Rank #1: Trippy

I'm joined by my friend Ward Rosin again, this time not for the promised "cage match" but to talk about what taking a trip to an unfamiliar place can do for your shooting. Ward recounts his nine-day visit to Guanajuato City, Mexico in February 2019 and how being there changed the nature of his street shooting style. I also chat a bit about how my recent trip to an upstate town did the same for me but maybe not as profoundly as Ward . We also geek out a little on the new Fuji X-Pro 3 camera and how it might enhance a photo trip to a new place.

Joining me this episode is Mac from the Shuttertime Podcast. After going through an "existential midlife crisis," Mac talks to me about a photo he created during a recent trip he and his wife took and the limits he placed on himself while on this trip. Sometimes having limits can help to resolve a crisis and help create a once-in-a-lifetime photo. We also catch up on a bunch of other photo stuff.

Rank #3: Why Again?

Podcast cover
Read more

Slept late and didn't have a topic other than what I did these past couple of weeks in photography and a rerun of episode #70 from March 2018, called "The Why." Here's the description of that show: 

In this 70th episode, Antonio ponders the "why" in photography. Why do we care about taking pictures? Why do we want to share our photos in social media? Why do we care? Why, why, why? We all would like to know the "why" when we take pictures and why we want to show them and why we keep them. and why we photograph what we photograph. This is more a stream of consciousness than any really defined subject of photography.  Join Antonio on this wondering journey, as he begins this discussion which is sure to continue well past the end of this show.

Rank #6: Time Trip to 83

Podcast cover

Not to 1983 but to episode 83 from last year. Because of a hectic week, my show schedule had gone a little loopy so I decided to replay episode 83 from last October. On that show, I had both Mac Sokulski of the ShutterTime podcast and Mark Reierson (both are also part of the Unusual Collective) where we talked about photo walks. I figured because the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk is this upcoming Saturday, Oct. 5th, replaying this show might be fun for those of you will be participating in that event and didn't hear this show last year. Also, I talk a little about a cool app that's doing some amazing things with the depth features of the newer iPhones.

This episode started as a riff on the title but evolves (or devolves) into just a chat about photography. Does the camera see more than we do when we are shooting? The camera: does it work for us or do we work for it? My buddy Ward joins me in hashing out some of these questions.

Here are some shots of our bookshelves:

Rank #8: Creative Oasis Redux

Podcast cover
Read more

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday and my usual hectic schedule, I'm repeating episode 86 from last year's end-of-November show called "Creative Oasis." I'll work on having some fresh content for mid-December but until then, if you haven't already heard this episode, I hope you'll enjoy it. It was a great discussion about creativity and what we can do to spark it in ourselves. Here are the notes from that show: 

When the world around us is too overwhelming, where do we go to find respite? A "creative oasis" perhaps? The definition of an oasis is "something that provides refuge, relief, or pleasant contrast." How can we find these oases? Join me and my buddy Mark Reierson in an intimate discussion of exploration as we try to figure out together where these oases exist and what we can do when we find them. This show comes from an idea I had after being on the ShutterTime podcast with Mac and we explored a subject together while recording the show. It's a slightly new format which I'd like to try again. I hope you find the chat with Mark as fascinating as I did.

Chat with Dan Bailey

This episode I had the great honor of speaking with adventure photographer Dan Bailey. Lately I've been binging his YouTube videos and after I saw enough I realized I needed to talk to this guy. His photography is incredibly compelling and his desire to share his knowledge (through workshops, books and his videos) and inspiring outlook on life is equally so. I had a great time talking to Dan and expect him back on the show sometime in the near future.

Things have quieted down a little allowing me some mental space to record a new episode. This show I'm talking about how our relationship with equipment, lenses, apps are quite symbiotic when it comes to sharing our vision with the world. Does the equipment drive us to see the world differently or does it make what we see clearer? Good question, I think.

Shiny Stuff and Lartigue

Another busy freelance week means I'm rebroadcasting a show from last April, with me and Ward Rosin doing a deep dive on Jacques-Henri Lartigue. Also, a quick update on some future plans and shiny objects that are distracting me. 

Bryan Minear's X-T4 Preview

Here are the notes from Episode 96 regarding Lartigue:

In this episode, I'm joined by my buddy Ward Rosin and we do a deep dive into the photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue. 

Ward and I touch on many aspects of Lartigue's work including his love of speed and his use of one of the first color photography processes called "Autochrome." We make some interesting discoveries during our chat and I'm sure you will too as you listen to us both talk about a photographer we've admired for a long time.

This is the first of what will be a regular feature on Street Shots. The idea of talking about interesting and exceptional photographers with a buddy has been something I've wanted to do on the show for a while now. Any feedback is appreciated.

After having been to a recent family event where a slide show was presented, I ponder some of the meaning of these shows and how will we be making these in the future. How will future generations be able to create these shows for family events if there is no shoebox full of old prints and slides to scan? Also, I bitch a little about Epson printers and praise Blurb bookmakers.
