Episode 316

If you ever take one of my classes or workshops, you will listen to me talk about reading the photograph. The idea of reading a photograph is just like reading a book. You have to slow down, take it in, process the work, and think about it. I first came across the idea of reading the photograph from a Minor White article in the Aperature archives. Reading is an active state of being rather than a passive state. In this week’s podcast, I talk about why reading is important, how to stay engaged when reading the photograph and how reading can make you a better photographer.

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