"Package that is still weather resistant and has great build quality. That's that's such a fun kit to go out but then the the the kind of aspirational side of me has always loved shooting with the like a glass. I mean i have tattoos. That are the leica. Panasonic collaboration lenses the optic designs on me. And i yeah. I'm crazy that's crazy. There's always there. I always about you sean. There we go but but what was so cool when we launched the The series down. Here in austin we had an event and we were able to get a couple of the like l. sue macron's four to actually show and kind of just get people to understand that the lenses worked together and when it comes to like stuff. I loved shooting with a ninety millimeter. So you know my my like a fan boy. Side was just over overjoyed with the fact that i could just throw that lens on their get that look at that style and pair it up with the cameras. It's it's like a kid. Candy store recently with with this whole endeavor saluting we had a guest on a on a previous episode who shoots the l. cameras and he kind of just throughout this idea that you know go find a nfl the first one Get a sigma lens. sorry panasonic but That And he just made it so clear that you know what a joy this system can be and we're talking about yes. I know a camera that now you have to buy in the market but at the same time you're talking about entering into two great systems and being able to do it in an affordable price. So that's that's another advantage. Of course too definitely definitely i just wanna bounce back to something a sean mentioned and john mentioned earlier and we're talking about the field of a camera and showing told me about how the five is now smaller than the original camera which a lot of people thought was too big And i. It's really funny. When i saw the original like s series can cameras and the semi the like s. l. and the The panasonic of version of it. I i looked and i go. This is like a squared off brick with a smaller brick on top of it. This can't be seriously i've lived. That's going to be a pick it up. And then i did and you know what my hands medium-sized. There's nothing special about my head. The cameras felt very comfortable. They worked it actually made sense in my hands and i said you can't. This is one camera. That's deceiving to look at all right. Because i've handled the cameras that have kind of boxy square and i just don't like him. This camera worked both of them. Do and i was kinda surprised about that and again it goes back to. If you like the camera.

This is john kreidler from like a camera. Usa and like a developed the amount more than ten years ago in order to approach the murless market with autofocus in mind So previous to that our cameras like the camera being range finders was manual focus so the mound itself was designed from the beginning to accommodate both full frame as well as a pse sensors so the first product that we introduced in twenty fourteen was the legacy and then follow that with like in twenty fifteen as a full frame. Mirrorless camera So fast forward to photokina twenty eighteen. This is where the the vision of our three companies have have come together now offering. I believe eight different cameras in almost fifty lenses in the market in only two and a half years of of work. So it's really for many photographers a an unmatched. Choice of solutions one thing. I'm curious about And you might have already answered because you use the key word autofocus.

New Cameras for 2021

"So in the photography industry. I think we're off to a good start at least in terms of options for new gear. You'll see that. The variety of equipment. That i talk about today is pretty wide. I mean there's a wide variety of stuff and it's funny. I'm starting at the top of the list with the most expensive. And i'll be working down the list to downright affordable and everything on the list. is interesting. There's nothing on this list that i don't like now some of that. I can afford some of it. I cannot but that doesn't mean that we can't talk about right. there's nothing we can't do a little window shopping and that's exactly what we're gonna do right now just so we know what's going on right. We know what's going on. You know that way worthy experts when people ask us well you know. What do you think of the new this say for example the leica m ten p. reporter. That's the first camera. I'm going to talk about right now. This was inspired by lancashire history in connection with press photography so the m ten p. reporters a special edition range finder camera featuring a streamlined. Body design along with a characteristic dark green paint finish now. I don't know why it was characteristic. I don't know why that word is in the description but it's their price just left it out. Don't you think. The camera also supports a highly durable scratch resistant coating in his fitted with kevlar trim for even more rugged appearance in enhanced grip now this cameras parv limited edition of only four hundred and fifty units only with like us. I look at them i go. That's a cool camera would love to have it. But it's out of my price range. This camera i look at it and all sorts of things start to happen to me. Start to have these views going back in my past when When i was a kid does a young photographer. I dreamed of traveling the world and shooting for life magazine. And i could see this like a hanging around my neck as i went from continental continent reporting. You know all the good and bad things happen in this world. This is a very durable looking camera. I i love the idea that you know the finnish extra durable that they have your kevlar for the grip. I mean all that's neat. I love the color of it. And i can just see it with that. Thirty five millimeter f to lands on there. I could do anything with that camera that it gives me that sort of feeling now. One thing i might not be able to do with the camera is pay rent or buy because it's eight thousand seven hundred and ninety five dollars and that's for the body only probably that thirty five millimeter lens cost about another three and a half grand or so but for that money. Here's what you get twenty four megapixel full frame cmos sensor so a nice full frame camera the latest leica image processor an optical viewfinder and a three inch touchscreen. Lcd iso one hundred fifty thousand five frames per second shooting built in wi fi. They redesigned the shudder in. They added a built in level gauge. Now this is a stills only camera so no video with this so you're going to have to have a video guy with you as you travel the world to document everything that's going on because no video with this particular leica and again. It has a beautiful dark green. Finish with kevlar trim. So this thing is a beauty. I would love to have it in my backpack and just pull it out and shoot whenever i wanted to look cool and get great shots as well right in great shots as well so it's available now for eight thousand seven hundred and ninety five dollars body only so if you already have like a lenses then okay makes a little bit more sense for me. I would be starting from scratch

