News
Matt talks about shooting basketball and bowl games, and Ryu gets back to work after his new arrival.

Master Class
Current events pre-empted our planned topic for Master Class, and we ended up talking about Sports Illustrated, the layoffs of their full staff of remaining photographers, and the state of professional sports photography.

Training Ground
Training Ground is now on video. If you’d like to participate (and we think you should), enter your pictures in the Flickr thread and make sure to tag them BLFSTG201412.

Training Ground will now be split off from the podcast, and will run approximately two weeks after the podcast.

You Win
You Win is back in 2015, with some changes, and we hope everyone will raise their game. You Win will now be anything goes, but with the new rule that the picture must be taken in the calendar month. Goto our BLFS flickr group page for competition rules and to enter.

Cross-Counter
In honour of the SI staff photographers who lost their jobs, we picked out a couple of pictures by Simon Bruty. Ryu chose this one of the LSU football team and Matt chose this one of the Kentucky Derby.

Special thanks to…
Our producer Robb Massar
