In this week's video, Ibarionex discussed the importance of paying attention to the small details, especially juxtapositions between the subject and the background. The process of slowing down when practicing photography provides an opportunity to observe the small details that often make or break a photograph. Using images submitted by TCF listeners to The Candid Frame Flickr pool, we get to explore the detail that can make all the difference.
Each week we pull images submitted by listeners to The Candid Frame Flickr pool. You can submit images for consideration in these weekly videos as well as become part of a growing community of photographers.
Matt Payne is a landscape photographer who grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado and was lucky to have parents that instilled him with a healthy appreciation for the outdoors. He grew up quite poor, which was actually quite a blessing in disguise, as his family vacations involved going camping in the Colorado mountains almost every weekend during the summer. His father took him along on his pursuit to climb Colorado's highest 100 mountains back in the 1980's and helped him climb my first 14,000 ft. mountain at the age of 6.
In this week's video, Ibarionex discusses how it can be a challenge during the summer to find time to dedicate to photography, especially street photography.

When I first began podcasting, there were only a handful of shows dedicated to photography. Now, there are so many that it's hard to find one that stands out above the rest.
Granted that my perspective is more skewed than the average listener. I not only produce my own podcast, but my professional career has revolved around reviewing and writing articles about equipment and gear as well as writing profiles about photographers. So, when I look for content, I'm looking for something that I can appreciate both as a photographer and podcast producer and provides me with something that I have not had before.
