Hmmm, Adobe

At the Adobe Max conference, some new features for photographers caught the attention of others and since we’re unsure of the benefits, we decided to chat about it. I’m not sure how photographers will feel about changing a photo from morning to night, or adding to removing fog or haze, so it will be interesting to see where this goes and when it appears as an update in CC.

Episode 47, Revisited

One of our friends of the show, Udo, chimed it with some feedback about episode 47 » Giving Back / Volunteer Work. He shared a story of the true power photographs can have. Have a listen to the show as we discuss it a bit. You can also find out more info here (translation may be required for some). Thanks for the 411, Udo! Btw, make sure to check out Udo’s work too!

Black Couch Diaries 

Sometimes we need to just figure things out with photography and we use and abuse the show in the name of discussion. We hope with our struggles and questions comes clarity, not only for ourselves, but for our listeners. We want to discuss the very things y’all think about and often question yourself. This episode is no exception!

Photography Blogs » Pain in the Arse or Necessary?

One of our longtime landscape photographer inspirations very recently chucked his photo blog, stunning many of his followers. His reasoning was simple, but it definitely got us thinking – how important are photography blogs for our career in photography, whether we are working photographers (full or part-time), passionate and dedicated hobbyists or even just starting out? Can these blogs distract our attention and perhaps progress for our work or do the opposite – help us grow as not only photographers, but also communicators? It seems the feeling is often split, so we took to our mics to figure it all out. Or try to. Heh.

Aussie Invasion

We absolutely love all the love from our Aussie listeners, old and new, so thanks for taking the time to check us out, y’all. Awkward high five.

Join the Convo

Ok, let’s hear it – what are your thoughts on the new features from Adobe? Am I being too crotchety and these features are actually a good thing? Do you feel more features like these will take away from the art of making images, or rather compliment it? Would you like to see more features from Adobe? How essential are photography blogs / articles in your eyes? What kind of online presence do you have when it comes to your photography?  Are there any topics you’d like to see discussed on the show? Please send us a note! You can find us on Twitter, Google Plus (haha, no, really), Bookface and of course, y’all can subscribe free via iTunes and the Stitcher app.

Assclown Hackers

Btw, we apologize for the delay in publishing the show … hackers are keeping us on our toes once again (ah, the internet), so WordPress took action and prevented us from publishing on time … mucho sorry.

Thanks as always for tuning in, mates!

Cheers, y’all!
