Night Photography in the Rockies, with Rachel Jones Ross; OPTIC All-Stars Preview
On November 22 and 23, B&H will host the 2020 OPTIC All-Stars Conference, with a stellar list of outdoor, travel, and adventure photographers giving online presentations and, on this week’s episode of the B&H Photography Podcast, we are pleased to welcome one of those photographers: Rachel Jones Ross. Ross is landscape and night sky photographer based near Banff, in the Canadian Rockies, and our conversation with her is rife with practical tips for shooting in the mountains and with suggestions to improve your night photography. For starters, we speak with Ross about her workflow as it pertains to planning her shoots, which often require long hikes into the mountains. We discuss the apps she uses to gather information on weather, trails, and the night sky. We also ask about staying warm in sub-zero temperatures and find out that her most important piece of gear are her Heat Company gloves. From there we discuss basic (and not so basic) techniques for star and night sky photography, including tips on composition, focus, and focus stacking, including a handy “sharp star” filter for accurate focus. Because Ross is also a well-respected educator, we discuss transitioning to online workshops during the COVID pandemic, her “Night Photography in your Pyjamas” course, and she offers a preview of her OPTIC All-Stars presentation. We also discuss her go-to gear and how she decides which cameras and lenses to use for particular locations. Ross is a member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective and she relates her preferences for the various Alpha series cameras and when and why she’ll decide to use a Sony 16-35mm zoom lens or a Zeiss Batis 18mm or Zeiss Loxia 21mm lens. There is a lot of solid information as well as practical tips enmeshed in a very pleasant conversation with the wonderful Rachel Jones Ross.

TCF Ep. 539 - Hunter Barnes
Hunter Barnes is a documentary photographer whose work captures aspects of culture and communities ignored by the mainstream and often misrepresented in the modern American narrative. Hunter trained in photochemistry and traditional photographic techniques. At a young age, he began a nomadic life on the road. In his early twenties, Hunter self-published his first book, Redneck Roundup, documenting the dying communities of the Old West. Other projects followed: four years spent with the Nez Perce tribe; months with a serpent-handling congregation in the Appalachian mountains; bikers, lowriders, and street gangs; inmates in California State Prison. Intense, true pockets, and subcultures of America. The process is an integral part of Hunter’s work. He shoots exclusively on film—the pace of analog in harmony with his approach. Fundamental to Hunter’s work is the journey, the people, the place. Then committing them to film before they are greatly changed or gone forever.

Tara Workman - Finding Your Own Path in Landscape Photography as a Hobbyist
Welcome to episode 187 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast. This week on the podcast, I was joined by a hobbyist photographer known as My Bajan Eye on Instagram - Tara Workman. Despite her self-proclamation as being a hobbyist, Tara's photography is some of the best you'll find these days. It feels personal, unique, and has some really great qualities. Tara is a physician living in Portland, Oregon and she uses photography as a mental health break. She's also African American. Tara and I discuss some interesting topics this week, including: * Her start as a landscape photographer in the age of social media, * Photography as a hobby and the benefits to that approach, * Making time for photography as a person with a full-time job, * Finding your own path as a photographer and the powerful influence of social media, * Her transition to abstracts and smaller scenes, * Learning how to not care about likes on Instagram, * Being inspired by other photographers without copying them, * And, her experience as a black woman in landscape photography. Over on Patreon this week, join over 140 of your peers in supporting the podcast financially and listen to Tara and I talk about how photography taught her how to see beauty in the natural world. I hope you enjoy our conversations. For more show notes, to see Tara's amazing photographs, a listing of her recommended photographers, and ways to support the podcast, head over to my blog.

141 - Jesse Lenz
Jesse Lenz is a self-taught photographer and multidisciplinary artist. As an illustrator he has created images for the most well-respected publications around the world, including TIME, The New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and many others. He is the founder and director of Charcoal Book Club, Charcoal Press,_ _and the Chico Hot Springs Portfolio Review. From 2011-2018 he also co-founded and published The Collective Quarterly and The Coyote Journal. He lives on a farm in rural Ohio. Jesse just released his first photobook, entitled _The Locusts_, published under the imprint that he founded, Charcoal Press. Featuring black and white images that transport the reader to rural Ohio where his children run wild in the fields, build forts in the attic, and fall asleep surrounded by lightsabers and superheroes. The microcosmic worlds of plants, insects, animals, and children create a brooding landscape where dichotomies of nature play out in front of his growing family. The backyard becomes a labyrinth of passages as the children experience the cycles of birth and death in the changing seasons. The Locusts depicts a world in which beautiful and terrible things will happen, but offers grace and healing within the brokenness and imperfection of life. On episode 141, Jesse discusses, among other things: * His imprint, _Charcoal Press_ * His new book, _The Locusts_ * Learning how to be present * Being the singer in a heavy metal band * His ethos that if you want something you have to build it yourself * Creating community * Never having had a real job * Sustainable subject matter * If you build it, they will come Referenced: * Jonathon Levitt * Andrew Wyeth Website | Instagram | Facebook “The work that you’re making, it really should be the thing that you can’t wait to get out and do. It should be something that never feels like a job… if you do that you’re always gonna have work even if its the same subject matter over and over, because you’re infatuated with it. Infatuation and obsession is the superpower of the human race… and that’s where amazing things happen. Like, the Wright brothers were infatuated with flying and they did something crazy.”
