The Pleasures of Limitations


Joining me this episode is Mac from the Shuttertime Podcast. After going through an "existential midlife crisis," Mac talks to me about a photo he created during a recent trip he and his wife took and the limits he placed on himself while on this trip. Sometimes having limits can help to resolve a crisis and help create a once-in-a-lifetime photo. We also catch up on a bunch of other photo stuff.

Time Trip to 83


Not to 1983 but to episode 83 from last year. Because of a hectic week, my show schedule had gone a little loopy so I decided to replay episode 83 from last October. On that show, I had both Mac Sokulski of the ShutterTime podcast and Mark Reierson (both are also part of the Unusual Collective) where we talked about photo walks. I figured because the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk is this upcoming Saturday, Oct. 5th, replaying this show might be fun for those of you will be participating in that event and didn't hear this show last year. Also, I talk a little about a cool app that's doing some amazing things with the depth features of the newer iPhones.

A quick show this week as I had life get in the way a little but I did get the chance to visit the Garry Winogrand show at the Brooklyn Museum.

Lens Me Your Ears


Last show of the summer. Being that I wasn't fully prepared for a show this week, I decided to take a new lens (and you too) on a walk in Green-Wood Cemetery again. While I usually don't cover gear in my show, this was a great excuse to get out walking, shooting, and talking while I gave a new lens a test. It's not a review show and I don't only talk about the lens. Why not join me for a stroll while I share my thoughts about picture taking.

Put It Into Gear


A short, mid-summer episode. I'm throwing my hat into the "gear doesn't matter" circus. 


Shuttertime Episode 257

Either Side of the Camera


 This episode I’m joined again by my friend Ward Rosin as we take a deep dive into possibly one of the unsung heroes of photo history, Edward Steichen.

The Delights of Seeing


This episode is just you and me today and is a slight followup to my deep dive with Ward Rosin into the work of Walker Evans. Lately, I've found myself "channeling" Evans as I photograph my neighborhood and a small, upstate NY town. I'm wondering what's going to come of this and am I imitating Evans, emulating him, or just shooting in a style he made popular.

The Unusual Suspects


Welcome to my 100th episode! This show I'm joined by three of my friends, Ward Rosin, Bryan Minear and David Szweduik who help me celebrate this milestone show by making a special announcement. We four, plus Mac Sokulski and Mark Reierson (who were unfortunately not on the show) have formed a new photography collective called "The Unusual Collective." In this episode we talk about what it means to be part of a collective and ask just what the heck *is* a photography collective.

Let Us Now Praise


This episode, Ward Rosin and I get to talk about a childhood photography hero of mine: Walker Evans. We take a little dive into Evans' life, his stint at the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression and some of his other photographic endeavors during his life. Ward and I ask what was it about Evans' work that made him such an iconic American Photographer. Also, we dovetail the discussion into a newly discovered project by some high school students from Bellaire, Ohio.

This episode I'm joined by my buddy Dave Szweduik from the Adventures in Creativity podcast and we talk about why there are those of us who want to create a more "cinematic" look for our photos. Is it as simple as applying color filters and look-up tables to the images or is there something more to it than that?
