Episode Overview:

This week Adobe released a video on the blog edited entirely in Photoshop. The panel considers this newest capability of an already powerful app – is this feature-bloat, or something necessary?

Sony announced a successor to the Alpha A55, and Tristan Hall discusses what makes the camera so special. Plus, the panel considers whether the high-resolution, 3.2MP-equivalent screen on the new iPad might lead to increased photo piracy due to screen grabs.

There’s a lively discussion on how the panelists got started in the business of photography, and the advice they have on making money with photography for those just starting out.

This episode also features an interview with Photographer, Director, and Author Michael Grecco. Michael talks about his career, his lighting style and his new eBook, Light and the Dramatic Portrait (iTunes link).
