Live Show Recap: Abstract and Geometric

Chelsea sasses the old-heads right off the bat. Tony wears cool glasses to assure you he is working on a video about shooting the eclipse.

This week we satisfied Tony’s new obsession by looking at your geometric and abstract photos. There were some great ones!

Next week’s topic is contrast. Contrasting colors, or contrast in mood, or simple contrast in light. 

No news this week, except that Tony made Margaritas with lemon.

Ok, let’s get into your photos:

-wait, Ahmed. You got a pick and you were still bugging me all show about why it wasn’t on theme?!

Tron building

-Palm Springs

DC

forks

Pentax 4 Life

lines

-“and that’s the point today, confusion”

-extreme abstract

-“this is very cool, I want it to be my album cover

-“I’m gonna give you a pick cause I didn’t know the name of that

-under the clock

-double exposure

flower, or ear canal?

chairs

James! Good one.

Over to me for your questions:

-what’s more satisfying, a great wildlife shot or a really popular YT video? Wildlife, it takes work and focus to capture. YT videos are fleeting.

-Chelsea, what’s your favorite type of photography? Travel.

-what are your favorite shapes, excluding the rhombus? Hexagon, circle. Tony has a nerd answer. Chelsea doesn’t like octagons cause they’re always telling her what to do.

-what are your thoughts on Nikon working on a mirrorless camera? Chelsea’s into it, Tony hopes they don’t introduce a new mount.

-follow my step-son’s YouTube channel (he went from 9 subs to 182 because of you all!)

Ok, time for a portfolio review. Casper Krohn. Change the arrangement of your pricing page. Change the lead photo for your animals. Don’t have a category with only one photo, pare them down and combine them.  Good work, just focus on replacing photos.

Time for chit-chat! Where you say things and we respond.

-Wanderlust, we get it. Tony throws shade on Germany.

-alcohol, the drink of idiots

-oh Amazon reviews

-Tony, the dog whisperer

-Chelsea “Cringy Woman” Northrup

-here’s a long time talking about country music

Ok, back to your photos:

-hot air balloon

-stair shadows

-“don’t you dare talk like me”

-“you’re lying and I like that about you”

-naked jumping

airplane

star

Twitter Q from Justin:

-why the hate for spot color? It’s usually lazy. Watch this video. Tony throws Chelsea under the bus.

Back to photos:

-happy birthday, Laura

skeegul

-“if you’re just wrong so much, people don’t correct you anymore”

-lost balloon

-dope blinds

-windshield lights

-“I’ll give you a pick, that’s a shape

-“oh, this is that thing, you wouldn’t understand” “a whisk?”

-twisty building

-more shadow stairs

fountain

-this makes me think of space

-blue and orange

-sidewalk weed

Questions from me:

-favorite current lens and why? Sony 70-200 f/2.8 GM, Canon 500mm f/4 for wildlife, Canon 400 f/5.6 for it’s lightness, Sigma 18-35. Too many to list, depends on what you’re shooting! But their favorite child is Madelyn.

-thanks for $, Connor

-changing the white points messes up skin color, help! Work with your color channels and keep the orange, yellows and reds. Or mask the image first to keep the people out and then adjust the surroundings.

sdp.io/whichcamera, please visit it before asking

-what character would you be from GoT? Arya for Chelsea, Tony would be the dad that got robbed by the Hound, Justin would be the many-faced god, I would choose Arya or Ygritte

Back to photos with this lovely overhead shot of tennis courts:

-“nobody knows what this is, pick

-dang, Stuart

-“oh my god, the earth is flat. Just kidding!”

-everything in America is a baby

-“there are grandmothers who have those little signs right on ’em” and now Chelsea is ded

spikes

One last question before we go:

-when you go out to take landscapes of somewhere you’ve never been before, how do you prepare? Google, sun tracker apps.

And that’s our show! Next week’s topic is “contrast” and all that could entail. Thanks!

    Great stuff!
    Someone touched a raw nerve with that fork picture.
    As that dressing gown guy said in some Star Trek movie, “… Luke, use the forks…”
    Thats all I’ve got.
    Top notch show as always, thanks
