The 10 Most Watched Videos Posted by the Art of Photography


One of the rising stars in the world of photography media is the show The Art of Photography, a podcast on iTunes and a channel on YouTube. It was launched by photographer Ted Forbes back in October 2008, and has been growing in popularity quite a bit as of late — so much so that the channel has become a full-time gig for Forbes.

In a video posted this past Friday, the photographer shares about the shows journey and how he has decided to take the plunge and quit his job at the Dallas Museum of Art:

In case you haven’t heard of The Art of Photography before, here’s an introduction to it in the form of the 10 most popular videos Forbes has posted so far:

#1: Nikon D7100

#2: Medium Format Photography

#4: Metering for Night Photography

    I follow Ted’s channel and really enjoy it. If you haven’t seen it check it out. I really enjoy his videos on various photographers and overviews of different film cameras.

  • Bill Binns

    This is a great show. It’s kind of too bad that his top rated video is a digital camera review because that is not what the show is about. His episode on developing and scanning film at home inspired me to give it a try for the first time in 30 years. I am now regularly processing black & white and color film at home and having a ball shooting with my 70+ year old Zeis Ikon camera. I particulalry like his profiles of famous photographers.

  • David Liang

    I absolutely love his analog related stuff.

    Has anyone noticed the cat’s paw at the back of his head on “Metering for Night Photography” around 3:15?, it’s irrelevant but funny.

    Althought Ted Forbes’ camera videos are great, what I enjoy about The Art of Photoraphy in the first place are those about influental photographers, about composition, about those more general questions regarding photographic medium. Great videocast, Ted is a great presenter.

  • James Tarry

    totally agree. I just came across him by accident after searching for some 4×5 advice, been lost in his videos every since.

  • David Brookover

    Ted`s shows are always well thought out and articulate. Sad to see that the top 10 listings here only deal with the cameras and hardware. Perhaps in the near future the more important message of ART will make its way to the higher positions.
