This week, photographer Bob Soltys is on the show to talk about portfolio reviews, how to prepare for them, how to make a good first impression, how to deal with rejections and how to do better next time.
Bob Soltys’ love of photography began in 1967, when his aunts gave him a Kodak Instamatic camera for Christmas. He has been a photographer and a writer since 1971, when the weekly paper bought his photos of fellow high school students protesting a teachers’ strike that would have prevented seniors from graduating. Shortly after that, he began photographing weddings, and he continues to capture the joy of living in small towns, at weddings and on the street with black and white film. A former Navy officer, Bob is the coauthor of A Lucky Life, a book about Lucky, his Jack Russell Terrier. He and Lucky live in Northeast Ohio.

This week we answer questions sent to us from Babas Hariri and Georgios Sideras.
Babak Hariri: "How close do you get to people without them noticing you when shooing on the street? Which limits do you never cross?"
Georgios Sideras: "I live in Stockholm and the weather here's not really helpful. I do not mind the rain and the snow and I don't like to find excuses but I love photographing light and I always hear you talk about how great photography is to always follow the light. The problem is that Sweden has overcast weather 7 months a year and all my outdoor shots tend to look very boring from a lighting perspective. What can I do to make a shot look more vivid? I like moody shots but I really want my photographs to make people happy sometimes."
Congratulations, they will each receive a beautiful handcrafted camera strap of their choice from our friends at LF Photo. Please visit LF Photo at http://www.lfphoto.ca/ and give them some love!
