Podcasts, millions know about them. Millions have never tuned into one. Think old time radio that covered everything including the price of lamb’s wool, comedy shows, all forms of drama, and explanations of how the world works — now all delivered to your phone, tablet, or computers to listen to when you want.
The Candid Frame is a podcast that I listen to. It is an antidote to triviality. It centers on making great photographs. This is not an f-stop and bounce flash kind of show (rarely deeply technical). It examines the effort and attitudes that goes into making great art.
Please, do not reject exploring this show because you are not interested in capturing images. The podcast tells stories of working toward great work.
Here is the link to Barbara Peacock’s episode on the podcast Candid Frame that inspired this post.
Once you have the podcast playing look at some examples of her photographs using the links below.
Example of Photography classes by Ibarionexthere are several more on his site.
Simple. Use two sites together to hear Ibarionex interview a photographer, Peacock, while lookin at the photographer’s work.
I hold this thought from Ibarionex to my writing and other efforts.
Choose a subject or scene that you have easy access to and can return to photograph repeatedly. Make a series of images using dif- ferent qualities of light, focal lengths and perspectives. Consider what foreground and background elements you can include or ex- clude from the frame. Compare these images and try to understand why certain images work better than others.
