Camera and Inspiration #38 | PPN | Water People Stories - The creation process for meaningful photo projects with Dr. Pia Parolin
On this PPN Camera and Inspiration episode, Marco interviewed the biologist, photographer, and author Dr. Pia Parolin on the show. Pia has published different books in the field of biology and in the field of photography. With her latest photo project “Water People Stories”, she uses the access and skills that she has in both professions, to make her scientific work more accessible to the broad public.   This show is sponsored by MPB.com: www.MPB.com   Inspirational Photographer of the Month: Pia picked Russian-born American photographer Anastasia Samoylova. Anastasia’s work revolves around environmentalism, consumerism, and the picturesque. She has exhibited her work in many museums worldwide. She has also published several photo books with some of the finest publishers in the industry. You can find out more about Anastasia Samoylova’s work by visiting her website: https://www.anasamoylova.com/ Water People Stories - The creation process for meaningful photo projects: In the main segment of this show, Pia shared how she started her latest photo project “Water People Stories” - the project combines her work and skills as a scientist in wetland ecology and as a photographer for street- and documentary photography. Pia realized that scientists are often good at communicating their results amongst themselves. But they are usually not that good at communicating it outside the scientific world. Pia wants to change that with her new photo project, where she combines her scientific experience and access with her photography. In this project, she wants to tell individual stories about people all around the world, and how water impacts their daily lives. For those people who live in urban spaces, access to water is taken for granted. But that is not the case for people all around the world, and climate change and global warming may have a negative impact on the water supply for many more people in the future.  Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: Pia’s pick: “Floridas by Anastasia Samoylova". From the publisher’s description: “Evans witnessed modern Florida emerging in the 1930s, with its blend of cultures, waves of tourism, stark beauty, and blatant vulgarity. He photographed there until the 1970s, making Polaroids that still feel contemporary. Samoylova inherits what Evans saw coming. With intelligence and humor, she picks her way through the seductions and disappointments of a place that symbolizes the contradictions of the United States today. In Floridas, photographs by Samoylova and Evans are presented in parallel, weaving past and present, switching between black-and-white and color imagery…” The book is published by Steidel and has 192 pages Amazon: https://amzn.to/471qfwR Photo Festivals that Marco and Pia mentioned:   German Street Photography Festival is a part of PHOTOPIA 21. - 24.

Camera and Inspiration #35 | PPN | AI and Toy Photography a fun discussion with Scott Bourne
After a longer than anticipated break, Marco invited back his friend and PPN co-founder Scott Bourn to the 6. PPN birthday anniversary show.

In his process, Scott also saw lots of advantages to partially using AI in his post-processing workflow and has since embraced it and pushed his work to new frontiers.

And to cover this topic, Marco has invited photographer and photo gallerist Bastian Hertel to the show.   This show is sponsored by COSYSPEED: www.COSYSPEED.com and Luminar photo editing software: http://bit.ly/ppnluminar4   Bastian Hertel is a German photographer and photo gallerist. He is self-taught and his photography focuses mainly on street photography. Bastian has a very personal approach to his photography as he is trying to find subjects that fit into or reflect his personal emotions at the time when he is photographing. About 3 years ago, he wanted to bring his photography into the “real world” and opened up a photo gallery that focuses on street- and landscape photography. https://www.erstereihe.hamburg   Bastian picked Michael Wolf as the PPN inspirational photographer of the month. Michael Wolf was a German-born artist and photographer who started his career as a photojournalist and entered the art world quite late in his career. He became very famous quickly after releasing his “Life in Cities” and “Tokyo Compression” series. Bastian likes the consistency in Michael Wolf’s work approach by structuring his topics and working very consistently on his subtopics that also fit into a larger main topic. His work was exhibited all over the world and he won many photography awards. Michael Wolf died in 2019 at age 64. You can check out his work on his website: https://photomichaelwolf.com   In the main part of the show, Marco and Bastian discuss the topic if photographers and gallerists can be friends. In order to answer that question, they look at how a gallery is run and what is needed in order to bring a photographer's pictures onto the gallery's walls. This conversation can be very valuable for photographers as it gives a look behind the walls of a gallery and creates an understanding of what is needed in order to make the photographer & gallerist relationship work. Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: “Saul Leiter: Retrospective - Haus der Photographie / Deichtorhallen Hamburg.” Saul Leiter’s book “Retrospective” was published along with the retrospective exhibition at the Haus der Photographie / Deichtorhallen in Hamburg in 2012, one year before Saul Leiter died. Leiter saw himself as a painter and loved the color but color photography was regarded as “low art” for most of the 20th Century. But Saul Leiter managed to become one of the great pioneers of color photography in the art world.   Publisher: Kehrer Hardcover with 296 pages   Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2P8yRhw Publisher Info (ENG): https://www.kehrerverlag.com/en/haus-der-photographie-deichtorhallen-hamburg-saul-leiter-retrospektive-978-3-86828-258-0?___from_store=de Here are the links to Bastian’s work, gallery, and social media accounts: Web: https://www.bastianhertel.de Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bastianhertel/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bastianhertelphotographer/   Links to Marco Larousse: Web: www.MarcoLarousse.com Twitter: @HamburgCam Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marco.larousse/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarcoLarousse1 Workshops: https://www.marcolarousse.com/street-photography-workshops/   Links to PPN: Web: www.PhotoPodcasts.com or PPN.fm Twitter: @Photopodcasts Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photopodcasts/ YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/c/PPNPhotoPodcastNetwork Please support our show by using our B&H affiliate link (click here) or Amazon Germany link (click here) that will not cost you a penny more than when you are buying at B&H or Amazon without our link.   Check out the Skylum LUMINAR software: Link: http://bit.ly/ppnluminar4 (use the discount code “PHOTOPODCASTS” at checkout for extra savings)   And please share this podcast with your friends and subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or search for “PPN” in your favorite podcast app. We would also love to get your feedback.

Marco invited back his friend and PPN co-founder Scott Bourn to the traditional “end of the year in front of the virtual fireplace” Camera and Inspiration episode. 2020 was a very tough year for many of us, but instead of focusing on the bad (which there was plenty off) Scot and Marco looked at the positive things that they have done and learned in the past 12 months. And some of the things they would not have been able to do without the pandemic slowing them down in their regular routine.   This show is sponsored by COSYSPEED: http://bit.ly/cosyspeedbags and Luminar photo editing software: http://bit.ly/ppnluminar4    Inspirational photographer of the month: Scott picked Richard Sibbald who is one of Canada’s leading photographers.

Photography and Gear #25 | PPN | Lens Lens Baby! Creativity and lenses with Craig Strong - founder of Lensbaby
We have received a lot of questions about finding photography inspiration during the dull and grey winter days. And while the gear is usually not what takes the first spot on our shows in order to find new creativity, sometimes a unique piece of gear can help you to see your surroundings in a new way. And one company that has been dedicated to making this kind of gear and accessories is Lensbaby.

