#303: Who The Hell Goes To Picasso’s House?

©Donna Feratto

This week, making art because you have to and how context can elevate humble materials to something extraordinary. Also, connecting to the past through the tangential experiences of the present. Plus, why is serious subject matter taken more…seriously as important work? Donna Ferrato is our Photographer of the Week.

This week, we start with a question we missed on last week’s Q&A show around balancing available light and flash using speedlights. Also, a discussion around accepting not only who, but also where you are on your creative curve. Plus, what do you look for from a podcast? Eugene Richards is our Photographer of the Week.

#301: It’s Like Amway With A Camera

This week, questions and answers from YOU, the listeners. Topics range from the business side of photography — including social media and marketing — to how to approach subjects who may not “get” your vision on the shoot. We’re also talking about how art can sometimes be overwhelming to look at and even a few technical questions around gear. A couple questions were too big to answer here and we’ll tackle them on the next show. Hugh Kretschmer is our Photographer of the Week.

#300: When The Spirit Moves Me

©Franz Christian Gundrich

This week, we start with a discussion around the often finicky nature of inkjet printing—between random clogs and the cost of ink and paper, is it better to just job it out? Also, a talk around taking risks, inspired by an interview with Gail Bichler, Design Director of the New York Times Magazine who says that if your work is “consistently pretty good, but you don’t have anything great,” you may not be taking enough creative risks. TWO Photographers of the Week this week: FC Gundlach and Bert Hardy.

#299: Another Word For Failure

© Emmit Gowin

This week, we’re discussing “iterative ideation” — process whereby you course correct more often as a project develops — as a means of failing forward. Along the way, we wonder if “failure” is really the most productive way of thinking about our creative missteps. Also, we talk about some of the struggles of balancing our personal and professional lives on social media. Plus, 11 minutes for 3 setups with an icon. Emmet Gowin is our Photographer of the Week.
