New Year! New Podcast! New Format! Focus Ring is Back!

The Candid Frame Photography podcast is a member is The Photocast Network, a loose confederation of podcasts both in English, Spanish and German, all on the topic of photography. It's a great resource for some interesting and engaging shows on our favorite pastime.

We even have our own podcast, but the production of this had been pretty infrequent. So, now I've brought it back with a new format and a new idea.

Four photographers join the conversation with two of their own images to discuss a single topic. I think it will provide an opportunity to turn the conversation from equipment and software, to....wait for it...photographs. What a concept!

The first episode focus on "Shadow and Light" and brings together Jeff Curto (History of Photography & Lens Position), Chris Marquardt (Tips from the Top Floor), Martin Bailey and myself, Ibarionex Perello (The Candid Frame). If we get a good response to the show and format, I intend to continue producing the program once a month. Let me know what you think.

Ibarionex appears on APM's The Story

Happy New Year. I want to share an interview that I did with Dick Gordon of American Public Media's The Story, one of my favorite interview shows and a program from which I draw a lot inspiration. I share how my friendship with a counselor at the Boys and Girls Club of Hollywood introduced me to photography and changed my life. My story is shared in the second half of the show.