Camera and Inspiration #30 | PPN | Balancing your photography passion while dealing with restrictions of life - with Bryan Minear
Marco invited Bryan Minear to the PPN Camera & Inspiration show where they discussed how to follow your passion in photography, choosing a photo style and genre, while dealing with the restrictions of our daily lives. Bryan is based in the midwest of the United States and found his passion for design and photography at an early age. He is a designer and photographer and his skills, the quality of his work, and his open mind make him a very popular person to be around. Companies such as Fujifilm, Capture One, and Gnarbox made him their brand ambassador. He also joined the podcast community with his own show on creativity called “We the Creators Podcast”.   This show is sponsored by Luminar 4: https://bit.ly/ppnluminar4    Marco will be speaking at this WORLD PRESS PHOTO event on February 27th, 2020: https://worldpressphotoausstellung-oldenburg.de/programm/street-photography-poesie-des-zufalls/    Inspirational photographer of the month: Bryan picked two famous photographers as the inspirational photographer of the month:    Edward Weston (Born 1886 Illinois - Died 1958 Carmel by the Sea) One of the most important US photographers of the 20th century and co-founder of the f/64 collective. He is known for his artistic B&W photography and he turned ordinary objects like peppers, cabbage leaves, or halved onions into surrealistic pieces of art. You can find out more about his work by visiting his website: https://edward-weston.com    Brett Weston (Born 1911 L.A. - Died 1993 Hawaii) was Edward Weston’s son. His father took him out of school at the age of 13 and made him his photo apprentice. Edward followed into his father's footsteps but found his own style of photography. He focused a lot on shapes through macro photography as well as shapes in urban space. You can find out more about his work by visiting his website: http://www.brettwestonarchive.com Main Topic: How and why to choose your genre in photography and your style / Do you really choose your genre or does your genre chooses you?   Bryan and Marco share their experiences and thoughts on how you can find your style and genre of photography - during their inspiring discussion they also concluded that sometimes your genre finds you. Besides tips on what you can do in order to find your genre, they also touched on the advantages of being an amateur photographer - as the lack of financial interests by having to take pictures to sustain your income, you are free to take pictures of people, things, and places that may not be commercial interesting but that can put you in the spotlight as an artist.  Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: “Aeroglyphs & other Nocturnes” by Reuben Wu. Reuben Wu is a British photographer, born 1975 in Liverpool. He is also the co-founder of the electronic band Ladytron. An introduction to the book from the publisher: “Simultaneously reminiscent of the slick, neon glow of sci-fi aesthetics and the cryptic symbolic language of ancient petroglyphs, Reuben Wu’s work is clean, yet mysterious. His photography hovers somewhere between the mythic and the surreal, between dream and memory, with an undulating sense of temporality slipping between the ancient past and the imagined future. Light and land are entwined equally at the center of Wu’s practice. By affixing lights to drones and using them to illuminate select parts of the landscapes he photographs, Wu draws precise geometric marks that hover in the air like beacons, harbingers, and signs. His work is concise, yet versatile in concept, offering new ways to approach the human relationship to nature, technology, and the overlay between past, present, and future.” The book is published by: +KGP 30 Pages $28 at: https://www.krisgravesprojects.com/book/aero  Links to Bryan Minear: Web: https://www.bryanminear.com   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bryanminear/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bryanminear   Twitter: https://twitter.com/bryanminear   Podcast: https://www.bryanminear.com/wethecreators/     Links to Marco Larousse: Web: www.MarcoLarousse.com  Twitter: @HamburgCam Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marco.larousse/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarcoLarousse1  Workshops: https://www.marcolarousse.com/street-photography-workshops/    Links to PPN: Web: www.PhotoPodcasts.com or PPN.fm Twitter: @Photopodcasts Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photopodcasts/ YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/c/PPNPhotoPodcastNetwork  Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/ppn-apple-podcasts  Google Podcasts: http://bit.ly/PPN-GooglePodcast Spotify: http://bit.ly/PPN-fm Please support our show by using our B&H affiliate link (click here) or Amazon Germany link (click here) that will not cost you a penny more than when you are buying at B&H or Amazon without our link.   Check out the Skylum LUMINAR software: Link: https://bit.ly/ppnluminar4 (use the discount code “PHOTOPODCASTS” at checkout for extra savings)   And please share this podcast with your friends and subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or search for “PPN” in your favorite podcast app. We would also love to get your feedback.

