Rank #1: Lens Me Your Ears

Podcast cover
Read more

Last show of the summer. Being that I wasn't fully prepared for a show this week, I decided to take a new lens (and you too) on a walk in Green-Wood Cemetery again. While I usually don't cover gear in my show, this was a great excuse to get out walking, shooting, and talking while I gave a new lens a test. It's not a review show and I don't only talk about the lens. Why not join me for a stroll while I share my thoughts about picture taking.

Rank #2: The Delights of Seeing

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is just you and me today and is a slight followup to my deep dive with Ward Rosin into the work of Walker Evans. Lately, I've found myself "channeling" Evans as I photograph my neighborhood and a small, upstate NY town. I'm wondering what's going to come of this and am I imitating Evans, emulating him, or just shooting in a style he made popular.

Rank #3: Learn Something Old

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is just me and I talk about just how do we learn photography. Is it piecemeal or as formal education? Not that there's any wrong way to learn about photography but just what are the limitations of the methods of learning. Also, I chat about a topic inspired by another podcast and a friend's blog post: why do we always need to be creating new images? Should we take the time to look back at what we've already made and seek inspiration there sometimes?

Rank #4: Poetry of Coincidence Redux

Podcast cover
Read more

This week since I'm not feeling that great, rather than have no episode, I decided to rerun one of our earlier shows with an interview with photographer and podcaster, Marco Larousse. Tom and I interviewed Marco over two episodes but I glued them together to make it just one show. Yes, that means Tom is back! Here are the show notes from those episodes:

Marco started taking pictures as a young teen and has never looked back. Digital and film are part of his repertoire and despite some of the differences shooting in Germany versus the U.S. (particularly with privacy laws), Marco and the Switch to Manual guys find they share the same passion for capturing images from the street. His striking photography along with his Fuji X Files blog (where he shares techniques, tips, and reviews of Fujifilm's great X-series cameras) helped him gain a rare slot as an official Fujifilm X Photographer.

Marco’s work can be found on his website where you can also check out his Fuji X Files blog. It’s a  wonderful resource if you own a Fuji X camera and if you don't own one, you'll probably going to want to get one after reading it. Marco can also be found on Twitter and on Flickr.

UPDATE: Marco can also be found on his podcasting site PhotoPodcasts.com

Rank #5: The Unusual Suspects

Welcome to my 100th episode! This show I'm joined by three of my friends, Ward Rosin, Bryan Minear and David Szweduik who help me celebrate this milestone show by making a special announcement. We four, plus Mac Sokulski and Mark Reierson (who were unfortunately not on the show) have formed a new photography collective called "The Unusual Collective." In this episode we talk about what it means to be part of a collective and ask just what the heck *is* a photography collective.

Another stroll through Green-Wood with my camera, a Lensbaby, and my microphone. On this walk, I ruminate on some "deep dives" I've taken recently, studying some of the famous photographers such as W. Eugene Smith and Irving Penn. Also, some encounters with geese.

Rank #8: Clear Skies Ahead

Podcast cover
Read more

Wonderful show this week as I'm joined by my friends Mac Sokulski from the ShutterTime podcast and Fujifilm X photographer Bryan Minear. This show is a somewhat sideways response to Shuttertime episode 232 "The Replacements" where Mac goes on a little rant about (lazy) photographers who decide to replace flawed skies with newly purchased stock skies (I found these for sale on Etsy). I decided to ask Mac to come on the show, along with landscape photographer Bryan Minear, to flesh out the discussion about using manipulations to improve an image. This is not a pro or anti-Photoshop discussion; more, we talk about what we all do, at some level, to create images that speak to the viewers.