Review of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro

"What do you think of the iphone Twelve and twelve pro? They're pretty fantastic. They're amazing. The cliche is always to say it's the best iphone ever in these. Truly are I. Think there are some significant upgrades from the eleven and I think both twelve twelve pro show that I think for me the the. Weirdness but the hard thing to get your head around is house similar. The twelve twelve pro is and is at a bad thing and that's what I've been wrestling a lot with my review. I think the quick way I like to think about it is forget last year, forget the eleven and eleven pro and the three hundred dollar difference and the features, and if you think of the new lineup a little bit like the Mac lineup, the apple has whereas the twelve mini would be something like the macbook air and the twelfth pro would be like the macbook pro like the thirteen inch in twelve Max fifteen and I think the twelve is the macbook which has always been kind of a weird product for Apple. In the last like five or six years isn't it isn't the air a consumer thing I think that's where the twelfth false. That's an interesting comparison because a Mac Book I. Mean is basically been discontinued has always been kind of the you know the the lesser like it's the one that always gets the least attention right? Because if it was a product and it, it didn't it wasn't as cheap as macbook air and it wasn't as powerful as a pro do you source that as the issue with the twelve this year? I think the analogy holds up in a couple of those instances. I think it's it's definitely not as cheap as obviously the iphone mini and we can talk about prices second but also think as far as power Scott the fourteen as it's the same size, it's the same build. Aside from the stainless steel it is remarkably the same phone and etiquette people had them both in their hands I I mean I gravitate more towards the pro It's a little heavier. It feels more solid and at compare that more like I'm a camera person. So there's like these awesome cameras from Sunday called the as seven s three which are thousands of dollars. They're they're well-made they're solid cameras but then you hold something like Leica m the costs here nine thousand end the build is just another level I think the finish on the twelfth pro. You see earn it's thousand dollar price tag that makes sense to me. If, you think of the iphone twelve is conde affordable version of that foam. That makes sense. But this is not an iphone eleven replacement found I. think that's GonNa be the twelve mini

"I should black and white. Only that's just me. I love all kinds of. But for me, it really. It helps me see the feeling of what's going on. I think I think a lot of times. Color photography for me can be about the color, and I want it to be about more than that. I want to be about helping relates yeah absolutely. I get that I've. I've been primarily color photography forever and the past year I've heavily back into monochrome, black and white, and for the same thing just find that it's more of essence. I love 'cause nothing like could spot a read in the large field, white or something like that, but good, black and white is good, black and white, and it just it holds up. It's it's good, or it's bad, no gimmicks. Yeah for me. I find the color to just be distracting in a lot of cases, and there's a lot of great color photography out there I know. Photographers love to have these arguments like what's better than this camera this. Color versus black and white foam versus digital I. Think it's great, but it's it's all just what works for you and for me, black and white. Let's me say what I want to say. Yeah I love Pizza, but I don't Wanna eat it every day.

"Saw. In the work and something, even if you don't have a kid with a disability, something about the frustrations of being child and having no control over your life. I think a lot of people related to that, so I'm I'm not paying attention to that when I'm shooting, I'm just shooting. You know I'm I'm not that calculated of a photographer so I take pictures when I see them and I sort them out later. And kids kind of part of the collaboration process, DUDE! Yeah, they really have to be because. As much as I'd. Like to get them in their natural state, they're aware they're being photographed. and I don't ever want to take advantage of that privilege that they let me do that. I have one son who really doesn't like to be photographed and I'm. As respectful of that as a mom can be. So. A lot of people think I, actually only have two kids but I three. Am I two boys Litho. There you know five years apart, but they look alike so everybody just thinks they're Sarah Charlie also take. One day you know how come you never took pictures Niemann. My siblings I keep saying that to him. I'm like I WANNA. Take your picture, so you know you have these memories you can see I want them to be sort of equally represented in my work that I put out there. He just doesn't want it. Hanging I can't argue with him I'm not a I'm not a photo journalist. This isn't like a story. I have to cover. My first job is as their mom. And so I I try to be as respectful as I can all the time there's. There was time when I. Was Really Young, and he had a leading to. This is my youngest. He had a blade in the bathroom. Just like a murder scene is sitting on the toilet like his nose is bleeding and looked at it I so wanted to take the victor and I said okay. Charlie I'm only gonNA. Ask you once and you get say now can i. take this picture and he just mellow. And I put the camera. But. It was good was a good one to say no push that shuttering. Getaway. NOPE Not That Say. Yes, he didn't so I'm just going to act on my own. That's all because sometimes I'll ask and and ask him and ask him and wear him down, but I couldn't do at this time. It's an interesting dynamic. That's for sure. As they've grown older. They have they kind of been more appreciative of the work or do they get a little more impatient? I think so. I think it I think it depends on their mood. Daughter really had a solo show at like a in New York, which was amazing and my daughter came with me to that show. And I think she really loved people recognizing her as the girl you know on the wall. And She shares my work with her friends and. I think she really gets it and she's old enough to get it. I know there was a minute when trophy. When? Charlie thought he was pretty famous, so that was awesome. Yeah I, think they. You can I think. My kids can appreciate it also sometimes not want to be photographed. You don't WanNa be someone subject at all times when you're. In your home, true true, and it's interesting what you said about the back and forth between shooting at home, and then going out and shooting. Skaters and and I think a lot of us need that. You know you need the to type of dynamics to make both of them successful. but I wanted to ask because you did kind of start from a another career and you know. Did you take time to study photography? As it were like? In terms of history, photography and photographers, you might be interested in and. Or was it. Is it really just Kinda of shooting from the Gut and that's a? But a little bit of both. I. Didn't go to school for Photography I've learned about the history of photography on my own. And I continue to I think that's something everyone should do. At the same time I. Take pictures the way I take pictures I'm not trying to emulate anyone there. There isn't a lot of work out there. About family. And that's that's something I'm actually trying to change liked to talk about I actually started in instagram called the days in years project. And the goal is to feature. Photographers that photograph their family and also Let. Everyone know that the photographers that you know in love also photographed their family in the last fiction. The Americans is Robert Franks kids. Unilever freelander photographed his family all the time like all these. Photographers that you don't think of. Says being. Who Photograph Their family, of course they did. If you can't do photograph your kids. I read that in incredibly good point, and and you're right. You look through the body of work of all the greats and their families in their their spouse or their significant other. Yeah, it's just A. You can't escape it really and I think it's an I love that the project I'm GonNa. Actually has a few my photos now with. Great A. How'd you get to like them? Because the did you kind of go? Through all the other systems that people tend to do before they get to the best in a not I. Don't like a Ellen. You can jump because I know you, but it is the best allowed to say that okay. So it to us about how you and also as Allen may add. How does shooting with with like a affect? The way you approach is subject in this case, kids. Well the thing for me is the the cameras shouldn't get in the way of taking a picture so i. I. Liked to shoot film, I've started more recently to shoot sloth. US Mostly M. For Film and like Cue for digital, which is great because that has really let me. Get a lot more pictures that I would miss with film. You know for in the house if it's dark, kids are always moving fast. The digital has really helped me have another mode. in quarantine I've been shooting digital because I I don't WanNa. Go draw film. Wait for it to come back. Ten WanNa see what I'm getting but I I. I got my first like an m six About, the time I started shooting translator. So all of that book is shot with. Either I think it's all with an m. six and maybe twenty four millimeter Lens. Twenty four twenty you using a meritless DSL or cameras prior to this before we flew. Ahead a Canon. What was it a one d? and. That's fine, but it's a IT'S A. It's a big heavy thing. And I had My husband's highschool from his high school like Photography Class A, cannon eighty one. and. When I got the LEICA. It. It's just so simple it's. You know you don't have to worry about film speed because that's your film. You just have aperture shutter.