Camera and Inspiration #29 | PPN | Looking back at the past decade of photography - with Scott Bourne
Marco invited back his friend and PPN co-founder Scott Bourn to the traditional “end of the year in front of the virtual fireplace” Camera and Inspiration episode. And as this is also the last show of the decade, they look back at the past ten years and how it has influenced the world of photography.   This show is sponsored by COSYSPEED: http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC    COSYSPEED Lens Pouche Indigogo campaign: http://bit.ly/fundlenspouch    Inspirational photographer of the month: Scott picked Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948 in Tokyo). Scott is particularly impressed with the Diorama photography that Hiroshi Sugimoto creates. It is a great example that there are many different areas in photography away from the very common themes that are worth exploring and that can lead to an excellent portfolio and make a photographer famous in a niche genre, too. Sugimoto has more work that is worth exploring and he has won many international photo awards and exhibited his work around the world. You can find out more about Hiroshi Sugimoto by visiting his website: https://www.sugimotohiroshi.com Here is a video interview where Hiroshi Sugimoto talks about his diorama work: https://youtu.be/q9GiyPbLYPg   What has happened in the past decade of photography? Some of the important photographers that have passed away in the past decade:   Robert Frank 1924-2019 - 94- Swiss / American Photographer. He was working for Life, Vogue and Fortune Magazine. In 1955 he received a Guggenheim grant that allowed him to do a social documentary in the USA for 2 years. Frank took 28.000 images during this time and 83 of these images were curated and published in the book “The Americans” that turned out to be the most important photo documentary of the 1950s in the US.   Peter Lindbergh (1944-2019) - He was a German fashion photographer. His image of five young models in downtown NY made the cover of the British Vogue in 1990. This started a new Zeitgeist in fashion photography after the high-gloss and make-up overkill era of the 1980s. He created a new understanding of female beauty with his black and white raw and alluring film images.   Fred Herzog (1930-2019) - He was a documentary photographer who was born in Germany and migrated to Vancouver Canada in 1953 where he documented the seemingly unspectacular everyday life of the city with his Leica on Kodachrome film.   Terry O’Neill (1938-2019) - He was a British celebrity photographer - He documented celebrities like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Elton John and so on. And he did it mainly in a candid photography style.   Robert Freeman (1936-2019) - He was also a British photographer who is known as the Beatles photographer.   Ara Güler (1928-2018) - Ara was probably the most influential Turkish photographer so far. He was also a Magnum photographer that traveled the world and captured many amazing images with his analog camera on B&W film. But most of his work portraits his home town Istanbul - his portfolio is an amazing visual history of this city. His nickname was the Eye of Istanbul. https://www.magnumphotos.com/newsroom/ara-guler-1928-2018/   Ren Hang (1987-2017) - He is regarded as a controversial Chinese photographer who was known for taking nude portraits of his friends. But he suffered from depression and took his life at age 29. His work is currently exhibited at the ℅ Berlin photo gallery it runs until February 29th, 2020.   Ben Martin (1930-2017) - He was a staff photographer for TIME and LIFE magazine who covered many memorable events like presidential debates between Nixon and Kennedy, JFK’s funeral, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s civil rights events.   Pete Turner (1934-2017) - He was one of the first masters of color photography. He started to experiment with colors as a teenager and his work merged the lines between art and commercial photography. He loved breaking the rules and this made him one of the most influential photographers of all time. Some of his stunning color photos can be seen in the book Color of Jazz. His most famous photo shows a giraffe silhouette with a bright red sky and purple ground.   Mary Ellen Mark (1940-2015) - She was a US photojournalist and Magnum member. She focused most of her work showing people who lived at the fringes of society. Her images display the empathy that she must have felt for her subjects.   Saul Leiter (1923-2013) - He was a US photographer and painter. His street photos of New York are beautifully captured and many resemble the look of a beautiful painting.   There are countless more amazing photographers that we did not cover here - many not as famous as they would have deserved to be but that have created amazing work. And we’ll continue to pick one photographer on each PPN Camera and Inspiration show in the future. But if you want to share other photographers that you feel very strongly about just add that photographers' name with a quick explanation of what you like about his or her work to the show notes below. Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: “Born Free and Equal - The Story of Loyal Japanese Americans ” by Ansel Adams. An overview from the publisher: “On February 19, 1942, U.S. presidential order forcibly removed more than 110,000 persons from their homes to one of ten "war relocation centers" across the country. All were of Japanese ancestry, but two-thirds were American citizens. Ralph Merritt, then director of Manzanar War Relocation Center, asked friend Ansel Adams to photograph the center, set against the remote mountains of California's Sierra Nevada. The resulting effort, Born Free and Equal: The Story of Loyal Japanese Americans, written and photographed by Adams, was released in 1944 to the American public as a book and exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Q&A #25 | PPN |Best of PPN Q&A from 2019
So many great photography-related questions were sent to PPN this year and Marco picks some of the best questions as a roundup to get you motivated and inspired for your photography projects in 2020. Please submit your photography-related questions to us here: http://www.photopodcasts.com/contact.html    This episode is sponsored by: Marco Larousse Street Photography Workshop: https://www.marcolarousse.com/street-photography-workshops    Skylum Luminar 4 - Supercharge your image editing and organizing http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3    Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:   Hi Marco, I have been listening to Scott and you for many years on different podcasts. But I love how you run and structure PPN. This has become my favorite podcast channel. As a listener for many years, you now have finally convinced me to start a photo project for 2019. But now I’m sitting here all excited but without an idea what kind of topic to choose. Can you help me with some advice on how I can come up with a good personal photo project? I’m an avid amateur photographer but do have some free time for photo projects. Thanks for all the hard work and great shows!   Question from: Willem, Rotterdam, Netherlands Link to Marco’s “Hamburg Unstaged 2017” street photography project on YouTube: https://youtu.be/qo2YUDUgV5I Hi Marco, You have mentioned in the past that photographers should not work for free because images have value and there is quite a high direct cost involved with photography (like camera, lens, training, storage, software, computer, etc.). But would you consider to work for free for a charitable non-profit organization? I have been approached by a local organization and would like to hear your opinion if I should make an exception here? Love the shows! Regards, Soeren Question from: Soeren, Stockholm, Sweden Hi Marco, I have been shooting my first events and weddings this year. I shoot in color and often with a flash. Most of the time the color and white balance on the subject is pretty spot on, but the background with artificial room light is sometimes completely off and looks distracting. How can I get more consistent results throughout the frame? Question from: Helen, Portland, Oregon   Gear and apps discussed in this question:   Rogue Gels Filter Kit (Set of 20): B&H: https://bhpho.to/2ZuHmnv  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2T5A5bs   MagMod Professional Flash Kit: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2ZISYUd   Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2MF2unx   App with info for Gel Color Filters:  Lee Swatch for iPhone: http://itunes.apple.com/app/id882232668 Lee Swatch for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.leefilters.com     Hey Marco, just a quick general question: Would you prefer one camera with either a zoom lens or with two prime lenses? Question from: Marcel, Vienna, Austria Hello Marco, I have a gear and marketing related question for you. I am working part-time as an event and wedding photographer. On my jobs, I use a Fuji X-T2 and a Fuji X-Pro 2 with prime lenses. My clients are always satisfied with the results that I deliver. But especially at weddings I often see guests with much bigger and more expensive DSLR cameras taking pictures as well. And sometimes I get asked if I plan on upgrading to a pro camera any time, soon - or similar questions. I know that my images are good, but do you think that it would help to upgrade to a larger kit in order to look more professional and maybe charge more money for my jobs in the future? Question from: Steve, Hong Kong Gear discussed in this question:   Battery grips for Fuji: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2SvvvFl Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2RNOK92    Battery grips for Olympus: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2SvFfPX Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2Gc89yV    Battery grips for Panasonic: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2SyEENE  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2RIKrf9    Battery grips for Sony: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2SyF8mW  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2UGO3ju    Battery grips for Canon: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2SChhm6 Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2TAacjj    Battery grips for Nikon: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2SxvBwh  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2DbFoOY I’m having a hard time judging the true color of my printed photos. I have a calibrated LCD monitor and a calibrated ICC workflow. The images come out in my studio the way I want, but when I bring them to hang at a customer's house or display them at a coffee shop, they often have a different color tint. How can I avoid this? Question from: Matthew, Ontario, Canada   Gear discussed in this question:   Philips Hue White Ambiance LED Light Starter Kit B&H: https://bhpho.to/2PIWsC2  Amazon Germany:https://amzn.to/2qKhrvU        Hi Marco, 2019 is the year I want to seriously improve my photography. I do have some basic skills but somehow my photos are boring and I don’t get a lot of encouraging comments or likes for them. I do enjoy the inspiration on the PPN shows, but can you give me some extra homework or inspiration to live and breathe photography in 2019? Thanks!   Question from: Julia, Oakland, California   Hola Marco, I am really inspired by the inspirational photographers that you have interviewed and introduced at PPN. I have looked at many of their images and this has challenged me to take an iconic photo one day. I am an avid amateur and know how to take good photos. Some of my images have been printed in a local newspaper already. I know that this is not an easy question to answer, but what can I do to achieve my dream one day?

