Lightroom Podcast #18: Maggie Hallahan
“It’s always light, we’re always shooting, it’s catnaps two or three hours here, two or three hours there, so it’s all merging together. It’s a different kind of rhythm,” says Maggie Hallahan in the podcast she recorded with George Jardine during the Lightroom Iceland adventure. George writes,
San Francisco photographer Maggie Hallahan talks about her personal technique for approaching candids while shooting in another country, the editorial style she uses for storytelling with photography, and the variety of interesting subjects she found in Iceland. Maggie gives us a glimpse into her camera technique, describing some of the lighting and bracketing techniques she employed during the trip.
This enhanced podcast includes photos taken by Maggie in Iceland, and they can be viewed on Photo and Video iPods. Only the audio track will be heard on other devices.
The podcast is available as an MP3 file via George’s iDisk (under “0802 Podcast – Maggie Hallahan”). It’s also available via the Lightroom podcasts RSS feed, and by searching for “Lightroom” in iTunes.
Caber tosses, severed Yak heads, &c.
When not enslaved in some email gimp-dungeon, Photoshop/Lightroom folks like to fire up the ol’ cameras:
- Sporting a heeuuge craaanium as I do, I figured I’d fit right in at the Highland Games in Pleasanton*. So I did, and I came away with this gallery of caber tossing**, a “hairy coo” (w/drawing of same), birds of prey–oh, the obligatory white guys showing some leg.
- Adobe pro photography evangelist George Jardine (of Lightroom podcast fame) just returned to San Jose with terrific galleries of China and Tibet. Sadly, at least one Tibetan hairy coo didn’t fare as well as its Scottish counterpart.
* The Games’ site seems about as archaic as the games themselves.
* It’s tough not to make it look like the tossers are getting gored by giant cigarettes; apparently someone at Worth1000 agrees. My wife suggests the games be sponsored by a new brand of smokes, “Pall Maul.”
