Hosted by Daniel j Gregory

Episode Number:

This is one of my favorite podcast topics. In this week’s podcast, we are talking about questions you all have sent in over the past few months. I really do appreciate you sending in comments and feedback about the show, and getting a chance to record an episode dedicated to the more common questions is always fun.

This week we are talking about the following five questions:

  1. What is the best thing you can do for your creativity?
  2. How do you go about learning about something in photography?
  3. What is the biggest problem with photography today?
  4. How do I pick a new printer, lens, camera, etc.?
  5. How do you think about and deal with failure?

Each of those questions is so interesting and could be a show unto their own, but in this action-packed week, we try to tackle all five. I hope that as you learn about the importance of saying yes, storytelling, understanding your needs, and finding out how your life actually is working all give you some insights into your photographic practice. And if you have any questions for a future podcast, don’t hesitate to send them on over and I’ll be happy to add them in the future to another listener edition podcast.
