This week, Walt Kippenhuck, David Kirkpatrick and myself all weigh in on the RAW file conundrum, and I’m content with what I’ve learned.
Tony White told us about Excire, a plugin for Lightroom which fills in metadata based on image recognition. Despite my assertion on the podcast that I would look forward to trying it out, I have since realised that it is MacOS only. That’s it…. they’re off my Christmas card list!
Steve Peters shared the writings of Dylan Goldby on the tyranny of the travel photographer.
I came across this story on Popular Photography about the portraiture of Gregory Heilser, which had a couple of great tips for the aspiring portrait photographer.
Peter Sambell wrote in about Glynn’s critique of my last shoot, and to share the story of some amazing (and award-winning) drone photography.
Carl shared this list of the biggest mistakes each camera manufacturer has made.
I mentioned the Sony Alpha Rumours site.
David Marland pops in for another book review, this time: “Galen Rowell – A Retrospective”.
Pick it up from Amazon, or from Galen’s Mountain Light site.
Then, I chat with Cait Breslin, Chief Operating Officer and Co-founder of LocalAventura. If you’re considering a holiday/tour anywhere in Latin America, they will hook you up with local guides who are passionate and knowlegable about your area of interest.
And as Cait said, they will happily spend 30 minutes discussing your plans, even if you don’t end up going with them, just because they want you to arrive prepared. Hit ’em up here!
