Episode 2: Photography as a Way
What does photography mean to you? What role does photography play in your life? This episode we delve into photography as a “Way of Life” and what that means.
A Way is a kind of path, a personal philosophy, a type of quest or journey of self-discovery to seek and address questions about ourselves and our world, to find our place in the world amongst our family, friends, community, society, and culture. It’s the manner in which we live our life in a a direction toward an idealized lifestyle we select for ourselves. Five characteristics of a Way are:

  • 1. Vision
  • 2. Values
  • 3. Passion
  • 4. Talent
  • 5. Goals

Two concepts of a Way are:

  • Wa: harmony, peace, or peacefulness
  • ensō: a hand-drawn circle symbolizing the interconnectedness of things

Episode 1: Phodogma
In my inaugural podcast I introduce myself and the podcast. My first topic is Phodogma, a term I think I just coined, which refers to the dogmatic belief in photography of various things from “status” to the “Rules”. I’ll occasionally have a segment about unwarranted beliefs in photography. Are there distinguishing characteristics between amateur and professional photographers and between those just playing at photography and those who are serious about learning the craft and exploring the possibilities? Certainly. But the characteristics of the pro and amateur, dilettante and practitioner, do not revolve around how the photograph but around why. In this Phodogma episode I talk about four dogmatic beliefs some people think convey a kind of status on a photographer and explain why none of those beliefs matter in defining who those photographers are. These four things are:

1. Auto vs Manual
2. JPG vs Raw
3. Equipment
4. Film vs Digital
