Oh creep that. Our topic today. Well, you're an expert at. Your. Of Monitor calibration, right? Now. First of August before we even get started I did mention you are a photographer and and that's why I love how data color a lot of companies. Hiring photographers to come in. Right. So we photographers talking to photographers. So you know. So especially where trade shows. I saw the mutual friend Jerry from hunts photo exactly Yep you know. So when somebody comes up to you at a trade show, let's see you with Gerry. And they ask you, why do I need to have my monitor calibrated? Talking to them. As Well just work for the company you're talking to them as a photographer end as an expert that happened works the company right right. Awesome yeah. Yeah. So it's You know. That's a great point. You know data color. We have a very technical people on staff but we also have. People who are very passionate about photography. and. I think I I kinda classify myself as someone who falls into the middle there but but you're right. When you have a question about a technical product, it's It's not a technical pursuit at that point. It's it's a, it's a creative pursuit, your helping. You know I have the opportunity to help people understand about. calibration in Color Management and I begin with it from a photographer's point of view not from pursuit. And I did check out some of your work and that's why I asked to hear you do a lot of. Interior design and you mentioned you were. Those one of the stuff you didn't pass. You did a lot of interior designing stuff. Yep. That's what kind of transferred you order photography. Yes. So my my background in school was a bachelor degree in architecture, which is kind of heavy on space design, interior design layout type of thing, and I've kind of you know my career before data color I owned business for awhile sold that. But before I worked for data color I sold that business with the intent of becoming it fulltime interior architectural photographer. So I did work with you know interior designers, architects AD agencies and builders to help them showcase their their work. Um Great and so just. Most of us as a photographer, you had children. Become the subjects exactly I. I would say. Love landscape photography but you know most of what I do these days is you document the lives of of kids might be. I. Learned the basics of photography from my father and he was very passionate about photography a black and white darker our basement growing up and you know. It wasn't that he taught me how to be creative photography taught me about the importance of of photography in someone's life. Documenting documenting time with your cameras is just an important pursuit and he really that was the example he had for me. So it was really cool to grow up with that type of influence and to have a black and white darker in our basement carrying up. So I saw. You know develop ally. You know the smells of the darker are very. Small. I don't miss you know get my hands wet with chemicals but every now and then it just. I get I get the itch to. go back to the dark room but. Very Very Fond Memories Fisher. Well. That's great. Well, let's talk about Baader calibration who, what is it? What is monitor calibration? Yeah. So you know for transition of thinking back to the to the dark room you know there were very Specific things that you need to do to get your chemicals working right and you had to be in certain conditions to to work properly. In the digital age you know we have we rely on on our monitors. So I mean, we're we're photographers we we need to have We we trust our eyes to perceive the world around us.

"He's educator and has shared his talents with many photographers. Please welcome Mike. macy AV. How are you big guy? Thanks for having me. It will thanks for coming back again. Your knowledge is always very very valuable. Thank you. Know, our topic is GonNa be understanding. Studio Lighting Grand I can't think of a better person to talk about a lightning in the new. You're like a master. Thank lighting that not just in Hollywood, but on your personal projects. Thank you, thank you I. Appreciate that well. Let's start off. What are the different kinds of lights? Well, you use studio strobes. You know the big stroke boxes that you put your umbrellas on. Always use while not always usually done in a studio because of the output. Then you have little speed lights that you put on your pop flash on top of your camera. More portable battery powered. Oh then you know, then you have a variety of other types of lights, you can use from available light with Latino. Lighting discs to loon cubes whatever whatever it takes to get the job done. Exactly and you never shied away from any type of light. From natural light to strobes, even instead of one point of flashlight for God's sake, it's still light, Yup! Now. The difference of course is the quality of life versa quantity of light. And now with that being said. You know. Someone starting off for the first time. Let's go back. To a new photographer finally getting into lighting. What gear would you recommend that they buy? And what mistakes do you feel that some of these? Newer? Photographers Tronto lay make I know I'm one of them that made that the very beginning. Well I'll go back to when I was when I was in college. Learning lighting you. When we were using studio strobe back then we were using Norman. speed license strobe heads were the head would have a cable and the plug into a box. It was Baulky, but they were They were built, really well took the abuse of students, and It was a good learning tool, and I think the biggest thing that a lot of photographers. Are Scared of our shadows. So they'll get their one light with an umbrella, and they don't understand a theory of light, the bigger the light modifier, the softer the light, so when they put their standard thirty two inch umbrella on a strobe head. And they're going to you. Take a picture. Oh, wait a minute and others shadow I gotta get rid of the shadow. Let's out another light. Okay so the second light than the another shadow, and then they they over light it too many light, and you never get with with what they have. Until. They learn technique. They'll never get rid of the shadows in. They're scared. Shadows yet wanted a big things I. Try to teach is shadows at depth. In lighting. And we live in a three dimensional world I mean the. You you create depths through highlights and shadows. Shadows are a good thing now. If you're not getting details in the shadow, then you have to bring the details out, and there's a lot of ways of doing that, but for a beginner I would I would recommend. though the speed light little pop flash, you put on your cameras cheaper. I would invest in a studio strobe. Head with a couple modifiers, assuming you have a place to shoot like your garage or bedroom or somewhere and learn light in that environment because you'll learn how to control the light hot feather the light what different modifiers will do? Great I know when I first started. A An