Podcast Links Page

The podcast does look at the technical elements of photography from time to time, however, the processes of image-making, the photography itself, and the photographers who make those fantastic images are the main focus of the podcast. Generally, the podcast looks at the image, the process of taking photographs, and not the equipment used.
