Episode 233

There are many traps out there to keep us from making the types of photography that we want to create. Some of them are simple to see, while others are more complex in nature. As I was sitting in the studio watching my dog flip the pillows off the sofa she gets to sit on; it occurred to me that too much of something, even a pillow on a couch, might be a bad thing.

In this week’s podcast, we take a look at the impact of too much of something and what that can do to your photography and creative living. The two topics of gear and processing we quickly gloss over so that we can turn our attention to the impacts of talking too much, seeing too much and having too much time for our work.

Each of those areas can be useful and helpful in our photography, but when we have too much of any of them, it can cause us to derail our work. So let’s take a look at those three areas and how we can avoid getting snared in their traps.