engineering buddy of mine was also photographer was all excited and. He convinced me to by Hensel Lights. Now Hansol's are like the Cadillac and Ferrari of lights german-made extremely expensive. Had I had to do over again I. would about Lesser Expensive? Lights. What's your take on that I agree, I agree one hundred percent as a professional photographer where you have to always consider your overhead and cost. I know pro photo. Is the. The big name out there right now. All the photographers are using the pro photo brand. But I gotTa Tell Ya. I've been using policy buff products. For over twenty years I started with their alien B.'s shooting on. Jag switched over to their. Einstein's and now I'm currently using their digital he's. and I I love him. Their customer service is fantastic. And I can buy three heads and several light modifiers for the cost of one. Tro photo head alone without any modifiers, so that just tells me. I'm a better businessman while. It is true, and then some people might say well. The light looks a little watery, or it's this or that you know what we have such a a wide variety of diffusion. Diffusing material, gels of stuff so when someone tells me that I? Don't agree with it because. it's it's just a matter of knowing how to use the light and I would rather put that extra thousand bucks in my pocket. And apply it to something else rather than to have a big name on the studio and believe me. There are a lot of well known photographers using the policy buffs equipment. but they're they're. They're very reasonable, and the big thing is the customer service is fantastic. Interesting now it's funny. You're saying that because of the Policy buff and alien be. They never endorsed for talking for the that something. They don't do I'm pretty sure I don't i. don't remember ever seeing anyone endorsed by him. They use them. They you finally following. That allow no this. I love the skier and like you said. You know they're so inexpensive. Now you're, did you? Bees are the battery operated or the? Oh, I got to have power I I have to find power plug them in extension corridor a portable generator. On the on the sets were on location. They have what they call Putt. PUTTS which are those little Honda two thousand. A, what generators so we'll get one or two of those assigned to us.

Heavy Metal? Not Us.
"All right. I had to actually check that I hadn't done an episode on this before. Because it's a perfect episode, the kind of thing that I thought I would have done early on So this is episode four. We're going to call this heavy metal, not us. Okay, so the idea here is. We're going to be talking about the concept of bans that aren't particularly heavy metal bands that, for some reason, end up making amazing, amazing heavy metal when they get to it and possibly why that might happen you know the idea to do this I've always thought this concept and debated it with a lot of people, but I was actually on earlier today on Pete Pardo's sea of tranquility, and we were doing a deep cut dive on bluest her cult, and it kind of rambled around to this this topic. And he said this was a great example of that and I was thinking, is it a great example of that is definitely an example of that. But I, but I kind of got to thinking that bluish are cult complicated case, but there are other bands that are even better examples of this so I thought. That will be my next episode. So this is how this came about now I, want to give you a little history on this idea, so you know essentially we're not. We're not here to to debate bands like For example there are bands throughout heavy metal, history, or whatever rock history that don't consider themselves. Heavy metal bands that do a lot of heavy metal. Classic example is when Lemme gets up there alive and says we're motorhead. We play rock and roll right. Little More Lemme later maybe but also black Sabbath talk. We're blues, Band and deep purple you know, says various things you know where we're at Jan, were progressive, rock band. We're jazz, rock band, red jazz band whatever whatever sort of floats their boat, but they usually don't say we're a heavy metal band. Now more in of these examples later on, but to go right back to the beginning. You know it's interesting that this concept you know. Mike, my good friend, Ralph Chapman. We always have these debates over Banger, or we did when we were there in these meetings to put together these shows and stuff where where it's always like the Beatles did everything I well so. Here's an example of this happening so in a way. Helter skelter is an example of kind of doing this I and I interviewed Paul McCartney back for my Queen Book Awhile Ago. And after we were done talking about queen you know I. I asked him a few other things and We were talking about helter skelter, and this is what he told me. I think that heavy metal came out of a desire to rock into rock, big and dirty and loud, and for that you don't have to have rules you talk about what made us do. Helter skelter desire to rock, dirty and loud, and when I listened to it now I think Oh. Gosh I thought it was louder dirtier than that? Because Times have changed, but I think it's just that if you're in a rock and roll band, and your soul is anchored in the Sea of rock and roll and you want to do it, you WanNa participate to your fullest. Fullest and sometimes that means being dirty. Being loud guitar are famous for turning up to eleven, and that's very understandable. Desire I. Mean I still now when I get with my band. We're at a soundcheck just strapping on my electric guitar, kicking it a pedal tearing it up. That's the spirit that kind of goes through rock and roll. You know it's a thrill anyone who has ever owned an electric guitar and put it through. An amp knows that thrill so I think that's where it all came from the desire to just thrash out. That's why we did helter skelter. Now. This doesn't include kind of the back story about Pete Townsend, saying you know where the loudest heaviest band in the world and Paul McCartney's natural. You know competitive nature to to compete with with the WHO and a and this is kind of this narrative. That they were trying to out heavy. The WHO so here's a band who's not a heavy metal band by any stretch of imagination. Just saying right, you want heavy metal. Let's let's give you some heavy metal I seem to recall I might have talked about this in another episode, but but excuse me in that pursuit, because some of these bands that we're gonNA. Talk about here. I have talked about another APSOS, but I'm going to be talking about specific specific to this concept. So, hopefully we'll be a You know a different dynamic when we're talking about these bands now. One other quote before we get to our first one, this one even more infocus a puts together this concept, so this is from Scott. Gorham from thin. Lizzy and I've always loved this quote. and we're GONNA include thin. Lizzy later on, but we'RE NOT GONNA. Do this song in honor of. Basically Scott Gorman thin, lizzy. We're going to include thin