Creative resources for photographers

I freely shared key knowledge and experience gained over the past 32 years in this podcast with Matt Brandon.  He effortlessly navigated the conversation to the “big picture equation” that every photographer should grasp in order to stay afloat financially. We also spoke about developing a style that is uniquely yours and how critical this is to developing your brand. We covered how to take a dream and turn it into a reality and so much more.

If you shoot weddings or are looking to turn pro this is a must listen podcast. Matts silky voice is a delight to listen too and his articulate reasoning kept me on my toes.

Pop this on while you are editing or commuting to work it will be food for thought.

    Dear Damien,

    Greetings from Tehran. I hope this mail finds you well.

    I am Morteza, an X-photographer from Iran. I do photography as my hobby. I follow your blog and articles as I love portraiture and I adore your style.

    I have a question on a new lens I have recently bought: XF 23mm f/1.4. I own an X-T1 and the problem is that at f/1.4 my shots are soft. However, on f/2 and beyond they get sharper but again not as sharp as you expect, for instance, from XF 35mm f/1.4.

    I really appreciate it if you advise. I apologize if this is not the right place for such questions.

    Thank you very much in advance for your kind support and time.

    My best regards,

    • Damien

      Hi Morteza,

      The 35mm f/1.4 should be sparkling. Mine is pin sharp at f/1.4 so do get it checked out and re calibrated.

      I hope we get to meet someday. Damien
