One of the consistent things that you see when you study working artist is that they are always working. While they may spend some time researching, reading and talking about aspects of their work, they all have their nose to the grindstone. I have learned that this is more than just a desire to create work, but it also is a step forward to understanding the work. It isn’t enough to just sit around and think about the work, at some point you have to do the work. We learn who we are as photographers by making photographs.

We learn about our identity as an artist in the type of work we create, the meaningful photographs are not just things we create for others, but they are foundations for us to learn about how we see and create our worlds. They give us insights into the past, present, and future of the life we have and hope to have. Sharing the ideas of our vision allows us to take steps forward in work.

In this week’s podcast, we examine the importance of how creating our photographs gives us insights into the way we use our process to help us understand out our life unfolds.

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
