We had special guest Chris Gampat, The Phoblographer, on our live show this week reviewing your portraits! It was a lot of fun, he was a great addition to the team.
First we find out that he’s an expert in all things film photography, eateries in New York, and camera bags. Also that Chris’ parents were camera bags and he has possibly never met them.

We also have Stop It coming up this show! A handful of your sent in your worst photos and we get to tear into them.
Okay, let’s get into your photo submissions:
-invisible corn on the cob? Or Italian gesturing?
-Chris like creatures that eat children
–James Birtwhistle, first pick!
-the dangers of shooting white clothes
Over to me for your questions:
-your favorite gear for doing on-location portraiture? Chris loves the Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 with the 6D. For film he uses a Fujifilm JW693 film camera with a rangefinder 90mm f/5 lens and the Mamiya RB67 Pro S. Chelsea likes a 70-200 but also the Sigma 24-105. Tony likes the new a9 and the 70-200.
-how much of the portrait subject’s body do you keep in the shot? Depends on the use and your artistic preference! There’s goo discussion of Chris’ Tindr profile.
-(I don’t listen well) can white clothes for a portrait cause a problem? Yes! You get reflection from the surroundings color casting on the face.
Time for Stop It! Where we get to make fun of your pictures which you volunteered to us for this purpose.
-no focal point church “clutterers”
-lady and a grow
-“doing a doody in a bud?”
-don’t go in
-birds are not dinosaurs
-spot color death
-sweet Segways, dude
-be careful getting your heel stuck in your underwear

Okay, back to real submissions:
-gorgeous mood, Jim!
-smoking lady, Tony misses smoking
Back to me for some questions:
-$$$ thanks James, Kevin, and Rob of course
-Rob, we’re glad you’re alive. Don’t let your battery expand.
-what’s a portrait vs a head shot? A head shot is a type of portrait that is generally meant to market a person professionally or otherwise.
-Chris insults nerds
Back to photos:
-more smoking that Tony loves
-drinking on a mountain
-Andy Shields always kills it
-weird disembodied head
-“I reached for the P but you beat me to it” “You sound like Donald Trump”
-hold on a tick
-a puppy always gets a pick
-we didn’t save Rob’s life, but he is okay
And that’s our show! Chris was great, get his course at gum.co/CTPTPB.
Dogs can see some color, fine. But birds aren’t dinosaurs.
