How can a photograph be a weapon? We cover the somber truths on how image making today can be (and often is) used for nefarious purposes.
Do you have the lifestyle of a creative, yet are feeling inadequate compared to your peers who do not? You love what you do and you’re happy, but yet, you still have that feeling of envy as they just bought their new Porsche or that nice house while you’re driving a 15 year old clunker and live in a studio apartment. How do Jaron and I feel about this? We share our feelings on this story and give some insight into our backgrounds as well.
We also cover Canon’s new announcements, Sony A7R II reviews that actually don’t praise it as the end all be all, Instagram’s new aspect ratios, Wiz Khalifa on a hover board, and video stabilization that makes Jaron want to change his pants!
