Podcast Recommendation: Martin Bailey

We’re going to start talking iPhone soon, but here’s a podcast worth listening to, if you’re photographically-inclined:

The Martin Bailey Photography Podcast (link opens iTunes) is unique on the list of podcasts I listen to.  It’s the only one that blends its audio presentation with still frames.  (There is a plain MP3 version without the slideshow accompaniment, but that sounds tedious to me.)  Bailey is a semi-professional photographer, I suppose.  He has a day job, but spends the rest of his time specializing in nature photography.  Here’s the twist:  He’s a Briton living in Japan.  His podcast is often half-travelogue, half photography primer.  He tells the stories behind the pictures, the technical aspects of the pictures, and more.

His presentation is very calm and methodical, lasting about a half hour or so per weekly episode.  You’ll learn about photography, Japan, nature, and a whole lot more along the way.  It’s a great show.

Check out his portfolio at MartinBaileyPhotography.com.  Beautiful stuff, and he’s a Canon shooter, too. Those are turning into a rare breed these days. ::sigh::

    Augie, I can’t believe you’re purging your comic book collection. I know space concerns are troublesome, and with three kids I REALLY understand the need to cut expenses wherever possible.

    When space became an issue for me, I constructed a very simple shelf system for my long boxes. Currently, it holds five rows of five long boxes each. It stands six feet tall, but it takes up only 32×47 inches of floor space. I built it in one afternoon using a power drill, some 2x4s, a couple dozen metal “L” brackets, and a few dozen long screws.

    I could add one more row on top to increase the capacity to 30 long boxes, by simply screwing in two more pieces of 2×4. In our previous home, I sat the unit in a corner of my home office. In our new house, it resides in a small room beside my home office.

    If you’re interested, I could post a picture of it for you to check out and see if it’s something you might want to build yourself. It’s not a pretty piece of furniture that’s going to be featured in DIY Monthly, but it gets the job done.

    Congrats — you just eliminated any chance of my wife ever letting it into the house. ;-)

    Sometimes, ugly things need to be done, I suppose. It’s not ALL going. . . Just most of it. Theoretically.
