The Ordinary Photographer

The Ordinary Photographer

By Ian Turpin
A photography podcast bringing creativity to people who find it difficult. Film Photography will probably get talked about quite a bit, but creativity is gear agnostic.... Well, I think it is anyway.

S01E05: Those Who Can't... Teach...
I can't get over the amount of erms!!  Anyway, this week I witter on about the phrase "those who can't... teach...", wishing that it wasn't me but ultimately realising that it is. Discussing mainly the advantages of night school learning, or learning ina  social environment which is possibly the worst thing to be talking about at the moment. My wife always tells me I have terrible timing.... Roll on episode 6! Email the "show" at theordinaryphotographer@outlook.com and consider sumbitting an image for discussion on the new Flickr group!

Episode 4: Is Feedback Useful?
I think I'm getting into a groove at the moment. Join me for the fourth episode where I ramble on a bit, tackling the question of feedback and asking myself how useful it might be. Actually, there's not much groove. Still a lot of erms. Drop me an email at theordinaryphotographer@outlook.com if you like.

Episode 3: Celebrate the Print
So after a completely failed effort to incorporate YouTube, I applied the sensible rule of "If at first you don't succeed, give up." Instead, I spend this episode talking about the print, starting with reading out the statement on Magnum photographer, Constantine Manos' site https://constantinemanos.com/the-print/ tl;dr - Print Your Work. Zine, book, or just a print on paper.  Email me if you're a listener if only to prove my email works! theordinaryphotographer@outlook.com Cheers for listening! Ian.

Episode 2: Slow Down With Film. Slow Right Down!
In Which Ian rambles on some more (see if you can spot the cuts) about film photography the week after saying gear wasn’t a factor. Hey - I'm not perfect. Go shoot some film and be nice! ProTip: Don’t forget to un-mute a track before you save it as an mp3 and upload it. You’ll appear to be super professional and not an idiot. ProTipII: Accept your defects. If it’s erms, repetition, cats or wind. Nothing in life worth having is easy.

Episode 1: All The Erms
So Episode 1 is all about me learning how to do this improperly with a million takes, sound levels all over the place, and intro music that goes on a shade too long... In Which I.. Talk about what this podcast is hopefully going to be all about, witter on about film photography for a bit, then ramble on about how I got into photography and why I love it. It's taken me quite a while to get episode 1 out of the door, and it's not all crap - even though there's a colon in the middle of the title. Hope you enjoy! Ian.
