Curating your photography is one of the most important skills you can develop as a nature and landscape photographer. This skill helps you narrow down your work so that only the best of the best images are showcased, and helps you to develop your skills as you grow as a photographer. This week on the podcast, I was joined by Brent Clark, a nature photographer living in Madison, Wisconsin. We talk all about curation of your photography, including tips and tricks Brent uses to do this for his own work.
On this week's episode, we also discuss:
- Brent's journey into photography,
- The advantages of being an amateur,
- The shift to more personal, intimate nature photography,
- Photographing in the mid-west,
- How to reach your audience,
- Stories behind two of Brent's images,
- And a lot more!
Other topics discussed on the podcast this week:
- Support the show on Patreon.
- Podcast t-shirts.
- Mentoring with Matt Payne.
- Scientific evidence supporting that making photos strengthens our memories.