We Shoot Mirrorless #28 | PPN | 4 new mirrorless cameras and more.
Marco has invited back his friend and long-time mirrorless camera reviewer and expert Mathieu Gasquet. Mat and his significant other - Heather - are also the founders of www.MirrorLessons.com / and www.MirrorlessComparison.com. This show is sponsored by: COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC  and Skylum Luminar - The cutting edge photo editor http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3  Marco’s Street Photography exhibition: “Poetry of coincidence” will be shown at ErsteReihe.Hamburg Gallery from November 21st to December 7th. Google Map link: https://goo.gl/maps/PGaP9uhmHibQTURE6    Nikon Z50 Nikon is entering the mirrorless APS-C sensor market with this camera. This camera uses the Z-mount and offers a 21MP CMOS sensor with a 209-point Hybrid AF System. But unlike the Z6 & Z7 it does not have in-body image stabilization. But it’s also smaller and lighter than the Full Frame Z-Siblings while still offering Nikon-like grip and ergonomics. The 90° tilt-up and 180° tilt-down LCD is unique but may interfere with tripods if you want to use the LCD as a selfie screen.   Nikon Z50 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2reW1Xv  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/35iefpW  Olympus E-M5 III The new E-M5 III shares a lot of features of the E-M1 MK II. It has a 20MP m4/3 sensor with a 121-point phase and CDAF and a 50MP high-res mode as well as 30 fps burst and 10fps with continuous AF shooting modes. On the video side it shoots 4K up to 24p and Full HD up to 60p is supported. The EVF now moved from an LCD to an OLED system which should improve the viewing experience. And Olympus continues to make their cameras more weatherproof - a feature that I have started to appreciate - when it works - in recent months. The E-M5 MK III is now IPX-1 rated. Bluetooth has also been added for better connectivity with your mobile devices.   Olympus E-M5 III B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Xzrfol    Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2XxmnjB   Sony a9 II After 2.5 years in production, Sony’s flagship sports camera gets a refined update. While the sensor and amount of AF pixel stayed the same, the new processor improves overall responsiveness and AF tracking reliability. The mechanical shutter can now shoot 10 fps. A second UHS-II SD card slot also improves the ability to offload the images fast to SD-cards. But the upgrade from 100 Mbit to a built-in Gigabit Ethernet port plus implementation of 5GHz ac Wi-Fi also helps to offload the images quickly to the photo agencies.   Sony a9 II B&H: https://bhpho.to/34cqILW     Leica SL2 Leica announced an update to their Full Frame SL camera line. The camera has a 47MP FF CMOS sensor with CDAF and now finally a 5-axis IBIS is built-in. A 187MP high res mode enables the user to create huge high-quality prints. And a 5.76M-dot OLED EVF is also a useful improvement. The camera allows for 10 fps burst shooting with mechanical shutter and locked AF which drops to 6fps in continuous AF mode. And pretty much all of these are the specs of the Panasonic Lumix S1R, too. But the Leica does have a different body design and it has a beautiful top plate LCD as well as 2 SD-card slots instead of the 1 SD and 1 XQD slot on the S1 and S1R. What’s lacking on the Leica is a tilting LCD screen. At launch, the SL2 is priced at $6000 US and is about twice the price of the Lumix S1R.   Leica SL II B&H: https://bhpho.to/2KDRAg3    Panasonic Lumix S1R B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IoT9zJ Mirrorless question of the month: Hello Marco, I have my Olympus EM-10 for 3 years now. Time to upgrade? Not so sure, I'm wondering if I rather keep it until I will start to see mechanical or electronic issues? The new EM-10 and 5 mark III are more capable (better image stabilization, more pixels, better Continuous autofocus...) but I still enjoy my ''old'' camera and knows its limitations. I think I would rather invest the money in lenses, travels or workshops, no? What do you think?

Camera and Inspiration #28 | PPN | How to get your photos into an exhibition - with Martin U. Waltz
Showing your photos as physical prints to the public is one of the most rewarding moments for a photographer. But at first it may feel a bit overwhelming to achieve this goal - but it may be easier to accomplish than you think.   Marco invited his friend and photographer Martin U. Waltz to discuss some easy steps and strategies that can help you to get your images into an exhibition. Martin has participated in about 25 public exhibitions and experienced many different approaches to exhibitions in the process that he shares with the PPN audience in this episode.   Martin U. Waltz is a street photographer, author, and workshop host from Germany. He mainly roams the streets of Berlin as this is the city where he lives in. In the past years, he has won many international photo awards and his images have been exhibited around the world. A couple of years ago he joined Marco Larousse and Siegfried Hansen in an effort to make street photography more accepted and known in Germany. Since then, the three have created the German Street Photography site. Contributed to publish the photobook: “Streetfotografie made in Germany”. And this year, they organized the first German Street Photography Festival.   Marco Larousse street photo Exhibition: “Poetry of Coincidence” November 21st - December 7th in Hamburg: Erstereihe Galerie - Lange Reihe 76 - 20099 Hamburg (St. Georg) Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/iQtbo3x3xfwTVqo8A   Inspirational photographer of the month: Martin picked Swiss-American Photographer Robert Frank (1924 - 2019) known for his raw and at the time revolutionary unstaged photojournalistic style. Robert Frank recently passed away and Martin wanted to recognize Frank’s work that will live on and continue to inspire many generations of photographers from the present but also well in the future of mankind. You can see some of Frank’s images on Artsy.net: https://www.artsy.net/artist/robert-frank    Martins previous appearance at PPN in the Camera and Inspiration episode #8 for November 2017: Camera and Inspiration #8 | PPN | November 30th, 2017   Setting up a photo exhibition. Here is a video that shows the last exhibition that Marco curated and set up at Berlin Photo Week: https://youtu.be/q4ki4rCEL3o Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: “The Americans” by Robert Frank. To go along with Martin's inspirational photographer of the month pick, Martin also selected a matching photobook by Robert Frank. “The Americans”  The book showed, unlike the usual American photojournalism of that time, the tension of American culture and the strong differences between wealth, race and different classes at that time. The book was not received well in the US in the beginning. Frank’s work was called out by critics to be inferior due to technical imperfections by his use of a small frame 35mm handheld camera for his work. The image content was also often put down as irrelevant snapshots especially by those who liked the US to be seen only from the shiny side. Only over time did the public and art world’s opinion change on “The Americans” and today, it is one of the most important “honest” social documentation of that time in the US.   The book is published by Steidl and has 180 Pages Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/32ZiTIM Steidl: https://steidl.de/Books/The-Americans-2131325657.html  Links to Martin U.

We Shoot Mirrorless #27 | PPN | Talking about new mirrorless cameras with Angela Nicholson
Marco has invited back his friend, journalist, and reviewer of cameras and photographic equipment Angela Nicholson to talk about the latest news from the world of mirrorless cameras.   This show is sponsored by:   Skylum Luminar - The cutting edge photo editor http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3  and COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC  Canon has released the EOS M200. The new M200 replaced the M100 entry-level APS-C camera. It still has a 24MP APS-C sensor and a 180° touch LCD. But the new Digic 8 processor is supposed to improve the AF with Dual Pixel AF and eye detection. Canon EOS M200 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IWGxxG  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2BmvCc8    Canon PowerShot G5X MK II The G5 X MK II is a high-end compact camera with a 20MP 1” sensor. It has a fixed 24-120mm f1.8-2.8 zoom lens. But one of its special features is a pop-up EVF and flash. The touch-LCD tilts up 180° and 90° down and on the video side, the camera shoots 4K/30p and up to 120p in full HD video. Canon PowerShot G5X MK II B&H: https://bhpho.to/33Dx6ek   Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2MmgfH2    Fuji announced the development of the X-Pro 3. This new iteration of the X-Pro line from Fuji will have a better Hybrid Electronic- and optical viewfinder and it finally gets a tilt-LCD. But as much as Marco has been wanting this feature on the X-Pro line, he has quite some concerns if the way that Fuji implemented it will be very convenient in real-life situations.   Fuji also announced the development of an XF 50mm f1.0 lens. But this lens will come instead of the long-time announced XF 33mm f1.0 lens. Why did they change their mind and was this a good decision?   Marco’s Fuji X-T2 has issues with the weather sealing and the Fuji Cam Remote app continues to have serious issues.   Fuji has also announced an update to the entry-level X-A5 that is now called X-A7. The camera has a new 24MP APS-C bayer pattern sensor with 8.5 times more phase-detection AF-Pixel than the previous X-A5. The camera has only 4 buttons: A shared drive/trash bin, a replay, a shared Menu/OK, and a display button. Plus an AF-Joystick that helps to operate the camera next to the 3.5” touch LCD. The camera will be available in 4 colors and will hit the stores on October 24th. Fuji X-A7 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2nYdB0U    Sony introduced the a7R IV. This is a 61MP full-frame camera that also offers a high-res mode with 240MP. The OLED EVF as 5.7 Mio. dot and the 4K video mode does not add a crop to the width of the sensor. Sony a7R IV B&H: https://bhpho.to/2BqoYS9    Sony also added the new entry-level a6100 and the flagship a6600 to their APS-C lineup. The a6100 is a stripped-down a6400 with a lower resolution EVF. The new a6600 has IBIS, faster tracking AF and uses bigger Z-type batteries that hold about twice the capacity compared to the smaller W-series that the other a6000 cameras are using.   Sony a6100 B&H: https://bhpho.to/31pU9rm  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/35IAFlj    Sony a6600 B&H: https://bhpho.to/35E6onz  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2OVAb5q  Panasonic has released the Lumix S1H camera. This is the video-centric version for the S1 lineup. The full-frame camera has a dual native ISO sensor with 24MP that allows fro 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording at 4K/60P. Compared to the S1 siblings with one SD and one XQD memory slot, this camera has 2 SD card slots.   Panasonic Lumix S1H B&H: https://bhpho.to/2qkXbjT  Panasonic Lumix S1 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Ip0pLK    Panasonic Lumix S1R B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IoT9zJ  Panasonic also added the Lumix S PRO 24-70mm f2.8 lens to the lineup. B&H: https://bhpho.to/31nSBy7 Mirrorless question of the month: With the latest smartphone camera improvements does it still make sense to buy a compact camera to always have with you when your big main camera stays at home? And if you favor a compact camera, which one would you recommend? Question by: Luis, Madrid, Spain   Recommended cameras in the answer:   Sony RX VII B&H: https://bhpho.to/2J1b1OV  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2oOECnK    Panasonic Lumix LX100 II B&H: https://bhpho.to/35Hmk8L  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2MppHcM    Canon PowerShot G5X MK II B&H: https://bhpho.to/33Dx6ek   Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2MmgfH2   Canon EOS M200 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IWGxxG  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2BmvCc8  We have a PPN Photo Podcast Network group at Flickr (click link) that is open to our listeners and photos taken with all mirrorless camera brands.

