Episode LAST! Goodbye, Farewell, Adios

And… we’re out.

Some sound clips, some memories, and some great times. A long farewell tonight but it’s worth it. To all of our listeners, a heartfelt thanks from all of us. We’ve had a great time, enjoyed offering the show, but now it’s time to say goodbye.

A fond farewell to the friends of our show like Sorry for Your Luck, Liam, Grammar Nazi, Brian, Jason, Jayda, Ivan, and Ted. Our success was due, in no small part, to your input.

Oh, Brian… MARK IS A REAL PERSON!!!

See you on the next podcast, whenever (and whatever) it may be.

Cheers

Episode T-2

Show notes? What show notes?

We did this show a month ago and, for some reason, I never got off of my ass and posted it. So, there are no show notes simply because I can’t remember what we talked about – but I promise that it’s thrilling – and I am too eager to get home and have a drink.

But, can you believe that, after this, there’s just one episode left?

Plenty of time to buy shit through our links, of course, at http://www.polarizingimages.com

See you for the last one, friends

Change – T Minus 3 and Counting!

Change happens, right? It happens to all of us… it happens to the three of us… and it’s happening to the show!

Let’s get the big announcement out of the way – after 3 years, 72 episodes, and only 2 missed shows, we’re calling it quits. It’s been a great ride; all three of us are better friends than we were at the start of the show but we’re finding that we’re running out of steam (and topics) so we have this show and two more.

So, thank you to all of our listeners, our friends, and our guests for being a part of this journey.

But it’s not over yet! Today’s episode deals with change. As we close out the show, we take this opportunity to talk about how the show changed us and what change we (and our photography) are experiencing. It’s a good show – a personal show but a good one.

What do you think?

How Important is Knowing Photo History? Episode 68

The guys discuss how important it is to know the history of photography. Is it important to know the history of our craft? As you listen to today’s show, you’ll realize that it depends on who you ask. A lot of different opinions  in this show.

Is art a living thing? Does it matter if you never pay attention to other photographers? Can your art progress in a vacuum?

That’s the topic for today – whether or not it’s important for our own photography to study the photographers who have come before us.

 

What do you think? Let us know!

Oh, and please help us out by using our affiliate links on our page! kthxbye!

Go Forth and Sin Boldly – Episode 67

It’s a short show today and will be for the next one or two episodes. We’ve been doing this for two and a half years now and we’re feeling the need to revamp the show’s format. So, for the next couple of episodes we’re going to have one short topic until we find our new voice.

Today, as we kick off our “introspection tour,” our topic is the photographic sin. What sin (or sins) have you been guilty of in your photography? Also, what photographic sins are you just sick and tired of seeing other people make? For us, it runs the gamut from not shooting enough to Photoshop actions to selective coloring/desaturation.

What do you think? Are we right or wrong?

And, if you want to have some input into where we take the show, leave us a note!

Oh, and if you’re still doing this, stop. Just stop now.

The greatest sin of all

If You Couldn’t Shoot, Which Art Medium Would You Pursue? Episode 64

Art. It’s a word that most of us like to use when describing our photography. How many of you refer to yourselves as ‘art photographers’? Rob and Tony do as do countless others. Som with the word “art” in mind, here’s a question for you: if, for whatever reason, you were no longer able to photograph, what type of art would you pursue? Continue reading »

Legacy, Photography, and Va… WHAT? Episode 63

A Legacy of Images

Legacy? We have a legacy?

In tonight’s show, we get off to a weird and dark start (lots of swearing, WARNING) with the introduction and pwncasting  (that’s where we sucker some unsuspecting person who innocently logged into Skype into joining us) of “The Nuge”! Thanks man, that was fun. BTW, the rest of the pre-show banter was recorded and is at the end of the show.

After that we settle into our normal routine and Tony asks us about what we think our legacy will be and, perhaps, what it already is. How about you? What do you see your photographic legacy being? Do you even think you’ll have one? Let us know in the comments below what your thoughts are. We’d love to have the conversation! Continue reading »

A Hobby, A Book, and Something Else That Inspires – Episode 62

What inspires you, I mean besides photography?

Rounding out the who “seven questions” series we did, Tony thought we should tell more about ourselves and what inspires us. But, this time, talk about the non-photography related things that inspire our photography. Specifically, he wanted us to reveal one hobby, one book and one other thing (yeah, it is annoyingly vague). So we did. Continue reading »

I Hate It… I Love It… It’s Episode 61

Finally, Tony reveals the answer to the great question, what did he mean when he said Grammar Nazi knows a think or two about self-abuse? And Rob compliments the contrast. It’s something we love… Continue reading »

Should We Care About Whether Photoshop Was Used? Episode 60

This show is pretty late in coming out and I (Rob) have a perfectly good reason – I kinda forgot to put it out.

Anyway, great show tonight with a discussion on whether or not it’s still relevant to ask the question, “did they use Photoshop?” I had a conversation on twitter with a group of photographers on Twitter and it started off with a conversation about images that are staged or posed and, of course, it moved on to post-production. Then one of the other guys tosses this out, “Its deciding where photography ends and Photoshop wizadry starts.” Continue reading »
