074 - One Hour Photo

It's spooky season, and, in this episode of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast, we take a look at a VERY creepy photography related movie, One Hour Photo. This 2002 Robin Williams film about a photo technician who becomes obsessed with a family takes us back to a time before digital cameras and phone cameras when many people were still getting film developed. I invited Josh from the For Nerds by Nerds Podcast to join me to take a look at this disturbing motion picture. We ponder how times have changed since this movie was released, both in the sense of how we as a society partake in photography and general societal norms.  There are definitely some things in this movie that would not play out the same way today. Want to listen along with our commentary? Rent or buy the movie from Amazon or you can currently stream on HBO MAX. Support the Nerdy Photographer Want to help an independent podcast?

On this very funny episode of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast, Steven Van Elk from the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast drops by to discuss photo industry 'code words'. Code words? What code words? The photo industry has code words? You know, the things that photographers and people in the industry like to say when they really mean something else. For example, when photographers use the term "unphotogenic" to describe subjects they personally don't think are attractive. Or terms like "challenging" or *shudder* "vibes"...

Backing up your photos should always be a priority, and in recent years, more and more cloud photo storage options have become available to photographers. But are they all worth the money? In this micro episode (nerdlet) of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast, I explore a variety of cloud photo storage options, their pros and cons, and whether you can use them for more than just backing up your pictures. Because, in this age of connectivity, having some versatility in your storage is also a must.

About My Guest "I moved to Chicago when I was 18 years old and started exploring my opportunities in the creative field. I didn’t know anyone so I knew it was the perfect opportunity to reinvent myself! As I continued my career in photography in a foreign country, many different opportunities started arising! One of the most important ones in my career, so far, was the Front Porch Project during the pandemic lockdown in 2020. I took this opportunity and created a project that, to this day, continues to create opportunities! I am happily married to my husband Travis and we are expecting our first child together. I will experience motherhood behind the lens and get creative to document each and every milestone in my child’s growth. I am an advocate of documenting milestones and printing them out; there is nothing like a printed picture. I continue to explore life creatively and offer my talent to non-profits as well as in a professional level." You can also follow Jackie on Facebook and Instagram.
Camera lens filters? What are they? What do you use them for? The most important thing to remember is that whatever filter you get, DO NOT GO CHEAP! Putting cheap glass (or plastic) between your lens and your subject just defeats the purpose of trying to take a better photo.
