Assignment Desk
Emotions.  Closer, yet still so much more to learn people.  So much more… More people should participate, because it’s, you know, free. For your next assignment, you are responsible for …

Masterclass
… lighting.  Use light to your advantage, don’t make it fuck you up. You know the drill.  Get off your buttocks and get shooting. Sports is about winning and losing. You have to get in there to capture the moment, even if it will cost you your soul.

Pledge QQQs
Questions from the Patreon pledgers:
-Super telephoto lens setting?
-Shooting for multiple agencies in the same country?
-How do I use light when shooting sports?
-Give away pictures for free?
-Matt, where is your favourite spots to shoot football (soccer)?
-Ryu, how do you deal with cowboy hats?

If you are a Patreon pledger, you are entitled to ask one question per episode.  So get asking.
