In this week’s podcast, the value of routine comes front and center. A good friend of mine had recently purchased a new camera and asked me what one skill I thought was most important to photography. I sort of sidestepped the topic and picked having a good routine.Routines can be both good and bad. Routines help us keep organized, focused and hone our skills both technical and artistic. At the same time, some routines keep us from growing and changing. While some people advocate for a particular routine, I feel that each person should find a routine that works for them. By leveraging what strengths you already have and incorporating those into your process, you may find that you already have an effective way of working. If you, on the other hand, find your process to be too haphazard and disorganized each time you go out to photograph or work on your photographs, this is a chance to reshape your focus.Gear used in podcastOne of the questions I get asked frequently is what sort of equipment do I use to record my podcast.

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.