lizzy, but they fit perfectly anyway so. We were talking about Angel of death, which is which is a a very heavy metal song on the renegade album from nineteen eighty-one. He says yeah, absolutely bub-bubba calling weather sucks. We never We never ever put ourselves in the medal stakes. We always consider ourselves hard rock band, which to me just entails a little bit more in the songwriting side, rather than just heavy metal guitar riffs going constantly through all the songs, but yeah, we did not want to go down the metal road to us. The metal thing and I don't mean this any. Any disrespect to any of the guys, but it seemed a little corny to us, so we tried to avoid that side of it, and plus we knew that there were a lot of guys out there. That did that kind of John, well, but it was just one of those tracks where we recorded it. Listen back to it and for a time there. It wasn't one of our favorites. But yeah if anybody actually called. US, heavy metal, we would actually jump all over them, and the correction would start there, you know. We considered ourselves in absolute hard rock band, but definitely not a metal band the difference between the two genres. Band, it all depends on the riff drum groove in the guitar riff, whereas with hard rock, it's all about the groove and the lyrics and the melody the song and that's why we went out of her way to explain that we are a heavy metal or are. We are a rock band. And then fill linnet, said That's one of the facets of You know what I was just told Interesting side note by one of the listeners I always said Phil Line it for years and years and years, and then I was corrected, and said Phil Lynnette for years and years and years, and now I've been corrected again with a little bit of proof that it is in fact, fill line at Because he says that Phil used to say when he was correcting people, he would say line it. Why not? So there you

I try to will these different things, but also do tried spot so whether or not you're actually came to be leveraged. Try to in the market out of the market frequently you can certainly use strategies just to manage your portfolio for example the weekly timeframe there are some epic weekly pullbacks at the moment weekly trade. I Ford I dialing that sort of thing try to be being for. Wake so possibly even months there's been some great all moves popping off left front and center against Bitcoin Antenna. This is what I do. It's not just Dallas futures contracts with tx watch. It is about getting people into the market, so they can manage their portfolio a lot better. You can try these strategies on any timeframe that you actually like it doesn't make a difference so welcome to the new members, and for all of you out there. This requires a huge amount of Tom. InFocus low talk frames at hectic. It's not. It's about managing a portfolio well and coming in and out of the mock as you say opportunities rows over here and over here for example link a couple of weeks back or look fantastic I bought link a manage my portfolio. I bought link. Link went up excellent when I hit. My target are sold out of link moved back to Bitcoin, fear him, and you can build your portfolio in that why it's not always crazy, leverage toxic and leverage a margin. It's not crazy. It's really easy. As a matter of fact, I've got a video on Youtube. How to go long using managing your risk and also. Yesterday about how to go short as well so it's not complicated. It does take some time to learn a tykes some focus. Because what's going on in the market right this second. Tell you. The biggest winnow the biggest moves on on Banco as far as trade's guy. We had a beautiful little cradle. Becker was the twenty eighth of June whether it's bank. Who Against Ted, A. Bank or against Bitcoin both have moved quite Nassir. Think it looks like maybe about one to one or close to. What's Beta? Fantastic trends threat. The months of June again high at timeframe tried. They're looking to build your sat's ability. Which of course you can invest how you'd like, but across the top ten. Gee, WHIZ! There's not a lot going on still still. We've been open for the last one. How many hours now? Six or seven hours tonight and Bitcoin is flat. It's pretty much exactly where it closed yesterday. More or less, there is a small bearish candle, and it is in that cradles on. A great daily downtrend, if we broke the lows of nine thousand and fifty well then show, we might see more of a downside full bitcoin. The big level may is getting through nine thousand, and then down through the most recent low, which is eighty, eight, hundred, Fifty, eight, thousand, eight, hundred fifteen. Until we break that level. We really have a good downtrend. There's really not too much certainty in the market at the moment volumes. Damn people are not as interested as there's less people. Acting as far as getting involved in Bitcoin but like I said a lot of clients now. During the courses and learning how to try perfect on a dope. When it does pop off, you'll have you'll have this strategies. You'll know what to do so is up nine dollars. Nine, thousand, one, hundred, forty, five in theory up twelve cents, two hundred and twenty five dollars, and sixty full sent Siamese bitcoin nays, bright yesterday's law, and then it needs to break down to seventeen thirty two for really have a bit more space as a matter of fact, he's of that to fourteen seventy three x out of being short of the last few days. Let's say what. It still below my entry point, but it is really sluggish is very very sluggish, indeed Adine, struggling to find any real strong momentum. Yesterday we did have good momentum. It did four quite nicely. hit a low of seventeen point three cents when trading at seventeen point five its up point two three. percent, but the simplicity's gone today. It's the market doesn't know what it wants to do. At this moment, Bitcoin cash big crazy candle a few hours ago. I was at three hours ago. We had a high of that candle sitting at. To. Order Twenty three, twenty, six and low, two hundred and twenty dollars and seventy, so basically like A. Candle that was a very crazy looking whip. Their third locked ice holds a candle. There have been walled that difficult to try, and it's really wrecked the structure there are on bitcoin cash that being said it easy in a down trend. More or less it easing that cradles, and if it does break down three yesterday's low of two hundred twenty dollars fifty, we might see further selling coming in here, but again it's not really join us at. Percent to twenty four thirty five base is one, and I'm looking at very closely for potential short tried the level of looking at his one, fifty, five eight. It's got to do more work for a short trade there for Bitcoin Brad yet, but as trying is working into that level, and it's consoling very very well as a matter of fact, spanking solar, adding for how many days at that point we've got three full days of that is a strong downtrend. It did have that big full on Sundays at one, fifty seven and fourteen cents down half a percent.

