Episode Number: 394

When looking at a single image, it can be hard sometimes to understand the context for the image.

This is true looking at contact sheets, or their digital equivalent, or a sequence on the wall,

In the podcast the week, we jump into some of the aspects to consider when looking at one image and how to balance the one photograph with the other images to tell both stories at a image level and essay level.