Foundation Columbia University George Washington University and SP national, welcome to our show. Ashley so good to have you here how? Much of your work, folks on the intimacy of your family you're you're almost the ideal photography to be judging our current Leica photo challenge, which is all about photographing life during the shutdown, so it's so at that question. What did he been doing during the quarantine? However even shooting is is it changed the way you're interpreting your family or just? Bring us up to speed? What's happening? Well we have been locked down I. Think we're on day eighty something. Like a lot of parents i. feel like I'm running a school out of my house. This is not the way my daughter expected to finish her freshman year of College from her Parents House. You know from her bed. We are just trying to keep everyone spirits up and feeling good and hanging around the house and keeping it interesting. Photographing I am I. Am you know a lot of people have talked about? At the beginning of this, there was this kind of movement of you know, get stuff done. Be Productive and then I think that's turned into like. Take care of your mental health. Don't put pressure on yourself. Yeah take a breath if you can't their days. I can't take pictures in their days. I do it just it is what it is. It's all fine. But I love seeing. That? There's so much more work coming out from people who don't normally photograph their families or you know if they do not really considering part of their art. And I I love seeing people. sharing more of their daily lives and more about their families. I love personal work like that. He's a question for you came to talk. After working in the sciences and in Web design What what was your path? Because it's it's funny. How many photographers we speak during the show that comes from industries that seem to be reliable insensible, and they'd come photographers, which of course is the most illogical thing to do for living? But what was your path? What took you from? To the, You. Know it's weird. It's like they were two separate paths. Entirely. I come from a family of sort of amateur photographers. spent my childhood looking at our family. Photo albums might uncle who took a lot of our family. Pictures was a you know built a dark room when he was on. A I've always loved photography, but that's not. It wasn't a thing. I was going to do with my life. Then I I had kids and my husband and I agreed. You know that I would stay at home and raise the kids. And, it's really hard to go from having a fulltime job to stay at home with kids. It's hard to stay at home with kids in general. than. It was kind of trying to find ways to amuse myself. And I started photographing them, and learning more about photography to educate myself taking workshops, and I started going out at some point, photographing skateboarding in Venice. And what was fun about that was that I would drop the kids off at school, and it felt like such an escape from my mom lights, which is kind of about serving other people taking care of other people. It was fun to go and hang out with A. TOTALLY DIFFERENT CREW! Do completely different and then come back and pick up the kids and go home and continue my life. Do you shooting with your kids at that point too when you would come home and Take measure subjects. I think I learned how to be a photographer by shooting. Anything but my family and then. I was able to come back. And SODIGRAF my family in a way. That felt like my photography, not just family snapshots. Somewhere. There's a line for me and it's I don't even know how to describe it, but there are. Pictures you take a parent. You know in front of the classroom with a teacher on the last day of school or Kids opening presents, or whatever and then there are. Photographs that speak to a little more of that the people relate to. That are kind of universal about parenting and Childhood. Absolutely is one of the things that you can kind of tell. How do I say this as you're taking it before you're taking it or do you need to kind of get the idea totally when you're talking about taking the pictures of kids opening the presents and the things that everybody photographs But how do you? Let's say there's something that's in between balance that. How do you draw the line and say you know what this is? This is part of my work, and this is just something. Put you know to show the kids when they're twenty. I think it's I think it's just instinct. I only like to show photographs that I. Think are great quality photographs photographs that I would put in a book. I think you have to judge photographs of your family. The same way you would judge any photograph I think you do have to be. Objective about it and it really helped me a lot to have someone that edits my work. who is my business partner? David Carroll. Who has a great eye for this knows. My family knows what I'm trying to say. and to me it also just to be a good photograph. I have to stand behind it like anyone would stand behind the L. Landscape are still life for any kind of portrait. It has to meet all those qualifications. There's a phrase that always sticks with me. And we were speaking with Craig he and we were talking about the same the same idea and I mentioned it, but it goes something along the lines of you know a good photograph has to be. Better than the thing you're photographing and that's something that always sticks in the back of my head when when I when I take a picture, you can take a picture of anything you know, but yeah, that's it's an interesting idea. Because like I was saying it has to say something more than just the my kid and I think that's what happened with my first book tweeter, which was such a surprise at. What's what's the success it had you know it was written up? It's sold out in two weeks. It it really I had no idea this would happen but I think there was.

