On the "Camera and Inspiration"
show, Scott and Marco talk about inspiration in
photography and try to help you to take your camera out with more
intent. On this episode they cover the following topics:
- A warm welcome to the new "Camera and Inspiration" episode at
Photo Podcast Network.
- Scott picks this month inspirational photographer: Diane
Arbus (1923 - 1971) American photographer and photojournalist.
She is known as one of the early photographers to focus on
"marginalized" people of society. Her "An Aperture Monograph" book
is one of the most sold photo books in history. And the movie "Fur"
(2006, starring Nicole Kidman) tells a fictional version of her
life. Do check Diane's work out, she was a true master and still is
an inspiration to today's photographers.
- Why are we so attached to photography? We talk about the
documentary gene that make people want to record their daily
lives for future generations - dating back to the cave man.
- Scott shares some tips to help photographers become better at
the craft of photography by following some simple advises that he
wished he had known when he started with photography:
- Pay attention to the background.
- Know your gear backwards and forwards.
- Get to know your subject REALLY well.
- Marco's inspirational photo book of the month is called:
MOONFIRE by Norman Mailer and is published by TASCHEN (350 pages
ca. US-$ 40 / EUR 30). The book documents the probably single
most historic event of the 20th century: The moon landing of Apollo
11 on July 20th, 1969. The book has an amazing image quality for
1969 film photography! It's a well-structured visual documentary of
the events that lead to the moon landing.
