Photofocus Podcast

Join Rich and Scott as they discuss the impact of small format cameras.  Learn how micro four-thirds and mirrorless cameras have changed both their shooting styles.  Plus how have the GoPro and BlackMagic Cinema cameras worked their way into their cameras bags.

The second half of the show will inspire you as we hear from Bert Monroy.  He is considered one of the preeminent pioneers of digital art. He builds his hyper-realistic digital paintings as a traditional artist would, adding color and texture, except he uses Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as his media.

Bert has taught the Adobe Photoshop Creativity Seminar Tour, and he is a popular speaker at many conferences worldwide.
