Just a few comments on attitude… ;-)
A few episodes ago I talked about starting a gallery and documenting that process here. This is the first check in with you guys and mostly to this point its been brainstorming and gathering ideas around branding, marketing, promotion, product and sales/shipping processes. I still have a long way to ...
In the last show, we took a look at Amazon's new Glacier service. While it looks promising, its not ready for public use mainly to the lack of a client to actually get your files to and managed inside the glacier. Hopefully in the next few months we'll see some ...
This is a subject we haven't discussed in a while, but very important to any photographer. How do we manage all the images and files we create? Where do we store all of this. This is a bit of a primer episode, but I want to talk about a few ...
First off, holy cow! Episode 100!!! Thank you guys for supporting me this far. I never thought I'd have 100 episodes. Amazing - thank you for watching! Today we're going to continue in our minimalist darkroom series. In part 1 we covered processing film. Today we'll talk about printing. I'll ...
I have covered film developing on the show before, but I've never done an in- dpeth overview with a complete step by step guide to developing at home and all the tools that you need listed out. I'll be adding to this in the coming weeks, but this will be ...
Today we'll cover part 2 in our series on the decisive moment. Last time we talked about Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and the 50's generation of photojournalists. Today I want to talk about the work of my photography mentor and share a work with you. This is a different take ...
Starting a gallery is something I’ve been thinking about for probably the last year. I’d like to start a photography business from scratch and document as I go along in the show. I really think this would be beneficial to photographers who watch these videos from a business perspective, but ...
A few episodes back we talked about pushing and pulling film. This week I decided to put my talk into action and push a roll of Kodak Tri-X. This is an extreme example, but I wanted to see if it would work. I pushed it 4 stops from 400 up ...
I get concerns from people wanting to start a darkroom and develop film that it takes space they don't have in a smaller dwelling. I'm here to show you its still possible as I revamp my own darkroom.
The Decisive Moment is a term used by Henri Cartier Bresson to describe the photographers intuitive ability to recognize the exact moment to take the photo. In this episode we will explore Bresson's approach and talk about some myths around it.
Sometimes its important to get off the computer and get out to see some photography work. Going to museums and galleries provides an inspiring and different result than computer based imagery.
http://theartofphotography.tv/episodes/episode-92-pushing-and- pulling-film/ In this episode we will take a look at pushing and pulling film. Pushing and Pulling are techniques used to literally change the film speed from what it is rated. For example, if you're in low light and you need a higher ISO, you can simply ...
Episode 91 :: 35mm July 18, 2012
One topic I get asked about a lot is 35mm photography. There aren't many 35mm camera's produced anymore and the used market is very reasonable. In this episode we'll talk about what to look for when buying a 35mm camera, available lenses and their compatibility with modern digital cameras, and ...
I get asked a lot about how to balance photography with a seemingly time consuming, full time job. I'm here to tell you it can be done and give you some help along the way.
Here we'll take a look at how to post process RAW files and in the process go over some reasons why RAW is a much higher quality format to work in than JPEG, mainly by using some unconventional lighting situations.
Today we are going to talk about the RAW file format. Why would you want to use it and when do you need it? All this plus the Art of Photography Advisory Board, the new website and an Ireland Meetup. Visit us online at
In this episode we'll take a look at how you can come up with benchmarks as a photographer for measuring your work, improvement and success.
What is your photography product? What are you trying to create. In this episode we'll look at mediums and how you can benefit from crossing over them.
