Dispatches from the Studio

IMG_2354.jpg

 

It's Antonio alone this episode and while he meant it to be another Dispatches from Green-Wood, the audio gremlins acted up and, well... Antonio is asking about how everyone archives their work and also ponders those "then and now" images. Also, a quick "review" of some crazy software. Note: The show "The Alienist was broadcast on TNT network and not on AMC as Antonio mentioned. Oops.

Ward and Antonio do a quick post mortem to last episode's interview with Melissa Breyer and talk about Antonio's guest spot on Bart Busschot's "Let's Talk Photography" podcast. Then they discuss why some folks just love shallow depth of field.

A Herzog Appreciation

(Midway Gamblers, Calgary, 2019 ©Ward Rosin)

 

I'm joined by Ward Rosin on this episode as we dive into Fred Herzog's "Modern Color" book. Not a review, per se, but more of an appreciation. Herzog is one of those "colorist" street photographers from the late 50s and 60s, photographing mainly in the city of Vancouver, Canada. Ward and I skim through some of the more thought provoking images in the book as well as discuss the controversy of a 2012 interview with Herzog. Also, stay tuned until the end where I make a much anticipated announcement.

Dispatches from Green-Wood 11

After a rather long enforced absence due to Covid 19 AND joblessness, I'm back with a rambling walk in my favorite outdoor podcasting location, Green-Wood. Also, I'm making an announcement about an announcement, if that makes any sense. 

 

 

 

Lens Hangover

AMRFisheye.jpg

 

For this first show of 2021, I have the pleasure of chatting with my buddy Ward Rosin again. This episode we're going on about my lens-buying binge during the past ten months and just lenses in general. Also, Ward tells us about his new lens "lemonade" stand. It's a bit of a long show and you'll prove your fandom if you listen to the whole thing. So grab your beverage of choice...

“Computer, Enhance!” A Chat with Bryan Minear

This last episode of 2020 (and my 3rd of December!) I chat with my friend Bryan Minear about processing. I was inspired to talk with Bryan after he posted a video he made of himself processing images in Capture One. I wanted to discuss this question that popped into my head: Has processing given us a solution for a problem that wasn’t there? While we don't fully answer this, I believe this is a beginning of a longer discussion about processing our photographs using apps like Capture One and the new artificial intelligence features of apps like Photoshop and Luminar AI. Processing is integral for many photographers (Bryan and myself included) whose visual voice is completed when they take their images into the digital darkroom, but is it possible to lose control over our creativity?

Dispatches from Green-Wood 10

20201212-DSCF4857.jpg

Another jaunt to Green-Wood because it's one of the places I can gather my thoughts. This time I'm talking a little bit about my new lens and a lot bit about what it takes to judge a photo competition. Also, my thoughts (and a suggestion) about self critique.
