Matt Payne Photography Blog: Eight Useful Ways To Describe And Measure Photography

June 6th, 2022

How we talk about photography can often be wrought with controversy, hurt feelings, and leaves a lot to be desired for those seeking authentic feedback. When I came across the writings of today's guest on Episode 268 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast, Michael Rubin (or just Rubin for short), it was eye-opening for me. Rubin has created eight useful ways to describe and measure your photos I was really excited to get him onto the podcast to talk about his ideas for how to discuss photographic artwork.

On this week's episode, we also discuss:

  • Photographic Haiku,
  • What the Zen Arts can teach us about photography,
  • Rubin's approach to editing his photographs,
  • Rubin's podcast, Everyday Photography, Every Day,
  • And a lot more!

Other topics discussed on the podcast this week:

Here is who Rubin recommended on the podcast this week:
