Episode 015 - Navigating between extremes
You caught me right in the middle of creating version 2 of the Low-key Bodyscapes book. Why is this topic so fascinating? Because when posing for bodyscapes, the model navigates between two extreme poles. On the one hand she is not only nude but even gets into very revealing poses. On the other hand she stays anonymous because her face is not in the frame. The E-Book version of the book, which I will always keep updated, is here: http://goodlightmag.com/low-key-bodyscapes

Episode 014 - f/1.2 does not make my photos better
In the beginning of my photography I thought that I need a fast prime lens in order to make good photos. Furthermore, I would need a lot of photoshop and bunch of other silly tweaks. Nowadays I seldom shoot wider than f/2.8. The photos for my books often don't get retouched at all. Not always ideal, but I don't mind. You?
