Did Your Early School Days Influence Your Photography? Episode 70

We’re back, baby! And talking school… OLD school. No, not that “old school” but rather the school that we used to go to. From Kindergarten through the 12th grade, all three of us had experiences that, in one way or another, shaped our photography later in life.

Working it old schoolDid you have a nasty teacher? Or a great one? Listen to the show and see how seemingly unrelated experiences taught each one of us some of our most valuable pieces of knowledge in photography. From learning about the importance of layering a scene to being told (in a roundabout kind of way) that art and creativity take a backseat to the other classes like math and English, each of the guys recall memories from their school days.

How about you? Please let us know your thoughts. Any memories from your days in school that, looking back, influence you today as a photography? Let us know on the website!

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!

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

Do I Suck? Maybe…

Liam from the Isle of Man drops by to hang out with us this week to discuss a topic that haunts everyone: self-doubt. Topics include planning the next five years, overcoming doubt, and not charging enough. Just cash the fucking check and deal with it!

Today’s featured photographer is John Hyde and the featured artist are the Beatles. No link for the Beatles because if you need a link for them, you shouldn’t be using a computer.

BTW, check out Liam’s podcast, Uttabull.