We can make this really slick easy to use APP. That just works really well and does one thing and does it well and that was what we wanted to tackle was this idea of of of live streaming really now a lot about live streaming gumming in like a really really cool thing to do. Well you guys definitely nailed it not ballpark So what are we talked about? Some of the features of Kim live now from my perspective. I can see from a designing phase. It's really simple to use. How did you guys come up with that? We wanted to do this. Sort of what you see is what you get interface. You know what I mean like when you go into can live you see. The main window is just an image of you of you. You know you whatever you see on that man windows exactly what your audience is. GonNa see so. That was the first thing we wanted to approach. We also wanted to have it really tightly integrated with facebook and in and then afterwards we added Youtube. It was originally thought of as a facebook product where with live streaming. I'm sure you're familiar with the concept. The best stream key and what a bit rate is and what you know. Resolutions and stuff. We wanted to sort of abstract that really sort of apple style. You know what I mean and say like we don't want people that need to notice Jim he is or what their bit rate is. We want to ask them questions like like that. We just want us to have a big blue button after you log in the facebook and you can go live on. You definitely definitely accomplished. I came from. I'm trying to think of the the platform now. It's a free software. I had a tip of my tongue. I lost it but so for three. One opiates Oh bs thank you. Yes yes yes. It's yes it's great but again like you just said you have to know your stream key. You have to know a lot of the stuff behind the scenes and that's just a little complicated and once you get the hang of it. It was fine but it looked to me like you took no. Bs Concept and just laid beautiful interface on top of it and said you don't need to know any of this other stuff. Click here if you WANNA go live. Click here if you want to just practice and publish it to yourself. So you know there was a lot of neat things. I've noticed for ease of use the way it was designed that that was a that was a big focus and then but then. I you know it started out really simple. The core feature is going live to facebook. Rolling prerecorded videos adding overlays and And screen sharing so those were the core features and then. Ironically you know when we started you know building a user base week people were were asking for features like crazy and we decided you know. Let's have some fun start having let's try and keep it really simple. You know not not make it into this big overwhelming. Why are cast or obese or something like that keep the interface really simple and yet still make it more and more powerful so now three years later it is has grown into this sort of full featured live streaming studio in. Our hope is that it's still. It's still easy to use and we didn't intimidate anyone no but multiple cameras which I thought was fascinating. I like the idea. You've ever boat gas via skype. So and I know we're using the software where we're using it more like a Webinar base. Where I'm teaching and I know you said in the beginning you ought to use it. So people can show demos and show to Tourelles I'm finding able to use it as a production to where I can't have. A couple of guests would be live from all over the country and they could share their demos so I switched to somebody like Abbas Shapiro. And so you know it's your turn. Show us what you would do with this image and Aiba takes over the screen and now all of us are watching his demo and then control come back to me and that I could switch it off to another person now. Was that stuff that you thought about the beginning or it just evolved into it. That kind of Kennedy came along a just kind of a bald The integration with SKYPE IS NEAT. Because it's it's it's not really it's not a hack at all skype. Has this concept of sending out the video sources of over the over an MD. I connection so we can tie that. They're Li seamlessly and like you said if if someone else's remote and they wanNA share their screen over skype that comes into ECON lab just like a camera. So you know you you plug a camera in Birmingham live at shows. Up this medically the same thing happens for a skype guest orest Guest sharing their screen so while there are kind of moving parts to the setup of doing Escape production once you have it all set at. Its It's pretty seamless and easy to switch around and punt and split screens and determine what we've what you want to be on the screen at any given time

"Have had rather positive and supportive breath feedback from our audiences and I think that that really has just reinforced. What we what we did and why we did it? People understand that now. Are People sign up online for a subscription or house. How's the how's that going? It's not actually going to be a digital magazine. It's just so it's not gonna be formatted added so that it looks like a magazine online. It's just going to be set up as articles and information so they will be able to go to it at any time and find what they're looking for. Three of it is oh so no and for listeners. Just like photo focus. You know. It's a free online information for photography photo. Focus it's Inspiration inspiration for creative digital storyteller and we all have to make a living so in that case that that's where sponsors and you pull people in for advertisers so people with with new range finder hub digital help you guys are creating the content is going to be free. You know the shift through the different ads and things along those lines. What works so great? Oh yes it does. You're right. Focus is very similar in how they sent out information to their readers as well Yup and and the difference between the two I could see where range finder. You're also GONNA be a news outlet when certain things are happening in the industry which talk about that and our next question. The state of the industry is a home Where whereas you know we we we kinda stay away from you? Know the the the news so to speak you know like This manufacturer closes and so on if it affects our readers that we we right but if it's just news that that's that's a different outlet so with the with you as