A couple years ago I did a podcast with Peachpit called Within The Frame. I did 20 episodes and still get weekly requests to do more. Until now I just didn’t feel the love I want to have for a project in order to sit down and do it. Now I have the love, and the time. So we’re launching a free video podcast called About The Image and it’ll be on the new Craft & Vision website when that launches next month.
But to create it, and get it off the ground with some momentum, I’m hoping you’ll be a part of it now.
The podcast is very much like the old Within The Frame podcast. Each week (roughly) I’ll feature a photograph and talk about it – the composition, technique, emotional and visual pull, as well as comments about post-processing. Not so much a critique as a discussion intended to provoke thought and learning.
If you’d like your photograph considered for the podcast, please submit it by email, but first, please make sure you send it to spec or we just can’t use it. Here’s the goods:
Horizontal images are best. I’m not saying we won’t use a great vertical photograph, but the horizontal images just fit this medium better. Size: 3000 pixels on the long side, sRGB, saved as a JPG around 80% quality so it’s good but not gigantic. Keeping the EXIF data in the file will be most helpful. Please don’t watermark it. We will use this image for the video podcast only and once it is used we will delete it. I promise. No rights grabbing here, just a chance to show some photographs from the people in this community and to talk about them.
Please include your full name in the image file name. Example: david-duchemin-1.jpg would be great. Otherwise we just lose track of them. Cool?
Please don’t send more than 2. Pretty please? But the 2 you send? Send them here: email@example.com
Thanks for being part of this. We’ll keep you posted about when the first one, which is a discussion of one of my own images and the sequence that got me there, is released.
*No restrictions about what kind of images – a photograph is a photograph. If I feel it’s worth talking about in a way that I can make educational, it’s fair game. If it’s inappropriate for this audience for some reason I’ll just refrain from using it.
Une superbe idée, quell beau projet David. Merci pour l’invitation, je le considères.
Just adding to the chorus of those asking for the podcast to be made available through iTunes as an enhanced podcast (photo included) as Martin Bailey does. Thanks!
For us film shooters, what info should we include along with the scanned image? Obviously the EXIF data in that case will only provide details on the scanner and software used to process it after the fact.
Thanks! And looking forward to the new podcast.
Lance, this thing is about the photograph. Don’t sweat the EXIF.
If you didn’t already have a title, “Don’t Sweat The EXIF” would be a good one.
Loved the old podcasts, and I have the same small request I made before: I hope you guys make it available on iTunes, so it can be easily downloaded using podcast apps.
Looking forward to this, but as Alvin and I have requested earlier: Please make it downloadable on iTunes!
Thanks for the feedback! I’ll bring the idea up with my elves, all of whom know this stuff more than me…
Hi David, that’s great news! Looking forward to watching that and… maybe i’ll find something to send you 🙂
PS. how is your leg? hope everything is OK now:)