Q&A #24 | PPN |Two primes or one zoom lens, how to fine tune your color workflow, and how to set up your ambient workspace lights?
Episode summary: When is the right time to choose two prime lenses over one zoom lens? Additional questions regarding a better color management workflow. And how to set up the lighting in your photo editing workspace? These questions are answered in this  PPN Q&A episode #24.   Please submit your photography-related questions to us here: http://www.photopodcasts.com/contact.html  This episode is sponsored by: Marco Larousse Street Photography Workshop October 25-27, 2019: https://www.marcolarousse.com/street-photography-workshops   Skylum Luminar 3 - Supercharge your image editing and organizing http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3    Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:   Hey Marco, just a quick general question: Would you prefer one camera with either a zoom lens or with two prime lenses? Question from: Marcel, Vienna, Austria I have a few questions regarding the most recent Photography and Gear Show (#24) with Ross Grieve. (Link-> https://www.photopodcasts.com/podcasts/photography-and-gear-24-ppn-color-management-is-easy-with-ross-grieve)  Though I love the results I get with my Colorchecker Passport, I've found it can be a bit cumbersome managing all of the profiles in LightRoom. Does Ross recommend keeping them all, or does he delete some of the more specific or odd ones after he's finished with the images from that shoot? If he does delete them, does he have an easy way to do it? Because all of the tutorials I read online were a bit involved.   He commented that he used the grey/white card part of the Colorchecker and also the part with all the colored squares. But the colored square part has a white square on it. Why do both?   Do either of you have any recommendations for the types of light bulbs and lamps used in the room where you do your post-processing? And where should the lamp be in the room, relative to the monitor?   Also, he commented on doing images on way home from a trip once, which was interesting because the light would continuously change conditions in the car. Did he feel confident in post-processing on the move because he had previously calibrated his device via the color management systems and therefore trusted that the device had it right even if it looked different to his eyes? Thank you so much for your time and expertise.

He has been working in the photo industry for more than 25 years and has written and photographed for publications including Outdoor Photographer, Rangefinder, Shutterbug and he is also the author of 6 photography books so far.

He is the host and producer of “The Candid Frame Photography podcast” that he started in 2006. Since then he has interviewed hundreds of inspiring photographers, including some really famous ones, that are discussed in the episode. Currently, he has published more than 480 episodes! On this episode, Ibarionex shares some of the most interesting and memorable interviews with photographers that he has done in all those years and how it has influenced his view on photography?   This episode is sponsored by: Skylum Luminar - Simple and fast photo editing software http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3    COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC Inspirational photographer of the month: Ibarionex picks American photographer Mary Ellen Mark (1940 - 2015) known for her photojournalism/documentary photography. She photographed people who were away from mainstream society and toward its more interesting, often troubled edges of society. Her photography went on to address such social issues such as homelessness, loneliness, drug addiction, and prostitution. Children are a recurring subject throughout much of her work. She was very good with people so that they would trust her and open up their soul without acting or pretending to be part of the socially accepted mainstream.  “When Photographing I want to reach out and touch something that I feel is at the core of people.” - Mary Ellen Mark http://www.maryellenmark.com    Inspiring photographers that Ibarionex has interviewed and talked about in this episode: Mary Ellen Mark http://www.maryellenmark.com/    Joel Meyerowitz https://www.joelmeyerowitz.com/   Dan Winters https://danwintersphoto.com/   Safi Alia Shabiak https://flashbulbfloozy.com/   The Candid Frame episode with Safi Alia Shabiak: http://www.ibarionex.net/thecandidframe/2019/4/28/the-candid-frame-464-safi-alia-shabaik Links to Ibarionex Perello’s work and social media accounts: Website:www.thecandidframe.com   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/Ibarionex/   Twitter: https://twitter.com/Ibarionex   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ibarionex  Japan Workshop with Ibarionex: https://www.nobechicreative.com/workshops#/tokyo-explorations-in-the-metropolis-with-ibarionex-perello-and-george-nobechi/   Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: “Making Photographs - Developing a Personal Visual Workflow” by Ibarionex Perello. “In Making Photographs, photographer Ibarionex Perello teaches you how to face and conquer two of the greatest challenges for a photographer: to consistently make good images and to see the photographic possibilities all around you.”   Published by Rocky Nook (and in Germany by dPunkt Verlag) - 320 Pages   English version: http://www.ibarionex.net/thecandidframe/2018/9/26/40-off-making-photographs-developing-a-personal-visual-workflow     German version at Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/34E90Bu Marco Larousse Street Photography Workshop October 2019: https://www.marcolarousse.com/street-photography-workshops Links to Marco Larousse: Web: www.MarcoLarousse.com  Twitter: @HamburgCam Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marco.larousse/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarcoLarousse1   Links to PPN: Web: www.PhotoPodcasts.com or PPN.fm  Twitter: @Photopodcasts Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photopodcasts/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/ppnphotopodcastnetwork Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/ppn-apple-podcasts  Please support our show by using our B&H affiliate link (click here) or Amazon Germany link (click here) that will not cost you a penny more than when you are buying at B&H or Amazon without our link.   Check out the Skylum LUMINAR software: Link: http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3 (use the discount code “PHOTOPODCASTS” at checkout for extra savings) And please share this podcast with your friends and subscribe via Apple podcasts, Google Podcasts, or search for “PPN” in your favorite podcast app. We would also love to get your feedback.

