Episode 44: A World in Focus

Amy Podcast


~ a pull-out bed leads to unexpected time focused on ATCs for April’s “A World in Bloom” exchange
~ my first whirl with an SLR (but not digital), the little one suggests taking a photo of his bottom would be easy, and thoughts on the boundaries of photographing others
~ I finally turn my attention to The Life Organizer: A Woman’s Guide to a Mindful Year by Jennifer Louden (author of the Woman’s Comfort Book: A Self-Nurturing Guide for Restoring Balance in Your Life) designed to help you organize your life and create a life you love [for more information, see listener Lain’s interview with Jennifer earlier this year]
~ By the way, Lain has her own Podcast! Check out Scrap Happy!
~ I spend time with the “weighty” A Photographer’s Life: 1990-2005 by Annie Leibovitz and catch up on some photgraphers unfamiliar to me in In Real Life: Six Women Photographers (and references to the Lange and Adams books I looked at earlier this year)
~ two new creative prompts – one photographic prompt that will send you through your house looking through your lens in preparation for an inspiration grid; the other, this week’s thematic prompt: “In the Kitchen”
~ in the first prompt, I mention Michael Leu’s work – which I remain enamoured with after many, many years
~ and more… Plus, as always, good podsafe music. (Length: 1 hr, 12 min)

Featured Podsafe Music:
Intro Clip: Jim Fidler ~ All I Really Wanted [PMN]
Rachel Fuller ~ Just Breathe [PMN]
Ehren Starks ~ The Story of Room 620 [Magnatune]
Cassandra Kubinsky ~ Cradle the Moon [PMN]

  2. Hi Amy,
    I just wanted to leave you a note to tell you that I really enjoy listening to your show. You always have great recommendations for books and supplies. My kids recently started listening with me and they love hearing Matthew say “Books to read! Books to read…”. Keep it coming!
