Sean Bagshaw has been on the Photography Roundtable Podcast before and they were great shows. Check the out here… The Most Important Thing Photographers Can Do – Sean Bagshaw Episode 50 How to Photograph Amazing Light – Sean Bagshaw Episode 170 This time I wanted to get specific with Sean. I wanted to talk complex images and the entire process of creating them. So, what’s in this episode? First, we talk the planning stage. When you think about planning a complex photo, there are many contributing factors that you can actually control. Those are things like where the sun or moon will be, the time of day your shoot, or even your compositions if you’ve scouted a location before-hand. There are also factors you can’t control that you just have to cross your fingers about such as weather. Next comes the shooting. For the specific photo Sean Bagshaw and I discuss, there were several different photos and exposures that went into the first image of the lunar eclipse sequence.     We will also discuss the different images that went into the final photo. These are images like different exposures of the moon as the eclipse was occurring, the starry sky that goes behind the moon photos, and a separate photograph of the mountain itself. All of these are included below in their individual frames.     But, how do you put all of those images together?! How do you create a final image from all of those?! Lucky you, we will talk about that as well. Sean will tell you the techniques that went into this image that will certainly help you to create complex photographs like this one.   Want more examples of great photos?

If there’s one thing in photography that I love more than anything else it’s hearing from up and coming photographers. Candee Watson is definitely one of those. I found her on Instagram not too long ago and after scrolling through a few images I knew that I wanted to have her on the Photography Roundtable Podcast. Fresh voices in photography are absolutely necessary. You see, photography is something that needs new blood for new, progressive ideas and innovation. That’s what I believe Candee can bring to the photography world. In Candee Watson’s own words… I have not always been a photographer. What started out being something that I could do with my son, has now become a passion. Photography is not what I do, its a part of who I am… and I live it every day. In this episode I talk with Candee Watson about: What education in photography looks like now How to practice a creative vision and composition Places to shoot in the Pacific Northwest What can other photographers do to be successful while starting out AND MORE!

This year, let’s expect NOTHING out of our resolutions. That’s right, don’t expect anything from your goals. Let me explain… Photographers have developed a mindset of instant gratification thanks to a wide variety of social media outlets. When a photo gets a hundred likes right away, expectations rise. If expectations rise, then we expect more next time. That is definitely not always the case when you share a photograph. So, when we share and don’t receive a certain number of likes, we see it as failure. Let’s stop that. Let’s set resolutions that have zero expectations, but just relate back to our love of photography. That’s when you really start seeing results. How to Subscribe to My Podcast (free!)

What makes a great photo when a location has been shot a million times before? How do you pack light on a long photo trip? What should photographers do to avoid burnout? These are all questions Dan Ballard and I discuss in our latest episode of the Photography Roundtable Podcast. There is no one else I trust more when it comes to traveling with gear than Dan, and probably very few people as down to earth as Dan to talk about everything else. I always feel like I’m having a conversation with an old friend when I talk to Dan Ballard. And in this episode we discuss switching from Nikon to Sony, which is in the video below… For other topics covered in this episode, Dan Ballard discusses how to photograph some of the most overshot places and make them uniquely yours and how to pack light on long trips.

It truly is a joy having photographers as talented as Erin Babnik come on the Photography Roundtable Podcast. Erin has been someone I’ve looked up to as I’ve continued to study photography because she captures stunning, well-planned photographs. Speaking of well-planned images, who better to talk to than Erin about getting more thoughtful images. Erin Babnik has spent years looking for amazing new photography locations using specific techniques and tools. Not only that, but Erin also shares extremely knowledgeable information when it comes to breaking down creative barriers when you’ve hit a wall as a photographer. Be honest, we’ve all been there. Finding new locations to take photos takes time and patience, but hopefully after listening to this interview, you’ll be able to be more thoughtful about how to find exactly what you’re looking for in an image! In this particular episode, Erin is going to take us through how she has been successful in finding wonderful new places to shoot that are slightly off the beaten path. She also shares some of the difficulties you may face when looking beyond the typical location. For more background on Erin… Erin Babnik is a full-time adventure landscape photographer, photography educator, writer, and speaker. She is known for her ambitious images, for her adventurous approach in the field, and for her thought-provoking writing and speaking. Her dedication to outdoor photography evolved out of her years working as an art historian, photographing at archaeological sites and in museums for the purposes of teaching and research. She subsequently spent years producing photographs on assignment before transitioning to her specialty of wilderness photography and teaching photography workshops worldwide. Erin draws upon her background in art history in bringing a deep knowledge of aesthetics, visual communication, and cultural relevancy to her own photographic work and to her ideas about the art of photography, which she expresses to audiences around the world. Erin is also a member of the illustrious nature photography team Photo Cascadia.

