In large part, 2021 seemed like a year of talking about photography rather than actually taking pictures. But just like with any important relationship, anything that you can do to keep the embers glowing is worthwhile. Today I’ll take a look back at the past 11 months and look forward to what could be different in 2022. I hope you enjoy the show.
Photographers aren’t the easiest folks to buy for. They’re picky about their gear, they already have more stuff than anyone realizes, and what they don’t have usually costs a lot of money. But there are always a few hidden treasures that are bound to delight, and those goodies are the focus of this week’s TDS Photography Podcast. I hope you enjoy the show.
When you’ve been away from them for a while, it’s easy to forget the joy of an in-person workshop. That is, until you’re all gathered there in a parking lot at a beautiful location getting your gear together for a short hike and a shoot. Then it all comes roaring back. This week we’re going to look at the adjustments required, and the resulting rewards, of a physical workshop. And look ahead to 2022. I hope you enjoy the show.
Those of you who have been following the story about my transition from the VW Vanagon to the EV ID.4 for our official workshop transport, this is the week where the rubber hits the road. Is it too early to switch from ICE to EV? Tune in to this week�s TDS Podcast to find out. I hope you enjoy the show.
In just a few days I leave for the Oregon Coast to co-lead a weeklong workshop. There are preparations on many fronts including travel route, photo gear, and apparel. As part of that process, I�ve noted that the long range weather forecast predicts plenty of precipitation. This definitely has an impact on my packing, and today I�m going to discuss how I prepare for a wet-weather photo shoot. I hope you enjoy the show.
Have you ever wondered what actually goes on when a bunch of photographers critique the work of their peers? This week, you�ll have that chance. I�m going to share a conversation from our recent class presentation for the Infrared Photography Workshop. Plus, I�m going to talk about Instagram and my favorite iPhone accessory. All of that, and more, on today�s TDS Photography Podcast.
Apple showed off its next generation of Apple Silicon processors for two new laptops, and they are impressive. Not only the speed bumps, but the actual designs of the computers are improved as well, especially for photographers. And that’s our lead story for today’s TDS Photography Podcast. I hope you enjoy the show.
I have become very familiar with the term, Request Stock Alert. As I compare recent camera announcements with availability, I see there is a fairly wide gap. You can receive shipment on some items, but they may not be the exact thing that you�re hoping for. And this got me thinking, maybe this is a good time to simply appreciate the equipment that I have, and leave it at that. I explore this topic on today�s TDS Photography Podcast (and lots more!). I hope you enjoy the show.
Photographer/Writer Ben Long joins the show this week to explain his ideas on how to grow as a photographer, as outlined in his new book, The Practicing Photographer. In the interview, I ask him how practice can be fun. He tells me I have it all wrong. And off we go! I’m pretty sure this is a half hour that you’re going to enjoy.
The other day, during a conversation, someone asked me, "Why, after all this time, are you still podcasting? Don't you get tired of the grind?" In the moment, I wasn't overly articulate, other than to say, "I still like it." Scintillating, right? But after some reflection I was able to put my fingers on a few key reasons, and I'm going to share those with you in today's TDS Photography Podcast. I hope you enjoy the show.