"Clouds and a sunrise and Bam. You know you get it. You get one shot at it because the time is, the moment is fleeting and. And from that aspect I'm finding it really challenging and fun to shoot landscapes which I. Never I never thought I'd say that had the yet. The parameters of being a fixed place you go shoot landscape, you go to the landscapes here in a situation where you are essentially an on a perch You're about looks like about what eight to ten floors up. Your your elevated for sure. And that's good and I. It's. That's. Amazing, Hey right points for our S. But now you have this vantage point, and and again you could see just so far depending on how close you get to the window, and how far left and right up and down, you can go So what's really going on as you have this framed canvas, your window and the scenery is constantly changing nonstop, so you're coming and going, do like working that way as opposed to being able to go out and position yourself, it's it's sort of the you know now now. The pictures have to come to you. Go to them. Correct and you know in some ways I'm finding it much more efficient. Sometimes it's good to have a boundary some creativity. And I don't often do that to myself in the street and sometimes I I realized that I probably am inefficient with my use of time I'll be walking around too much rather than sort of staying in one place I have to remind myself just find a good spot and stay there because I do like walking around in experiencing the city and seeing you know what what comes up. But I can't do that here. Obviously, and it's forcing me to just look at what is in front of me now. Fortunately I'm kind of a position here where there's a lot going on in front of me, but I'm amazed at every day. You know virtually something new. That might not have occurred to me. Is Happening I mean? We talked a little bit earlier. You saw the there's. On my website now I've got one of these photographs upside down car on Lake Shore. Drive that this guy got in a wreck in the in the car was upside down and I met a turn lakeshore. Drive here where every time it rains. It's like clockwork you can. You can hear the crash and it's a sickening sound I. Know Know what I'm talking about. That sound of metal and glass crashing each other. And people. He constantly hit this wall. Fortunately, they never seem to hit it hard enough. Where people are seriously injured, but they crash their cars on a regular basis. This guy must have been flying or something. And he ended up upside down two days ago. I I saw for possibly the first time in my life, an actual full rainbow. You know it wasn't broken in the middle anywhere and so I got this this kind of crazy picture of a rainbow. It's also on your site stunning, but for those of you who listening in saying. What are these people talking about? If you just Google Leica blog and then go down to a little bit on the leftist, says corona diary. You'll see all of Craig's pictures that we're discussing right now. You can look at him as we're talking I'm sorry, not thanks but yes, so it in each day. The the weather is different. You know this sort of time of year. Is has been great for dark skies and beautiful sunrises, and there's a lot of drama going on in your skies by you. It's unbelievable and what? What's what I like about where I'm at is. There's this sort of breakwater as you can see if you're if you happen to be looking at that, that is you know immovable. It's there permanently. I'm using that sort of as the as the I'm using the same angle trying to the same window of this of this breakwater every every time. I shoot something different and it's. It's amazing in. It's going to be like Monet's haystacks or something if you will of trying to get the same exact scene with radically different weather around it and and I'm going to do this probably for the time. Maybe I don't know how long this lockdown is going to continue but I'm GonNa continue doing you know whenever I'm here in the summer and see where this can take me because it's. It's sort of never ending fascination. Just seeing the the different. The water changes colors. You know when it's. What it gets really riled up. It gets very brown other times it's it's Green Times. It's blue The clouds are it's amazing. a friend of mine recommended a book to me an old sort of out of date book by Ruth, or even the great photographer, Ruth or sure, and it's called a world through my window and the entire book is shot. Shot through her window over central. Park and you're like and I'm reading the preface and she says yeah. It's hard to believe, but if people ask me all the time, all these pictures were taken out of my window and she says it's just like being out on the street and she says you do a lot of waiting waiting for that moment waiting for. The taxi to go by someone get out of it. It's the same thing. It's really very much street photography. That's a that's a great book. By the way we were just talking about that. The other day with with another guest jammed and there's there's there's I mean. You'RE GONNA find a lot of great photographers who've kind of taken up that as a project. You know from their window, even thinking w Eugene Smith at a great series. kind of gritties shots from his window in New York. City, right what I wanted to get back though to some of the street photography and maybe some I don't know if you want to call them techniques, but you mentioned a little bit about you know. Maybe staying put a little bit longer and walking around and I I kind of suffer from the same thing you WanNa, keep moving. But that patients sometimes helps, but are you. The type that takes a lot of shots when you when you find a senior one, or or do you just of click one and move on, and if you do take a lot, the often find that it's at first one. That's the winner. Well excellent question and I. It's just both. I have examples where I have you know examples in that first book for instance were I had one chance to get the shot? And literally it. You know it was fleeting. I only had a split second to get it. I got it, and it ended up in the book, and then on the other hand I might see. Oh, wow, this is a great background. I'm going to sit here and wait and see if something develops in front of because you know I for me. People well here I am telling you how great I'm I'm liking landscapes, but. For me in general I really want people in the photograph to bring some dynamism to it That's what interests me so when I'm out in the street. Yeah, I, I won't settle for just a great background I wanNA I. WanNa good foreground as well, and I'll wait you know as long as it takes. Sometimes it comes quickly. Sometimes it never comes in you. Move On. This is a tough question, and and I don't even know where to begin a little bit. But how do you know what's? How do you find humor in a photo? I mean what what are the aspects within within the Cup position within the frame that that will lend itself other than just the subject itself Are there ways that you've developed or even thought about? Placement of characters and figures and background foreground that will lend itself to something funnier than it might otherwise, or is it just you know Kinda gone from the Gut? Yeah that's you know that's another excellent question and a difficult one to answer because. It's. You know I.