John Barclay. Easily one of the most down to earth and humble photographers I’ve ever had the pleasure talking to about the amazing art form that is photography. He’s also one of the best photographers I’ve had the distinct pleasure to interview. I found John on Instagram and I knew immediately that I wanted to bring him on the podcast to talk to us about how he goes about his artwork. As John reveals in the interview, he never really considered himself artistic because he couldn’t draw or paint. I think it’s easy to see that by the interview, you’ll see that John is extremely knowledgeable on the artistic side of photography. If you’re struggling with creative vision or mastering the artistic side of photography, I urge you to listen to this podcast! In John Barclay’s own words… There was a time when I felt I could not create. My self-talk was quite negative, I am not a creative person, I can’t even draw a stick figure! After seeing images projected at the first workshop I attended, I dreamed of becoming a good photographer. Primarily with the help of Tony Sweet, Nancy Rotenberg and later Dan Sniffin, I was able to chip away at the negative self-talk and believe that I could create worthwhile images. Thus Dream • Believe • Create has become the center piece of what I teach in my workshops. I believe that everyone should dream big, and, can achieve their dreams. I know that when you truly believe, you will be liberated and then be able to create images that make your heart sing. The process and journey required to create images feeds my soul and brings me great joy. My goal is to capture the essence of the subjects I’m drawn to using the creative medium of photography. Sometimes this will be by capturing a small intimate portion of a scene. Other times I will use creative techniques such as multiple exposure, image overlay or camera movement for a more expressive interpretation. I used to call myself a nature photographer, however, I feel that limited my vision. Now I prefer, simply, photographer!This allows me to explore nature and its beauty but also liberates me to consider other equally inviting subjects like the Disney Concert Hall, Cuba or Eastern State Penitentiary, each having their own unique beauty. I am interested in those moments of perception where something turns my head. As I learn to pay attention to these moments, I feel more connected to the experience, creating images that make my heart sing.

So, I’ve been following Manny Palacios for a long time on Instagram and Facebook. The guy creates killer content that is fun to follow and really easy to learn from. I highly recommend following him on Instagram and Facebook. I wanted to get Manny on the podcast for what I thought would be a heavily weighted interview towards business and social media. While we did brush up on those two topics, the biggest thing I took away from our chat was the feeling part of photography. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of things in business photographers need to know. However, the feeling side of photography is what connects photographers to the work, and that’s what is most important. Manny Palacios is going to enrich your photo life in this interview if you’re struggling with only being able to shoot in your own backyard. If that’s you, or if you just want to explore the emotional side of photography, this is a must listen for sure. In Manny’s own words: I am Manuel Palacios, a dad, chemist/data scientist and outdoor photographer based in upstate NY. I spend most of my time exploring the beauty of the Adirondacks State Park in New York; day and night. Quite often you will find me “somewhere” enjoying the outdoors and trying to interpret a landscape with my camera, certainly lost, but on the trail. The reason I love landscape photography is that a landscape is an inviting living space. Landscapes compel us to interpret them and to feel them without any previous knowledge or background. Like gravity, landscapes have a tendency to ground us and to show us our little place in the Universe. I believe it is this profound connection to landscapes what brings us together in contemplation.  In the words of Barry Lopez, “Landscape is the culture that contains all human culture.” How to Subscribe to My Podcast (free!)

So the other day I was watching a behind the scenes video on the Chris Burkard film, Under an Arctic Sky. By the way, this is a great documentary on what big time photography journeys are like. I highly recommend it! Anyways, here’s the video: In the video there’s a quote on photographers that are forced to keep up with new technology that’s always increasing. That got me thinking… Photographers have been so far ahead of gear for so long and wished for the technology to catch up, but now we have switched and we are keeping up with the gear. That isn’t a bad thing either! In fact, it’s awesome! The time has come, however, that photographers need to re-think the way they use their new technology rather than keep up with it. There’s a huge difference in the two factors. Take the Sony a7riii for example… It shoots at 32000 ISO. That’s ridiculous. We can literally shoot 24 hours per day now. Now we are at a huge hinge moment in photography to think about shooting with new technology more intelligently. How to Subscribe to My Podcast (free!)

I’m baaaaaaack! Welcome back into the Photography Roundtable Podcast. I took six months off. But I’m back. Why did I leave for six months? To get my life straight. I plunged myself so deep into the abyss of things I hated about the photography world that I couldn’t stand myself anymore. Listen… I couldn’t even pick up my camera for a long, long time. This episode is all about my journey, my self realization that I had become something I despised, and how you shouldn’t make the same mistakes that I made. Do what you love. Don’t do what you don’t love. It’s pretty simple. Life is short, so have a listen and take notes. Self-awareness is everything. How to Subscribe to My Podcast (free!)

There are times to remain silent. And then there are times to speak out loud. In this episode of The Photography Roundtable Podcast we talk about photography conservation efforts that should be taken by photographers to preserve our careers and the places we love most. It’s not a difficult issue to tackle, but in an age that frowns upon confrontation it can be scary. However, if you care anything about photography, I think you should speak up. At no point in history have photographers had more responsibility than right now. How to Subscribe to My Podcast (free!)
