Today’s episode is an interview with Trey Ratcliff. Trey is known for his travel photography blog, Stuck in Customs, among many other things. In the interview, we talk about his new video series, Becoming an Artist.
Trey picked up a camera in his thirties and taught himself how to make photos that express the way he sees the world. He finds the process of making photographs meditative. What about the idea that when we are taking photos we’re not present? He says, “That’s a lie!” Trey says when he’s photographing his family, he is incredibly focused on the experience. What does he do with all those photos he takes of his kids? Trey shares a great idea for sharing family photos as magnets that can be rearranged throughout the year.
Trey explains what HDR photography is and what it is used for. And, we talk about a month long trip he recently went on with his family.
Just this month, Trey launched a new video course called, Becoming an Artist. Leave a comment on this post sharing something you are struggling with in your artistic path for a chance to win the series.