Photography and Gear #24 | PPN | Color Management is Easy with Ross Grieve
PPN listeners have requested a show on Color Management and Workflow as this is an important step in your photography workflow in order to get consistent looking image results. But some photographers leave this step out because it seems to be too complicated or they just go with their gut feeling. But thanks to modern technology, things are not that hard anymore as it used to be and on this show, we’ll explain the why and the how of a color-managed workflow in an easy to understand way. Because one of the biggest secrets of a color-managed workflow is that it’s pretty easy to do once you use the right tools.   We’ve invited pro photographer and color management expert, Ross Grieve to the show to take us step by step through a good color management process.

We Shoot Mirrorless #26 | PPN | Micro Four Thirds is NOT DEAD
Due to popular demand, we share our thought on claims that the M4/3 system is dead. Marco invited Scott Bourne back on the show to step on their virtual soapbox and discuss some of the claims about the demise of the M4/3 system now that so many new Full-Frame mirrorless camera systems have entered the market. And in the second half of the show, they cover some mirrorless news, a mirrorless listener question, and pick the mirrorless photographer and photo of the month.   This show is sponsored by: COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC    Skylum Luminar3 - The cutting edge photo editor http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3  The claim “Micro Four-Thirds is dead, ranks pretty high on the clickbait charts these days, but there are plenty of facts and arguments that contradict these claims. For example, some people may see the introduction of the Full-Frame S1 camera system by Panasonic LUMIX as proof, that Panasonic will abandon their M4/3 camera system. While looking at Fuji and Sony who run two complete camera systems with different sensor sizes successfully next to each other, such a move can simply be seen as a move to grow market share catering to more photographers. Besides that, different sensor sizes do have certain advantages over the other and some of these are covered in this episode. Some cameras and lenses matching this conversation are: Olympus OM-D E-M1X B&H: https://bhpho.to/2CEmWhH    Panasonic LUMIX G9 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Jy9B0u  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2KxmzJy    Panasonic GH5 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2JQLhr1  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/31t1AP4    Olympus ED 300mm f4 IS PRO lens B&H: https://bhpho.to/2JQ4kBB  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2yOsSTB    Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm f2.8-4 ASPH O.I.S.

The upgraded second version of this camera has improved in especially in the speed and usability department. A huge rear LCD and higher resolution EVF next to quicker start-up time and less blackout time between shots. Marco was also really impressed by the new USB-C option to tether the camera directly to your iPad Pro and run Hasselblad’s Phocus 2 app as an instant preview and editing extension to your workflow. And another nice fact about the camera is that the price has been reduced considerably compared to the release price of the previous version. B&H: https://bhpho.to/2ZLIOlG    Hasselblad CFV II Scott and Marco have fond memories of working with their analog V500 Hasselblad systems. And now Hasselblad revives the system with the CFV II 50C digital back. It attaches to old analog V500 cameras and turns them into a digital medium format camera system. But with the addition of the new tiny 907X body, the CFV II tunes into a very compact medium format camera for the new Hasselblad XCD lens system. And conveniently, that setup allows for autofocus, too.   Hasselblad 907X Special Edition B&H: https://bhpho.to/2ZPYrZ4  Olympus Tough TG-6 Camera SSummertimeis rugged camera time and Olympus added some improved features to this latest iteration of the TG-system that Marco and Scott discuss.

Mirrorless question of the month: What're your views on attracting birds for photography? For me bating is out of the question but what about calling birds with your phone with an app is that acceptable? Question by: Rick, Toronto, Canada   Marco adds a mirrorless component to the question: What are Scott’s two suggested bird photography setups right now?   Budget set: Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III B&H: https://bhpho.to/2LpfCct   Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/31o0LqO   Olympus ED 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II lens B&H: https://bhpho.to/2ZJDKOB Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2YC53Ol    Pro set: Olympus OM-D E-M1X B&H: https://bhpho.to/2CEmWhH      Olympus ED 300mm f4 IS PRO lens B&H: https://bhpho.to/2JQ4kBB  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2yOsSTB    We have a PPN Photo Podcast Network group at Flickr (click link) that is open to our listeners and photos taken with all mirrorless camera brands.

Q&A #23 | PPN | How to deal with mixed light situations and the impact of lens diffraction on image quality
How can you deal with mixed lighting situations in a location and avoid different color casts in your images? What is lens diffraction, when does it occur, and should you even worry about it? And an alternative to Photomechanics for quickly sorting through your images.   This episode is sponsored by: COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC   Skylum Luminar - The cutting edge photo editor http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3    Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:   Hi Marco, I have been shooting my first events and weddings this year. I shoot in color and often with a flash. Most of the time the color and white balance on the subject is pretty spot on, but the background with artificial room light is sometimes completely off and looks distracting. How can I get more consistent results throughout the frame? Question from: Helen, Portland, Oregon   Gear discussed in this question:   Rogue Gels Filter Kit (Set of 20): B&H: https://bhpho.to/2ZuHmnv  Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2T5A5bs   MagMod Professional Flash Kit: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2ZISYUd   Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2MF2unx App with info for Gel Color Filters:  Lee Swatch for iPhone: http://itunes.apple.com/app/id882232668 Lee Swatch for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.leefilters.com Hi Marco, when shooting landscapes in bright conditions, I usually step down my wide-angle lenses really far for a maximum depth of field. For example, the Fujifilm wide-angle lenses go down to f/22. However, I've heard of a quality impairing effect called diffraction which sets in at small apertures. What is this? Should I use f/22 at all? If not, what is your recommendation for landscapes and what is the purpose of f/22 on a lens? Question from: Peter, near Koblenz, Germany Links for this question: Lens Diffraction & Photography explained by Cambridge Color: https://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/diffraction-photography.htm What is Lens Diffraction by Expert Photography: https://expertphotography.com/lens-diffraction/  Update regarding PPN Q&A #14 - Topic: Photomechanic Hi Marco. I very much enjoyed this episode, which was full of good, real-life advice on interesting topics. I have an additional suggestion for the question on workflow from Victor, in Dayton, Ohio. I do a lot of amateur wildlife and sports event photography, and even a full day’s street shooting can generate hundreds of images to review. I have tried Photo Mechanic on a month’s free offer, but I also tried the Faststone Image Viewer, which is free for amateur or educational use. Photo Mechanic does a range of extra things as you described in the show, but Faststone works in the same way by showing just the embedded jpeg extremely quickly and letting you move or copy the good images for later ingestion by your raw processor, and for my purposes this meant I could save the £170 cost of Photo Mechanic. One tip common to both programs: the embedded jpegs aren’t very large files, so although they are both great for a quick scan to weed out poorly composed and exposed shots, I find critical sharpness needs checking in the full raw file, so only use them to chuck out obviously unsharp images. I hope that’s useful, especially for non-professional listeners.

