otp-featured-bailey

If this week’s show has a theme, it’s change. Try as you might, you can’t avoid it forever and even if you could, sometimes it’s exactly what you need. We also discuss censorship and intent in a couple recent news articles. David Bailey is our Photographer of the week.

#121: Not Enough Room For Romance

otp-featured-porodina

Do you find yourself looking for signs? Not Stop or Yield, but signs from God, the Universe, or what have you telling you what to do? This week, we talk about signs and how waiting for them can often be an excuse for not taking action. We also talk about memories, specifically how bad humans are at remembering details and how photographs can uncover or even rewrite what you previously believed to be the truth. Plus, fantastic fashion photographer Elizaveta Porodina is our Photographer of the Week.

#120: You’re Not Moving Cannonballs

otp-featured-tcherevkoff

This week’s show is a bit of a monster. We do our best to answer your questions and there were tons of them – some on gear, others on process and technique. There’s a little something for everyone, but you had best grab a bottle of water and some snacks ‘cause this one clocks in at over two hours. Michel Tcherevkoff is our Photographer of the Week.

#119: Glacial Evolution

otp-featured-galella

This week, for some people making lists and setting goals are the only way to feel like progress is being made. For others, “goal” is just a four letter word. How do you gauge your creative progress? Inspired by last week’s discussion, paparazzi photographer Ron Galella is our Photographer of the Week.

#118: Savings Bond of Memories

otp-featured-greene-2

This week, we talk about photographs as a sort of time machine and how often embarrassing snapshots over time become the things you treasure most. Also, should the arts be co-opted by academia or is getting out and doing the work the way to go? How would you feel being famous for only shooting one person? It’s something we discuss around our Photographer of the Week, Milton Greene.
