I was recently asked if I use the app Photo Pill to do my photography research. While I love Photo Pills and use it and recommend it all the time, it is not my primary research tool. I often spend time looking at books, websites, movies, and podcasts that can give me insights into the non-photographic aspects of a place. It is the history, culture, backgrounds and other aspects of a location or person that feed the soul to help me understand the why I make my photographs of place.
This week’s podcast looks at the impacts of research before we go and take a photograph. Using that research to connect and find what resonates with us can allow us to create a more meaningful image.
