#285: The Composition Within the Chaos


© Lynn Gilbert

This week, how do you approach a new project or body of work? Is the making more important than the potential juice? Or is potential monetization always a component? Also, a discussion around creating work vs. seeing work, using photojournalism as an example. Plus, a spoiler-free discussion of the making of Blade Runner 2049 from the perspective of practical vs CG environments. Lynn Gilbert is our Photographer of the Week.

#284: Time Is Your Only Currency

This week, have improvements to the gear side of photography affected the overall craft of making pictures? Or are we now able to simply pick and choose the pieces of the craft that matter most to us? Also, a listener asks about what motivates us to make, the love of doing it, money, or something else? Larry Burrows is our Photographer of the Week.

#282: All Of This Shenanigans Over A Camera

© Ronin Mckenzie

This week, does having tools at the ready make you more likely to actually create? Or is preparing to create a necessary part of your process? Sometimes creativity shows up messy, if it comes at all. Also, is the perception/representation around women in photography changing, both in front of and behind the camera? Depends on where you look. According to Getty, yes. But, based on something that recently happened with Nikon, maybe not so much. Ronan McKenzie is our Photographer of the Week.

This week, we’re attempting to answer some of your questions that range from our desert island photo choices to whether or not ego affects how we take pictures. There are also questions on how to recognize when a project is done and whether or not it’s possible to change your photographic style. As usual, we got some questions that really stumped us, and some that we’re going to have to come back around to after thinking about them a bit. Pete Turner is our Photographer of the week.
