On Taking Pictures #89: 42 Puppies And A Snow Cone Machine

otp-featured-shore

For the first episode of 2014, we discuss how the tools that we use shape the way we use them. We also talk about the photographer/subject relationship and discuss how to better connect with the people you are photographing, which may even inspire Bill to take on a new project. Master vs. Mentor – one is about status while the other is about a relationship. Stephen Shore is our Photographer of the Week.

On Taking Pictures #88: Didn’t You Hear My Inner Monologue?

For the last episode of OTP in 2013, we discuss looking back to look forward. We look not at creating resolutions as much as mantras, concepts to drive us ahead and allow some wiggle room for the things that don’t work out exactly the way you think they will. Also, we look at ways to refine/expand the OTP G+ Group, which has now crossed 800! Iconic photojournalist Steve McCurry is our Photographer of the Week. Thank you so much for your time, your energy and your willingness to let us wrestle with the things we do week after week. We couldn’t do it without you.

On Taking Pictures #85: Good Art Doesn’t Have a Shelf Life

otp-featured-marville

This week, we talk about projects, specifically long-term projects and how the full value of them (on both sides) often isn’t fully realized until you’re well down the timeline. Also, who decides what art is important, or even good for that matter? Should “good art” (whatever that means) define the current culture or reflect it? Plus, 19th century French photographer Charles Marville is our Photographer of the Week.
