Episode 348

Sometimes you get a great image. You print it and hang it on the wall. Other times, you have a collection of images that you want to pull together for a collection, show, or book. Anyone who has tried to pull multiple images together knows that there is an art to that process. It seems easy but never is.

In this week’s podcast, I talk a little be more about how to think about sequencing your images into an essay or story. What sort of considerations to make before, during, and after the process. I also step onto the soapbox a bit about how we view and understand this broader collection of images and how they impact our understanding not just of the series, but the individual building blocks and reactions to work.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.

What’s the purpose for the picture?

What’s the purpose for the picture?

In this week’s episode, I dive into the importance of understanding your purpose when making a photograph. There are a host of reasons to take a photo, but understanding the reason you are making one will help you critique your images, organize your images and be successful behind the camera. Just like making sure you have the right lens on the camera for the images you want to make, having the understanding of your purpose can make sure the little details fall into place.
