Faded + Blurred On Taking Pictures #92: The Analogy of the Sphere

I really like the Faded + Blurred site, it is a place I regularly visit and have recommended it to you before. The On Taking Pictures podcasts are interesting and worth your time.

Every week, Jeffery Saddoris and Bill Wadman take on the art, science, and philosophy of photography and explore how they play out behind the camera in the process of making images. Go here for the links 

Show Notes
This week, we chime in on a recent NY Times article that questions the new definition of photography. Should using a camera somewhere in the process be a prerequisite to calling something a photograph? Are curators simply throwing stuff at the wall and hoping that Art is the only thing that sticks? We also discuss a listener email that centers around the flood of tutorials and techniques available to photographers, which begs the question “What should I learn?” Plus, National Geographic shooter Bruce Dale is our Photographer of the Week.
