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.
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.
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday and my usual hectic schedule, I'm repeating episode 86 from last year's end-of-November show called "Creative Oasis." I'll work on having some fresh content for mid-December but until then, if you haven't already heard this episode, I hope you'll enjoy it. It was a great discussion about creativity and what we can do to spark it in ourselves. Here are the notes from that show:
When the world around us is too overwhelming, where do we go to find respite? A "creative oasis" perhaps? The definition of an oasis is "something that provides refuge, relief, or pleasant contrast." How can we find these oases? Join me and my buddy Mark Reierson in an intimate discussion of exploration as we try to figure out together where these oases exist and what we can do when we find them. This show comes from an idea I had after being on the ShutterTime podcast with Mac and we explored a subject together while recording the show. It's a slightly new format which I'd like to try again. I hope you find the chat with Mark as fascinating as I did.

I'm joined by my friend Ward Rosin again, this time not for the promised "cage match" but to talk about what taking a trip to an unfamiliar place can do for your shooting. Ward recounts his nine-day visit to Guanajuato City, Mexico in February 2019 and how being there changed the nature of his street shooting style. I also chat a bit about how my recent trip to an upstate town did the same for me but maybe not as profoundly as Ward . We also geek out a little on the new Fuji X-Pro 3 camera and how it might enhance a photo trip to a new place.

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.
