Photography Podcast: Gavin Seim – Leave a comment below, or talk about this week’s episode right here on the Shadow Hunter Facebook group.

Also, don’t miss the next Shadow Hackers Online Workshop for Free as it’s where all the change in how you shoot begins.

Finding contrast is what it’s all about in this Pro Photography Podcast.

This week is all about that contrast and why most of us are using it wrong with some examples. But we go deeper than I did in my recent video and talk about finding real contrast.

There’s two recent videos you’ll enjopy in relation to this topic…

The video that inspired this podcast… Stop Using Contrast

The video I made about using editing to fix bad photos. like I did with this shot

But in contrast to faked contrast. My photo of the Birds in central Mexico uses in-camera shadow combined with shadow editing.

Product Picks of the Week in this Pro Photography Podcast

Gavs Pick: Fuji Instax Wide printer.

Other products mentioned throughout the podcast…

The Nons Instax back for Hasselblad cameras looks pretty interesting.

Everyone into the Fuji X100 lately but for good really.

Check out Elegance presets and Gav’s other products on the homepage.

Last week’s video about contrast shows the visual side of how this works. Watch it here.

Links to other things we mentioned.

Bride wants a refund.

People are upset about this old photo of a Cuban tobacco plantation.

Fuji’s X app has nothing to do with Twitter but it’s not bad.

My video about using the F-curve.

No timidity in this photo of the agaves, deeper darks, and a cyanotype process using Gavs Emulsion 4.

About the Author

Glad you're here.

I'm from WA State USA and started studying photography in 97. I started work as a pro (using that word loosely because I sucked) using film at age 16. I learned fast but was not as easy to find training then. Sometimes I beat my head against the wall until I figured stuff out.

As digital dawned I went all in and got to study with masters like Ken Whitmire. In 09 I founded the Pro Photo Show podcast. I started promoting tone-focused editing. When Lightroom arrived, I started developing tools to make editing and workflow better.

20 years of study and photography around the country earned me a Master of Photography (M.Photog) from PPA. I got to see my workshops and tools featured in publications across the industry. Once I even won the prestigious HotOne award for my "EXposed" light and tone workshop.

Wanting something calmer, I moved to Mexico in 2017. It's a land of magical light. I'm here now exploring light and trying to master my weak areas. I make videos of that for my Youtube channel, sharing what I learn. I hope you'll stick around and be part of Light Hunters Tribe... Gavin
