho.to/2FsM1QK Sigma announced that it will make 9 of their Prime Art lenses available for Sony E-Mount in the future. These lenses are planned for the E-Mount: 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art, 20mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, 70mm F2.8 DG Macro | Art, Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, Sigma 135mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art Tokina has announced that it will offer an AF version of their 20mm FiRIN f2 FE lens for Sony E-Mount. Currently, this lens is only available as a manual focus version.

Eventually moving on to digital cameras with my first digital SLR being the Olympus E410 four-thirds system. I had a couple of lenses for this, the kit lens 14-42 and the 70-300 zoom 4-5.6. I now own the Olympus OM-D EM10 MK1 with a 17mm f1.8 lens. This combination is perfect for street photography but I do also enjoy other types of photography especially wildlife. For this I do need more focal length and the obvious thing would be to purchase a new lens but money is tight and I already have lenses that could be used to get closer. I use the 70-300 with the Olympus four-thirds adapter on my OM-D EM10 body. The problem is, it’s very slow to focus. A google search gave me the impression that some newer Olympus bodies were better able to focus this type of lens. Is this the case and would I be better off with an EM-1 I or II or are there some settings that I can make that would aid the use of this lens?

Included in this series are the LensWork Podcasts -- typically 10-15 minutes exploring a topic a bit more deeply -- and our almost daily Here's a thought . . . series. Here's a thought . . . is the audio portion from videos with the same title and are snippets, fragments, morsels, and tidbits from Brooks' fertile (and sometimes swiss-cheesy) brain.

Rank #1: LW1174 - Precision.
Strange as it may sound, I do miss the precision demanded of me by the processes in the wet darkroom. Perhaps it's time to recognize that precision is still required, but in a different area of our art life. You might be interested in . . .

Rank #1: 135: No Touchdowns In Photography.
This week, Inspired by an email exchange Bill and I had with a listener, we ask each other as well as all of you: “What makes a good photographer?” Is it the work? Is it ONLY the work?

Rank #1: Ep. 051 – The State of Photography & Social Media (with Colby Brown).
I’m so happy to welcome back one of my closest friends, Colby Brown, to the show. Colby was the guest for Episode 20, which just over a year ago, and it was great to compare the state of photography and social media from January 2018 to today. Because, as you can imagine, a lot has changed. Between Facebook’s myriad PR and political nightmares to Google+ shutting down, to Flickr working its way back to glory, the digital landscape for photographers is wildly different. This episode covers a lot of ground, whether you’re a photographer who is interested in making a career out of your passion or simply in it to share your photos with the world. Even better is that Colby will be returning for Episode 52! We had a second topic to discuss, but our conversation about photography and social media was too good to cut short. Give it a listen and let me know what you think in the comments section! Show Notes Check out Colby Brown at his website and on Instagram.

Ep. 032: I'm Really A Catch Subscribe via iTunes, Google Play, email or RSS! Thank you for listening to the No Name Photo Show! Connect with Brian Matiash and Sharky James on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook (all @NoNamePhotoShow). Did we mention SUBSCRIBE?!!! Please? ;) We've got some great topics ready for you in this episode. Our first story comes from a Petapixel story covering a wonderful video by Jamie Windsor. In Jamie's video, he ties an interesting study called the Dunning-Gruger effect to the mentality of when bad photographers think they're good. What's wonderful is the way that Jamie approaches the subject and it makes for a great conversation that everyone can relate to. Our next topic is dedicated to those photographers looking to add a little extra passive income from their work. It's not about getting rich but it may make buying that new lens or taking that trip a bit easier on the wallet. All that and a fresh portion of "What's on Your Gear Shelf?" round out Episode 32.

This is The Digital Story Podcast #710, Oct. 22, 2019. Today's theme is "The Evolution of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue I first learned about the original E-M5 in a closed door meeting at CES 2012. Olympus broke the news to the public the next month, and we started a whole new era of mirrorless photography. Now with the Mark III ready to hit the streets, I thought we'd take a look at this latest model, and the 8-year journey it took to get here. I hope you enjoy the show. Digital Photography Podcast 710 The Evolution of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is once again a substantial improvement over its two previous generations. Before I get to the evolution of this camera, let's review the basic specs for the just-announced model.