Photography podcast facebook group. And now back to the show. Okay we are back Jeff. I have a question for you. You mentioned framing a lot and and the importance of composition If you could talk a little bit about that also I'll tack another question onto that. Do you have a crop your pictures? I never. I never crop it's minimal post processing. I don't use lights I don't use a plash. Everything is about natural lighting. Or when I'm on set there's already lighting which is great I'M NOT GONNA argue with beautiful lighting an actors or crew members. I'm all good with that. But no and I don't crop I never ever crop. It's just woohoo. I learned from the masters. You know they'd ever cropped. I mean they might of you know but not. I don't see contact. You don't know but but I gotTa tell you most of my heroes. I've got books of their contact sheets. So yeah and Vivian Mayor I. I've seen all her contact sheets. And by the way the thing that was amazing about Vivian Mayor Over any photographer including the best of all time is her hip rate when you see her contact sheets these amazing pictures that she took where one of one on a page of twenty four thirty-six. Whatever it was there are at least I'll tell you what her worse contact sheet half of them. You'd want hanging in your house. It's nuts. It's nuts by the way it's higher than that that's the lowest percentage is half of them. It's crazy and when you shoot film. Do you get contact sheets. You look at them through loop or you just go right to scan and I've gotten contact sheets But I think that the best way for me is to get small prince to look at them. Look at I have to have it printed and I look at the Prince and that tells me this story and then I will i. Will you know put it into digital? Because I'll scan it. What would what would you call your success rate on when you're shooting? If I may ask you mentioned that the mayor like she was like nailing it every single shot if you take say one hundred photographs or or twenty pictures. How many of those on average would you can make you say per contact sheet? One picture makes me happy and a half dozen contact sheets. One of them is actually something worthy of someone else sing. So how so how that? So how's that for May compared to Vivian? Mayor I one page make me happy and then sex contact sheets. Oh one of those shots. I'd actually WANNA show somebody. Yes but you have to think of the reverse of that. Look at it through her is she might say look at this. I got so much printing to do. Jeff One picture on a roll of film and he's good me. I'M GONNA be up all night proud. He's GonNa get sleep tonight. Don't Talk Vivian. Mayor took her stuff to photography she door and had printed up all night and she was a nanny took pictures. Who didn't know that she was a genius or maybe she did. She was mentally ill. That was the problem with her story of that. She was definitely way over on the spectrum. Like way over and she had trouble coping. She had coping and she was a hoarder. I'm hard news or newspapers. I mean really. She was. I mean. One of my favorite things was the kids. Were late to school That she was in care for she stopped. The milt truck had them get in the milk truck and she wrote on the back of the milk to school to make sure they got like. That's crazy just pretended she was a spy and you know she wasn't warm and friendly. So you know. I've seen a couple of the photos. You took of performers onstage. And then of course. There's several of people backstage or more calmer moment do you kind of flex different muscles when you're there because you know getting that that in the moment shot of somebody like there's one. John Malania saw that I thought was great onstage. How do you feel about that? I'll tell you the answer. The answer is there is no difference between standing in the dark behind a piano behind a curtain. Getting a shot of John Mullany then there is to sitting with John Mullany in the dressing room and taking a picture of him by approach is exactly the same exactly yet the framing and and do would you more or less. You think if you're an step aside shoot more when I'm shooting people on stage than I do and that's that's mostly because I have a sense of what I've got when I shoot in addressing rumor backstage and when they're onstage. I'm not really sure so. It's more of not be sure any chance. You've compare notes with Jeff Bridges. Because he has a kind of a aesthetic. I actually have one of his photos hanging in my house From his last book. That just came out Soup the rate bookstore here in Los Angeles. I I did an interview with him for the public. A conversation and I've I know we're not friends were acquaintances. But I knew him before that. Yes I talked to him about photography in the moment but he also shoots like I do in terms of. He's not thinking he's like oh it's he feels like border camera. Bom You know getting back to the idea of of shooting when you get the feeling strikes you do you find that your your first images often without a doubt I would say seventy five percent of the time. The first shot even go higher ninety percent of the time. The first shot is the best shot. It's a lack of confidence that makes so if I'm shooting Jeff Bridges which one of a shot of heaven from the night that we had our conversation is in my show and I think I shot three maybe four of him and I gotTa Tell You. I would've stopped one if I knew what I was doing. I mean I you know what I mean if I felt that confidence which I'm working towards now you. I also heard you mentioned that. You don't always have a camera with you that you can go for weeks on end. Did Not have no exaggeration since my show went up. I'm not taking a picture. I doubt BEC- because also I'm not done much stand-up and obviously since the pandemic not taking pictures. 'cause I I have a friend Pam Payroll Assistant. She's on Instagram Pamela. Says she is taking. She lives downtown. La She is taking the most beautiful shots of downtown Los Angeles.

