The Nikonians On Location #57 - Photograhper's Block

Added by martinj | March 30, 2009   12:23 AM

Blocked, bored, uninspired. Martin apologizes for this somewhat depressing podcast about photographer's block and his vague attempts to give advice to others when not even being able to get out of the hole himself.

Click here to download Nikonians On Location Podcast #57 (NPC-OL-2009-03-30; 17:57; MB, MP3 format).

Show Notes: March 30, 2009
But He manages to get a bit of advice over the counter like giving yourself assignments, shooting with shallow depth of field and an tip found on the web: the 100 step challenge. Walk, count steps and every 100, take a picture. You will find this and more tips on Photocritic.org.

Video supplement:
Uncommented pictures from a stale period in Martin's photography life - no speech, wise words or advice - just pictures and music.

On Location postponed... again... sorry!

Added by martinj | March 23, 2009   2:40 PM

ol_postponed.jpgOnce again Martin regrets to have to announce that there will be no On Location podcast or slide show this week. As a consequence of the many delays lately he has decided to make the show biweekly and publish new episodes alternating with the Image Doctors every two weeks.


The Nikonians On Location #56 - Macro Ringflash

Added by martinj | March 16, 2009   12:00 PM

This time using a ringflash of the more classical type - for macro photography. The Metz Mecablitz 15 MS-1 is in reality two small flashes mounted on a ring, which rides in front of the lens.

On Location postponed

Added by martinj | March 2, 2009   8:40 AM

next-week.jpgMartin Joergensen's shoot of the models Camilla and Louise this weekend will be covered in next week. Both the amount of post processing and paid work has Martin bogged down, and he excuses not being able to finish his podcast and slide show on schedule.


The Nikonians On Location #54 - Snow and Models

Added by martinj | February 23, 2009   2:40 PM

Talking about two very different subjects: snowy landscapes and model shoots. First a small trip into the winter landscape, some talk about working on the images and then some thoughts on getting hold of models for model shoots.

Click here to download Nikonians On Location Podcast #54 (NPC-OL-2009-02-23; 36:31; 33.5MB, MP3 format).

Show Notes: February 23, 2009
Winter and snow can sometimes be different to shoot, and since we were suddenly attacked by snow and cold weather, I ventured out with my friend Asger to get the first (and hopefully last) shots of snowy landscapes this winter. We also shot some bird photos. But having spent the week getting an appointment with a couple of models for an upcoming shoot, I thought I'd devote some time to that subject too.

The sound file:

  1. A short forest walk
  2. Model thoughts
  3. Working on the images
  4. More model thoughts
  5. Bye

Video supplement:
Some of the winter pictures and some of Asger's bird images, but no models yet.

The Nikonians On Location #53 - Visual Noise

Added by martinj | February 16, 2009   2:10 PM

This week I focus on visual noise, which is the kind of clutter that meets the eye when looking in messy garages, on chaotic bulletin boards, at random collections of things.

Show Notes: February 16, 2009
I was introduced to the concept by Erin Fitzsimmons via Chase Jarvis - pictures so chaotic that they are almost beautiful. Chaos on a shelf, a bulletin board, in a garage. It was everywhere once I started looking. Even in my home... well, mostly in my home, unfortunately.

Find Erin Fitzsimmons here and Chase Jarvis here.

Video supplement:
Some visual noise for you to sample. Examples from locations outdoors as well as indoors.

The Nikonians On Location #51 - HDR-1

Added by martinj | January 26, 2009   12:13 PM

The first episode of at least two on HDR - High Dynamic Range - this time dealing with the concept of dynamic range and the principles of capturing HDR.

This program covers the theory and shooting side of HDR, and the next episode will focus on the software side - combining and post processing bracketed series and HDR-images.

No On Location this week

Added by martinj | November 24, 2008   8:00 AM

The On Location podcast will unfortunately not be out this week. Work and other issues have kept Martin on the heels with regards to photography the past week, and as much as he would love to shoot and record, there simply hasn't been time in the itinerary.
On Location will be back in full force next week. Until then you may enjoy some archived episodes, reading Martin's blog or spend some time cooking up ideas for Martin to cover in the coming episodes. Mail them to him at onlocation@nikonians.org or post them in the Podcast feedback forum.

Added by martinj | November 10, 2008   10:00 PM | Comment

Show Notes: October 13, 2008
One thing not mentioned in the podcast or slide show is: be prepared for saltwater! When the wind is good for surfing, you have waves and spray coming over you constantly, and your gear will get wet. That's the price you pay for getting close to the action.

  1. Welcome
  2. Gear used
  3. Bumpy ride
  4. Missing the laptop
  5. Back home

On Location gone fishin'

Added by martinj | September 15, 2008   1:57 PM | Comment

gone_fishin.jpgLiterally... Martin has been out fishing these past few days and must regretfully announce that he has concentrated more on scaly creatures than on Nikonians (with good luck he says). Because of this the podcast On Location is cancelled this week, but will be back in full force next Monday.

The Nikonians On Location #22 - Chaotic Collages

Added by martinj | June 16, 2008   10:30 AM

This time Martin is sticking a lot of individual images together to form collages. He covers the way of shooting them and how to create controlled chaos in the result.

Show Notes: June 16, 2008
Inspired by Heather Champ of flickr and David Hockney, a British pop artist, we this time venture into a more arty way of taking and working on pictures. By shooting panoramic-like, but without the meticulous control that's used in normal panoramas, we get a dozen or so images that can be arranged into a chaotic collage.

Video supplement:
This week's slideshow shows a few examples of the finished collages and follows the creation of a couple too.
