90 — Tilt shift lenses for landscape photography — Interview w/ Darwin Wiggett

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #90 fea­tures an inter­view with Cana­dian land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher Dar­win Wiggett. It was recorded on a photo tour in the Alberta Rock­ies led by Dar­win. In the inter­view Dar­win dis­cusses why he often uses a tilt shift lens in land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy. For those that have never heard of a tilt shift lens, it’s a lens that has the abil­ity to tilt and/or shift while attached to your cam­era. The tilt­ing aspect of the lens allows you to get amaz­ing depth of field (REGARDLESS‚ of aper­ture) because the lens can tilt in the same direc­tion as the plane of focus. The shift aspect of the lens allows you to cor­rect non par­al­lel lines in cam­era when pho­tograph­ing a build­ing for exam­ple. It also allows for easy panora­mas. Dar­win is a fab­u­lous teacher so take a lis­ten and it will all make even more sense. We also talk a bit about test­ing your lenses, res­o­lu­tion, aper­ture, depth of field and image circles.

89 — Interview with Joyce Tenneson — Michael Grecco — Notes from Jay Maisel

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #89 fea­tures 2 inter­views that were recorded at the PDN Pho­to­plus Con­fer­ence and Expo in New York last week­end.‚ This con­fer­ence and show hap­pens yearly and is one of the largest photo shows in North Amer­ica. It’s an AWESOME show/conference with all the lat­est prod­ucts and fab­u­lous sem­i­nars from some of the best pho­tog­ra­phers in North Amer­ica. This post/podcast will cover some of the sem­i­nars and other posts will cover some of the products.

Inter­view 1 is with fine art pho­tog­ra­pher Joyce Ten­neson. I’ve been fol­low­ing her work for close to 20 years so it was a real treat to inter­view her. In this inter­view we talk about find­ing a per­sonal style.

Inter­view 2 is with well know por­traitist and celebrity pho­tog­ra­pher Michael Grecco. In this inter­view Michael shares some of his light­ing secrets to achieve a dra­matic portrait.

Finally I share some of the notes that I took in a sem­i­nar led by mas­ter pho­tog­ra­pher Jay Maisel.

Thanks again to Joyce Ten­neson, Michael Grecco and Jay Maisel for allow­ing us to fea­ture their work and for their won­der­ful seminars.

Thanks in advance if you pur­chase through those links. In the inter­est of full dis­clo­sure, I did not actu­ally pay to go see the sem­i­nars, I had a press pass. That said, if I did not think the sem­i­nars were great, I sim­ply would not have writ­ten about them.