"Equipment which is a lot of equipment and just using the monochrome and a thirty five similar and that's it began only. That camera has made me go completely in that direction. Like what else do I need nothing? It's so good to hear you saying this because I was starting to question my sanity. Okay so either way. Actually everyone every photographer. I know who has camera? It has really a mess them up in the perfection and simplicity of it. And you know it's like yeah it's perfect and it's simple. It's like everything you dreamed that you wanted in a monochrome camera from Lake Because the MT forty and the M. Nine monochrome yes. They were pretty special. But not like this. This is actual sin perfect. Simplicity as photo. You took Larry David In a car and I think it was in New York and I heard that you switch colored or black and white and also. They're black and white kind of simplifies your decisions. You want to speak about that most definitely when I shoot. I'm an any set on any movie or TV show. I'm and I constantly have a camera. And so Larry's used to it and he doesn't think anything of it so we're in a Seen in the car and I'm just I got my thirty five and probably Was An empty forty guessing. Anyhow a where You know in in the car for three hours. I have the camera Baloney I start taking pictures now. I took this picture. It was the first picture I ever like displayed in the show it was a charity at Leica And I submitted someone bought it on. We put up you know. Put up on picture and it was color. Now in the picture that was color You focused outside of Larry's window as a car and it's gold. It's really gold and there's also a policewoman standing there in the color. You really paid attention to Larry. Yes but both of them and then I only thought afterwards. Wow that's so much better. That would be so much better in black and white and I converted to black or white. Edit was perfection you notice the car you notice the policewoman but everything was about Larry. David backing up. And so yes however there is. There is a picture in my show and only one. There's a few other color ones. But there's only one that it's of a fellow who's dressed like Jesus At the comedy store in the Hallway and it is so beautiful and color and the color like makes wore everything about it is perfect for color. While that's the only one in my entire show that wasn't black and white or would have been better in black and white and when you're can you kind of change the way you see if you know you're GONNA be shooting black and white. Let's say you have the monochrome or film camera. Do you see shadows and talk about any of that. I think about I swear to God it when I shoot. It's only about. Oh that's interesting and then the only concern I have is making sure I have nice framing. That's it comes up a lot of you. You mentioned composition which is important defunding easy with the Leica as opposed to a DSL are because I go back and forth just a different way of thinking. I mean the shooting with the like is so much more active and feels I feel part of a process whereas if I lift up a DA. Ten Greg Camera you know and push my finger down. It's done at. It's great and it might be as good as the other so for me when I shoot. It's all about the joy of the process. It's not about 'cause I never gonNA show before I met taking about well. You know I I don't care what the processes because it's just about selling the picture or getting the good shot. No I enjoy the process of LEICA. So if you like lifting to your eye and pressing have a great time and by the way nothing wrong with that I have a I of a like a cue which is odd of us. I've never even used it with manual. Focus I only shoot it with autofocus so it's really great and I do get joy out of that but not like I get from shooting in them. I understand to shift the conversation. You photograph a lot of people on set and you have a lot of great photographs of people you go onto a show. You take the camera with you if they say you can't take the camera you tell them where to go from what I understand. That's generally when I go on someone else's show or atomic show. They did they tell me You can't use your camera and I say well then you know what's beautiful you want. Have to deal with me. I'm GONNA leave and and my camera goes with the everywhere that's perfect. So here's a question for you like getting people you talk about getting that Getting people to put into their act a little bit of their personality the character. Would you call that extra little ten percent but not much becomes Hammy? Do you try to capture people just as themselves in that reflective moments by the way I only try and capture people as themselves in self reflective moments when that little spin is put on is just something that certain performers feel the need to do at. It's all based on their comfort level as people and how well they know me. And that's always the the the back and forth but I don't want if I have my druthers all the time. I don't want anyone doing anything I wanted to capture them in private reflective moments. You know I wanted to follow up on that. I had a question about that. Let's say hypothetical you. You're you see that nice reflective moment backstage or wherever and then someone gives you a look you might be a great look but you are really hoping for that other thing do you. Does that bother you at all? No no no no no it is what it is it is what it is. I'm an improviser. Just deal with the moment and really I don't they don't they. Don't make the post before I've taken the picture. Might the cameras up at my. I and I'm setting the composition and I pressed down. That's whatever the moment is if they're making a face before I even lift the camera or when I've just lifted the camera it's GonNa be a terrible picture and I might just what I'll do is and I've done this. Says Y'all take pictures or pretend taking pictures and then the minute they let their guard down? I snapped a few that that gets me. I was curious about we recent Recently we had Greg Gorman on a our show and he's photographed famous people forever and he came out interesting comment. He said.