Camera and Inspiration #26 | PPN | Street Photography with a System - with Siegfried Hansen
Street Photography with a System instead of lucky snapshots - interview with Siegfried Hansen.   This episode is sponsored by: Skylum Luminar 3 - Simple and fast photo editing software http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3    and   COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC  For the “Street Photography with a System” episode, Marco invited Siegfried Hansen to the show. Siegfried was born in Northern Germany and picked up a camera to become a street photographer 20 years ago after visiting a photo exhibition by André Kertész. He developed a unique photography style that leads to many publications and exhibitions of his work all over the world. He has solo published two books and has contributed to at least 13 more book publications. He is also a member of the prestigious In-Public (now called UP Photographers) street photography collective and some may have seen him appear in the Sky Arte TV Show “Master of Photography” in 2017. He is also one of the co-founders of the German Street Photography site and the German Street Photography Festival.   On this episode, Marco and Siegfried discuss how you can improve your street photography by working with a system and how going back to the same places over and over again increases your chances of getting a great shot. Siegfried established the catchy P.I.L.O.T. system to help you structure your street photography approach: P = Place I = Inspiration L = Layers O = Objects T = Theme   Inspirational photographer of the month: Siegfried picks Ernst Haas (born 1921 in Vienna, Austria - died 1986 in New York) an early adopter of Kodachrome color film at a time where most photographers were still using B&W film. His unique style of capturing graphic scenes and reflections in cities quickly attracted the attention of magazines and publishers. He was invited to join Magnum and even became Mangum's president in 1960. Ernst Haas photo books are very popular up to today and are often sold out. In September 2019 a new book of his will be published by Magnum and his estate. http://ernst-haas.com  Links to Siegfried Hansesn’s work and social media accounts: Website: https://siegfried-hansen.de  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/siegfried_hansen/  Twitter: https://twitter.com/siegfried1961  Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/streetphotography/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/siegfried.hansen.1    Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month:   Siegfried picks: “Ernst Haas: Color Correction”  Hardback, 232 pages, Published by: Steidl   Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2jNm98T  Publishers Website:https://steidl.de/Books/Color-Correction-0318264155.html   The book shows complex, clever and vibrant color images that were never exhibited during Haas’s lifetime.   Marco picks: “Hold the Line” by Siegfried Hansen   Link: https://www.verlag-kettler.de/programm/hold-line#/    Hold the Line is a beautiful and clever street photo book with a collection of lines, symmetry, and color in public space. It has 56 pages and was published by Kettler in May 2015. The book is sold out and now fetches quite high prices on the used photography book market. So this is a reminder that sometimes it’s worth to get the photo book right away when it’s still available.  Links to Marco Larousse: Web: www.MarcoLarousse.com  Twitter: @HamburgCam Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marco.larousse/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarcoLarousse1   Links to PPN: Web: www.PhotoPodcasts.com or PPN.fm  Twitter: @Photopodcasts Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/photopodcasts/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/ppnphotopodcastnetwork Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/ppn-apple-podcasts  Please support our show by using our B&H affiliate link (click here) or Amazon Germany link (click here) that will not cost you a penny more than when you are buying at B&H or Amazon without our link.   Check out the Skylum LUMINAR 3 software: Link: http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3 (use the discount code “PHOTOPODCASTS” at checkout for extra savings)   And please share this podcast with your friends and subscribe via Apple podcasts, Google Podcasts, or search for “PPN” in your favorite podcast app. We would also love to get your feedback.

Camera and Inspiration #25 | PPN | On Talking Creativity - with Jeffery Saddoris
For the “On Talking Creativity” episode, Marco invited Jeffery Saddoris to the show. Jeffery was born in California and became a technical theater major in college. After working on scenery and costume design at different theaters in the US, he changed directions and became an instructor for HTML and Photoshop - which eventually led him to become an Art Director at Universal Studios. Since High-School, he has always explored photography and painting as a hobby and merged both passions together in mixed media art. After many years of practicing and teaching photography, he wanted to share and discuss the creative process in photography and art with the world. He started the website Faded & Blurred, which was a leading source of photographic inspiration from 2009-2015, and still is a great resource today. Jeffery joined NY photographer Bill Wadman in 2012 to co-host the popular weekly photography podcast “OTP - On Taking Pictures” which ran for 6 years and 326 episodes. Now Jeffery runs his own series of podcasts on creativity like “Process Driven”, Iterations”, or “In Between”. He’s also the author of a great photography guide “Photography by the Letter” (link: https://jefferysaddoris.com/photography-by-the-letter/).

It’s visually a joy to look at and you can tell that he has spent a long time on composing the drawings and charts to explain the subject matter in a very organized and visual way. The book is structured in a way that you can look up a subject by the letter - for example, “A” like Angle of View or Aspect Ratio and read and look at the explanation and the accompanying drawings. And the subject matter ranges from old analog terms to modern digital photography terms.  For example, you’ll find out how a bellow is used and how it relates to our modern macro extension tubes and Tilt-Shift lenses. And this makes this book a fun resource to explore for a photography beginner as well as a seasoned pro. This book will simply make you a more educated photographer. And it also inspires you to take action with photo exercises.  The eBook is $20 and the hard copy is $30. Or you can currently pick up both in a digital bundle special for $40. https://jefferysaddoris.com/photography-by-the-letter/ Jeffery picks: “Avedon’s France: Old World, New Look”   Hardback, 792 pages, Published by: Abrams & Chronicle Books Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2VAcHqh Publishers Website: https://www.abramsandchronicle.co.uk/book/9781419726002-avedons-france-old-world-new-look/   Richard Avedon was fascinated with France.

