With heavy hearts, we are saying goodbye to this podcast. Due to time constrains, we cannot continue to create interesting and engaging podcast. After 8.5 years of podcasting, it's not easy to say " this is the end". To know when to say, that's it, instead of forcing ourselves to create something interesting and compelling. We are sorry to let this show go.
I thought of asking Kasia what were her photography mistakes or photography sins that she still does... didn't realize it would blow up in my face. Top tip, never ask your wife about her mistakes, and never ever point them out.
We were recently discussing, what is better to invest your time and money into, gear, education or marketing. All three are important in growing your photography. Marketing is essential if you want to turn your photography into a viable business.
What are you thoughts about this? Where should you, as a photographer invest in?
We were out on a roadtrip again. Yes back to Kasia's favourite place, the Rocky Mountains or specifically Jasper National Park. According to the "tea leaves" weather forcast, it was supposed to be snow, flurries, and more snow, peppered with some sunshine. Well as most "tea leaf" forecast, it was mostly wrong. No snow, no flurries, just low hanging clouds peppered with sunshine. In other words it was glorio...
Our friend, a great photographer and long time friend of the show Michael Van Der Tol, gave us an interesting, albeit click baity article to discuss on the the show. It was written for fstoppers by Paul Parker and it's titled "The Death of Photoshop: A warning to photographers".
First off, it was middle of the day, bautiful blue cloudless skies... these are not the conditions a landscape photographer likes. So we attempted the impossible. Try to create a few images that would not suck. Have we accomplished th...
Another little road trip. Film and digital together again! These little road trips are a wonderful time to spend time together, chat, and take photos. They are also good time to forget about the daily grind, and just let your eyes and mind wonder. No distractions, no traffic, just you and the world. Best time to go on a date.
As I was scouring the intertubes for interesting topics, an interesting article caught my eye. It said that it's better to take bad photos than no photos.
This sparked a discussion of what constitues a bad photo and is it really better to shoot a whole bunch of photos just to record the world or is it better to take your time and decide if you even want to create a photo. Interesting...
With this cold weather we are experiencing right now (-41C) it's always good to be prepared when shooting outside. Whenever you are going for a shoot either outside or in a studio, you should have a checklist of things to take, but don't forget the mental preparation. Also be prepared to be flexible enough to take advantage of changes in weather conditions, light, mood. In this episode we talk about how to prepare yourse...
In this episode we chat about astrophotography and my complete failure to capture anything interesting.
In this episode Kasia wanted to buck the trend of shooting landscape photos during mid day, and not only during sunset and sunrise. You definitely have to change the way you take photographs and often the subject will change. Is it possible? Of course it is.
Also we ask a question, is flickr still viable in this day and age of photo sharing sites. Listen to the show to find out what we think of flickr.
Enjoy, and we will talk t...
Another great idea from our friend David Szweduik, from Adventures in Creativity, was if we learned anything photographically this past year.
To be perfectly honest, there was no eureka moments, but somethings like learning to shoot with 1 camera and 1 lens, or not to take a photo, when you know it will not turn out, thus saving you time in post processing. Things like that.
Have you learned anything during last year? Share y...
Since Christmas is getting closer with a great idea from our friend Dave Szweduik from Adventures in Photography, we thought it would be a good idea to talk about what we would love for Christmas. This can be gear, places to go etc.
We would also love to hear what is on your wishlist. So drop as a line, a comment a tweet. Don't be shy. money and time is no object :)
In this episode we are out to our favourite park, waiting for the sunrise and frolicking with bison. As expected lots of photographers arrived, as it was a beautiful "breakfast" for the bison. It's never boring photographing these big hairy cows. Especially on a frosty morning.
Given the question by our friend David Szweduik, from Adventures in Creativity, is setting a camera for different colors and effects would...
Today we are talking about styles. Does having a style is detrimental to your growth in photography? Or is it necessary branding for your photography? This is the question we try to answer in this episode.
We were proposed an idea, the creativity is done, specially in photography. There are so many photos out there of the seemingly the same thing. Same locations, same subjects, everything blends into boring "I've seen this a million times". So the question is are we really creative.
Well if we look at the definition of creative in a dictionary it states: "producing or using original and unusual ideas". One could s...
With more and more photographers entering the business of photography, two complete amateurs try to navigate the business world of photography and how it can impact established photographers.
As normal human beings we take pictures, because we it's easy. Almost everyone has a camera in their pocket. AS photographers we create even more images. They are almost all digital. So what do we do with them? How long will they last? These are some of the questions we try to tackle in this episode fully inspired by recent Episode 50 of Adventures in Creativity with David Szweduik
