Kids and Chairs

Been a while since the last show and I'm taking a walk around Green-Wood again to explain what's going on. Also, a bit of a special treat as some great fourth graders were tasked with writing (very) short stories about a couple of my images, included below. A wonderful treat to have one's images the subject of budding imaginations. So wonderful.

Cooped Up

Like you, I'm cooped up at home with not much to do. Been working at my remote job and that's been keeping me busy. Busy enough to delay publishing this episode. Well, here it is. I hope I can keep you company for a short while.

Paying a small tribute to my late friend and photographer, Robert Herman. I recorded this as a YouTube video as well.

Dispatches from Green-Wood

 IMG_7740-3_2.jpeg

Well, we've officially entered the Twilight Zone. Because of this, I needed to clear my head a little so I decided to do the show during one of my photo strolls through Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. I'm going to be working on my own YouTube channel and in this episode I share what I have planned. Also, just some of my personal thoughts about the current world situation.

Shiny Stuff and Lartigue

IMG_6338.jpg

 

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.

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.

What the Camera Saw

IMG_3565.jpg

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:

By The Numbers

Numbers, numbers, numbers. Did you ever notice how many numbers were involved in this thing we call “photography?” Well, I just did. Well, no, not really but an experience with some students got me thinking about all the numbers we have to deal with just to create an image. Also, I eulogize a recent “passing.

Continuum

Sorry for the rerun. Was told I uploaded wrong audio for this episode. I deleted the previous post and am sending a new one. Apologies for the mixup. This is the correct episode.

-------

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.
