Ryu shot a great first half and a boring second half as Arsenal ran out of gas vs AC Milan in the Champions League. Matt was happy to get back to shooting soccer aka futbol. We talk with Jason O. Watson about Photo Mechanic and CodeReplacements.com, look at more emotions (or not) in the monthly competition, and discuss how to prepare when you’re shooting something new.
Ryu and Matt talk about doing everything you can to prepare for shooting something new or something you haven’t shot in a while.
In Training Ground we critique pictures from listeners who bravely ask for it in our Flickr group.
Our March 2012 themed competition was “More Emotion”
The winner is Kenneth Armstrong from Canada with this emotional picture:
Second place is Ipanema’s own Marcelo Schindler by Phranco Photo.
Third place is MMA – Recife/PE by R.C Dália Maia.
The April themed competition is “Low Angle”, starting a trilogy of things we want to see everyone working on. Goto our BLFS flickr group page for competition rules and to get a head start on the next two competitions.
Post your images to our flickr group for constructive or destructive critique here.
In our new segment, Matt is angry at…coming in second place. Wouldn’t you be angry if you made this picture…
…and it lost to this dogshit picture in a respected contest? I think so.
*We here at BLFS strive to get out our podcast on time, but sometimes sh*t happens. With our producer Dave’s technical difficulties, combined with Ryu’s move to Berlin, and Matt once again raging his machine against the authorities, this podcast has been delayed massively. We sincerely apologise for our mishaps and we hang our head in collective shame. Please continue to love us.
