Welcome to episode 228 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast!
This week on the podcast I was joined by James Rodewald.
James is a photographer and science teacher residing in the State of New York. He started his photographic journey back in the early 1980s with a 35-mm film camera. Although his portfolio of film and digital work spans many years, one can see a few common themes emerge. One of those central themes is a long-term attempt to capture scenes of the natural world seemingly untouched by humanity: nature in its natural state.
- Balancing art with a full-time career and parenthood
- Using meditation to help channel creativity on a busy schedule
- Finding ongoing inspiration in local subjects
- Finding ongoing inspiration while returning to frequented locations and or familiar subjects
- Your photographic nemesis -- Identifying what draws you to a subject but yet evades your ability to record or express it
- Supporting conservation efforts through photography
Over on Patreon this week, James and I discuss our thoughts on overcoming burnout.