AF (Contrast & Phase Detection AF) 121 Point (All Cross Type) On-Chip Phase Detection) 5-Axis Image Stabilization with up to 6.5 Shutter Speed Steps Compensation with Sync-IS 2.36M dot OLED Electronic Viewfinder 3.0" Vari-Angle Touch LCD Dust, Splash and Freezeproof 10fps [H] mode 6fps [L] mode mechanical shutter30fps [H] mode 10fps [L] mode silent electronic shutter 4k Video Capture (30/25/24 fps) with Flat Picture Mode USB In-camera Charging 30fps Silent Electronic Shutter PRO Capture Lag-Free Electronic Shutter Mode Some people have referred to the Mark III as a mini-EM-1, and I think there's good reason for that nickname. But its evolution really took a different path, and I think its worth going back to 2012 to understand the real significance of this camera. Top decks of the E-M5 (left) and the E-M5 Mark II The first E-M5 was actually a fairly simple camera to operate. It had a mode dial on the left top panel with PASM, i-Auto, movie, Scene, and Art Filter options. On the right side were unmarked twin control dials with function and movie buttons. That was it. But its functionality was fantastic. You could program the function buttons and the dials to suit your shooting style. The body was weather resistant, and the handling was very comfortable. I still shoot with one today in the studio. I use it for my product shots. Some people complained that the buttons were too "spongy" due to their weather sealing. I know what they mean, but they never really bothered me that much. The camera is quite durable, and it's performing as well today as when I first bought it. Then, in February 2015, the Mark II was released. This was a very different camera, and one of my all time favorites. First of all, it was a wonderful HD video camera. Olympus replaced the up and down tilting LCD with a fully articulated model. The sensor-based image stabilization was further refined. And with the optional grip, you had jacks for both mic and headphones. The video it rendered was truly beautiful. Again, I still use this camera today. It's really good for live streaming. The top deck of the Mark II was more sophisticated than its earlier sibling. A convenient on/off switch was moved to the mode dial, and there were now four buttons and two dials on top. I really liked the program lever on the back that allowed me to switch from my still photography settings to movie settings in one easy motion. This camera was equally capable for both stills and movies. Plus Olympus added the 40MP High Res Shot feature. And they continued to refine its features and performance through multiple firmware upgrades. One thing that held back both the Mark I and the Mark II was computer processing power. In particular, burst modes in RAW were limited and the camera often had to pause to write to the card. And the second limitation was the 16MP sensor. And this brings us to the Mark III. Not only does it look more like an E-M1 Mark II on the top deck, it features a more robust TruePic VIII Quad Core Processor inside. The overall appearance is sleeker than the chunky Mark II, plus we now have 4K video (which many wanted in the Mark II), Pro Capture, 30fps silent electronic shutter, and a 20MP sensor. Horsepower is no longer an issue. In a sense, we've returned to the cleaner look of the Mark I, but with the firepower of the E-M1. I think this is going to be a winning combination for Olympus. It was worth the 4-year wait. Our LA Street Photography Experience is Coming this March This 3-day event on March 13-15 explores classic Los Angeles locations and architecture.

Rank #2: "The Sony a7R Mark IV Field Test" - TDS Photo Podcast.
This is The Digital Story Podcast #709, Oct. 15, 2019. Today's theme is "The Sony a7R Mark IV Field Test." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue It's big, it's beautiful, and it captures 61 MP files: the Sony Alpha a7R IV mirrorless digital camera with 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is a technology marvel. I wrapped my hands around one and spent a month using it on photo assignment, from darkened haunted houses to mid-day festivals on the green. And today I'm going to share what I learned during those shoots. Digital Photography Podcast 709 The Sony a7R Mark IV Field Test The kit that I've been using for the last few weeks is the Sony a7R IV with G-Master 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom. What a tandem! I basically felt like I could walk into any assignment with just that camera and lens and come away with the shots I needed. It is a confidence-inspiring rig for sure. In case you haven't been online for the last month, here are the basic specs. 61MP full-frame back-illuminated sensor 15-stop dynamic range, 14-bit uncompressed RAW, ISO 50 to 102,4005 Up to 10 fps continuous shooting at 61MP with AE/AF Autofocus: 567 phase-detection / 425 contrast AF points Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF for human, animal and movie APS-C crop mode delivers 26.2MP high resolution images 5.76 million dot UXGA OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder High-speed 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi / FTP transfer and wireless PC remote In-Body Stabilization: 5-Axis Optical Max Video Quality: 4K 30fps Twin SD card slots Weather sealed. After shooting with this camera for a month, here are my real world observations. It's true, low light performance is fantastic. I shot regularly at ISO 6,400 with acceptable results. ISO 3200 is a piece of cake. ISO 64,000 is acceptable for certain situations. Full frame sensor with Sony G-Master 24-70mm zoom is a pro rig. Optics and camera complement each other well. The results are impressive. File dimensions is a crazy 9504x6336 pixels. RAW files were around 123 MBs per shot. Extra Fine Jpegs were 34 MBs per shot. The Jpegs are good, but the RAWs are better. I did my testing with Capture One Pro 12.1.3. The out of the camera RAWs with C1P looked better, especially colorwise, than the Jpegs. This probably had as much to to with C1P as it did Sony. Editing the RAWs, however, provided less headroom for highlights and shadows compared to some of my other cameras. You do, however, get built-in lens corrections with the Jpegs. Autofocusing, tracking, Eye-AF, animal-AF, and everything else AF is impressive. This is also a movie-making beast. Videographers should be very interested in this camera. You have to spend some time to learn the menus and customize the camera. If you don't, it will frustrate you. If I were a portrait photographer only, I'm not sure I would choose this camera. Skin appears more ruddy that with some of my other rigs. I would probably seek out a lens that was better for portraits. The 24-70mm GM produces lovely background and bokeh, however. Its image detail is incredible. Viewfinder, ergonomics, and shooting experience is excellent. This camera is a pleasure to use. The bottom line is, I have no problem recommending the Sony a7R IV with G-Master 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom $5,696. If I were to buy a full frame camera right now, this would probably be at the top of my list. And I much preferred shooting with it compared to the Panasonic S1.

Rank #1: reCOMPOSE 005: State of the industry and Mirrorless vs DSLR.
reCOMPOSE 005: State of the industry and Mirrorless vs DSLR In the past few weeks we have seen a some signs of distress on our industry starting with the news of Nikon suffering some pretty staggering losses and most recently, we have seen a report from LensVid about the state of the photo industry in General. Plus as you folks may know both of us I made the switch to mirrorless cameras two years ago and still to this day we get many questions as to why, so we thought we would discuss again the many reasons why we both have independently chosen to go mirrorless. We don’t always have all the answers, but if we don’t we will research it and try to give you the best answer we can. So what have you got to lose, go ahead and send in your questions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