a content creator. How do you see the state of the industry as a whole I while based on what we're seeing from the attendance at our shows I know a lot of people are saying. The industry's industry is really suffering. Because manufacturers like Panasonic and Olympus seemed to be in trouble as Nikon but I see he added growing because our numbers are growing. And we're seeing more photographers signing up to go to our conferences which shows that people still I don't WanNA learn. They want to see the gear at the trade shows. They WANNA go to the classes to understand what they need for their business and for their talk skills so I see it as being more positive than I know. Other news outlets have been reflected. Yeah you know. And that's one thing is we. We pushed it for so long about education education education. And if you're real is is really serious about wanting to start a photography career. You'd need to invest in education. It's ironic like will use. News Lawn. Mowing is when we were children. And you WanNa make a quick buck your father or mother would say well go by the lawnmower in custody long. Now keep in mind. I came from Italian Catholic family. So that guilty guilt was you. You didn't do it for free free so my father was also. He was a deacon around but it was also he was also an accountant so he was realistic. Instead Robert Charge a fair my mother. My mother-in-law other hand would say well how much do you charge them and you would tell her she would say okay. We'll five bucks. We'll hear Gimme two fifty fifty for the church now. My father was shaking his head like serious but but when we were children that was the easiest thing deliberate. Exactly borrow your parents more. And then I've actually had friends back. Then that got excited and started getting so many clients they bought a riding low. Wow that was fantasy. You know an and you're like holy to decide. How far do you WANNA? What a great with photography? The same thing has happened. It's so easy. The bicameral for under five hundred bucks people can actually get into you for now. The trick is you have to have the education that goes along with it and I wrote an article on is formal education Asian necessary and there was a twist to it and the concept wasn't just formal education but education itself so whether you go to trade shows like WPI whether you read articles on a range finder or photo focus the concept. Is You have to further registration. You can't just reinvent the wheel drone. I'm sure you've heard this over the years you know people would say well. I'm an artist. I don't let other people influence influence my creativity serious. You know you gotta get the basics. That's why a lot of artists artists have students. Recreate you know Simple things like a a picture of a fruit basket or they have them copy other are so they get the idea down the strokes down and then you branch off so I could definitely see where this new hub of the digital hub creation. Shen is going to be great for the industry because now as a whole we have more people taking photos but with less expensive absolutely late and we've been seeing we see that over the years at WPI as well because you see people cycling out. They'll come for three or four years. There's and then you don't see them again. It's a lot of the reason is because they haven't been able to sustain a business and because they haven't had enough half of a background and enough education to learn about what they need to do which is one of the reasons we offer so many classes and another reason why they are online content will be very strong because we're pulling from what's being taught at W. PPI and also writing about that on long range. Finder online awesome. All right so w is GONNA be February. Twenty third the twenty right could that's mustangs and actually our whole photo. Focus team is going to be there. Rich Harrington our our publisher. Yep Yep he's teaching the event but what he's also doing on the weekend before the event starts is he brings in all the The the writers for photo focus. And we have Katrina and so for two solid days. He you know we. We brainstorm ideas He is an ethnic class. An ethics class class on writing and what our responsibilities are focus. So it's Kinda cool then. We also sponsor a reader's breakfast which is pretty recall so I think we we limited to fifty fifty people. We take him to a good friend of mine. He runs the the Bayside Buffet. Mandalay go yes. So he runs that and then It's so funny with Ritchie. He treats we sit down with people they get a free breakfast and we picked her brain. And we're and we're they want to focus folks go and ideas and I think leave Levi is also hosting a photo so we use WPI to reenergize all the instructors and of course offer no extra things to complemented WPI. That that you cashews the show as a place to reinvigorate your creativity. Yes definitely and I the me personally. I'd gone to Las Vegas for the last twenty plus years. No sorry I've been there over twenty and Gambler. I don't drink so so oh to me you know. It's we get in. We work with the people there with the attendees we have a great time. We want on photo shoots. We hit the desert And it's a great way of networking and building. You know long friendships with skip in fact would skip Cohen. We were there in skips out of the Deli Sleep. You and I live in the same state. Let's set up a time. We're GONNA have a guys weekend so next so so next year at this time. We don't say hey we should be together soon. Let's let's set it up right now. We did And so it's kind of NEAT. Just the the bond the friendship you you create lead over over the years with a and obviously you have the same connection with with skip you know all those years ago right exactly but a one of the main things that I love about. WPI as the community that it's created over the years. I mean I've got I know of at least six couples who met and got married because so and you know every year you've got people that met the year before for the first time and then they roomed together the next year when they come back to the show so that's for photographers. Eighty percent of photographers work by themselves. So this is a really okay. Great opportunity for them to meet people like they just like them who were trying to achieve the same goals and have the same love for for the craft. That's great he charlene.

