    Artists have been hit hard in the past 12 months of the pandemic. Yet some have managed to make the best out of the situation and created amazing new projects and ways to distribute their art. In this episode, we take a closer look at ways how artists can build up resilience through adaptation. Marco invited the artist and podcast creator Jeffery Saddoris to the show, for an inspiring discussion about this topic.     This show is sponsored by COSYSPEED: www.COSYSPEED.com and Luminar photo editing software: http://bit.ly/ppnluminar4    Jeffery Saddoris is a New York based artist who was born in California 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 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. After six years of co-hosting the popular podcast On TAkin Pictures, he now produces 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/ ). Inspirational Photographer of the Month: Jeffery picks Philippe Halsman (1906 - 1979) as his inspirational photographer of the month.

Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: “Once” by Wim Wenders Wim Wenders is not only one of the greatest minds of contemporary film - but he also manages to transform his art of poetic storytelling into photography. “Once” can be viewed as a visual travel diary that Wender’s captured during his trips around the world when he scouted out movie locations.

    Camera and Inspiration #33 | PPN | Can Photographers and Gallerists be friends? - with Bastian Hertel

    51:51

    In this episode, we take a closer look at the relationship between photographers and photo gallerists. 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.

    57:00

    We have received a lot of questions about finding photography inspiration during the dull and grey winter days.

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

    1:03:58

    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

    1:15:40

    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. Reeling from the impact of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and unable to make the distinction between American citizens of Japanese ancestry and the Japanese enemy of war, Adams' message was essentially lost on the American public.” The book is published by: Spotted Dog Press 128 Pages Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Born-Free-Equal-Japanese-Americans/dp/1893343057 Links to Scott Bourne: Web: https://scottbourne.online  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bourne.scott/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/scottbourne  Twitter: https://twitter.com/scottbourne  Podcast: https://picturemethods.com/category/podcasts/    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: 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.

    Q&A #25 | PPN |Best of PPN Q&A from 2019

    1:15:06

    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.

    1:02:02

    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? Question by: Christophe, Canada 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. If you want to join just let us know through the "request invitation" button on the group and drop us a quick line there. We'll add you to the group then.

    Camera and Inspiration #28 | PPN | How to get your photos into an exhibition - with Martin U. Waltz

    1:01:06

    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.
