Lightroom Podcast #18 with Maggie Hallahan
“It’s always light, we’re always shooting, it’s catnaps two or three hours here, two or three hours there, so it’s all merging together. It’s a different kind of rhythm.” – Maggie Hallahan
San Francisco photographer Maggie Hallahan talks about her personal technique for approaching candids while shooting in another country, the editorial style she uses for storytelling with photography, and the variety of interesting subjects she found in Iceland. Maggie gives us a glimpse into her camera technique, describing some of the lighting and bracketing techniques she employed during the trip.
Lightroom Podcast #19 with John McDermott
“It’s hard for me to imagine eating anything that I’ve seen on a postcard. And they (the puffins) are very cute, and so I prefer to just let them carry on… in the wild, without being anybody’s dinner.” – John McDermott
San Francisco photographer John McDermott takes us through a detailed tour of his thinking on “not having a hard agenda”, and being open to “pretty much whatever we found along the way”. He also drops several hints indicating that he was not altogether comfortable with “our intrusive presence” in Iceland…. as a handful of photographers would sometimes be swarming over the various subjects. He describes how this led him to sometimes wait just a bit to find and set up his shot, (as with Mr. Hildibrandsson, the “Shark Man”) a strategy that definitely helps him capture images that are unique amongst all those taken during the event.
