He discusses travel to exotic places and what that means for your camera gear, presents a method to customize the fonts and font sizes in your Lightroom interface and he has some thoughts on how contrasts and materials used in lenses lead to different lenses rendering colors in different ways.
Gordon tells us a horror story with a happy ending, Jay has a hint for us about a customer response gallery, George tries to find out how to shoot in bad weather in Lyon, France and Chris finally pulls the curtain to reveal the Lightroom 5 video workshop!
It’s the new year, and one of the bit things coming up is the Everest Trek in May 2014. On this tour Chris, Jon and Monika will take photographers up to Everest Base Camp, through the gorgeous Gokyo valley and as it gets closer, participants are starting to have more questions, about Kathmandu, about travel, about what paperwork is needed, questions how to get around, about what photo gear to bring, about altitude and how that influences your body.. just lots of questions.
To answer some of the questions, Chris invited Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest – and Peter, Chris’ brother for a chat. Peter will be on this year’s Everest Trek and he is the one who will ask the questions.
Join Chris to do some detective work finding out why the Sony RX100 seems to use a really bad Zeiss lens. Look into a smart phone picture and ask yourself seven questions before upgrading to a new camera.
Not that much photography in this episode, even though everything is kind of inter-related. In this last episode of 2013, Chris talks about his five biggest things of 2013, and it’s not about gear: Chris lost 40 pounds of weight, he worked on his financial stability, he turned into a late adopter (and enjoys it), he keeps a keen eye on Bitcoin and in terms of photography (and other things) he has started to adopt going deeper instead of broader. All in themselves quite interesting changes, together they are huge.
