Camera position 208 : Bringing Ourselves to the Photograph

By slowing down as we look at photographs – ours or someone else’s – we can more easily bring ourselves to the photograph, and by doing that, learn more about the medium and ourselves.

Camera Position 207 : On Warming Up

Musicians warm up before they make music, but what about visual artists? Do photographers need to warm up before they create photographs? I think yes, and with the help of a podcast listener, we posit some ideas for getting warmed up visually.

Camera Position 203 : Your Eyes and The Lens

Many people think of a wide lens as a way to get farther away from a subject, but I think of a wide lens as a way for us to get closer… a wide lens is really a close-up lens, allowing us to create a dominant subject in the frame by emphasizing the difference in distance from near to far.

Camera Position 202 : Exploring The World And Ourselves

Podcast listener Tracy wrote: “Photography comes from the depths of who we are. It is not only an exploration of our world, it is also an exploration of ourselves.” This episode is a “part 2” of self-exploration and its relationship to our photography, utilizing a worksheet that you can download called “Passion and Mission” to help you think through not only what you care about, but how you can take those things and transform them into a body of photographic work.

Camera Position 201 : Digging Deeper

What is your story? What are you curious about? What do you care about? How can your photographs express those interests? Making stronger photographs often depends on digging deep to determine your passion and then translating those passions into images.

Camera Position 200 : Make Interesting Mistakes

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes and art is knowing which mistakes to keep. Instead of living in fear of “getting it wrong,” a better, more useful strategy is to keep moving – plowing through the things that don’t work and slowly refining the process to get to the things that resonate for you and with viewers of your work. “Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make. Good. Art.” ~Neil Gaiman Play Podcast: Links for this Episode: * Neil Gaiman’s website * Morton Arboretum Photographic Society – Where I’ll be speaking on the Creative Process on Monday, April 9, 2018 * Got a minute?