"We welcome comedian actor producer and photographer. Jeff Garland as many of you know Jeff is well recognized from the television shows the Goldbergs and curb your enthusiasm. He's also appeared in numerous films and he's also talented photographer today. We're GONNA be speaking about his recent series a big bowl of wonderful which was featured at the like a gallery L. A. Early this year and about his shooting style his choice of like as his go to gear and his role as executive producer of the photography documentary finding the mayor. Welcome to the show Jeff. Pleasure to have you here. It is an honor and I enjoy your broadcasting voice. Oh thank you talk after the show. We've been shooting for about fifteen years now and you started with Nikon. You try to microphone thirds. And now you're into like and we'll come back to that later but what got you into taking pictures in the first place because you obviously have a real passion for this. What got me into it in the first place I would say I was just inspired by. Alfred is stat and Jim Marshall and Brisson and I would have photography books and then one day I said I'm going to start taking pictures not thinking that it would be anything that I would show outside of my family you know and then It just took off from there over time. I really had no intention of being. You know people by Prince of mine when you did start. What were you shooting? Was it just kind of around the house arouse I remember. My favorite camera. Early on was a d seven hundred. I I love that. What they Fifty millimeter one. Four and that one. I discovered filming an episode of entourage. These set photographer had a d. Seven hundred and she showed me thought. Oh that's my next camera. When did you grab the first film camera or I camera was filled camera? It was a Nikon F one hundred and you WANNA walk us a little bit Leica. Well it was sing like a come up and stuff. I was reading bopper Saen Jim Marshall Alfred Eisenstaedt. And I'm like what is this by. I like a was an MP. Three with a fifty macron in older should macron lands. That was the first one but the first six months of shooting it. I didn't have a clue you know. Because that's you're going completely manual you know and I'm photography that Cam. Yes and so relied heavily on of the the director of Photography. Curb your enthusiasm who understood how to use it. I would look to him all the time for my settings as I figured out a lot of efate be there you know could shoot film as well as digital what's the percentage of film and digital. And why would you shoot one over the other that something? That's a conversation that I'm having with myself right now because I Like employee which is a to me a perfect camera And it's black paint which I love and permanently on there. I have a thirty five. Suma macron my favorite length is thirty five. That's what I've jumped into. And here's the thing. I I really have a strong opinion about this. Which is good for the show shooting. Everyone says shoot film slowed down to think about what you're shooting well. There is no difference except that I have to wind a little bit between the way I approach film and digital when I shoot digital. I don't look at my cards for weeks. Weeks so I'm slow. So is the reason. Everybody's so slow and thoughtful is because films expensive because I still approach it the same way. I don't shoot rapid fire I take my time Think about what I want to shoot when WANNA shoot it and so what comes out with the grain and that's look film black and white and to. I don't met a big color film shooter but when I shoot try X. It's a certain. Look that I do prefer over digital and I don't like spending a year in light room. I don't even know what I'm doing light room. I hired I hired somebody. I hired somebody to help me generate the show and put it together and do the light room work a assistant. Sam who still will work for me when I do something next But I I really am now thinking about not shooting film anymore on that topic. I got to ask you something. Because we're we're parallel in certain ways you have a black. Mp Film Camera I have MP's worse than you. I I have a chrome Ala carte with blue leather on. I just saw on love and I have hammered known. What do you do you want people to you? You know you know. Well you know it's something you know what which. Lens's up but I also I fell into the same trap that you have fallen into. Apparently I have a monochrome. Now Mind you sell two grandkids in kidney to get this appreciate that and by the way when I first started like there was not a lot of money flowing through my pocket and I do a lot of stuff with like I get nothing for free. Do you know I would say at least a third at least a third of my camera equipment. Maybe even half been bought a DNA. Each so I'm like you know I'm just like everybody else like. Wow how much is that? Well there's a special place in heaven for you. I want you to know that. But here's the question and a half you now. You've been shooting film. You obviously love film and and so I learned on on on film cameras. I learned on a four by five cameras zillions of years ago and went through all of foreign nets and now I was shooting caller friendly and US went back to shitting and ninety nine percent of the color went back to shooting black and white couple years ago medium format and thirty five and then about five or six months ago the monochrome came out and I had a test drive on it and I just said I have to have one and I two I mean I went and bought my own gear but this cameras making me look at a lot of things differently because I have the image quality of not only meeting format but even approaching larger format ability thirty five and if I put on trial putting work slowly I can get magnificent results without having to carry a lot of weight on my shoulders. Is this camera. You to co -pletely because what it's making me. I swear I'm not exactly so coming up. There's a there's a I shared my show. L. A. With Alan shaller because no Allen's great and a great guy and he uses only the Monochrome Anna Twenty four millimeter. That's his jet up and I've been thinking I'm not even exaggerating of selling all my.

What Was the First Cat in Space?

