News – Our best and worst shoots this past month.
Ryu claims not to have had any good shoots, and hated shooting Arsenal v Olympique Marseille in the Champions League. Matt was shooting NFL most of the month which was good, but shot NHL hockey for the first time in several months and had a bit of a hard time getting the timing back.
We introduce… Kurt Rogers
Ryu and Matt interview Kurt Rogers of Think Tank Photo, maker of great bags and accessories for photographers. Kurt tells us about his history as a daily news photographer and his transition into making the bags that you’ll see on sidelines and around the waists of professional photographers everywhere.
Ryu and Matt talk about techniques and things to keep in mind when shooting in low light.
In Training Ground Training Ground we critique pictures from listeners who bravely ask for it in our Flickr group.