The evolving photography industry, with Arlene Evans
"Our topic as it will be how conferences and major photography magazines are changing in the industry. Now before we do that. I know you're an amateur photographer. So how did you get involved like this. Whole photography conferences in mm-hmm magazines? Well I was living in Los Angeles at the time which is where. WPI was headquartered in the mid. Two thousand cents and I was friends with the gentleman you know named Skip Cohen. He was he was president. WPI at the time and the director of WPI's left and he asked me if I would be interested in taking the position because he wanted someone on who wasn't really involved in the professional photography industry sort of a neutral party to come in with fresh eyes and little little. Did I know that fifteen years later I would still be in this industry but I said yes. So was you know. SKIP SKIP incredible judge of character. So that's a lot for you. Thank you know. And he always has a way of thinking outside the box and try to bring somebody in in a position. Bishen that you have that doesn't that's not a full-time professional photographer. I think speech volume. There's no ego involved old. You're looking at it with a fresh set of eyes. And I. I just think it's a great. I'm out of time. So congratulations for that. Well thank you very much I. Yeah that's great so let's talk about the events that are happening now. I'm you guys just announced a major bomb show. What was that? Yes we announced announced that the PDF brand was going to be retired. And with that was We were discontinuing the publication not not only magazine but range finder. As well you'll still have range finder the digital format. That's correct where we're we're going to be creating all the content now on range finder online dot COM We are actually in the process of redesigning the website to better. How's the information that we want to put on there now? We want to expand coverage we WANNA cover industry trends gear and not only what's happening in the wedding portrait world but other areas of photography as well so that we can better her serve our customers the photographers who have been very faithful to the range Finder magazine since the nineteen fifties. So that's a really exciting. You know it's funny because some people look at that as a negative. Oh my Lord. I can't believe this. PDF when they're no longer having print publication will think of all the major Magazines not just the photography world but outside of the photography world that are switching to digital. Just it makes sense. It's cheaper you can make changes to it immediately And we get things out to the public faster so I'm looking at this kind of a positive step. How do you as a content creator yourself? How does this? How does this affect you were were were you? How are you looking from your perspective? Well it it's going to be a big job because as you know putting putting out. A monthly magazine is very different than creating content on a daily basis. Where you're going to keep photographers will want to come? I'm there and learn the latest of what's going on in the photography industry and We really try to on top of that with both magazines. But now we were. It's GonNa be a fresh look. It's going to be fresh perspective we've discovered through surveys and you will know this as well younger photographers take in their information from social media or online whether it's youtube or the looking at facebook to see what other photographers they're doing the reading their news on CNN dot com. So we're just trying to be not cognizant of what our readers want and they want to get their information online hole that makes sense to pdf N.. What shift to different magazines yet? PD had range finder. That's what was the difference between the two well. PGN was focused more on commercial. Fine Art Photographers. It was a very different. There was Assam overlap but it was more Commercial photography whereas range finder started as a wedding republication then expanded into wedding portrait and as you know. Portrait now has really taken off a so many different genres whether it's boudoir pants. It's just not the typical family portrait anymore that you think they're just so many different areas in portraiture sure so range. Finder has also got along with those trends as well so it really was a different focus than PD N. Gotcha that makes sense. And then that's where you have the different groups which you have. WPI as a conference and then photo plus so you had WPI on the the west coast of the United States and then you have photo plus the east coast of the United States so did try do info plus on the west coast once a long time ago and they did at work so they is definitely the best place to have federal plus Gotcha Crepe I so without Canadian with that part of the publication gone. Where do you see the what you see that being integrated with range finder or other things? You're doing well. The content is not going to go away way What we're going to do is look at all the content we've had over the years from pgn and we're going to take what was meaningful meaningful from that and disperse it to the other side so whether it will live on photo plus dot com range finder online or WPI VPI that content will still be there as because it's still relevant and we WANNA make sure that people still have access to it? It's interesting you go back to twenty cornell for example you go back to some of his books he saying the same thing he said all all those years ago but he's saying the different and a fresher with a fresh voice and people are like. Wow I didn't know that in here thinking really. He's been talking about this. A how many years but but Tony has that way of taking the knowledge and disseminating it to a new generation as a a little bit. He's he's great at it and I think that there's something to be said for the teachers that have been around around for years and they have such an expanded knowledge base. And all they're doing is cultivating a new audience. The younger photographers is who may not necessarily have access to season photographers. Who have worked in the industry for years at know how to to apply these concepts and ideas that they're teaching? You can't get that necessarily from a youtube instructor. Who is going to talk about? Things is that they've only had experience with for two or three years.

