PHOTOGRAPHY LIVE AND UNCUT NO. 109 with Ted Vieira

Ted Vieira joined me for show no. 109.

Ted is one of those guys that is so laid back 'cool' and relaxed that it set the scene for an easy conversation... Talking to him is just a joy. In this episode we talked about his love of film photography using his Leica M6, and his Medium format camera the Mamiya c330, also his film preferences. After so many tests his preference for now is Acros, but there are many more he wants to test! His love of film photography is due largely to the Fuji filter options on his Fuji X-Pro2 and X-T2. He says in the interview that Fuji made him slow down after he had switched from Canon. Which in-turn made him consider using film cameras for his personal work. Ted is an accomplished portrait and glamour photographer and produces some fine work for his wonderful commercial work, for which he still prefers to work with his Fuji's (X100T, X-Pro2 and the X-T2). But for his street photography he is enjoying his Leica M6 and Mamiya c330 out and about.  In the show you will see us compare printed images instead of the usual screen share. A new idea of mine, which I think really showed the quality of work that can be achieved with Film cameras.

So, I hope this show gives you a few pointers and if you haven't considered trying an 'old' film camera why not do so?... It might just open your eyes a little wider to the wonderful art of photography. 

Thanks Ted.

PHOTOGRAPHY LIVE AND UNCUT EPISODE 88 WITH Ted Vieira

 

I first came across Ted Vieira, whilst watching his You Tube channel. In those videos he talks about his photography especially about his recent switch to the Fuji X camera system. After 30 years as a pro jazz guitarist Ted Vieira changed careers and turned to photography . Since then he has built an extensive portfolio of work in glamour, portrait and boudoir genres. We talk about his music, his photography and the reasons why he switched to Fuji from Canon and what he has discovered. We also talk about printing; take a look at some of his prints and use the screen share to show more of his work. Also Ted shares his thoughts of what he likes to produce in his chosen field of work and how the work of Herman Leonard (photographer of Jazz performers) and Saul Leiter's, colour and mono photographs, have influenced him.

Thanks for joining me Ted.

PHOTOGRAPHY LIVE AND UNCUT : EPISODE NO 84 part 2 with Nathan Elson

In the last episode with Nathan Elson we had so many problems with internet connectivity we just had to stop the show.

Nathan kindly offered to return at a later. In this episode (Part 2) we take a look at his portfolio and projects. There is some stunning portrait work here for you to view. In addition we talk about what is great and what is not about the Fuji X system.

There are some interesting comments made by Nathan especially for studio workers, which we both know Fuji are always happy to listen to and take on board.

 

Thanks Nathan for finishing off what we started.
