Memory is a powerful thing in photography

October 18, 2021

Episode 345

One of the criteria we can use to judge our own photographs is does this image match my memory of the thing I photographed? A photograph is a record of something just like our memory. Many times, I think we use this criteria as a way to evaluate our images. Does is match? If yes the photograph is good, and if not, the photograph is lacking.

In this week’s podcast, we jump into the notion of memory and how it can impact our understanding of how we view an image. I also talk about how to find a better awareness of the impact of memory in our process behind the camera so that, if we are lucky, we come home with better photographs.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.
