This week’s podcast talks introduces two new long-format workshops I am offering in 2020-2021. Each workshop will run for 6-7 months and is limited to six particpants. There is a foundation workshop about editing and workflow and an advanced workshop about finding more meaning in your work. You can get more information from the Workshops/Teaching menu above or using one of the links below.

Perceptive Photographer Foundation Workshop: The Developing Image

Perceptive Photographer Advanced Workshop: The Meaningful Image

Also in the podcast this week is an exercise that I do with some of the people I mentor.  I call it a 10×10 exercise. In this exercise, you take 10 images that you like and you edit them 10 different ways resulting in a total of 100 images.  The goal of the exercise is to help you see patterns, habits, new ways of seeing, and opportunities in your photography. The exercise will help you identify default ways of seeing and new ways to approach. your work. It is a simple exercise you can do anytime, and I hope you find it useful in learning how you approach your photography.

Defining your best work

Defining your best work

In this week’s podcast, we explore the elusive quest to identify the “best photograph” in a series, delving into considerations like emotional impact, composition, and our own personal bias.