We Shoot Mirrorless #25 | PPN | Ricoh GR III, Lumix G95, Leica Q2, Fuji, Sony, Sigma, Huawei P30, and more
This show is loaded with new mirrorless camera hands-on experiences and news. For this show, Marco has invited back his friend, journalist, and reviewer of cameras and photographic equipment Angela Nicholson. This show is sponsored by:   Skylum Luminar3 - The cutting edge photo editor http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3   and   COSYSPEED - The fastest camera bags in the world. http://bit.ly/STREETOMATIC Angela flew all the way to Rome to test out the new Fuji X-T30 camera. The new X-T30 replaced the X-T30 and gains some features of the top of the line X-T3, like the 26.1 MP BSI sensor, the AF-joystick, and a faster AF. But some features as lacking from the big brother like the second SD-card slot, the high res EVF, and the dedicated ISO dial. Angela has used the camera and shares her experience with it and how it compares to the X-T3. Just after we were done recording, Fuji issued a FW 1.01 update to lessen the effect of the X-T30 “accidental Q-button engagement.” After installing and testing the Q-button update, Angela has added her findings at the bottom of the X-T30 review at CameraJabber.com: https://camerajabber.com/fujifilm-x-t30-review/   Fuji X-T30 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IpXtPa Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2NnJPLr Fuji released FW update 3.0 for the X-T3. The main improvements cover face and eye detect AF accuracy. Face AF priority has also been added - you can now select the face to focus and meter for when there are multiple people in the frame. And another improvement enables faster AF speed for subjects at a distance. X-T3 FW update on Fuji’s website: Fuji website: https://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xt3/index.html Fuji Camera Remote App for iOS update. With this update to App V4.0 Marco thinks that the software has finally been improved from “painful to use” to “somewhat usable.” Marco discusses in the show what he thinks is still lacking from the program and urges all camera manufacturers to invest more effort in the features and usability of their smartphone apps. “If they want to compete with the constantly improving cameras on smartphones, they need to make their apps to be desirable to use and easy to pair to multiple devices. Panasonic has released the Lumix G95/G90. Angela has had a hands-on with the camera and shares if this Lumix camera is more for the photographer, the videographer, or a truly 50-50 usable hybrid camera. Panasonic Lumix G95/G90 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2GuOg3T   Angela also had a longer hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix S1 and S1R cameras and chimes in with her experience and opinion of those cameras in comparison to other FF mirrorless cameras on the market. And she also shares if she would prefer the S1 or S1R in her camera bag. Panasonic Lumix S1 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Ip0pLK   Panasonic Lumix S1R B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IoT9zJ Ricoh introduced the new GR III camera. Both, Angela and Marco have tested the new compact mirrorless camera from Ricoh with its new 24MP APS-C sensor and newly rendered 28mm EFV lens. The rear LCD now is touch-enabled but there are a few things that Marco would have liked to see improved in this latest update to match this camera better to the target audience of street and travel photographers. Ricoh GR III B&H: https://bhpho.to/2GwfHdw Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2IEkOvN Leica has introduced the Q2. The updated Q still has the fantastic fixed 28mm f1.7 lens but gained an almost 100% bump in resolution with the new full-frame sensor moving up from 24MP to 47MP! With this higher resolution, Leica implemented a third native crop mode to the camera. Next to the 35mm (30MP) and 50mm (14.7MP) in-camera crop modes the added 75mm crop still produces a 6.6MP image. The electronic viewfinder was also updated from LCD to OLED and the capacity of the battery was also improved. But the update did not implement two of Marco’s “like to have seen” features of a tilt-LCD and dedicated ISO dial. Leica Q2 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Gv1pdl Sigma will make 11 of their Art lenses available for L-mount in 2019. This should make Lumix and Leica SL owners very happy because Sigma’s Art lenses are high quality at reasonable prices. The L-mount availability will include the 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 40mm, 50mm, 85mm, and 105mm f1.4 DG HSM lenses as well as the 14mm and 135mm f1.8 and the 70mm f2.8 macro ART lenses. And Sigma is also introducing the MC-21 mount converter that will allow some of their SA and EF-mount lenses to adapt to the L-mount system. Sigma L-Mount lenses and MC-21 adapter: B&H: https://bhpho.to/2GuR5Sx     Sony FW updates for a7 III and a9 cameras. The FW 3.0 for a7III and a7R III adds real-time Eye AF, Animal Eye AF plus interval shooting of 1-9999 exposures in 1 to 60 seconds intervals. The a9 FW 5.0 offers a new AI driven AF for better object recognition and real-time eye tracking plus some changes to the menu settings based on user requests.   Sony FW update website a7 III: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/e-mount-body-ilce-7-series/ilce-7m3#downloads   a7R III: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/e-mount-body-ilce-7-series/ilce-7rm3#downloads   a9: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/e-mount-body-ilce-9-series/ilce-9#downloads Huawei P30 introduction. Angela has tried the new Huawei P30 smartphone with 4 built-in cameras and lenses. This smartphone offers a lot of versatility and features for photographers. The low-light quality is very good and even the computational DOF simulation of an up to f 0.95 lens does an impressive job of rendering fine detail and correctly applying it sharply to the subject or blurred to the background. But the P30 does seem to have some color issues in 4K video mode due to the new RYYB vs. the traditional RGGB pixel layout. But this should be fixable in a future FW update. Huawei P30 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2GuSJnb Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2Vm5729 Mirrorless question of the month:   Hi! One question about RAW converter and workflow with Fuji. What's the best process to get from Fuji RAW to Lightroom? Directly import RAWs to LR? Convert RAW files with Adobe DNG Converter and then import dng in LR? Use Iridient (or others) instead of Adobe Converter?

Q&A #22 | PPN | When is it ok to work for free and when should you consider a full-frame camera over APS-C or m4/3?
Episode summary: Is there ever a time when it is ok to work for free as a photographer, and if so, when would you make that exception? And with all of the new fancy full-frame cameras on the market, when would you consider a full-frame camera over a smaller APS-C or m4/3 camera?   Please submit your photography related questions to us here: http://www.photopodcasts.com/contact.html This episode is sponsored by:   Skylum Luminar 3 - Supercharge your image editing and organizing http://bit.ly/PPN-Luminar3 Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:   Hi Marco, You have mentioned in the past that photographers should not work for free because images have value and there is quite a high direct cost involved with photography (like camera, lens, training, storage, software, computer, etc.). But would you consider to work for free for a charitable non-profit organization? I have been approached by a local organization and would like to hear your opinion if I should make an exception here? Love the shows! Regards, Soeren Question from: Soeren, Stockholm, Sweden Hi Marco, I enjoy your Podcast very much. I am considering the Fuji XT3, but you mentioned on your recent podcast that you would consider a full frame camera for large prints. So just how big can you print with the Fuji APS-C ( XT-2 or XT-3) cameras that you would consider museum quality? Especially, with the new algorithm in Photoshop to up-Res your pictures or even using On1 Software "Resize".

Marco has used a pre-production review unit of the S1R for a couple of days and shares the specs and some info on the usability and purpose of this camera.   Panasonic Lumix S1 B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Ip0pLK   Panasonic Lumix S1R B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IoT9zJ To go along with the new Lumix S1 cameras, Panasonic has also released three new lenses for the new L-mount. The S PRO 50mm f1.4, the S 24-105mm f4 Macro O.I.S., and the S PRO 70-200 f4 O.I.S. lens. Each lens fills an interesting niche in terms of focal length, weight, features, and price.   Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f1.4 lens B&H: https://bhpho.to/2InALHr   Panasonic Lumix S 24-105mm f4 Macro O.I.S. lens B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IqOopm   Panasonic Lumix S PRO 70-200mm f4 O.I.S. lens B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Ip0FdG Canon has countered the trend of making new mirrorless full frame cameras larger and introduced the compact entry-level EOS RP with a 26 MP sensor.   B&H: https://bhpho.to/2Ir5Rho Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2Vdcbux And Canon will bring out these 6 new RF-mount lenses in 2019:   RF 85mm F1.2 L USM RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS RF 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM RF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM (super compact!) RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM Angela shares her hands-on experience with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera and for whom this camera has actually been made.   Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera B&H: https://bhpho.to/2CEmWhH Sony has announced the a6400 APS-C that replaces the a6300. The compact 24 MP camera has been pimped with a processor and AF system that Sony claims is the world’s fastest autofocus. And with the speed, they have also added real-time eye AF and real-time tracking. This APS-C camera sounds like the cropped version of an a9, but we are wondering if the rangefinder style shape is really appealing for whom this speedy APS-C camera is targeted at?   Sony a6400 camera B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IDRpmr Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2SeBF8D Angela has tried and then bought the DJI Osmo Pocket camera with its built-in gimbal and 12MP photo and 4k60p video at 100Mbps feature.   DJI Osmo Pocket camera B&H: https://bhpho.to/2IscOi4 Amazon Germany: https://amzn.to/2TZVWR0 Mirrorless question of the month:   Hi! I mostly shoot weddings and families with a Nikon D750 and have an X-T10 for fun. I want to switch completely to the Fuji X-T2. There are other mirrorless brands but they just don’t interest me and I don’t want full frame due to the size of the lens. The one thing that is holding me back is the time between shutter actuation on the X-T10. I know Marco uses the X-T2 and was curious if he has noticed it on that camera. The X-T10 has a slight delay between shots and would not work in my professional work. Thanks in advance and I love all of your podcast.
