The world is full of scenes, every day, every minute, wherever we are, wherever we look. Some are obviously spectacular, breathtaking, informative, intriguing or memorable. Most appear more ordinary. For the photographer, whether shooting the spectacular or the ordinary, there is a thought process about what images to capture and how to capture them. The details of that thought process, illustrated with his own beautiful photography, is what the Martin Bailey Photography podcast is about.
Martin shares, and we learn from, his thoughts and weekly examples of dealing with issues such as, what angle and height to shoot from, what focal length to use to determine how much of the scene to include in the frame, what aperture to use to determine how much of the frame should be in focus and how much should compliment the main subject with blurry and dreamy-looking backgrounds and foregrounds, and how to control the quality of light by paying attention to weather, time of day and time of year.
His insights are brilliant and the methods he uses to instruct are easy to follow and understand.
