Hosted by Daniel j Gregory

Episode Number:

Over the past eight months, I have been dealing with the loss of my little brother. And while I have amazing family and friends to offer their support, it has been a long creative rut I have been in. Rather than process my feelings with my creativity I tossed myself in to simpler and less introspective work. However, you can’t avoid your creativity and what it drives in. you forever.

This week’s podcast is a monolog about how we can move forward and find support from our community of peers if we are willing to share and connect. Along the way, we might find out that our need to be perfect and great in our photographic process is a crutch we lean on and actually good is good enough.

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.