"In the nineteen fifties and sixties scientists around. The world launched a veritable menagerie of creatures into space. The idea was to gauge. The effects of spaceflight on living creatures in the hopes that humans could follow. The Soviet Union sent a stray dog from Moscow named Leica into space and subsequently the Pooch was honored as a national hero and Ham. The chimpanzee was famously buried at the International Space Hall of fame in New Mexico following his contributions to the US space program and then there was France which sent the first and so far only kept into space. She was in nobly forgotten until just a few years ago. So who was this hero? Cat Villi set was one of fourteen cats summoned to the French space program each cat electrodes implanted into their brain and all were subjected to many of the same activities included in human astronaut training. A French scientists decided to use cats as they already had a lot of neurological data on them at the conclusion of training. Philly set a petite. Tuxedo got the green light in part because she had such a calm demeanor and possibly because other cats got to Chubby during training though phillies that herself was a little bit of a Lo Fi chunk on October. Eighteenth of nineteen sixty three phillies set. Who was officially known as C? Three forty one was strapped into a Veronica rocket and blasted from Algeria. To nearly one hundred miles or one hundred and sixty kilometers above the earth she experienced about five minutes of weightlessness followed by the terror of turbulent spinning descent by Parachute. Just fifteen minutes later. The flight was complete helicopter. Crew dashed to the landing site through. Open the cabin and found really set alive and well two months later scientists rewarded her heroism with Ethan Asia. They wanted to examine her body to observe the effects of spaceflight. Then feel that was all but forgotten. France was the third nation to establish a civilian space agency and likely set is often regarded as an afterthought in the feverish space race between the US and the Soviet Union so much an afterthought that in the nineteen nineties when three former French colonies celebrated her story by issuing stamps with the cats likeness. They mistakenly turned her into a him by using the wrong name. Felix but thanks to a clever kickstarter campaign. The stories finally been set straight Londoner Matt Guy Stumbled upon the tale of really set and was shocked that she wasn't already properly recognized for her accomplishments. Guy wrote on kickstarter in two thousand seventeen. She deserves a proper memorial. His online. Please netted around fifty seven thousand dollars enough to fund a five foot tall bronze statue. That's about one and a half meters. On December eighteenth of twenty nineteen. The statue was finally unveiled at the International Space University in Strasbourg France. Philly sets bronze like this purchase. A top small globe of the Earth. Her Keen Kitty is fixed upward and outward or she wants sort higher than any cat in world history.

Insurance companies are ripping teachers off

"In the past you may have heard me repeatedly talk about how teachers are getting cheated on their retirement plans. Teachers Lana nonprofit workers. Lots Times hospital workers are shunted into what is normally very inferior. Retirement plan in the workplace known as a four zero. Three B plan for threes are the teaching and non profit equivalent of a 401k. But aren't at all operated on an everyday basis. Leica 401k typically so 401k's have gotten more and more affordable with steadily lower costs for the consumer the worker putting money in the 401k and this is a movement that very heavily has been led by Van Guard and fidelity and lowering the cost of what you pay and fees over time to invest in a 401k. Teachers on the other hand are getting cheated over and over and over and over again and I probably sound like a broken record about this but it's so distressing to me that we want to build well educated kids and the teachers. We rely on to do this. And we say how much we love our teachers and we turn around and stab him in the back by having a system set up where teachers are cheated. And how are they cheated so four?

"KCRW sponsors include LEICA presenting missing link the latest animated film from the studio behind core align and Kubo it's an adventure about finding your true identity bloom who the alleged women's rights lawyer who went to work for Harvey to discredit people like rose McGowan she is saying this is a diabolical Sousse silence assault victims she saying that they they engaged in racketeering violations of the Federal Wiretap Act etc etc and I have to say there's a piece of this litigation that involves someone I wrote about Roy price who was the head of Amazon studios and I feel like it's a real window into the backscratching then a can occur in a roy price was accused in our story of misconduct and then when we published he was he was excused from that job that the same day and he had harvey had quite a relationship and rose McGowan alleges that that Roy price was part of this attempt to shut her down me and she this this one piece of Roy Price in this litigation is a window into how guys help each other out yes the allegations the lawsuit and this is piggybacking on some of the stuff that's in Ronan Farrow's book catch and kill is that Roy price optioned rose McGowan runs screenplay and for reasons that we don't quite now and then when he was discussing the project with rose abruptly she killed it and the implication is that Harvey Weinstein was actually pulling the strings here and whether Roy Price was trying to option the project Steve Harvey Weinstein was mentioned in it or if this was an effort to essentially buy her off in a manner in which Lisa Bloom apparently her for I introduction to Harvey Weinstein was when he optioned her book and said we're GONNA develop this for television and Lo and behold Lisa Bloom is then representing Weinstein and all of a sudden he had one of the prominent women's advocate attorneys on his side this is a tactic that seems to be a a a way for powerful people in Hollywood like Harvey Weinstein Roy Price to essentially buy out adverse party company desperately needed at that point because they were having financial problems she says she went to Roy Price and said this guy raped me and Roy price responded by saying no and that Harvey basically put Roy up to buying her thing to to find out what was in it if there is anything negative about him and meanwhile I will note that Roy price had tried to get his own girlfriend a deal a writer without any significant credentials at all at Amazon was told internally forget it that will never happen here it's going to be bad look for you and Harvey gave her a deal and when we reported this and asked about it the Weinstein Official Response was Oh yes we've been you know not done anything of great note at that point so again this is how it works yeah it's all funny until you realize this is part of a way ebb of efforts to silence potential accusers and it goes much deeper than I think anyone thought until these allegations have come out in the book and now the

"And the pricing was not flexible on these cameras into this day that holds very, very true. So while Leica was enforcing in all of these rules and regulations for the dealers, they were also giving a lot of these Jewish families in cameras to take here from what I understand they trained at the Leica factory, a lot of Jews in camera repair and how to use them and gave them camera equipment like cameras in bodies lenses, and sent them across the Atlantic to the US, and many of them would use these very same cameras to sell off to get a few dollars to start something new here. And he's cameras are obviously being quote, unquote, dumped head below approved prices, which really got the goat of many dealers, and they called it the refugee problem. And they had an issue with the company because here we are being held to one spot. Acidic rigid set of pricing standards the same time we have. These people come in with the boats and they're underselling is two points where we could just never compete against them. So it I think it's also interesting that lights went that far.