"You're listening to InFocus interview sick. This episode is made possible by our partners William Welcome I'm Bonelli my guess for the InFocus episode is a well respected please welcome Andrew Cava Hey Andrew how you doing glad to be here Bonelli in facebook groups you've done this for how long now we just passed nine years October you're now what what are some of your tips somebody's just starting out and they WanNa host Maynas Photoshop light room which also incorporates the photography industry absolutes the photography world so kept Photoshop and and even though I got smarter after at least a couple of years and got more admins and moderators had the idea of creating group not just about Photoshop Light Room photography share knowledge and experience with people who really wanted to learn full video tutorials and I invited people who also create a video tutorials as it builds facebook gives a little bit of help when you hit the I believe let's create now a couple of things first of all I mean you're doing this for passion you mean like how can they monetize yeah while so for you know hinting that or asking about that and I was just kind of balancing it reach out to various people in the industry say to have an affiliate program an affiliate and so I said absolutely and so to be transparent promote so there's still the passion behind but but I do make a little bit of a commission on certain things right and when you when you buy you a free APP from the APP there's reasons why they do it they have to and there's nothing wrong with that one thing I do take things down to where you're like you know what sorry I don't believe in this anymore so you've stepped away from that and that's and that's a lot about your character apples that people aren't asking me with like a size of my group hey can you promote from it I'm just thinking this is sincere I like what you've done in the past so I'd I balanced that with some of my affiliate promotions but so every Tuesday just came out this morning every Tuesday I will have my way of saying here's someone I believe in who does great work and it could be someone who's what makes the newsletter kind of exciting for me is I always feel like I'm bringing talk graffiti in the next week could be someone who does like surrealistic photo composite he's worked on various like movies like movie posters done a lot for the movie industry and entertainment industry in General Street and I mean you of course you make a living being a tutor and a photo editor took photoshop and they need a tutor well who better to ask the in the group we are bit strict bought about not letting people do a lot of self you always want the group to be very responsible and so if we let people who responsible for like well we found him in your group and he did crappy work or so when we make certain judgements about the group it's it's only because we time I do have a facebook business page which has more it also promote things in general there too but but the business pages more where yeah the well that's the great part is you know you you have this group and you're first time too and a lot of other people I have been going to the not in Berkman Roy we've seen a few times but this was the first in Adobe Max is coming up very soon weekend so oh yeah he he used to be an advocate for my group in fact okay so the photo plus expo and we hung out with one of our mutual friends case and I think it was like two o'clock at night is when we finally got to beat up with them and yeah well respected Photoshop instructor in once videos that we produced with Matt Hayward.

"They do this whole procedure less than thirty minutes really so try to seen a bunch of martial arts champions that were very competitive laying out the red of the table and we ran. We sweat coming off of us. We got a dud and he goes. Wow you guys are already done. I said what are you talking about whose house just kidding they're so but I knew you could never pass channel cello but that was you're looking at close to twenty five thirty longer God. I'M GETTING UP IN AGE over thirty years years ago if not longer and is so neat that my friends still remember that am I father invoke change with them how they how they felt feeding feeding the homeless just that feeling that gave that to them so for myself yes. I've tried to take on some of his passion and I have a a new series coming out hopefully the next year year and a half about the homeless. I've had my moments is the title and I'm hoping that that's going to help. Bring people to the table to help feed the homeless locally so I see what you're saying about. You know find a passion and once. Do you have that passion. You know get other people involved you. Them excited into that passion so it oh I was just going to say and and it might sound hard to understand because we're we're. We're talking in theory. We're just talking conceptually about this and so someone who's listening might might thank you know okay but I don't really understand what I should do if I want to be you know help the homeless for example or be helped or bridge social divides. I don't understand what I should do it. My my response is you. Don't necessarily need the package suggestion from somebody with a bow on it. I think it it starts with decision to ask yourself the question question. How can I be helpful to people based on where I am. What I have what I love to do especially with what you love to do and just the asking that question turns your brain onto a different channel and answer start coming because you know the people that are in your every day and the people that that you interact with it could be as simple as just a scheduling ten extra minutes on a commute so that you don't have to rush and if somebody and if you come across somebody you can actually stop and talk just really simple. Thanks so hello and I I would the the thing I would say. Is that once you start doing that this all of this becomes not conceptual it becomes very real and authentic authentic and tangible in your own life and you're and you it blows your mind and you start just seeing so much that you didn't see before and expands your opportunities and your perspective perspective and it changes you ultimately to be a better person and human that can be of service to others and so if if it's hard to know what to do or where to start what I'm saying is start and you'll you'll see exactly what happens question. and I'll give you my one of my examples and you'll tell me were heading with this. you gotta one motivated right now to help the world change so what are some tiff we can use to get our message out due to involve or to help others invoke this world change and I'll give you one example. It doesn't have to be huge. It doesn't have to be like the stuff that you've done overseas or what my father has done. It could be a simple little photo. You take on facebook in fact the example. I'd like to share it is I. I am blessed that I have a lot of great interns with incredible hearts and one of my current interns. His name is Jason. He's he's also a fireman well. We got done having a breakfast meeting and when we have breakfast what we do is we film like coffee and photography Villian friends so we liked it a little filming while we're doing this so while we're eating. We talk about photography and different things we were done. We're heading out to our car and there's this cute little old lady walking in her Walker and she's about to put it in her trunk and he can tell else she's having difficulty so without hesitation my friend. Arnold says do you need help