Paper theme by Pixel Revel. 1 month ago A Lesser Photographer is a book, not a blog anymore. So, I’ve moved all my blogging over to my personal blog and newsletter. Please join me and see what new books I’m working on. 3 months ago Don't Follow Me Posted over on my personal blog, where I do most of my writing now. 3 months ago You Can't Do That With a Phone More over on my personal blog, where I’m doing most of my writing these days. 3 months ago Is Better Photography Inevitable? Posted over at my personal site,, where I’m doing most of my writing. 3 months ago There Will Always Be a Better Shot Posted over at my personal site, where I’m doing most of my writing now. 3 months ago Honesty Is Your Competitive Advantage 3 months ago The Romantic Locations Where A Lesser Photographer Was Written I stumbled across this book in the library recently, which appears to tap into a romanticism about the places writers create books and the places written about in the books. Photographers have it somewhat easy in this department. We can see where you were when the photographs were created. We get the vibe. But that doesn’t mean we get to see where the book is actually put together or written. In that sense, you’re in the same boat as writers. The reader can imagine what they want about that part of process, but no working writer or publisher I know has a romantic process or place for doing these things. It’s often sufficient to be away from screaming children for half an hour. Want to know where the A Lesser Photographer book was written? It was mostly written in this parking lot. And the final editing took place in this parking lot. How’s that for romantic? Get the work done anyway you can. Don’t be fancy about it. Just get it out there. 3 months ago Why You Need to Publish a Photo Book If I had one wish for photography right now, it would be for talented photographers to publish more books. Publish 5 or 1000 copies, but get it out there. Share what you’ve learned, even if the lessons you have to teach are lessons we’ve already learned. If they’re valuable, we need to hear them again and again. Too often photographers consider their end product to be framed prints or one-off Instagram posts. What would change about your photography style if you were forced to think in terms of a creating books? It would force you to think as a storyteller. That’s the greatest skill a photographer can cultivate. 3 months ago Reader Question: Too Many Limitations? Reader Jorge E. wrote in about my last interview: …After reading your last interview at Mylio and that, at the moment, you only use your iPhone camera, I am curious. Does that not limit yourself too much? I am not thinking so much about high ISO or depth of field, but particularly about focal length. Phone cameras always carry wide angle lenses, and you already know that that’s not the most recommended choice for portraits. Don’t you ever have the need to make a good portrait of your son with a short tele, so both of you will have a high-quality memory of what his face was like as a kid? Lens distortion really isn’t an issue for me for a few reasons. I don’t really do portraits in the traditional sense. I try to capture moments (or events) that are not necessarily just about fitting a face into a frame. I wouldn’t even notice the distortion (if it exists). Even if I did traditional portraits, it could be a great creative problem to solve, not necessarily a technical problem. Working with the gear you have is often a helpful constraint. Sometimes, it’s helpful in ways we can’t even imagine until well after the photos are made. When I look back at the most memorable pictures my parents took during my childhood, they were made with 110, 126-127 or disc cameras. They’re as messed up as photos can be, but it gave them a sense of time and place that is so special, iOS developers are churning out apps by the dozens to try to re-create the same effects. They can’t. It’s not a technical problem to be solved. I don’t really worry about the iPhone being inadequate for quality, since I measure quality by what the photo does to people, not technical aspects. I guess one could even worry about our modern photos being too good and having no character. But why worry at all? Life is too fleeting to get bogged down by it. It’s much easier to capture what’s fleeting with an iPhone and document your life instead of living to document. 4 months ago Professional Photographers Are the .1% How many professional photographers are there? The short answer is: no one knows for sure. We can make an educated guess, though. Just in the U.S., there are 124,900 professional photographers according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. That number is probably an under-estimate, due to the sampling method, so for our purposes, let’s double that number to include the self-employed and say there are around 300,000. Sounds like a lot, right? How many amateur photographers are there? Again, there’s no way of knowing an exact number, but we can make a guess based on the number of smart phone users. Smart phones are no longer phones with cameras, they’ve become cameras with phones. Sure, compact and film cameras still sell and may sell to those who don’t use a smart phone, but let’s be conservative and just count smart phone users for now. There are currently 206,567,692 smart phone users in the U.S. according to Pew Research Center. That’s 64% of the country. No doubt, that also includes professional photographers, so let’s subtract our 300,000 estimate of pros and it brings us to 206,267,692 people in the U.S. who own a camera, yet aren’t professionals. I think we’ve been overly conservative in our estimates so far (favoring the pros), but that still works out to only 0.14544% of camera owners being professional photographers. 99.9% of the camera-owning public in the U.S. are not professional photographers. The rules, techniques and gear of professionals do not apply to 99.9% of us. The amateurs run this industry. Never forget that. Page 1 of 47 Next ? Whois
