Try Photofocus Blog and Podcast if you want some stimulating listening and reading. Your host Scott Bourne is very knowledgeable and entertaining. However be prepared for his straight to the point way and  he’s not afraid to call a spade a spade. His co host on the podcast is photographer and writer Rick Sammon .

The podcast comes out every ten days or so (5th 15th 25th) and Scott and Rick answer listener’s questions, that’s what the show is about. It’s quick fire stuff . They both know what they are talking about and whatever your skill level you will learn something.

Two of the questions on the last podcast were about:

  • Should I shoot raw or jpeg.
  • Maco lens versus zoom lens for shooting close ups.

Highly recommended.