inch was. Oh gentlemen thank you here here. Comes the firemen Jason he opens the trunk puts the the Walker in and then he takes her by the hand and walks to the front of the car her and she was all thank you this. I could do it but I have to use the car and this makes it so much easier plus. You're a good looking guy and we're laughing offing. I stabbed a pitcher and I put it on facebook and all I wrote. Was I love my friends here is it is a Melbourne Florida firemen firefighter from his heart helping the community so it it in that one little pitcher a it showed hey look our firemen. Were part of this community. Look what look at one of our firemen opener is doing off the record or off the hours. He's not working right now here. He is helping someone of the goodness of his heart and I stepped snapped one little shot. Just share it with the world. you know. I was proud of them. I was very proud that without even thinking he jumped to it so that so one way I can give an example on how to invoke world change is little things like that post post a feel-good something on facebook for the love of God. Please stay away from the political stuff on facebook. Let let's swap. Hold that stuff out and with or like teenagers and I hate when people say hey what's wrong with this world. What's wrong with this world? Nothing look how great these teenagers interact with each other so. What are some tips that you can use to get your message out? I think your your audience has one of the best tools already in their knowledge of and ability ability in photography to do exactly what you just said it is an unlimited font of opportunities to do exactly see that what you just described capture stories and share them that communicate the essence of what you think life is really about and how we can be better header and follow that up with relationship building if people express interest in in that work and what you're doing talk to the more what what are they saying in their life. what opportunities are there too. You know is there. Is there local can can they benefit from meeting with you and maybe showing you around in their context and seeing if your skills can be helpful to what they're doing it some way. I I feel like a your your listeners know much better than I would. the ways that their talent has helped people in the past and and I think it's just a matter of of asking themselves the question of I would like to do the hard saying scheduling time and Might Week uh-huh carving out mental space in my in my worried mind to think about how I can use this to help others and once they do like you said it's just the way life works is that one small action leads to something else leads to something else all sad especially being able to share it all on social media. I just think the possibilities are now extremely informative and very motivational. Oh Network of people learn more about you. I have a facebook page at filton piece F. Like Frank. I L L. S. O. N. P. A. C. E. At filton piece that's what I have now currently have a youtube channel also it's it's under my name John Vilson Vilson. It's a for now. It's a lot of the same stuff. I have a content there about basic concepts in peace studies for people that want to learn more about what peace building is and some of its basic concepts. I've actually more recently struck up conversations. You Know Oh speaking about how can you use what you have and what you're talented in to benefit others. I being stuck in Iraq without other ex-pats around was really wonderful and nightmarish at times just with how difficult difficult and lonely it was but one positive result was I learned Iraqi Arabic really well and Iraqis are continually impressed us with my pronunciation so I've made a lot of videos recently talking with them about issues of cultural differences in perceptions of misperceptions between our cultures and so there's a lot of that content on there too. I always put subtitles so anybody can access them but so that's a place to learn more about me and my background of course I'm unlinked in also at Johns Elson. Hopefully you can find more of my work and information about about being feature that is great and I can't thank you enough for taking time out of your schedule today and sharing your challenge with us. I appreciate the invitation and I I love what you're doing and and I hope this topic is helpful to people and I just really appreciate you and the work that you're doing in this space for for all of your listening and for me.

"Listen to the advice that you're giving. None of our close mutual friends. Their daughter was considering going to college woes. He advice, you gave you remember. I I remember a conversation. I told her. For talker. Affi you're better off going to two year school learning the lingo and understanding the basics and then go work as an assistant learn what you want to do kinda targeted people if you wanna do commercial advertising architecture travel photography and then find a photographer who's doing that work as an assistant for them. Now, if you see you your pass of life that you'd wanna teach and go get that for your degree because you have to have that. But if you're just going to, you know, stick and die with the camera than I would recommend just go to the two year thing in local community. College will say you a lot of money and then go on insists get out there. And learn from a photographer who's doing what you desire to do, and what they're not hustle, oldies trade schools Reinold as your call a trade school or journeyman would wear. And like you said make your mistakes on somebody else's dine right? And about saying to where you're screwing somebody else up the person who's hiring. Obviously the interns. You're not gonna get paid a whole lot of money and a lot of times non pain position. So the person who takes you on is taking the risk. First of all bring you in giving you their craft. If you best up there confident in themselves that they could salvage it and fix any of these mistakes. And you know, every will win you're gonna you're not gonna be hired right off the top to be a like a first assistant on camera onset. You're going to be a second or third assistant, which basically is clean the bathroom cleaner coffee cups, when we're done shooting clean, the set rep the set take the trash out you're not going to even be on camera until you can show your responsible enough out those. Duties and doom on time. If you show up late don't come back. That's a simple as that. A lot of people. I give a lot of people hard time about that. But that's that's the number one rule. People. Call me all the time. Hey can consist. Yes. Let's made it Starbucks. Let me get to know you and see your work. And if they apply minutes late, give them courtesy of the meeting, but I'll never call him just because they don't respect time. And I know it's harsh, but that's true in reality. And as I said, if you can show responsibility in cleaning doing the job of the coffee cups clean. She's me is that craft service area. Maintained are doing a good job he respectful, then when I can trust you with a little bit. Then I trust you with a lot. And then you eventually work onto the camera.

They don't they don't. They don't have the eye for the detail because they don't have the experience because again, we'll go back to what we originally said. They didn't assist, and I look at some so many bridal pitchers nowadays, the the bucaneers such an integral part for the bride and they don't included in the shooting.

She's taking it too personally. And that's that's fine. That's fine.
